When I think of Rachel and David, I think of cool – calm – collected. Cool because they were an amazing couple to work with (plus had great style). Calm because they stayed level headed on their wedding day on what seemed to be the hottest day of summer. Collected because these two just have it all together! I mean seriously they couldn’t look more in love.
Their wedding colors were a royal blue accented with grey and green with pops of purple and pink. The bridesmaids wore short blue dresses that were all different from each other paired with nude heels. The groomsmen looked dapper in dark grey suits, blue ties, and a brown shoes.
Can you believe Rachel diy’d her flowers? I love the contrast of the olive leaves and greenery against the softness of the roses. Also, I think blue thistle is now my favorite wild flower.
I love these shots of them dancing in front of our vines!!
Rachel and David’s bridal party had an effervescent energy that continued into the evening making for a great dance party! T-Swift was playing all night and it was pretty amazing.
In addition to their bridesmaids and groomsmen, Rachel and David also asked 2 of their friends to stand in as flower girls. I thought that was sweet and unique.
Elliston Vineyards’ greenery made for the perfect backdrop for their wedding. Burlap runners under wood slabs with assorted mason jar floral arrangements seamlessly tied together their rustic forest theme. Let’s not forget about the assortment of succulent favors set at each place setting. Rachel thought of everything, down to the little bows tied on said favors.
Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs! We wish you two a lifetime of happiness!
Special thanks to all of the amazing vendors who helped make this day possible:
""We were very lucky to get married at Elliston. The place is beautiful and has its own charm being hidden within Niles Canyon in Sunol. Madeline was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing - she always answered all my emails right away (even on her day off), she was quick and very helpful with decorating tips and ideas. We were allowed to bring our own wine and décor. Our ceremony and reception were absolutely perfect - we had buffet for our guests and the food was delicious : filet mignon was juicy, salmon perfect and chicken very tender. Thank you Madeline for giving us the perfect day of our lives Elizabeth and Rafael"" - Elizabeth & Rafael - May 27, 2016
