From The Bride…We were looking for a romantic, outdoor location in wine country. Boot Hill at Kunde Family Estates was our dream site with huge live oak trees and 360-degree views of harvest-time vineyards. Gorgeous!! We wanted to allow the rustic beauty of the vineyards to take center stage, so all our décor was chosen to complement the views. Our colors were warm and natural (blush, coral, gold, and dark greens), and the chairs, linens, and table settings were a blend of rustic and romantic. Because the views were phenomenal, we kept the décor simple with only small succulents lining the aisle and large paper flowers on the oak behind the wedding party. We didn’t want to go with an “autumn” feel but wanted to keep the florals very indigenous and natural – think dahlias & ranunculus – and also mixed in seasonal fruit such as pomegranates, pears, apples and kumquats. Everything had a very “just picked” feel to it and nothing was too stuffy. The star of the show was the cafe au lait dahlia which made an appearance in my bouquet and some of the centerpieces. Here’s a few wedding planning tips: 1. Create a budget range and then prioritize the components of the wedding that are most important. Then realize that the actual cost can run 10 to 20 percent “over” budget, so plan accordingly! 2. Start looking at venues early to have the most choices. For example, the location venues we considered already began to fill 9-12 months prior to our desired wedding month. 3. If having an outdoor wedding, consider provisions for inclement weather. A tent to calm a windy day and/or keep guests dry on a rainy day is an example. Outdoor heaters for the cooler evening is another one.

From Odalys Mendez PhotographyA collector and artisan at heart, Leah knew when she started planning her dream wedding that she would be involved in every last detail. She incorporated family heirlooms and traditions into the day, bringing treasured family antiques to the gardens to make her guests feel like a part of her home. The day was a warm meeting of family and friends, surrounded by the beauty of nature, and steeped in relaxed southern comfort. Heirloom photographs of ancestors were included in the invitation suite. To honor the groom’s interest in boating, small wooden sailboats floated on ponds throughout the venue.
