The Couple: Andi and Andy
The Wedding: 9.10.11 - Arista Winery and Studio Barndiva, Healdsburg, CA
What three adjectives best describe your wedding day? Joyful, warm, relaxed.
Was there a decor theme that ran through your wedding? What was the inspiration for that particular idea and how did it reflect you as a couple? We had dual inspiration from northern California wine country and the reception site, Barndiva. The theme was centered all around the sunny outdoors - “rustic wine country chic” with a dash of folk art.
What were some of the different ways you used decor elements to create the beautiful, cohesive event you were envisioning? The color theme of chocolate brown paired with coral, orange and pink was represented in the bridesmaids' dresses and flowers, table linens and favors. The groomsmen wore navy blue suits with orange and blue ties, which added a nice accent of color.
Where did you choose to hold your wedding, and how did the location influence your decor decisions? Barndiva is a restaurant and art studio that is all about locally sourced, amazingly prepared food with rustic, folk art decor. This was a huge inspiration for all of our decor decisions, although not much decor was needed as the setting itself was beautiful on its own.
Looking back, do you have a favorite project or successful decor idea from your wedding? Tell us what you loved about it! The chocolate brown table linens really gave a rich, lush feel to the outdoor setting while making it more relaxed and inviting at the same time. The white china and coral, orange and pink flowers really “popped,” which may not have happened with only the standard white table linens.
