A California Vineyard Wedding

Love this beautiful wedding! Just stunning, especially the amazing pagola, just breath-takingly beautiful!

From the Bride… From the moment Greg and I got engaged I was completely over-the-moon with excitement.  After contemplating the idea of having a small and intimate beach wedding, we ended up deciding on having a larger wedding closer to home so that we could share this special day with all those who mean so much to us.  We began scoping out different venues and when we came across Concannon Winery we both fell in love and knew this was exactly what we envisioned for our wedding day.  It was such a beautiful venue with many different elements that made it perfect for Greg and I.  It had a gorgeous Victorian house (the Glen Ellen home) for the ceremony, a beautiful vine covered arbor for dinner and my husband’s favorite, the barrel room with large wine casks for the reception.  The venue was surrounded by hills covered in vineyards which gave it such a romantic and elegant feel.
When picking out many of the details for our wedding, I wanted the day to feel very romantic with small handmade touches to give it a more personalized feel.  I love the relaxed and vintage feel of burlap and twine so for some of our centerpieces my mom and I wrapped mason jars with twine and added a cute little bow, then staggered them around the table on small wooden blocks.  Through the planning process, ETSY and I became best friends, finding many great ideas to incorporate into our day like our love bird cake topper, that I absolutely adore, our burlap signs, and the Mr. and Mrs. Signs for our chairs.  Greg and I were also very lucky to have his Aunt Allie (a local artist) to paint a tree to match the one on our invitation as our sign-in for our guests.Our florist Nicole was also amazing and was able to capture my vision perfectly.  She used a combination of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and lisianthus, with sage green foliage to give it a romantic and soft feel.  I couldn’t have been happier with the florals.  She did an amazing job!
Looking back I have so many amazing memories of our day, from the excitement and overwhelming happiness I felt when I first saw Greg, how on an extremely cloudy day the sky opened up and the sun shined down as we said our vows, and how all our family and friends celebrated the night away.  It was the most amazing night of our lives and Tanja our photographer captured that day exactly how I remembered it, she is truly amazing at what she does and I couldn’t imagine a better way to be able to look back and remember those memories. Our day was perfect thanks to all of our amazing vendors, family and friends.  Without their love and support, our wedding would never have been so special.
