Weddings in Wine Country

We love wine country weddings. What can we say, we're a sucker for gorgeous weather, great lighting and awesome venues. Last year a couple contacted us to help with "month-of" wedding coordination. We were more than happy to oblige, especially when we found out the location. The wedding was took place at Solage in Calistoga - A scenic, hip resort on the Silverado Trail. Luckily for us, our bride and groom were super organized, knew exactly what they wanted, so once the day was upon us, they let us take the reigns.

Our bride and groom also really liked the idea of a candy bar featuring some of their favorite candies in their favorite colors; brown, purple & green. We helped the happy couple source the candy, order it and set up the bar on the day of with apothecary jars & scoops provided by Stacey & Company.

Our crafty bride made her own jam & printed up recipes for her guests.

We also helped our bride source designs for her program fans, menus, place cards & table markers. She was able to pull it all together and it turned out beautifully.

"Month-of wedding coordination" involves as much or as little hand-holding that our couple needs the month before their event. In this case, our bride & groom were very organized and knew what they wanted, but just needed some moral support & guidance. We had several meetings, attended a tasting, ran the rehearsal and supervised all set-up on the day-of. The event went off without a hitch and the happy couple are now living happily ever after.

Special thanks to Zach of Zach Anderson Photography. It was a real pleasure working with you!
