See How a Fall Garden Wedding is Perfectly Done

Ivy and Keith call New York City home but decided on a destination wedding in California’s wine country. And really, can you blame them? It’s a little slice of heaven on earth where the vino is always flowing, and weddings equal al fresco dinner parties with food from vendors like Paula LeDuc. Amy Kaneko Events helped the couple add personal touches throughout, including custom cookie favors of their pup, Lucas. Go get thoroughly inspired in the gallery from Jose Villa.

Ivy & Keith are a fun-loving couple from New York City that wanted a destination wedding in California’s wine country. After scouring venues around Napa Valley, they fell in love with Beaulieu Garden.

Amy Kaneko Events designed the wedding around the classically romantic setting with some whimsical touches that fit the couple. Ivory flowers were set against charcoal gray linens, and delicate iron chandeliers were suspended above the dinner tables (enhanced with just a touch of ivy, as a playful nod to the bride). Julie Song Ink created gorgeous printed materials, from watercolor invitations depicting the ceremony site to escort cards with personalized drawings of Ivy & Keith’s favorite places (my favorite was Hogwarts).

Ivy and Keith are unabashed dog lovers and such a fun-spirited couple, so even though the wedding was formal and timeless, there were lots of playful references to their pup Lucas. From a reading during the ceremony entitled “How falling in love is like owning a dog” — which was hilarious and actually rather poignant — to cocktail napkins and bar signs with watercolor portraits of Lucas. We even made custom cookie favors in Lucas’ exact image, down to his spots!
