Start off by inviting a few of your nearest and dearest to a bed and breakfast – like the Chalfant House. This magnificently restored, old time home is located in Bishop California, a small western town in the shadow of the Majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains Range.

Wedding Breakfast Menu Ideas

For the perfect meal have a pancake bar with breakfast sides like scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, Greek yogurt, and fresh seasonal fruit. For Beverages serve orange, cranberry and grapefruit juices along with fresh brewed coffee. After a lovely breakfast it is time to get ready for the wedding.

Vintage dishes were mix matched and stacked four plates high. The chalices were filled with berries and champagne. We made a crepe cake alternating crepe and whipped cream topped with berries and sugar. It was the perfect way to start the first morning of being newlyweds!

From Mint Design:
We got our inspiration from the lush color of berries. Deep reds, merlots, plums, ruby’s, navy blue, and sapphires set the tone for our styled bridal shoot. Tucked away in the mountainous town of Bishop California, was a bed and breakfast perfect for our berry affair.

The ceremony site was in a secluded field with large snow capped mountains as a backdrop. A quant wine box table made for a nice focal point for the intimate ceremony. The bouquets were stuffed with wildflowers, violet buddleia, red and crimson garden roses, olive, and plum branches.

Berry Bellini Signature Cocktail Recipe

This simple, elegant drink is festive and delicious with non-alcoholic champagne, sparkling wine, or cider via HGTV.

1/3 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup all-natural blueberry jam
1 bottle non-alcoholic champagne or sparkling cider, chilled
Fresh blueberries for garnish, optional

Directions:
Heat the pomegranate juice in a small saucepan until hot but not boiling. Add the jam and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and transfer to a fine mesh strainer set over a pitcher. Using a rubber spatula or spoon, press the mixture to extract the liquid, leaving any solids or seeds behind; let syrup stand until completely cooled. Refrigerate until ready to use.

To serve, pour two to three teaspoons of the syrup into champagne flutes and top with champagne or sparkling cider. Float a few blueberries in each drink for garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.

Our dessert bar, (one of my favorites) was designed with the wall serving as a cheeky backdrop. The vanilla buttercream cake was toped with blueberries, flowers, and a to die for cake topper. Fresh berries, cream, whipped tarts, macarons, sugar cookies, and mint filled the antique table.

Words from the Vendors

From Krista Fox:
Jenn and Rich were planning to go with a vintage theme for their decor. That plan evolved over the year of planning to a mod/garden themed wedding including graphic patterns and whimsical, colorful florals. It suited them perfectly. With the help of an amazing team of professionals, the wedding came to life. Jenn also infused the decor with many DIY details – sewing linens, creating signs, painting flower vessels, making the jam favors, etc. It was a perfect day in every way – even the sunshine cooperated.

Advice from the Bride

I did a lot of DIYs for our wedding – making signs, favors, gathering photos, sewing table runners – and I would advise future brides to not get hung up on the minor details. Yes, focusing on details is important in order to complete your overall vision of your big day, but not everything has to be perfect. Your guests are there, first and foremost, to see the two of you on your happiest day. No one will notice if that bow isn’t tied perfectly, or the grey font you’re using for a sign doesn’t perfectly match your menus. Keep focused on the end game and avoid getting caught up in the minutiae.

On the day of your wedding, just let it go. I would have relaxed a bit more during the reception instead of worrying about everything that was “supposed” to happen. We forgot to do the bouquet toss, and then I couldn’t find my mini “tossing” bouquet. It stressed me out when I should have just been dancing and enjoying the night – even my husband told me to loosen up! I realize now that it wasn’t that important.
