About the Venue
If you are looking for a wine country wedding venue that offers endless options, then take a closer look at the Harvest Inn. Location is the key. You can't ask for a more centralized location. The inn reminds us of an English country estate, with its Tudor styling, small hidden gardens, and quiet spaces. Located in the middle of the valley, you can't ask for a more centralized gathering place for your guests. The rooms are wonderful, suite style accommodations with fireplaces, gorgeous views, and many wonderful amenities. The inn sits on the edge of a massive vineyard, this allows you have all of your festivities surrounded by acres of aromatic grape vines without being in the center of a busy winery. The Harvest Inn is a typical bed and breakfast style resort, which is both charming and quaint.
Real Wedding Inspiration
The WOW factor associated with this incredible celebration is endless. Dee Merz is listed by The Knot as one of the top ten planners in San Francisco and as you can see, she has earned her reputation. The Cabernet-inspired color palette used here evokes such a positive and carefree feeling. Crimson is shown in its truest form here, where it fills the space with joy and laughter. The ceremony styling is so much fun. The red aisle runner is brilliant and done so tastefully. Red is a challenging color and this runner is perfect - gorgeous and not overly flashy. I love the use of the chiavari chairs - they bring such elegance to this outdoor celebration. The styling on the chairs is also a fabulous touch. The single bow tied on the chair at the end of the aisle works as an anchor to the design; love the simplicity.
The floral design is jaw-dropping. If you love RED you are going to drool over this design. The primary use of the red rose to depict love is a wonderful choice and makes such a great color statement. I love how they have tied the English ivy into the design as well. The Harvest Inn is filled with small English-style gardens, filled with ivy and other botanicals. Although these gorgeous manicured designs are decadent, they are also a custom fit for the venue - Love it!
