Sandra and Amar knew of one another in high school but never connected. Unbeknown to Sandra, Amar secretly always had a thing for her and it wasn't until they both moved to New York, separately, that Amar gathered the courage to finally make his move and make Sandra his. Since they both grew up in California and their families still resided in California, they decided to get married at the Vintage Estate in Yountville. Inspired by the beautiful cuisine of Napa Valley and being that Sandra herself is in the wholesale foods business in New York, they wanted to infuse farm elements into their wedding by using herbs, fruits and vegetables as a design accent. We had a blast incorporating these details into the design of their day and our pal, Delbarr Moradi, captured the details beautifully for you to enjoy below!
To incorporate the farm to table element into their wedding day, we created a wooden wall that had each guest's name strung to it with natural herbs used for cooking such as rosemary, thyme, basil and lavender.
For the reception, we chose a really light and fresh palette of lavender and cremes and incorporated artichokes into the floral design with the help of Ahana Design. Each guest had a fig at their place setting and also had a crossword puzzle that was custom created by our team for guests to entertain themselves with. On the back of the crossword puzzle was a marriage advice card that they used in lieu of a guestbook. Watercolor menus were displayed on mini easels to further create the feeling of a natural and organic, farm to table feel.
Each guest was given a bottle of wine that was custom blended for the couple...how lucky were the guests! Perfect Endings helped create the most beautiful watercolor cake in hues of lavenders and blues.
The evening was such a beautiful affair held under bistro lights in Napa Valley. Thank you, Sandra and Amar, for having us along to celebrate your love!
