The Couple: Aimee and Mike
The Wedding: 9.16.12 – Jacuzzi Family Vineyards, Sonoma, California
What three adjectives best describe your wedding? Intimate, Ethereal, Bespoke.
What was your wedding color palette? Warm corals, pale pinks, seasonal greens.
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We wanted to bring a little New York City to Napa Valley. We both love to eat, drink, entertain and travel and a destination wedding to our favorite part of the country just made sense. We are super lucky to have such amazing friends and family who supported us and were willing to fly across the country for us. In return, they were treated to an amazing dinner in the vineyard and custom cocktails by Rye on the Road.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? We were both on the same page from square one with what the vision was. We knew exactly what we wanted and we never let outside opinions affect our decisions. Our dinner in the vineyard was always the focal point of the wedding. We knew if the weather cooperated it would be a very unique and memorable experience and it was.
What piece of advice would you give to a bride planning her wedding today? Think outside the box a little. There are so many personal touches that you can do that dont have to cost a lot. And remember at the end of the day as long as the music is good and the drinks are flowing it will be a great time.
