Colorful Ironstone Vineyards Wedding

An elegant wedding in the countryside can definitely be styled to how you want it, so when Cat and John were planning their California vineyard nuptials, they wanted heaps of color and a lovely dash of whimsy thrown in for good measure. Their florist, Rare Palette, went all out in designing the wedding blooms, using wondrous combinations of peonies, tulips, and garden roses that got our hearts racing. We’re so glad Erin Milnik was there to capture this day!

From the bride, Cat: We imagined an elegant wedding in the country — classic, vintage, romantic, rustic. Our color scheme was navy with pops of orange, pinks, golden yellow, and greens. We had some DIY projects, including handcrafted petal cones, a custom welcome sign and seating chart made from reclaimed pallets and stained by John, our table number holders and table numbers, the weathered arbor (steel wool, vinegar, and black tea stain), seed packet name cards, and the ribbon garland on cake table.

From the photographer, Erin MilnikI’m thrilled to be sharing John and Cat’s wedding day with you! I met the couple in a coffee shop in Murphy’s California… the couple was staying in a cabin nearby, had been wine tasting, and decided they loved Ironstone Vineyards so much that they ended up booking it for their wedding venue. John is a design director at Clif Bar so the wedding would be full of great design and lots of color.
