Bold Mediterranean Inspired Wedding in Wine Country :: Kristin & Henry

Photography by Christina McNeill

We have such a gorgeous wedding to share with you today! It’s like the Greek islands meets California wine country – relaxed and elegant with bold, vibrant colors, lush florals and an epic dance party under the stars!

(And PS, can we just take a moment to consider how incredible the bride’s bold bouquet is?)

The couple were also inspired by the Mediterranean, so the design concept was based around the vibrant blues of the sea, brilliant white stucco, terra cotta vessels, and lush pink and red bougainvillea. This vibe was also carried through with some seriously stunning Andalusian-esque tile escort cards, and beautifully embroidered linens.

Though the bride and groom are from New York, they had always dreamed of a destination wedding in wine country, where the bride’s family lives. It’s pretty easy to see why when you look at these images, isn’t it? Talk about relaxed, effortless California elegance! And those bold, lush arrangements by Cherries Flowers really top it all off… how creative – and just perfect for the location and time of year – to mix bougainvillea with roses!

What was your first dance song? Mother and Son? Father and Daughter?

Could this geometric cake in different shades of blue be more fab? So simple and chic!
