Siobhan and Luca

Wednesday, October 12, 2011










































Just when I thought I'd never get to an apple orchard, I find this gem of a wedding–thank Heavens for couples with a love of the great outdoors, not to mention seriously gorgeous taste!

Siobhan and Luca were married at Vine Hill House in Sonoma County where they made use of both the property's gorgeous outdoor spaces and that magnificent barn (tell me you're not still swooning over those first look photos). They worked closely with Lisa Blake of Bellissima Vita, and their photographers, Lisa and James of Ella Jae, to bring French-Italian style to this apple orchard in wine country.

Siobhan chose a stunning embroidered lace gown by Monique Lhuillier and a darling pair of blue J.Crew peep toes festooned with bows. Luca wore a classic navy suit and a monogrammed pink dress shirt paired with matching cufflinks and a sky blue tie. San Francisco florist Cherries Flowers created the lush bouquets and arrangements of English garden roses and sweet peas; it was a sweet reminder of all the Cherries bouquets Luca had sent his bride to be during their courtship.

After an outdoor ceremony officiated by close friends of the bride and groom, guests dined en plein air; a feast catered by Elaine Bell was followed by pies from Butter Love Bakeshop and the couple's favorite ice cream from Straus Family Creamery. Friends and family left their well wishes in wine bottles labeled with various anniversary years and tucked into an antique French riddling rack; Siobhan and Luca plan to crack each one open and celebrate the love and wisdom of their nearest and dearest with every anniversary.

  2. I agree with Lucinda! That gown is amazing. I much prefer the fitted ones to the puffier versions. The shape is just lovely and perfect. And outdoor ceremonies are my favorite :)
