Playing host to their guests that literally came from around the globe, Alexa and Dan did a great job of carrying out their “Farm to Table Fresh” vision, even while planning the wedding all the way from Boston! The custom letterpress invitations that they had created (see below) gave all of the guests a first glimpse of the wine country feel and set the tone for their entire experience. Alexa & Dan strived to plan a relaxing experience for all of their traveling guests, acting first as host and hostess, and secondly as bride and groom. Alexa’s background in the wedding industry, which provided her with a strong sense of what she wanted and didn’t want, coupled with the very talented event designer Jess Flood, created a remarkable event that captured the essence of Simplistic Elegance. From the rustic old barn at Annadale Estate Winery for the dinner and dessert, to Jess’s custom chandeliers created out of barrel stays, to the cocktail hour in the Live Oak Grove, to the dinner tables lined with rows of antique milk glasses bottles filled with loose garden flowers, every detail was thoroughly thought out and beautifully planned!
Here are just a few of the gorgeous details from Alexa & Dan’s wedding! There are so many great images to share with you, that I had to divide the post into two parts!! Enjoy this little sneak peek, but there are more details and images to come!
