A Perfect Location
Taste and see. Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley stands the Harvest Inn. A quaint place to not only stay and indulge in the tastes and sights of Napa, but also to get married. A perfect place to tie the knot, surrounded by friends and family, as well as the stunning view of vineyards, and the tasty treats this region of Northern California has to offer. And what better way to celebrate the start of a legacy of love than with a true Californian, delightful and delectable soiree designed by Kristina of Events by Kristina Elyse.
A stunning palette of oranges, peach, marigold, and ivory mixed with greenery gave way to the most beautiful vibes for this al fresco affair. From tying the knot in front of Harvest Inn’s vineyards, to dining in style under the stars, no stone was left unturned in this elegant, yet bohemian day.
The bride and groom exchanged vows on custom handmade paper scrolls calligraphed by Ashley Baumgartner before stealing a few kisses and sneaking off for a romantic moment. Adorned in the most delicate bell sleeves, the bride Lauryn wore the “Adelaide" by Willowby from Miosa Bride. A striking mix of soulful and romantic. Her glam bridal hair and makeup by Sophia Nawabi and Badgley Mischka heels completed her feminine look. Jonathan, her groom, wore a sleek and classic Banana Republic suit. As they cuddled and stole kisses in the vineyard, Lauryn’s bountiful greenery inspired bouquet by J Blooms stole the show, tied with marigold silk ribbon from Honey Silks Co flowing in the breeze.
Picture Perfect Details
Classic and romantic details that included an Old-World femininity meets modern typography invitation suite printed on handmade paper set the tone for this wedding. From accents of citrus and florals to stunning boutonnieres, there was no shortage of gorgeous details.
Guests enjoyed custom cocktails from Harvest Inn complete with marigold and citrus hues and flavors before finding their way to their seats. A rustic meets classic elegance table arrangement included gold antique-inspired linens from La Tavola, old-world details and a stunning floral centerpiece that highlighted subdued femininity. Golden goblets and fresh fruit created a warm and inviting place for guests. A soft linen menu outlined the four courses for the evening, and a handmade paper place card with a letterpress vine guided guests to their seats. The perfect way to dine outside with a stunning meal from Harvest Inn.
To end the evening on a sweet note, Palette Cakes displayed and served a delectable three-tier masterpiece dripping in handmade sugar flowers and berries. The dessert offerings were the highlight of the evening, displayed on their own table surrounded by nature’s bounty and Old-World books and charm. The perfect display of taste and see.
