I've really loved Rosemary and Ravi's warm, summer California wedding
- though some of that is due to the onset of winter weather on the East Coast right now!
For those of you venue searching
for a summer wedding, a great tip is to find a location with a usable indoor and outdoor space. And I don't just mean so you can have the wedding ceremony outside and the reception inside. Rosemary and Ravi chose Flying Cloud
in Sonoma County
as their venue and guests were able to use both spaces throughout the day to truly enjoy the location.From the photographer, "After the outdoor ceremony, guests moved inside for cocktail hour while the caterer set up the reception on the same garden area as the ceremony. Guests then moved back outside for dinner, toasts and a dancing performance. When dinner was over they headed back inside for dancing, but it was such a nice evening that we left the doors open so everyone could enjoy the beautiful weather and come and go from the dance floor and bar area."
Two elements I'm loving from the gorgeous outdoor reception decor:
From the bride: "All of our guests showered us with love and support and everyone seemed to have a great time. We spent many months planning the details of this day, but in the end it was our friends and family that made it so memorable."
- Aside from the flower centerpieces, the couple had frames with a picture of them in different locations and a description of that place, such as a picture from their trip to Goa.
- Bright flower petals strewn on the grass to match the wedding colors. Swoooon!
Congratulations to the newlyweds and a big thank you to Colin Michael
