Theresa and Greg’s vintage-inspired wedding at Cordiano Winery was pure wedding elegance from start to finish. Their expert planner Kimberly, from Sisti & Co., perfectly designed every detail, from the vintage china settings to the antique peach-colored roses to the tea-party-inspired cake table. She also set up one of the sweetest entry displays with antique books, framed quotes from philosophers, maps, single-stem roses, and a scroll with quotes from British writers, which added a whimsical touch to the vintage vibe. We love how they used a dreamy grey and dusty blue color palette to keep the overall feel soft and romantic. And we especially love that Theresa’s gorgeous ballgown from Della Curva, which she topped with a delicate lace cape from Bridal Separates, had a subtle blend of those wedding colors. Melissa Alderton Photography and Yours Truly Media completely outdid themselves in capturing this one-of-a-kind California winery wedding!

As a wedding gift, I got Greg a personalized wood box with his favorite rum and 2 personalized glasses. The front of the box matched his signet ring that has both of our family crests on it. Greg got me the Jetsetter bag from Henri Bendel with my new initials hot-stamped on the front.
Our friend was our officiant so he knows us both very well. So well that he was able to Rick Roll us during our ceremony since Greg loves that song so much!
My wedding dress ended up being beyond my dreams! I was one of the Alfred Angelo brides, so my original dress did not work out. It actually ended up working in my favor, because the dress I wore down the aisle was one of a kind and amazing! Being a plus size girl, it is hard to shop for wedding dresses because most of the samples you cannot fit into, so you put the dress up to yourself and wonder if it’s going to look the same once it’s in your size. After doing some research I found Della Curva! Even though it was over an hour away, and most of their dresses were outside of my budget, I knew I had to look and see what they had — especially since I would be able to actually try on dresses! As an extra bonus (and how I knew it was meant to be), they had put selected dresses off to the side that they could discount for the women who were affected by the Alfred Angelo fiasco. My dress was on that rack, and thank goodness because I would not have been able to afford it otherwise! After I got my dress, everything else fell into place!
Our vibe was completely chosen by our wedding planner, Kimberly. Growing up, I was not the girl that dreamed about weddings, so I really had no idea what I wanted. With the help of Pinterest and Kimberly’s amazing talent, it all came together and I could not have asked for anything more!
Kimberly was so amazing about all of the personal touches at our wedding! From making wax seals from Greg’s ring to adding English and French philosopher quotes at our entrance area to finding the beautiful peach looking roses because Greg refused to have anything pink at the wedding.
With the help of my Maid of Mayhem, my roommate, and our wedding planner, I crafted the wedding favors. Kimberly helped me pick out the round craft boxes and the velvet ribbon, and my Maid of Mayhem helped me paint over 70 boxes ivory and grey. Once the boxes were dried, we stuffed them with York peppermint patties. After that, my roommate helped write on the lids and helped me tie the velvet ribbon on top.
