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.

How perfect is it that her bouquet matches the colors of the sunset?

This couple didn’t let a little rain spoil their night! They can tough out any storm together.

We loved this couple’s private little dance within the vineyard. So romantic!

Peek-a-boo! This veiled kiss is just the cutest.

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

The barrels are such a fun backdrop for this stolen moment!

 

 

 

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.

Napa Valley Summer Weddings – Warm Days and Warm Hearts!

Summer is right around the corner, and we’re loving all this warm weather we’ve been having! One of the reasons this sunshine is so great is because it opens up a lot of opportunities for some gorgeous outdoor weddings. Take a peek here at some of our favorite set ups! Special thanks to photographer Alexander Rubin for helping us capture them!

Nothing says sunshine quite like yellow! We love the playfulness of this hombre flower-petal aisle, especially in contrast to the sophisticated wrought-iron chairs.

Lawn weddings are quintessentially summery, and the sunflowers with pops of red make this wedding whimsical and fun! The mix-matched ultra-comfy seats are a casual and unique twist too.

Vineyards are the perfect backdrop to a rustic, country-themed wedding, and we this set up is the perfect match for that! Our favorite part is the red truck, which is actually a cooler! That truck puts the “fun” in functional!

One of the best things about summer is the warm summer nights! Twinkling lights in the dark are so romantic, so we’re happy it’s warm enough to stay outside and enjoy them!
