The Couple: Cher and Ian
The Wedding: 6.12.10 – Shady Oaks Winery, Napa, California
What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Casual, elegant, vintage
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? We love vintage style, casual elegance and the feeling of being with family. We wanted everything very personal and for each person to feel special. We hoped our guests would come home feeling like they had gone on vacation and not worn out from being dragged around.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? It’s very difficult to pinpoint just one because the entire experience was a dream. If I had to pick I would say walking out of the church and climbing into our white convertible vintage car, looking around at all our friends and family with the beautiful church and blue sky in the background…feeling like an absolute princess with my handsome smiling husband at my side.
What was your wedding color palette? Blue was definitely a theme but we brought in all colors…sort of a big Monet painting.
