Madera Kitchen Hosts Intimate Industry Dinner

Last month, Madera Kitchen hosted a small group of wedding industry professionals for an intimate dinner on the Franklin Patio to showcase the endless possibilities their turnkey venue has to offer for weddings and events. Good company, great food, and a beautiful setting are the perfect combination for a wonderful evening and we are happy to have supported this event!

Guestswere hosted on the Franklin Patio where the roaring fireplace added warmth and a gorgeous glow to the intimate dining space. Two of their rustic wooden tables were placed parallel to each other on the patio space and topped with florals and colorful decor that perfectly complemented the signature yellow wall that served as the backdrop.

A colorfully patterned linen runner by Luxe Linen spanned the center of the tables and was topped by leafy green garland with coral and yellow hued blooms dispersed throughout.  Each place setting featured Premiere Party Rents’s beautiful grey china and gold flatware which was completed with a printed menu detailing all that guests could expect to enjoy for the evening.

Desert-Inspired Napa Valley Wedding Featured on BRIDES

We were thrilled to place Amanda + John’s recent summer chic wedding celebration at Tre Posti in St. Helena on BRIDES! Guests enjoyed a ceremony in the vineyard, cocktail hour in the garden grove and reception on the lawn.

ROQUE Events incorporated Himalayan rock salt in the most unique ways to highlight the Desert Chic theme. They started with crushed rock pink salt for the escort card trays that were custom built by Laura Lambrix Designs. That inspired them to bring in rock salt blocks to highlight the table numbers in a unique way. Guests loved them and we absolutely loved how they turned out! The floral was designed with the theme in mind and Soulflower definitely hit the mark throughout the wedding!

Thank you Taylor McCutchan Photography for capturing the day so beautifully. Click HERE to see the full feature on BRIDES!

Sophisticated Soiree Featured on Inside Weddings

We are so excited to see Makenzie and Andrew’s Pelican Hill soiree featured on Inside Weddings! A sophisticated soiree with luxurious floral decor was carried throughout the beautiful’s couple big day.

Chameleon Chair Collection provided their luxurious Gold Fanfare chairs for the celebration. Another romantic element of the soirée was the lovely floral décor designed by Flowers by Cina, which perfectly paired with the couple’s light palette of ivory, blush, gold, and taupe. “The rotunda at [the venue] was adorned with a floral crown using seasonal blooms in blush and ivory tones mixed with greenery,” Makenzie tells. “We also had white boxed aisle hedges filled with ivory and blush blooms, which were relocated to the reception and placed in front of the entertainment stage.” Among the arrangements was a sophisticated floral chandelier, which was suspended above the dance floor as everyone moved to the sounds of the live band. “I have been a dancer my entire life, so everyone knows I love a good dance party!” she beams. “For me, there was no wedding without hiring the best band in town, and I can proudly say we did just that.”

“Today I am thrilled to spotlight on The Fierce Lady Collection by Naama Anat Haute Couture which champions and celebrates the empowerment of women of all colour.

These fresh contemporary, fashion-forward yet elegant designs are ablaze with personality and turn the bridal market on its head.

International couture wedding gown designers and mother and daughter design team, Anat & Naama, have made their mark in the intricate and creative world of wedding dress design. Their studio was established in 1997 and they are trained in the most sophisticated techniques to create flattering silhouettes for the modern bride. Each design is hand crafted and attention to detail is not spared. The duo use luxurious fabrics and embroideries including French Lace, Silk, and Chiffon. They have now released their newest collection; the Fierce Lady Collection.

Anat and Naama were inspired to create this new line to empower women of all colour by including new illusion mesh that can accommodate a wide range of skin tones, promoting diversity and inclusivity throughout their designs.

Naama & Anat Haute Couture already guarantee their bride’s perfect size matching for their gowns as each gown is custom made to the individual bride’s measurements, but now these gowns are customized to coloor match, making sure every bride feels represented and beautiful in her one of a kind gown.

The Fierce Lady Collection will be available through any of the thirteen retailers across the globe that currently carry Naama & Anat Haute Couture.
