After meeting with Trisha, Michael, and Trisha’s parents, I knew I was in store for a real treat with this wedding. Not only are Trisha and Michael truly in love with each other, they are both in love with all things wine. We took this passion and created a wedding that was definitely “All Things Wine.”
Trisha & Michael chose to tie the knot at sunset in the enchanting rose garden at the Richard Nixon Library . I loved watching these two share their vows as it was evident that their love truly runs deep! One of my favorite elements incorporated into their wedding ceremony was the blending of wines. Trisha, Michael, and each of their parents were included in this moment, and able to share such an intimate time with one another.
After a touching wedding ceremony, Trisha & Michael grabbed a few shots with their photographer, April Smith Photography, and their wonderful Videography team, of ElmanAdam Films, while their guests ventured off to enjoy a few cocktails and treats by none other than White House Catering.
There were so many sweet and personal touches incorporated into Trisha & Michael’s cocktail hour to showcase their passion for wine. Trisha created a monogram out of wine corks for their guest book table. She also made stands for guest placecards out of wine corks.
Guests were then invited to join Trisha & Michael for their wedding reception in the East Room. So many devine touches from the florals to burgundy colored linens, stunning mantle arrangements, and an absolutely glam head table.
This Old Garden Gallery did a wonderful job incorporating the wine theme into the table arrangements. Each floral arrangement was set on a wine box to showcase their wine themed centerpieces!
Each guest received a personalized wine glass as their wedding favor. Rather than a wine glass for the flower girl and ring bearers, Trisha selected stuffed animals with personalized name tags and had them placed at their seats. What a wonderful surprise for these sweet children!
Wedding cake stands always add such a spectacular height and dimension to any wedding cake. A wine box was the perfect candidate for the job!
