Oh how I love Gloria and Wayne! These two are my adorable lovebirds from NYC who had their first vacation together in Napa...who loved it so much that they returned to Napa to get engaged at Auberge du Soleil...who ultimately returned to Auberge du Soleil to get married! Inspired by a neutral color palette of peaches and greys, we wanted to pay homage to the cities that the couple spent their residencies at and the people that they spent their time with for their beautiful destination wedding in Rutherford, CA. The bride loved accents of lace so we used lace as a base design motif that anchored their overall design via their invitations, an adornment for her bouquet, the escort board display, napkin wraps for their table settings and the prettiest cake design ever.
G+W were a couple that really cared about creating a customized experience for their guests through design (our favorite kind of couples!) so we created custom coasters that had their favorite movie quotes on them and created buttons with the skyscraper of each guest's table that the guests were able to take home as a momento. As an alternative to the ordinary guestbook, we created skyscraper silhouettes that the guests were able to sign to ultimately create a city skyline for the couple as a keepsake of the most important people in their lives who were present on their big day of love. For whimsy, we included large balloons with tassels made by our team and little smore kits for guests to roast at the conclusion of the evening. This one's a tastefully curated, day of love. Enjoy!
