Hillary and Thomas were married on the most spectacular Fall day in Napa, CA at the beautiful Solage Resort in Calistoga. The day was executed to perfection by the talented Simone Lennon Events who planned and designed the wedding, bringing together a dream team of vendors including, Loop Flowers and Yonder Design.
It was destination wedding for the bride and groom who came in from TX for an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family. Simone Lennon used the Fall landscape as inspiration and Loop Flowers created lush Fall inspired florals in tones of orange, pinks and yellows. The bride wore an embellished Vera Wang gown, which she paired with heirloom jewelry including a pearl necklace the bride’s mom wore on her wedding day and a watch made into a cuff her grandmother wore on her wedding day. The bride’s mother wore Carolina Herrera in robin egg’s blue to match the bridesmaids and also wore many heirloom jewelry pieces passed down from her mother who they honored with a photograph tied to the bouquet.
Yonder Design created an elegant white and gold invitation suite and save the date with a custom logo for the couple and letter pressed the pattern of the tablecloths on to the back of the suites and the envelopes were lined with a tan linen fabric. Yonder created a slate bar menu using their same logo to show off their custom cocktails and printed letterpressed menus with hand calligraphed names at the top acting as place cards for the guests. A whimsical element was brought to the day with the larger than life escort card display at the entrance with hand torn paper cards.
Loop Flowers transformed the all white space with a large floral and light bulb installation over the dance floor which created a wow moment when everyone entered from cocktail hour. A custom white dance floor was created to match the clean aesthetic and bright pops of florals lined the tables with orange velvet napkins and bowls with fresh pomegranates, figs and kumquats. Each place setting had a beautiful mini arrangement tied with ribbon sitting atop the menu, which was flanked with grey and gold flatware. Guests danced the night away under the floral canopy, enjoying cake and cocktails out on the patio by the fireplace when a break from dancing was needed.
