Real Wedding Inspiration: Amy & Garrett's Fine Wine Love Affair

Another fantastic wedding at Porter Valley-Amy & Garrett enjoyed a wine themed wedding & reception with their family & friends. They chose a rich maroon & ivory color scheme to go with their theme & added several extra touches that made their wedding special.

Scrolls with a thoughtful message to guests were displayed in a personalized wood box at the reception table

The seating cards were fittingly propped on top of wine bottle corks

A pretty bird cage where guests could leave cards for the bride & groom was also placed next to the guest book

The ceremony was elaborately decorated with shepherds hooks holding up hanging rose balls of alternating fall colors
The arbor looked very nice with extra draping
The center spray floral arrangement was very autumnal & brought in all their colors perfectly
The couple chose cute sand ceremony vases shaped like hearts for the symbolic tradition
Chocolates that said "Love" on them were at the bar for the guests who had a sweet tooth
And for the cigar connoisseur, a cigar bar was set up outside for guests to enjoy on the terrace
Of course a custom menu of the hosted bar options was in order for this wine themed wedding
The fresh fruit punch & champagne punch display was decorated to theme by our staff.

Tables had menus in a pocket fold maroon napkin, as well as the "LOVE" glass coasters for the party favors placed at each seating. One of our preferred florist, David Blair, did an excellent job bringing Fall colors and lots of texture to the tables with these lovely centerpieces.

Their tables were named after different wines to go with the theme of the night and the signs were placed on tiny easels on top of mirrors with little glass crystals tossed around. To top off the look they had rose petals sprinkled about the table.

And here's the room, all finished with guests seated outside for the ceremony...

The couple opted for adding in maroon sashes to complete the look of the room as well as having us light the posts and drape them in sheer fabric.

Our Banquet Captain Chris Garcia, pulls out all the stops when it comes to decorating our buffet tables. Lovely job Chris!

Love this Fall colored sweetheart table that was spilling over with an abundance of flowers. Also, adore the peacock fold our staff made with the couple's napkins, which really complimented the table's decor
Amy & Garrett said "I Do", and so did their cake! These wood cut outs spelling out their promise was very sweet. The pretty cake made by our preferred vendor, Delicious Bakery, was topped with their initials and decorated with vibrant flowers. I do hope you enjoyed this recap and we do wish Amy & Garrett a very happy married life!
Congratulations Amy & Garrett!
