Nikki and Kevin threw a stunning destination wedding next to the vineyards at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA. The couple are originally from Los Angeles but now live in New Orleans. They knew they had to return home to LA to tie the knot with their friends and family and their shared love of wine brought them to Saddlerock Ranch at Malibu Wines. The bride and groom even incorporated wine into their ceremony, pouring a glass for each other and toasting during the ceremony. The couple had a large wedding party with over 10 bridesmaids and groomsmen each and decided to let all the girls pick out their own white dresses making for a beautiful fashion moment! The couple was also joined by their one and a half year old daughter who made the most adorable flower girl and even joined them on the dance floor for some late night partying after a catnap during dinner.
The day was planned and designed by the bride’s sister who helped pick every detail from the plates to the invite suite. The ceremony was held down on the lower lawn right in front of the vines and was followed by a cocktail hour during golden hour with delicious passed hors d’ouerves and cocktails. The couple set up 5 lounge areas all over the cocktail space so guests would have plenty of room to spread out and relax to watch the sunset and later take a break during dancing. They set up escort cards on a vintage wagon hanging on twine with a Polaroid next to it so as each guest removed their escort card they replaced it with a photograph of themselves. Long farm tables were set up for the reception surrounding the dance floor with chandeliers and twinkle lights hanging from the trees above. Guests were welcomed to their seats with individual slabs of agate hand calligraphed with their names. A dessert table was set up nearby with a white and gold flecked cake and cake pops, macarons, cookie bars and other treats surrounding it. Guests enjoyed a lovely evening of dinner and dancing beneath the twinkle lights.
