Monique and Ryan fell in love with Jacuzzi Family Vineyards right away after seeing that they could revel in the beauty of the grapevines during the ceremony and cocktail reception, dine in the gorgeous piazza and celebrate with guests in the luxurious barrel room. Does it get any dreamier than that? All of the couple's guests came in from out of state for the celebration, and the bride and groom ensured that they would all experience the best that California wine country has to offer. Under the planning eye of Quintana Events, the duo chose a classic color palette for the affair, opting for hues of white, cream and pops of peach, while highlighting the natural beauty of the olive vineyard.
The bride looked dazzling in a breathtaking Maya Palace gown with an incredible drop back and carried a gorgeous bouquet of florals and greenery crafted by Aimee Lomeli Designs. Her bridesmaids stunned in beautiful blush dresses, while the groom and his groomsmen opted for gray ensembles from The Black Tux. A beautiful outdoor ceremony site served as the perfect spot for Monique and Ryan to say their "I do's," as the venue's rustic architecture paired with simple decor choices created a romantic space focused on the bride and groom.
Guests were invited to an intimate outdoor dinner where the beauty of the venue took center stage. Monique and Ryan were head over heels for this beautiful spot and wanted their guests to experience the beautiful architecture and vineyard for themselves. The couple even had a friend hand-write all of the menus, which showcased a beautiful drawing of the vineyard. Olive leaves were incorporated into the centerpieces, a beautiful touch that made the design truly one-of-a-kind. The main focus in the barrel room was six-foot-wide custom chandelier adorned in florals and greenery that gave the space the perfect romantic ambience.
From the bride:
"Our favorite special touch was our wedding cake. I had my heart set on a specific flower and look for our cake and I was unable to find the flowers. After much searching, my mom offered to hand-make the flowers out of gum paste. My mom had never made something this intricate but she started practicing and right away they turned out amazing. She handmade over 20 flowers and details. She painted them and gently packed them away. I carried the Tupperware of the gum paste flowers on our flight from Arizona to Northern California. They thankfully made it there perfectly and it turned out exactly how we wanted. It was so special to us."
