From the bride, Marisa...
It all started with the invitation. We were having a tough time drawing inspiration for our winery wedding, until we saw and fell in love with our invitation. Titled 'The Perfect Pear...' it was simple and looked hand drawn, and I felt was just really special. We pulled the chocolate browns, pear greens, and cream colors from the invitation and started with that.
My goal for the wedding was for it to just be romantic, and beautiful, and kind of whimsical. I am not a super cookie cutter girl as far as this kind of stuff goes, so I tried to stay as far away from that kind of stuff as possible. We didn't have a real theme...I wanted the location and back drop of the Livermore valley to speak for it's self.
I gave all of the above information to my florist and just told her to go with it, which was a little scary, but she set up our ceremony area exactly as I had imagined it in my head, and everything else ended up beautiful as well.
