I love Temecula and Wineries and what could be better then a Wilson Creek Winery Wedding in the Fall? Sara and Adam were married at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula, CA. Sara was one of those brides that had dreamed of her wedding day as a child and had a ton of photos and knew exactly what she wanted for her day. They added a lot of personal touch to make their wedding really reflect their personalities. Wilson Creek was such a gorgeous venue for a wedding. The night time ceremony was really romantic feeling and the reception that followed in their new ballroom was warm and inviting.

This emerald green and gold Mission Inn wedding has been by far was one of my favorite weddings to design! Kristina and Andrei were so delightful to work with along with Kristina’s mother Kim! When they decided on an emerald green (2013’s pantone color of the year) and gold color scheme and let me run with it, I was thrilled! We decided on a layout that was a bit unusual with the tables creating a large X with the surrounding tables in the opening of each side using the linens from Linen Savvy and the stunning Chameleon Chairs from Classic Party Rentals. One of my favorite elements was an elaborate cake table design that I created with a gorgeous gold brushed cake as the center piece from Simply Cakes. The Mission Inn Hotel went above and beyond in their service for this wedding. It was incredible to see the synchronized service of the waiters complete with white gloves. The ladies from Classic Touch Events  are always a pleasure to work with made the day run perfectly! Thank you to TK Jones Photography for the beautiful images! We just love the way this adorable couple met! Here is the story in the words of our groom:

We met in sixth grade.  I sat in front of her in class and knew immediately that there was something special about her.  I actually came home after the first day of school and told my mom, “I’m in love!” 

At a seventh grade Halloween party I took the opportunity to tell her that I had a crush on her.  I was dressed up as Zorro and she as Aphrodite.  I brought a rose with me and told her that I thought she was pretty and smart, and that I liked her.  She blushed and kindly accepted my rose as a token of affection. We remained good friends (we were just kids, after all!) but it certainly was the beginning of the seed of love growing between us. 

Kristina and I ended up going to different high schools but kept in touch over the years.  I even asked her to my prom Junior year in high school.  It wasn’t until college that she and I began dating.  She had moved from Boston to San Francisco and although we spent the first year of our relationship long distance, I ended up moving to San Francisco as well.
