Last Wedding of the Season!

Indian Summer arrived just in time for Julie and Anders wedding on October 14th. 

Feel Good Foods once again prepared an amazingly delicious menu with a Fall theme. The Butternut Squash Raviolis were as gorgeous as they were delicious. The last of the red ripe tomatoes were chopped finely and placed on bite sized crostini for appetizer hour. 

For the little ones, Julie's mom prepared a lawn area to get cozy in with each child getting their own little "roll up"

Seating assignments were on a gorgeous Scroll hung in the grape arbor. We couldn't have asked for a better couple to finish out our season! 

Small Ceremony in the Forest

Not everyone has a huge wedding. Some folks like it quiet and intimate and for those, the Cottage in the Redwoods is ideal. Nestled in a forest of native trees and Redwoods in the Santa Cruz Mountains, it's  a beautiful setting to exchange those vows

A Casual Bo-Ho Chic Wedding

When Zephyr and Ben decided to marry, they didn't want your traditional style of wedding but rather something that felt like a long cocktail party that just happened to have a wedding ceremony somewhere in it.

To go about creating this feel,  Green Hills Cafe provided food for the "cocktail hour" and Gordo Gustavo's food truck wasopen for the remainder of the event.

The setting was perfect for this wedding. Rancho don Bosco's beautiful lawn area was set for the ceremony and also the cocktail time and the inside of the barn set up for dancing. Their band, the Naked Bootleggers played non stop from 6:00 on. The first two hours of music were provide by Jacob Martin and Bobcat, really nice guitar and stand up bass.

Zephyr's son Dante was the ringbearer and also had a little posse of his own guests enjoying his mother's wedding day.

Gordo's kept pumping out plates of ribs, brisket and tacos all night and the Discretion Brewery provided the beer to wash them down. Delicious evening and just the informal feel that they were going after.

Fall Wedding at Rancho!

Fall was in the air for Lindsay and Stephen's October 7th wedding at Rancho Soquel! 

The venue was adorned by amazing floral decorations of reds and greens. The welcome table consisted of photos of the newlywed's parents on their wedding day and the guest book, which was quilt squares for the guests to sign to be turned into the beautiful quilt later on. Their were also some funny and cute signs placed around the venue as well!

The bride looked stunning in a long sleeved, lace gown and she and her groom were glowing all  night! The flower girls were adorable in their pretty pink dresses!

We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of love and laughter!

Miss Miller gets Married!

The children in Lauren Miller's 3rd grade classroom weren't at the wedding on Saturday but their letters of advice to the bride and groom were, right along side the guestbook. "Be nice to each other" "Don't be Grumpy" were examples of the words of wisdom but hardly necessary for this sweet couple.

The bridal party looked fantastic in the navy suits and blush "dress of their choice". Of course the flower girls stole the show

Lovely table decor designed by the mother of the bride and a delicious Fall inspired meal from Feast for a King catering

Lots of dancing and a delicious dessert buffet of Banana Bread Pudding and Ice Creme wrapped up the evening. Of course a sweet cutting cake...who doesn't want that garter?
