Glamourous tented wedding at Viansa Winery in Sonoma..featured on Style Me Pretty!

We are ecstatic that this romantic, pretty and dreamy wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty today!  I loved Ester and Brian as a couple, they were one of those couples that you knew were just crazy about each other and that's my favorite kind of love.  They were also so immensely sweet as people and had such sweet souls.  One of the things that I loved most about them was that they let us run away with the design and trusted our design aesthetic and all of the crazy ideas that we threw at them.  Trust is and will always be, the most important factor in any relationship (especially with your vendors) and when trust is present, amazing things happen.  We had an amazing group of vendors that helped pull the entire design together (see credits below) and had one of my personal favorites, Jen Huang, capture the day in the most beautiful way.  See the full feature here.

For their wedding, they really wanted something that was romantic and dreamy.  Being that their venue was set in beautiful Sonoma, we wanted to create something that was just that with lots of lace, ribbons, chiffon, and flowers in every way that we can use them (traditional, hanging, garlands....my kind of couple!).  With every great design, we started out by creating an inspiration board of the overall aesthetic that we wanted to achieve.

We then carefully designed, created and brought in all the details that would create their romantic and dreamy day.

I absolutely ADORED this invitation suite that we created for them that was perfectly blush and gold.  We added a glitter gold belly band to tie everything together to add some extra bling.

This Ceremony backdrop that we created is definitely a favorite of mine with a floral garland on top with hanging blooms and globes and pink drapes!

Loved the hand painted sign that our team created for them.

The simplest of adornments can really dress up a bar to make it really special, in this case, we used floral garlands.

For the Escort Cards, we created a wall of hanging ribbons that we attached escort cards to, adorned with foliage and hanging blooms.  This one was a showstopper!

This reception was an absolute STUNNER with the chandeliers under the tent with chiffon and tulle.  I loved the hand painted Bride and Groom chairs that we created for the couple.
