Real Vineyard Wedding: Kristen and Kyle

Mar 1 2011

Love in the air … A beautiful-sunshine-y day … Wine country. And one very gorgeous couple! Now doesn’t that sound like the perfect wedding day mixture?! Exuding romance and all things ‘Tuscan wedding’, Kristen and Kyle were married at the dreamy Viansa Winery & Marketplace in Sonoma Valley, California.

Wedding Pros

Wedding Coordinator from Viansa: Meredith Lynch.
Photographer: Joey Villadolid {of Moody Stills Photography} for Loveliness Galleria. The following four photos {single bridesmaid, flower girl, bridesmaids at the altar, violin} were captured by photographer Austin Benton.
~Kristin and Kyle chose Timeless Style design~ changing the color scheme to eggplant and silver … for their Invitation suite {Layered invite} and Thank You Note Cards via MagneStreet Weddings {shown below}.

Enjoy as our oh-so elegant bride Kristen, shares highlights from their big day!


Wedding Colors: eggplant (purple) and silver. It seemed fitting for a winery. I definitely loved the deep, saturated purple that we ended up going with. Silver was just a nice accent to the purple.

Favorite wedding day detail: We gave guests two different little party favors. The first was chocolate covered gummy bears, which is a childhood favorite from the Sweet Factory, and the second was a wine bottle favor, so guests could take the wine back with them.

Best wedding day advice: RELAX! If you don’t relax, you don’t enjoy your day, and I definitely followed that and had the best day. The other one is to get a wedding planner. They are God’s gift to brides.

Advice I wish I would have taken: I wish I had taken a list of poses I wanted. There were some key shots that were missed, but it was due to the hustle and bustle.

Why a vineyard wedding? I was born and raised in San Francisco and have always ventured to wine country whenever possible. I wanted my wedding to be at home, but the city didn’t attract me as much as beautiful Sonoma Valley.

My wedding day was seriously the best day of my life. Viansa, and our wedding coordinator, Meredith, did a flawless job of transitioning and taking care of everything. Every little detail was there, and it was just perfect.

Wow. What a beautiful venue. Thanks Kristen and Kyle for sharing your wedding day with the world. Congratulations to you both! We wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness.
