California Old World Wedding Ideas at Allegretto Vineyard Resort

"Claire Pettibone’s couture wedding dress designs became the artistic foundation to the romantic design that combined California and European ambience with feminine baroque details for late fall inspiration. Amanda and Matt were such a fun and beautiful couple that brought life to everything around them. Staged at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, Ashleigh + Erik and Vanessa Noel Events came together to imagine an old-world design with layers of texture to create softness and interest. Noonan’s Wine Country Designs constructed overgrown centerpieces in stoneware urns overflowing with lush blooms, foraged foliage, and seasonal fruit atop cascading silk chiffon that puddled on the limestone below. A feasting table was staged inside Allegretto’s Abbey to create a romantic transportation to another place and time. The glow from stained glass windows created beautiful warmth that brought botanical chargers, cut crystal, and vintage candelabras to life.

Paper Cake Events pulled inspiration from the plaster walls of the Abbey to create a moody and modern cake with gradients of purple and grey. The touch of gold leaf and baroque detailing was the perfect accent to bring together the modern with the old-world."
