Real Wedding: Katie and David

Happy Tuesday, friends! I apologize for leaving you on the edge with my sneak peek of this adorable wedding but life has been busy! But have no fear, I have the rest of the GORGEOUS photos here with some words from the beautiful bride.

The April 30th ceremony took place at the St. Helena Catholic church, with a reception directly following at the Charles Krug Winery. I’ve always been a sucker for classical vineyard weddings and this one is definitely one of the prettiest I’ve seen. The pale pink peonies with the white, ivory bouquets were simple, yet glamorous and the centerpieces, place cards and props matched the natural, rustic chic vibe of the venue. One of my FAVORITE parts of this wedding doesn’t have anything to do with the decor. This couple is SO adorable. They are whimsical, fun and visibly madly in love. Couples like this are why I love weddings. They understand it’s a serious event, but you need to be YOU and have the whole thing represent that. Okay enough of my blabbing, lets look at some pretty pictures courtesy of the talented Lori Paladino photography.

The wedding planning process was certainly daunting at first. We really wanted it to be a classic, timeless affair and we kept that in mind as we were searching for all of our vendors starting with our wonderful wedding planner, Amy Thumhart! She had worked on my brother’s wedding so we decided to build on that relationship and invite her to make the magic happen for our wedding. From then on, we gathered a team of vendors who were absolutely amazing every step of the way. I could not thank them enough after the wedding day.

Friends, this reception venue is going to blow your socks off. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I love the “barn like” interior and the lush outdoor seating. If I could get married again, I would SO pick this place.

 The gorgeous bouquets and rose petals were used to decorate the cake table. I’m in serious LUST of the flowers.

After photos, Katie changed into an adorable shorter reception dress and blue shoes. She also added in a white, feathered hair piece.

Probably the most personal to us, aside from having all of our amazing family and friends there to celebrate with us, was the band and dancing portion of the reception. One of our easiest decisions to make was on the band. It had to be none other than the band we met dancing to, and had continued to dance to for pretty much every Tuesday for years, Stompy Jones! Not only are they amazing musicians and entertainers but they are all around wonderful individuals and we’re so glad to call them friends now. Any other band or music at our wedding just would have felt wrong. It was perfect to have the same music and dancing that we fell in love to at our wedding reception.
