This lovely lavender infused wedding at Green Villa Barn and Garden has touches of lavender throughout – a favourite here on L&L! With fall season upon us, I wanted to soak in the summery feel of this outdoor wedding before the weather changes. From where I am sitting today, it looks like it already has. I love the white lights used as a canopy within the building - a historic 1928 barn once used as a dance hall during Prohibition.   There are tons of DIY touches throughout that make this wedding simply delightful!

This has got to be one of my favorite wedding menus of all time. As the chalkboard sign indicates below: Pulled Pork, fresh baked rolls, creamy coleslaw, green salad, grandmas baked beans, and fruit tray.  In fact, when I was originally considering a destination wedding in San Fransisco, the wedding reception was going to be catered by a long-standing southern barbeque food restaurant that had a very similar menu. Makes my mouth water just looking at the sign!

I was drawn to this vineyard mountain wedding because of the cute floral arrangements on the reception and cake tables.  They are all mismatched and for some of the tables they used vintage cake stands for height to hold the small arrangements.  I love the look and I also love the price tag that would come along with it.  Only having to use one rose to fill up a little vase is my kind of arrangement!  The reception was held at the “The Grand Pavilion” at La Caille. Now that fall is fast approaching, a venue location like this seems perfect for those that want an outdoor wedding reception.  Go ahead and dance the night away on the big dance floor and still feel outside with all the ivy and flowers hanging from the ceiling above; take comfort in knowing that you don’t need a rain backup plan.

Vineyard Mountain Wedding at La Caille ~ Bride’s Comments

How was your wedding different than you imagined it would be?

My husband and I think that the wedding ceremony exceeded our expectations.  Having an officiant that has known my for most of my life made the ceremony much more personal.  We also chose to read write our on personal statements before we repeated traditional vows. I think that the personal vows was a very special and personal moment. We also chose my uncle to read which made the ceremony all the more special.

Old, new, borrowed, blue – Did you follow that tradition and if so, what did you use?

I would say that my “Something New” was my amazing wedding dress, as well as a hanker chief that my mom’s best friend gave to me.  My “Something Old, Something Borrowed and Something Blue” was an antique ring of my grandmother’s, that I wore on my right ring finger.  It meant a lot to my grandmother that I chose to wear her piece jewelry.

Did you do a first look before the ceremony?

We did do a first look before the ceremony.  My husband always wanted to do a first look, so that we could enjoy more time at the party, but I was unsure.  However, during our initial meeting with our photographer, Pepper, she really influenced my decision and I couldn’t be happier with the decision.  It was so special to have that intimate moment together before I walked down the aisle in front of all of our guests.  The First Look pictures was one of my favorite parts of the day.  It got a lot of the nerves out of the way, and we were able to participate in the fun celebration after!

Why did you pick that location for your ceremony?

Growing up in Utah, I frequented La Caille with my family and always dreamed about getting married there.  The venue is just breathtaking with the beautiful flowers and mountains as a backdrop.

Tell us about one unique wedding idea you did?

I wanted to make the wedding programs fans, and they turned out wonderfully. We also had a “wedding Bell” on everyone’s chair with a poem that read “Ring this wedding bell loud when the bride and groom first kiss, and share their joyful wedding bliss!” It was wonderful to hear all of the wedding bells ringing when we shared in our first kiss.

Who and why did you pick that escort?

Although it is customary for the father of the bride to walk down the aisle, I really wanted both of my parents to share that special moment with me. They have both been such an important part of my life and have influenced who I am today, so I wanted to walk down with both of them.

Who was your dress designer and where did you buy your dress from?

Mark Zunino and I bought it at Kleinfelds in New York City.  This was a fun experience because all my siblings and I were all with my mom in NYC celebrating her 60th birthday.  My mom has always loved the show “Say Yes to the Dress” and we were all thrilled when we got a last minute appointment at the famous Kleinfeld Bridal.  I only tried on 4 dresses and knew my favorite dress right away.

What were three things you are glad you did?

First Look, Personal Statements before traditional vows, live band, having a close acquaintance marry us as he made the ceremony so much more personal.

Describe your wedding cake

Our wedding cake was a very simple three-tiered almond cake with butter-cream frosting, accompanied by some flowers from EBT.  We also had a fun groom’s cake which was a University of Southern California football helmet, where the groom went to school.

Describe your wedding flowers

Simple romantic arrangements in pale pinks and white with hints of mint including David Austin Roses, hydrangeas and sweet pea.  Table arrangements were not identical, some of the tables were decorated with vintage cake plates holding small arrangements.

What did you give your guests for wedding Favors?

What were some personal details you incorporated?

We definitely tried to incorporate some Mexican flare into the wedding as my husband’s father is from Mexico. We threw a Mexican themed rehearsal dinner “Fiesta” in which we decorated the restaurant with pictures of the bride and groom growing up, piñatas and other Mexican flare.  We continued to incorporate some Mexican flare at the wedding with the Mariachi Band, Mexican Cokes, Mexican cookies and we had the band play some Spanish music.
