Michele shares the story of her and Matthew’s elegant California wedding, perfectly planned down to the last thoughtful detail.

Anne Barge Amherst wedding dress. Real wedding from Nordstrom.

Our Location & Theme: We got married on Valentine’s Day at St. Michael’s Church in Livermore, CA. The reception was at Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in nearby Pleasanton. When looking for a venue, we knew that size was going to be an issue. We had a guest count of 350 people, so we were limited. St. Michael’s Church is stunning. We knew the second we walked into Casa Real that it was the place for us. It was in the heart of a winery, had a beautiful entry and the room for cocktail hour had a fireplace to keep everyone warm!

I am a fan of anything neutral and gold. We wanted a very classic and clean feel. We brought in nine chandeliers and lighting of our own to create our vision. We alternated flowers and candelabras at the tables with different linens to match. Our venue made sure that everything was done perfectly and provided our guests with anything and everything they could want, including a fry bar in case anyone needed a midnight snack. Our seating chart was on a large antique mirror—one of my favorite things that we did!

Our Location & Theme: The Valley Club in Sun Valley, Idaho. Set on two golf courses at the base of the mountains, it’s one of our favorite places and was completely picturesque.

As we had a fall wedding, our colors were navy and charcoal for attire, coral for flowers and napkins, and sage for invitations, programs and table numbers. I loved the long Jenny Yoo bridesmaid gowns and let each bridesmaid select whichever style she liked. The guys wore their own charcoal suits with Hugo Boss ties and whimsical Paul Smith socks, both in navy. It was nice to have a bright pop of color with the flowers and napkins.
