Oh my! This stylish Sonoma soiree is delightful and then some. Held at the Buena Vista Winery – California’s first premium winery founded in 1857 – this beautiful historical vineyard radiates with rustic charm.

 

From Ashley’s fabulous fishtail frock, glittering gold accessories and statement shrug to the gorgeous gold sequin bridesmaid dresses this sure is one fashionable occasion.

 

Beautifully chic natural décor and charming details were teamed with pretty personal touches to ensure that their day was breathtakingly elegant.

 

Oh and I almost forgot to mention the Bubble Room! Yes, there was a room in the wine caves purely dedicated to champagne – now that’s my kinda wedding reception!

Ashley says:

“From day one, we were insistent that our wedding be an intimate homage to those we love and owe our relationship to. We recognized that it was our day, but really wanted to make our guests feel as though they were participating in something more special than ‘just a wedding’. We felt it was particularly important to honor our families…those present and those no longer with us, including my father. We knew that by surrounding ourselves with those who are important to us, we would have the most amazing day of our lives, to date.”

“As a wine country native and a former Utah native, we have had the privilege of growing up with nature and have had the outdoors play a huge role in our lives. We knew we wanted to make our wedding rustic, chic and elegant by standing by the motto ‘less is more’.”

“There were a few key elements that were really special to us, including a freestanding trifold that housed family wedding portraits, fun facts about us and seating cards. We put countless hours into making this board a focal point and a representation of us. The seating cards were all handmade, including feathers hand dipped in gold paint, and embossing done by my team of nearest and dearest…aka True Emerald Styling.”

“Another big component of our wedding was the hand painted wood boards with quotes that we found to be inspirational and representative of us…including but not limited to Audrey Hepburn and Dr. Seuss.”

“And how can we forget…The Bubble Room! We had an entire room in the wine caves dedicated to champagne and decked to the nines in white and gold!”
