When autumn begins, and the leaves start falling, I always get a little excited about the florals I’ll see at the weddings I have coming up. I LOVE autumn! So, Allison and Ricky’s autumn wedding at Napa Valley’s Charles Krug Winery, with designs by Valley Flora, and overall wedding styling by La Grande Fete, promised to be perfection. And it didn’t disappoint. Ahhhhhh. Then add to this gorgeous wedding two very darling people, with a this sweet and light-hearted demeanor about them, and many friends with long and memorable shared histories, and suddenly you have a party. A beautiful party. And once Wonderbread 5 took over the night, both Allison and Ricky eventually threw themselves off the stage, rocker-style, into the arms of those same friends, and crowd-surfed “into the sunset”. I am SO glad I was still there for that! :-) Happy wedding day, A & R!!
My favorites things…
Autumn-styled florals by Valley Flora – perfection.
Allison’s Badgley Mishka wedges – so gorgeous, and so smart for a lawn ceremony.
A wonderful, personalized ceremony officiated by their friend Pete, who remembers them before they became a ‘them’.
Golden accents on the tables, with elegant black, white & charcoal grays for the wedding party – lovely.
Crowd surfing – rocker-style!
