Inspired by fall foliage and coastal sunsets, we selected florals in dusty pink, peach, and warm yellow tones. Golden mustard Garden Rose, yellow Illex, and dusty pink Hydrangea cascaded across the decedent tablescape. Berries and fresh seasonal fruit were added to elevate the senses and enhance the farm-to-table element of the Carmel Valley wine tasting experience.

Inspired by the vineyard’s elegant and peaceful setting. The Octagon arch and comfortable benches bring a welcoming, yet high-end vibe for all of the guests to enjoy. Carmel Valley is famous for its amazing rolling hills and vineyards so why not use both! The winery tasting room offered the perfect location for a relaxing and luxurious setting for getting ready, sipping wine, dinner and happy hour. The vineyard was the perfect location for the ceremony. With the vineyard in full fall foliage mode, the reds and yellows complimented the florals to a 'T".
