The Barn at Tyge William Cellars Wedding: Brooke & Peter

Update: Brooke and Peter's wedding has been published on Inspired by This! Be sure to check out the feature for more images from their beautiful day. 

I had the honor of getting to design the very first wedding that took place at the brand new Tyge William Cellars barn earlier this year, so I was over the moon when Brooke and Peter asked me to coordinate their wedding there this September! Brooke and Peter are one of the sweetest couples I've had the chance to work with, and Brooke has an incredible sense of style, so I knew their wedding day was going to be not only filled with love, but also beautiful details. 

One of Tyge William's many great features is the gorgeous spot from where the ceremony takes place. Vineyard views for days with the mountains in the background make for a special spot. Brooke really wanted a clean, white and green palette that would highlight the natural beauty of the space, and keep everything feeling bright and airy.  For ceremony, they kept things simple and elegant by adorning a wooden arch with billowy chiffon drapes and soft greenery.

For cocktail hour, we created several lounge vignettes so that guests could enjoy the big lawn off the barn. I'm still swooning over the antique wooden bar in the corner - it came from Chateau Sonoma, which is just across the way at Cornerstone. They often lend larger pieces of furniture to the venue since they are so close by. Such a great perk! 

Brooke and Peter really loved the more casual feel of long communal tables for dinner, which worked especially well with the super high ceilings in the barn. Crystal chandeliers gave the space a gorgeous glow and helped fill the vertical space. And of course, white farm tables and chairs, decorated with long garlands of greenery. 

I love how perfectly the simple, elegant, 3-tiered cake fit with the rest of the decor. Sometimes simple truly is best. 

Sandra of White Ivory Photography captured these two so beautifully! How romantic is that veil blowing in the wind?!

Congratulations, Brooke and Peter!

Charlotte & Eric | City Hall & Dogpatch WineWorks

Excited to finally have a chance to share some images from Charlotte and Eric's fun two-day celebration at City Hall and Dogpatch WineWorks! I often hear from engaged couples that during the planning process they struggle with how to decide between having an intimate wedding with just those who are closest to them, versus a larger more inclusive event. Charlotte and Eric got the best of both worlds by holding their ceremony at City Hall with close friends and family, and then holding a larger reception the next day at Dogpatch WineWorks. City Hall is such a great place to elope because it's not only cost effective but also an incredibly beautiful and iconic setting. There are gorgeous places to take photos all over that building and the light is always amazing. Lily of the Valley created Charlotte's sweet bouquet. I love how the yellow billy balls and flowering mimosa tie in with all the golden tones of the space!

Dogpatch WineWorks has a great modern, rustic-chic feel and Charlotte chose design details that complemented the space perfectly. Charlotte and Eric also chose to donate their flower arrangements (made by the bride herself) to Random Acts of Flowers, an awesome non-profit in the Bay Area that upcycles flowers and gives them to individuals in healthcare facilities who could use some cheering up. Such a cool thing to do!

With the guys from Dart DJ behind the turntables and Betty Zlatchin Catering serving up delicious bites, it was a perfect party in the city. And just goes to show that you can have your cake and eat it too when it comes to planning your wedding!
