Napa’s vineyard-laden hills provided the scenery for three beautiful designs featuring the light and airy hues of spring at the Carneros Resort and Spa. “We wanted to compose a captivating style, capturing the very essence of spring in the picturesque wine country,” says Solmaz Burke of San Francisco’s Burkevents. Thoughtful and perfectly placed details, from delicate glassware to stunning linens, showcase each color palette in a fresh and contemporary style.


This reception table features a verdant green linen to match the beautiful natural surroundings. Chargers, goblets and vases in punchy yet feminine shades of blush and lavender allow the vibrant blooms to shine—a modern spring bride’s dream. The bride wears the ethereal “Morning Glory” gown from Anne Barge’s Blue Willow collection.

This shoot was incredible! My vibe was NAPA VALLEY high fashion—playing off the INCREDIBLE gown, the gorgeous location and the LUXE DÉCOR, this shoot was very inspiring.

Woven wood placemats topped with dishware featuring detailed illustrations give a vintage vibe to this high tea tablescape. Goblets in soft colors and fresh white blooms create a decorative motif that feels plucked from your English grandmother’s country home, highlighted by darling bee teacups. A patterned BBJ La Tavola linen offers the perfect complement to living greenery provided by Flowers by Edgar. The bride’s whimsical springtime look, courtesy of Hair and Makeup by Yuliya, proved stunning at the golden hour.

This is a place where the VIVID hues of NATURE and the refined flavors of WINE harmoniously entwine, creating a mesmerizing SYMPHONY of beauty.

A meadow of plum, wine and indigo hues defines this bright aesthetic, bursting with flowery details. Translucent glassware, smaller vessels and mauve satin napkins present a delicate contrast to grand stone vases, creating a sensuous spring fever dream. Layers of metallic-rimmed plates complement golden flatware and provide the perfect spot for a seasonal menu card designed by Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy. The bride has soft, barely there waves in her hair, statement earrings and a petal-kissed look.
