Amber and Greg

Wednesday, July 11, 2012










































Sometimes "pretty" just seems so insufficient, doesn't it? 

Amber and Greg nixed a destination beach celebration in favor of a local celebration at the gorgeous Concannon Vineyard, complete with a lemony yellow Victorian home, a vineyard and a barrel room. The couple wanted their day to feel romantic and personal, so they worked with event planner Maggie Wise to craft a celebration that was equal parts rustic and traditional. 

Amber wore a lace Enzoani gown and crystal belt, paired with a gorgeous embroidered veil by Malis-Henderson, nude platform peep toes from Enzo Angiolini and crystal drop earrings, while her bridesmaids wore navy Jim Hjelm gowns. Bouquets by The Petal Pusher, full of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, lisianthus and sage green foliage, perfectly complimented the gainsboro gray suits worn by the gentlemen. After a cloudy morning, the skies parted just in time for the newlywed's vows, and following the outdoor ceremony, guests dined al fresco on California cuisine from Alex's Catering. The barrel room was the perfect setting for sweets, with a four tier buttercream confection from Cake Delight as the centerpiece, and dancing, with Rob from Amos Productions providing the music.

And as always, few credits are quite as important is the photographer, in this case the incredible Tanja Lippert, whose work lets us continue to enjoy these beautiful moments long after the cake is eaten and the chairs cleared away. An enormous thanks to Tanja, for sharing her stunning photos with us!
