Two words… eye candy! The olive groves of Southern California inspired this beautiful stateside destination wedding. Carli and Michael’s affair at Allegretto Vineyard Resort was thoughtfully planned by Keri of Always Yours Events and every detail was perfection. Alongside Bows and Arrows Florals, Keri incorporated jewel-toned greens and pops of color through both flowers and textures. The design embraced the location’s unique aspects, including jars of local olive oil for guests, and an intimate alfresco tablescape that was enjoyed in the candlelight as the sun set over the vineyard.

Tuscany or California? You tell me! I’m soo excited to share this vibrant + romantic Italian-inspired elopement with you today. Lena + Josh were a vision at Allegretto Vineyard in Paso Robles, California. The day featured luxe details + pastel florals that perfectly accented the rolling hills + olive groves on the resort’s property. My favorite moments were captured in front of the venue’s real Italian wedding chapel – it felt as if we were transported straight to Italy!

It wasn’t three months after Tammy and Hunter met that they discovered they were each other’s equals. When they got engaged, Tammy said she wanted a small wedding – just closest family and friends who supported them as a couple. They dreamed of a destination affair in California, outdoors by the water, with pretty string lights and food everyone would enjoy.

Beltane Ranch is a charming inn and historic landmark in Sonoma. Set among olive orchards, vineyards, heirloom gardens, and even free-range chickens, it’s the perfect California escape. […]
