Romantic California Winery Wedding: Kara and Peter

Romantic featured wedding by Halberg Photographers Kara and Peter planned a romantic California winery wedding for 150 guests. They chose the Solage Calistoga for their wedding venue, a picturesque locale that provided the perfect backdrop for their I Do's. Navy blue and pink letterpress invitations were sent out, and a relaxed, comfort food-inspired menu was selected for the reception. All of Kara's favorite flowers (roses, peonies, hydrangeas, sweet peas, and tulips) were incorporated, and soft pinks and purples dominated the ceremony arrangements. The bridesmaids' bouquets were various shades of pink, violet, and lavender, and the bride's bouquet was created using pale pink peonies (no small feat considering the end of August wedding date)! All the bouquets were simply wrapped with navy blue ribbon. The groom, groomsmen, and fathers wore white rose boutonnieres, and the ceremony aisle was covered in pale pink rose petals. And the wedding reception flowers were... incredible! Low, lush centerpieces filled with gorgeous flowers in shades of apple green, ivory, and various gradations of pale pink. Since Kara and Peter met, fell in love, reconnected and got engaged at Cal U, it was important to bring a little Cal to their wedding day. Before the date arrived, the couple took photographs at various Cal landmarks and these photos were printed in Sepia tone and used as table numbers. Instead of a traditional guest book, two posters from Etsy artist LoveInLetters were framed and matted. One poster read 'All You Need Is Love' with 'Peter + Kara' underneath, and the other read 'Love Is All You Need' with 'August 21, 2010' underneath. Wedding guests signed the matting, and the posters now hang in the couple's San Francisco apartment. Nothing about this gorgeous California wedding was over-the-top or fussy. Kara and Peter knew that all they needed was each other and friends and family to make the wedding day spectacular, and Halberg Photographers captured each and every moment spectacularly!
