A Whimsical Winery Wedding: Sunol, CA

Posted on

Over the weekend I was able to witness two lovely friends get married. The wedding was at Elliston Winery in Sunol and it was breathtaking. There was an old mansion on the property which made the wedding have a vintage feel. The rehearsal dinner was at Campo Di Bocce in Livermore and we had a blast. I had never been there before and was very impressed with the food. Everything I tried was amazing and I loved the different courses…and especially the desert. The night was very personal as we listened to speeches from both sides of the family and watched a slideshow the brides mom created for the bride and groom. The next day consisted of a lot of relaxing as the men had to do their “groomsmen” duties and prepare for the wedding which started at 5pm!

It was a lot of fun attending the wedding now that I work in the wedding industry (social team at Wedding Paper Divas). I noticed a lot of adorable DIY projects that the bride created and I really appreciated everything and noticed the little things. She spent so much time putting a personal touch into the wedding and it truly showed. From the wine bottle centerpieces used as “guest books,” to the flower petals down the aisle, the slide shows that were created and even the sparklers at the end of the wedding. It was all magical and I am so happy I was there and experienced all the love they had for each other!

I just came across this cute photo of Duchess and wanted to share it with you all! This was taken on November 12, 2011, the day Duchess came home from the airport. She was only 9 weeks old and now she is almost 9 months old! This was such a special day and I was so happy picking Matt up from the airport with this ‘lil bundle of joy! She fit in his carry on bag and they got to sit together (if she didn’t fit he was going to drive up from San Diego). Her name was Diva when we found her and boy does that name fit her!
