Love Succulently - A Modern Winery Wedding {Part 2} Santa Ynez

And so the Love (Succulently) story continues... Bianca wanted all white flowers at the ceremony because her name Bianca Flor means white flower in Spanish. For the ceremony decor, we used a clean and modern collection of vases filled with stems of white hydrangea. We placed some of the vases on rustic wine barrels to complete the look, and we also incorporated white pomanders and large succulent blooms into the design.

Found Vintage Rentals provided the amazing pews for the ceremony. The pews completely transformed the winery courtyard and helped complete Bianca's vision. At the end of each pew, we placed a wooden box filled with white hydrangea and succulents. The center of the aisle was created with vintage carpets Bianca collected from various thrift stores.

The lovely Jasmine played the dual part of photographer and maid of honor seamlessly... 

Because Bob Marley's music played such an important part in Matt and Bianca's relationship, they hired a musician to play his songs during the ceremony.

I adore how their family and close friends shared in their happiness with lots of love and laughter...

Jasmine's bouquet was created with ivory roses, white lisianthis, gardenias, succulents and accented with brasilia berries. The bouquet handle was wrapped with chocolate brown satin ribbon and accented with the same beaded gold chain link trim as Bianca.

Another fabulous Found find is this riddling rack. We used the riddling rack as an "escort card table". The holes were filled with an assortment of wine bottles, sheet moss, dahlia blooms, ivory roses, and succulents. 

Bianca wanted each table to feature a collection of various eclectic pieces and floral arrangements. We used various vessels and gold candlesticks found at local thrift stores. As well as wooden boxes accented with fabric trim.

Bianca also created drink stirrers printed with their wedding "logo" for their custom drinks.

The napkin treatment was one of my favorite parts of the table... I love the contrast of the merlot napkin with brown and gold fabric trim against the pop of green from the echeveria bloom.

 Not a single detail was overlooked for their sweetheart's table from the brushed gold votive candles to the succulents tucked into wooden containers. 

And they lived... happily ever after...xoxo
