Wed Me Wednesday : Authentic + Fluid Napa Valley Wedding Design

Today’s Wed Me Wednesday is a real treat and also a breath of fresh air! The design in this beautiful wedding is both unusual and sophisticated in its gentle ambiance. What we really love about this wedding is that the whole motif feels very authentic and natural, bringing out the genuine style of the couple.

The décor melds perfectly with the outdoor environment of the venue and each element ties into the next. We adore the berry and unusual greens in various vases throughout the event — from cocktail to reception. And the bride and groom themselves are absolutely charming! Check out this truly gorgeous nuptial event and gather inspiration for your own wedding or holiday parties.

Linens Featured: Ritz Chestnut [Milano Collection], Dupionique Ivory [Dupioniques Collection]

 

Top 5 Things We Love:

5. Ceremony set-up [flowing fabric, natural setting, stately flower arrangements]

4. Table décor [color scheme, singular green stems, linen]

3. Elevated style of whole event [floral + berry arrangements, natural color scheme, collector's automobile]

2. Charming bride + groom [see photos!]

1. Effortless yet intentional sense of design [bouquet ribbons, tablescape, vines in ceremony canopy]

 

This refreshing décor composition encourages fluid, effortless design that calls upon authentic, natural elements with your own sense of style.

Marvel Me Monday : A Venue of Ice

This Marvel Me Monday we have a truly spectacular scene from Hotel de Glace — an actual hotel made out of ice! Never heard of it? Well, it’s reconstructed every year during the Winter months in Quebec, Canada, and you can stay there from January through March.

Like the delicateness and brilliance of the holiday season, perhaps the transience of this space makes it all the more beautiful…
