Nick and Marie’s Wine Country Wedding

Wedding season is definitely in full swing! We’ve been having so much fun working with all the brides and grooms to help them pull off their dream-wedding. All of them have been so special, and we want to share some with you! Here’s a little inside-view of Nick and Marie’s wedding a few weeks ago! Thanks to Colson Griffith Photography for sharing these photos with us!

It rained all day prior to their evening nuptials, but the sun came out just before the ceremony began. I think that stroke of luck means good things for their future, and definitely led to some awesome photos!

One of the most fun parts of each wedding is meeting the family. This little ring bearer was such a cutie!

Romantic Moments at a Wine Country Wedding

Call it sappy, but here at V. Sattui we just love love! We can’t help it, we’re hopeless romantics! There’s nothing sweeter than the happiness between two love birds joining their lives together, and we’re lucky to get to witness it so often. We’ve seen so many beautiful and romantic moments, and we want to share them with you! Here are some of our favorites.

Sometimes you just need a moment away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding to enjoy each other’s company.

Making Centerpieces the Center of Attention at your Destination Wedding!

Here at V. Sattui, we love it when brides get creative with their centerpieces. The wedding meal is such an important part of the celebration, and the table decorations can really make a huge statement! These days, brides are steering clear of bland and boring flower vase designs and old school decorations like mirrors and floating candles, and instead coming up with much more unique ideas that show more of their personality. Here are some of our favorites that we’ve seen!

Forget the vase, these candelabra-based flower arrangements are way trendier! The height really elevates –pun intended—the elegance of the table, and we love having flowers and leaves trickle down from above.

Speaking of adding height to the tables, check out these beautiful branch decorations! The hanging flowers and crystals helped make this look extra magical.

We love how these Disney-themed and rustic-themed weddings went for a non-traditional approach by opting for centerpieces that weren’t just flowers! The silhouettes and the barrels were such creative touches.

Wineries and Weddings, A Match Made in Heaven (AKA Wine Country)

Vineyards and wineries have long evoked notions of romance. Their rustic, vintage charm and earthy atmosphere create a magical setting unlike any other. It’s no surprise that an increasing number of brides-to-be are jumping on the winery wedding bandwagon these days, especially in California. Here at V. Sattui, we’re proud to share our beautiful landscape with our brides and grooms, and are thrilled to help make their special day extra beautiful. We love every aspect of the weddings we host here in wine country, but we’ll narrow it down here to our top 5 favorite reasons! Also, special thanks to photographers Richard Wood and Ken Viale for capturing these moments!
1. Gorgeous Landscapes in Every Season
Between the lush green leaves of spring and summer, the spectacular crimson and gold leaves of fall, and the delicate cover crop flowers of winter, our vineyards serve as a stunning backdrop during every season!

4. We Love Wine!
Everyone looks forward to sipping on something delicious at a wedding, and winery weddings definitely cater to that need! In a time when the “farm to table” trend is so popular, why not carry it through with “vineyard to glass”?

5. Wineries Offer Unique and Personal Options for Décor
It’s fun to tie in decorations and party favors with the theme of the venue!

Sweet Emotions at V Sattui Winery Weddings

Weddings are truly joyous occasions. The dresses, the food, reuniting with friends and family, and all the other details that come together in a wedding, all add up to a really great party. Weddings are more than just a fun party though, they’re also very personal and emotional. At V. Sattui, we’re lucky to get to share these emotions with our couples by laughing along with their funny memories, witnessing moments that tug at our heartstrings, and experiencing what makes each couple unique. Here are a few of our favorite memories, captured by photographers Richard Wood and Ken Viale, that display some of these emotions.

This groom, overcome with emotion, can’t believe his luck when he sees his bride for the first time.

Though it is amazing to be surrounded by friends and family, it’s important to take a moment to catch your breath and cherish the special moments before you say “I do”.

Spring Weddings Are In The Air at V. Sattui!

We can hardly contain ourselves as our spring weddings are right around the corner! A huge thank you to photographers: Ken Viale, Richard Wood, and Marie A Rummel, for sharing the images below.  Their artful eyes capture the magic of these unforgettable moments!

Spring in Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful times of the year.  You’ll find pretty yellows, greens, pink and classic ivories –all of which make us want to exclaim “I do”!

The combination of new buds in bloom and clean, fresh air also makes taking photos a breeze. Add in Napa Valley’s golden sunsets, and you see why V. Sattui is the perfect destination for blissful beginnings.

Ooh, and the breeze carries the aromas of our fresh lavender !  All the more reason to sneak one last kiss before the ceremony.

The wild mustards glow almost as bright as the look in our couples’ eyes as they enjoy their first moments in wedded bliss. Are you ready to go mad for our mustard? #mustardmadness

But, nothing shines as bright as the smiles and lightheartedness of bridesmaids who are giddy from the aromas of fresh roses.

In April we get to reunite with our favorite Michelin-star Italian chef, Stefano Masanti, and his beautiful partner in life, and in all things gourmet, Raffa!   From April into November they will create unforgettable wedding receptions at V. Sattui including Stefano’s creative, delicious cuisine and Raffa’s attention to every detail in the service and decoration of each couples’ dream day.

C’mon Spring Fever!  We are ready!  Have any spring V. Sattui wedding moments you’d like to share?  We’d love to hear from you!
