How To Make A Sangria Bar

Bright and airy, those were the two words on Katie’s mind when designing these garden ideas. As an event designer for RW Events she wanted to challenge the typical dark and gloomy wine cellar ideas of wine. Fast forward to this gorgeous day, centered completely around the tasty looking white wine sangria served. Read on to hear some helpful tips on how to make a sangria bar and of course, see more fabulous shots captured by Amalie Orrange Photography in the full gallery here.

DIY Place-mat Idea

I love using wood in any way possible, and was trying to think of how to incorporate it in the shoot. I didn’t want to just paint the wood because then you lose the grain pattern (and that’s the best part about wood!) I decided to wash the pieces in a light blue hue.

1. Apply a small amount of paint brushed onto the wood.
2. While the paint is still wet, wipe it off with a damp rag. (Repeat until you acquire the desired shade.)
3. Once dry, add the calligraphy with a gold paint pen.

Tuscany Wedding Ideas

Josh and I wanted our wedding to be where all of friends and family from around the world could come to relax, eat delicious food, and drink our favorite Italian wines. We discovered La Bandita; the perfect venue situated on a secluded Tuscan hilltop looking over the picturesque landscape of the Val d’Orcia. La Bandita, a restored farmhouse converted into a boutique hotel is a magical place, where everything turned out just as we had hoped.

Regrets From The Bride

I wish we had a videographer at the wedding to capture some of the intimate moments. Lauren did an absolutely amazing job with the pictures. I still smile every time I look at them. However, it’s so rare to see my husband get emotional, so it would have been nice to document it with a video.
