Kevin, a U.S. Army man stationed in Tennessee contacted me to assist with long distance wedding planning. After we chatted and I heard quite a few “M’ams” (good boy), then I had more indepth conversations with Liz. I adored this couple; so easy to work with and please. Liz was extremely laid back and Kevin was only too happy to marry his high school sweetheart. Liz had the color palette nailed down -“eggplant and robin’s egg blue” and their venue was selected – Karmere Winery in Amador County (both went to high school in San Andreas and knew the area well). This is Karmere Winery’s ceremonial area, with no decor – gorgeous, right?
And here we are for Liz and Kevin’s wedding ceremony. Notice how we incorporated the theme of the landscape topiaries into the existing aisle urns. Floral designer Dawn of Natural Flair is so clever and talented -these look terrific – as all her floral creations did for this wedding.
A great friend played a vintage accordian as Liz walked down the aisle – it was fun, unique and sweetly sentimental.
Not wanting a traditional wedding reception, but more of a strolling party with finger foods, Beth Sogaard Catering whipped up fantastic pulled pork sliders, fresh tomato bruschetta, and a heavenly creamy macaroni and cheese martini bar – with all the fixin’s. For dessert Liz requested chocolate mousse to be served with the wedding cake – fantastic!!
My gift to my couples – this set of vintage forks read “I Do Me Too” – so cute!
Their Wish Tree “guest book” was a big hit and I loved how Dawn created hanging lies as a nod to their honeymoon destination.
The end to a glorious evening, and the beginning of a wonderful married life!
And many thanks to Jordan of Jordan Zink Photography for being on hand to capture all the pretties!
