Calistoga Ranch Wedding, Wine Cave Reception

Today the final installment of Blooms Calistoga Ranch wedding! The wedding reception was held in the wine cave. We hung over 25 mason jars filled with candles from the trellis as you entered. Then coming down the hallway of the cave we covered each alcove table with moss and filled in with lanterns, rosemary topiary, flower heads and candles. Candles make weddings so romantic! As each wedding guest came into the hallway, they selected their place card that was attached to a spoon or fork, carrying on the "Love Feast" theme that Jennifer and maciej choose for their wedding. Once in the cave guest were greeted with a feast for the eye. Garlands strung from the wine caves, chandeliers and sconces. Each wedding guest had a sprig of lavender and rosemary at their place setting as well as a wonderful oil and vinegar wedding favor. At Jennifer and Maciej's place setting we placed their initials created from moss. We created a table runner of moss and them filled the table with candles, floral centerpieces, topiary and moss balls. Jennifer and Maciej love cheese, they choose to have their wedding cake created to look like cheese rounds, fabulous!

Calistoga Ranch Wedding, Getting Ready

Todays post isn't much of a flower post, but the images by Meredith Davenport of the Christian Oth Studio in New York, were so beautiful I just had to share. Jennifer and Maciej Choose Calistoga Ranch in Calistoga California as their perfect wedding site. When you arrive at Calistoga Ranch, your car is parked and you spend your visit either walking or being chauffeured around in golf carts. It makes for a very peaceful stay. Jennifer started the wedding journey with darling save the dates, done as dish towels with their theme of "One big love feast". The wedding invitations went out with real spoons attached, so cute! We carried the spoon and love feast theme throughout the wine cave wedding reception, which you will see next week. Jennifer and Maciej's invitation is currently being featured in Real Simples Current wedding magazine. As Jennifer and Maciej got ready they were so sweet sending gifts back and forth to each other via gold cart. Jennifer received jewelry, and Maciej received a Mac ipad!

Calistoga Ranch Wedding Ceremony

Details, details, details. This wedding was just full of special touches everywhere. At the start of the bridge leading to the wedding ceremony we attached moss hearts and laced the bridge with roses. Then we created a birch structure and wove it with hundredres of white roses. The aisle was strew with rose petals. After the ceremony our couple headed out for more wedding photos on a golf cart decorated with another moss heart. The brides bouquet was made up of David Austin roses, garden roses, spray roses etc...all wrapped in a beautiful Midori silk ribbon.
