Real California Wedding - Kristina & Paul
I'm so excited to share Kristina & Paul's beautiful Napa Valley Wedding with you today...their "Dream Team" of AMAZING artists consisted of some of my favorite people in the industry...capturing their wedding story is my new BFF, Suzy Clement...I ADORE Suzy...her work is STUNNING!  Ariella Chezar, designed all the beautiful florals....Ariella is my "floral idol"....totally in love with all of her work and she is the sweetest lady...and my friend, Sam Godfrey of Perfect Endings, baked the beautiful cake.....and the lady behind all of the planning, Kristi Amoroso.....let's check out all the magic made by this "Dream Team".....Enjoy!! 

Kristina shared that for the "Design Theme" of the wedding, she drew upon her own background in history and art history.  Kristina is a historian specializing in 18th-century English history and she wanted to use her aesthetic skills to tie together two meaningful themes...1) that Paul and Kristina fell in love at Oxford and 2), Kristina's love for 18th-century English art and design.


Kristina's beautiful dress was from Reem Acra.  The dress is ivory hand-embroidered silk-tulle embellished with Swarovski crystals.  Kristina's veil, which she wore at the ceremony only, was chapel length made of plain ivory tulle, so it would not clash with the embellishment of the dress.




Ariella designed the most beautiful soft peach, buttery yellow, and creamy flowers...for the bridesmaids, Ariella designed buttery yellow and light blue flowers for their bouquets.









The ceremony was held at Grace Episcopal Church in St. Helena!



Ariella designed the reception table floral in Neo-Classical urns....the designs were dripping with peaches, raspberries, strawberries and cherries.  This helped create a natural yet, formal feel in the dinner reception area.







And check out all the "yummy" food by Paula le Duc!






The gorgeous cake was created by Sam Godfrey of Perfect Endings.  The cake had four tiers and was square with light blue fondant and slightly darker blue accents made to imitate damask fabric!





Suzy, thanks SO much for stopping by the cafe today and sharing Kristina & Paul's beautiful wedding story with us....we look forward to your next visit.....guys head over to Suzy's beautiful site to see more of her gorgeous work.....and to Kristina & Paul, we wish you a lifetime filled with happiness and love!!
