An Intimate Wedding in the Vineyards

When your best friends get married, and you're an event planner, the unfortunate truth is you don't get a choice, I am planning your wedding and that is that. You can kick and scream if you must, but you will kick and scream under the direction of my planning! JUST KIDDING! 

But really, when my best friends told me they were getting married and only wanted a small intimate affair, I couldn't be more excited to help, and with there blessing the wheels were turning in my head and the planning was in motion. 

Alyssa and Jamal started off the day with a courtship wedding, with only there closest family members present on a clear early morning in December. It was an incredible moment to see your two best friends transpire there love to wedded bliss after a six year journey together. 

There I Do's were followed by a luncheon for 22 at Callaway Vineyard and Winery.

Fresh Roses & Ranunculus were picked up from the flower market that morning and brought a classic, simple and effortless touch to there intimate luncheon full of love, and laughter with there closest family members. 

The private luncheon was followed by wine tasting in the vineyards before another private dinner at South Coast Winery Resort and Spa. 

At seven in the evening, 20 of Alyssa and Jamal's closest friends shared an evening of food, wine, laughter, stories, and most of all love. 

We encased the 25 foot table with a variety of fresh florals, greens, and candlelight. 

I couldn't have been happier to play a small role in helping these two fill there special day with the people they loved the most. Sometimes, when all you wish is to focus on your love, an intimate wedding in the vineyards is just the ticket.
