This outdoor wedding at David Girard Vineyards in Placerville was the epitome of shabby chic. Ivory, pink and apricot rose petals lined the aisle as the bride walked up to meet her husband to be. A beautiful painting that was painted by the Mother of the Bride matched the colors of the rose petals served as a backdrop as Rachel and David exchanged their wedding vows.
Rachel’s elegant champagne-colored gown was the backdrop for her country, gardeny bouquet of roses, dahlias, snapdragons and freesia. The bridesmaids carried hand-tied clusters of dahlias and roses in champagne, pink and apricot. Pastel colors, soft flowers and the vineyard setting, completed the shabby chic look for which the bride was dreaming.
The guests filed into a huge tent filled with flower-laden tables created by Natural Flair Custom Floral Design. A tall shabby chic white vase with dots of moss held clusters of sherbet-colored roses, dahlias and lisianthus on some tables. Roses and floating candles filled tall glass vases on every other table, while gardeny bouquets filled with roses, lisianthus, dahlias and sweet peas set with clusters of votive candles rounded out the floral centerpieces.
Later, the cocktail hour brought an assortment of wines from David Girard Vineyards in addition to a collection of beers and vast array of hors d’oeuvres, The gorgeous all-white cake, served later in the festivities, was created by Cakes by Karen and decorated with clusters of pink peonies. When it came time for dancing, Chad Stalzer productions lit up the dance floor, inviting guests to show their moves. We had a great time creating the flowers for Rachel and David’s amazing wedding!
