Natale + Matt Tied the Knot in Kenwood, CA at Chateau St. Jean.Natale's whimsical personality was certainly shown throughout this entire wedding. She aimed for colors that complimented their venue. She decided on deep purple, bright green, hints of magenta, and a splash of bright red- which was where her shoes came into play. Natale always wanted a simple cake with an unexpected twist. The purple sugar flower was the perfect accessory to the simplistic cake. The bridal bouquet was made up of prince garden roses, purple calla lilies, hydrangea, freesia, scabiosa, poppy pods and hypericum berries. It was handle wrapped with purple ribbon. The bridesmaids bouquets were made with super green rose, purple calla lilies, green hydrangea, scabiosa, brodaiea, oregano and hypericum berries.
Natale's rings were estate pieces. The engagement ring was Edwardian circa 1915-1920, made up of platinum and diamonds. The wedding band was an Art Deco eternity band from the 1940's. The bracelets Natale wore were her "something borrowed" and her "something new." Six of them belonged to her mother and one of them was a gift from her father right before she was walked down the isle. They were all a mix between pearls, gold, and diamonds. Natale and her mother spent a lot of time selecting each bracelet so that they'd fit together perfectly. Some of the bracelets were worn by her mother when she was Natale's age. Natale's gown was designed by Monique Lhullier and her bright red shoes were by Brian Atwood. The dress was purchased full length. Natale had all but one petty-coat removed and about 12 inches cut off the bottom to make it tea-length. Natale also had pearl buttons sewn all the way down the back of the dress to add extra detail.â€¨â€¨Natale and Matt exchanged vows in "The Garden" of Chateau St Jean. Their backdrop included vines that represented every type of grape grown on the vineyard.
