Ariella Chezar and Meg Smith are such a talented pair, and it’s so much fun to have them back today with another gorgeous and inspiring shoot, this one at two beautiful Napa Valley wineries. Don’t all of these rustic details make you want to take a trip to the Italian countryside?

The bridesmaid bouquets and centerpieces include dahlias, chocolate cosmos, angelica gigas, and of course, sunflowers.

 

Young purple artichokes are incorporated into both the menu and the decor. The menus, place cards, and favor tags were customized with rubber stamps. 

Splits of champagne are wrapped in little burlap sacks from Shibata, and finished with eggplant purple ribbon and a scallop-edged tag. The bubbly favors are displayed on a wine barrel.

      LOVE the purple artichoke motif…so unique yet completely timeless. And the sunflower yellow that runs throughout the decor adds such a warm golden light. Could Ariella BE any more talented?!!
