2016 Bridal Fair Decor

We love kicking off wedding season by hosting our annual Bridal Fair! We get the opportunity to partner with local rental companies to choose the latest and greatest in linen, lounge furniture, and wedding decor! This year we worked closely with Pleasanton Rentals and GBS Linens.

Picking out Bridal Fair decor always leaves us so inspired as there are always new colors trending each season. This year we opted for a lot of gold tones which brings a lot of warmth into the Terrace Room. On the patio we did neutrals with pops of purple to really bring out the green in the hills.

Our patio set into the hillside has a nice intimate feel. What better way for your guests to enjoy the patio than by sitting on cool lounge furniture? It’s always fun to create a new space in your wedding venue. From vintage to modern, anything goes! Also, our patio gazebo is thee perfect place for lounging! Patio 2We really lucked out with the weather! Bistro lights make for such great ambiance. Mixing prints and colors for the cocktail tables gave a little pizazz to the patio. We love how these linens hang creating a dramatic effect.

You can’t forget about the food! Along with some passed hors d’oeuvres we also set up our Cascading Garden Display; which is an array of fresh fruit, cheeses, vegetables, and spinach and artichoke dip. The gold tablecloth set in front of the waterfall makes for such a picturesque food display.

Traditionally sweetheart tables are circular. However, we went with a rectangular sweetheart table for a grander feel. Why get chairs when you can opt for a loveseat? Paired with gold silverware and gold trimmed glassware? We’re sold.

There’s something about  navy blue that feels so classic and royal. Paired with silver accents makes for a very elegant dining table. These beaded chargers are a great statement piece. Not to mention these dramatic glass candelabras!

FullSizeRender_4Chandeliers are also becoming more popular. We love how it can transform the look in our Terrace Room. P.S. Yes, those are real candles!

"My husband and I used Elliston for our wedding in March 2016. The prices are very reasonable, and the staff is so responsive and amazing! In the Winer/Spring it is GORGEOUS with the green hills! The stone mansion is also a beautifully lit area for all of your pre-wedding pictures. Thank you!" - Kandice & Matt - March 18, 2016
