From The Bride...Planning was fairly relaxed, other than a few wedding party glitches and eccentric family members everything went pretty smoothly. We wanted our wedding to be the same, just about the celebration. We wanted it to be whimsical and dreamy. The first thing we did was to pick our colors. I knew I wanted mint and ivory with touches of gold and coral. Relaxed, vintage romance, like a 1950s summer's afternoon.

The first thing we booked was our venue, and we chose Summerhill Pyramid Winery because of the beautiful setting and many options for photo locales, including a "homestead" and old mint truck. The reception venue was cozy, complete with wooden doors and oak barrels. This combination provided the perfect backdrop for the day. We then found our photographers and the â??visionâ? all came together. They were just like our dream wedding - fun and full of love.

We decided to have all of the guys in suspenders and slacks, all light and airy, sleeves rolled up. The girls wore mint lace dresses of their own choosing. We weren't sure how it was all going to come together until the day of, but it worked!

I wore an ivory lace over champagne satin Jim Hjelm gown. It was the first one I tried on and definitely fit the bill. I went with an "old hollywood" look for hair and makeup and I carried a whimsical bouquet of White Mums, Coral & Light Peach Roses & Seeded Eucalyptus.

I wanted soft candle light in mason jars to mimic fireflies around the venue with the sun setting in the background. We had country music, strawberry cupcakes, and little pots of golden honey for guests to take home. We put together a thumbprint tree, handmade quilt guest book and advice cards to help us remember the day.

The result was one that exceeded even our expectations and left us with fond memories for life.
