I can't decide if it's the girly girl within me, or that the color is just simply always gorgeous, but either way, I never get sick of blush. It makes my heart flutter and combined with these dark tabletops and white roses, this wedding is picture perfect. Weddings By Sasha captured it all, and Reel Eyes Media made sure to bring the romance. Join me as I swoon over every beautiful detail right here.

From Shannon Leahy Events... Leslie and Paul were one of the most in love and kindest couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They met at a friends Super Bowl party and after years of bachelorhood in San Francisco, Paul instantly knew that she was the one. He loved her family values, her fun-loving personality and of course, was struck by her beauty. Not too long after their courtship began, Paul proposed to Leslie at their favorite Napa getaway, Meadowood and they decided to get married there the following Fall.

Leslie is a girly girl at heart so we had to use white and blush roses, lots of lace and sweeping, romantic decor. We brought in the rustic Napa Valley and Paul's masculine side with lots of touches of dark wood. The ceremony on the golf course was absolutely lovely, framed by their large bridal party of friends and family.

One of my favorite details for this wedding arose out of finding a solution for keeping guests out of the dinner space. Since the cocktail hour and dinner lawn were connected but we didn't want guests to enter until it was time, we hedged off the space and created a grand entry with a simple sign "Good things come to those who wait." The purpose, of course, was to urge guests to wait until dinner, but it also served as a beautiful reminder of Paul and Leslie's love that they both waited for many years.

Individual roses on each place setting mirrored the rose wine served at dinner. A macaroon station and cake from Perfect Endings for dessert and a sparkler exit made for a gorgeous evening in the Napa Valley.
