Michelle & Kyle's Champagne Luncheon – Part 1

On November 21, 2009, Michelle & Kyle exchanged wedding vows before 110 guests in the handsomely appointed Colt Room of Granite Bay Golf Club. This was a daytime wedding, but the rich dark wood panelling, and the ability to close the window shades made for an intimate, romantic, candlelit ceremony. Judge Tom Cecil always does a nice job with the ceremony.
I love the colors Michelle chose for the bridesmaids dresses… her MOH wore sage green with brown ribbon sash, and her two bridesmaids a chocolate dress with sage green sash. The ever-so-talented Katie Edwards of Ambience Floral Designcreated fantastic bouquets to compliment the dresses – perfectly!
The Champagne Luncheon reception held in the Conservatory was beautiful! I enjoy creating a “Great Table” for the bridal party’s head table, and this one was set for 10.
With a gentle nod to the fall season, the table linens fromCelebrations Party Rentals were ivory with a tone-on-tone leaf pattern, walnut Chivari chairs added richness to the room, and the sage green and brown color scheme was prevalent in the florals. A unique collection of glassware, including a large apothecary jar, candy bowl, and candlesticks completed the tablescape.
Each guest received a beautifully wrapped favor box containing a juicy, fat, chocolate covered strawberry!
Karen’s Bakery created the truly lovely wedding cake – such beautiful chocolate brown scroll work, and look at those stunning sugar flowers (girls… don’t they look real?)

Michelle and Kyle were so happy and even though the morning was a chilly one, they soaked up the warmth of their love while spending time on one of the lovely bridges on the grounds of Granite Bay Golf Club.
Congrats you two… a beautiful wedding, for a beautiful couple!
My sincere appreciation to Gino of Gino Greglia Photography for capturing all the details (and with such clarity!) I’ll have Part 2 up in a few more days… showing more details and some of the fun good time.
