We were left with our mouths open when we saw today’s stunning vineyard wedding at Sogno Del Fiore for the first time! The photography by Onelove Photography is simply amazing, and all the details of Roy and Amanda’s special day are gorgeous! Every wedding is different, and every couple as an opportunity to show WHO THEY ARE by how they put on their wedding. How did you want your wedding to show what was important to you?
Here is a little something from the Amanda: “We just wanted a big celebration with all of our friends and family. Having good food, drink and music was imperative, somewhere unique, that would lend the backdrop to host a fun, fabulous, memorable party was our vision. Making it even more special, I wore my Grandmother & Great-Grandmother’s crystal jewelry, used lace from my Mother’s wedding dress wrapped around my bouquet and had a traditional sixpence brought from across the pond by my Mother-In-Law placed in my shoe.
Decorations and Design
“Our venue was the best decoration of them all: a private residence surrounded by vineyards and mountains in the Santa Ynez Valley. And, we were their first wedding! I loved our long, wood tables that were simply accented with burlap table runners I had made from Etsy, elegant flower arrangements, fruit and candles. Not only did we have mini cupcakes for dessert, we had an England inspired candy bar (it was an homage to my English husband). The candy bar was a hit! We are big snowboarders so instead of a guest book, we had a snowboard made with our logo and asked guests sign the board that we’ll hang on our wall. Our theme was rustic romantic and every element of the wedding encompassed just that. It’s so hard to pick out just a few details – I’m biased!”
What else did you learn while planning your wedding?
“Soak up the proposal and enjoy the engagement. Planning a wedding is all what you make of it. Take the planning one day at a time and don’t forget to spend time NOT talking about the wedding. You wedding day is a moment in your life, an unforgettable amazing moment, so lavish in the glory of the day but also remember that it has to end and unfortunately reality will kick in, so be present and stay in the moment!”
