From Charmed Events Group... Lindsey and Joe are the epitome of what a Southern couple should be: beautiful, charming, hospitable and so, so sweet!  They moved to Northern California for work, got engaged and soon began planning their destination wedding in Northern, CA for their guests, all of whom were flying in from the South and the Midwest.  The most important thing to them when looking for a venue, was to find a location that was breathtakingly beautiful and quintessentially California.  When they found Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside, CA, they knew that they had found the perfect place as it had sweeping panoramic views of the entire Bay Area and, it was a vineyard!

For their wedding, we wanted to keep the design modern and fresh while still keeping some Southern touches of hospitality.  We chose a color palette of mint green, amethyst purple and grey chevron and chose to accent it with lots of whimsical details, new and old. Last but not least, Lindsey and Joe had the time of their life surrounded by their family and friends who traveled so far to celebrate with them.  They danced all night to nothing but country and beamed from ear to ear the entire night.

Our favorite things:

-For the ceremony, one of our favorite detail touches was the birch altar adorned in lush flowers and lace. Sparkly Ribbon wands were created for guests to congratulate the happy couple.

-For a creative escort display, we created a curtain of individual hanging flowers for each guest to have. This was a huge hit with everyone!

-Wooden Table Numbers mounted on alternating fabrics to give a modern, mis-match feel to the table.

-Purple colored glasses at the table were the perfect compliment to the mint green napkins wrapped in hemp, dressed with a sprig of rosemary

-Our favors were handstamped brown paper bags that had an individually wrapped apple pie bar.  This paid homage to their Southern Roots and was a favorite treat for all

-Their geometric cake was a stunner!
