A lush Napa vineyard and collection of beautiful bouquets is a perfect way to welcome spring, don’t you think? Noa & Rob’s Tuscan-inspired wedding comes from photographer Leah McCormick – and you are just going to love these flowers!

From bouquets to ceremony decor to centerpieces, dahlias in a multitude of colors provided a bright pop of color to the event.

Guests enjoyed an alfresco family-style dinner of filet of beef and Tuscan-style chicken. Says the bride: “We opted for family style because of space constraints, and because we had the long farm tables. It worked out great!”

Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  It was a unique, rustic setting that we have always loved and wanted to share with our guests.

What inspired you when you were planning your wedding?  We wanted a fun, laid-back but beautiful wedding. The theme was “disheveled Tuscany” and everyone of our vendors was exceptional – Natalie Bowen, our caterer, and our wedding planner – in creating a beautiful atmosphere that all guests could enjoy.

What was your favorite moment or part of the day?  The whole day!

Did you include any traditions in your wedding?  Our ceremony incorporated new and old family traditions. I wore the same earrings my great aunt wore when she got married (as she eloped in a red dress and on a white horse). Throughout the ceremony we involved our family – including incorporating a ring blessing and Hawaiian prayer that my mom read. My dad walked me down the “aisle” (a row of vines) and my stepfather married us.

What advice do you have for other brides?  Enjoy every moment, because it goes by fast. Also, get a month-of or day-of coordinator – it’s worth every penny, especially when you are getting married in a venue that involves multiple vendors and providing transportation for the guests. And because our wedding was outside, we made sure to have lots of heaters so our guests would never get cold.

    I LOVED Noa and Rob and loved their vision. They totally went with the flow and handed over a lot of trust to me which I think worked in their favor. Congrats to them!

    Beautiful post about a beautiful couple.

    I was hoping you could tell me where they ordered their wedding invites from? I’m throwing my older sister a garden party-themed bridal shower and I would LOVE to use that template. I’m obsessed with it!

    Thank you!
