Lucky & Lucinda's Sunny Vineyard Wedding

Lindsey Nickel

Vineyard weddings never get old! Especially on a sun-soaked day with a beautiful couple! 

Lucinda and Lucky were together 7 years before Lucky popped the question with a romantic engagement in Cabo. Being from Colorado, they love being outside and embracing the beauty of scenery. On top of embracing nature, they also share a passion of wine, so when it came to choosing a place to get married, it was very clear that wine country in California was the perfect fit!

When they toured Gundlach Bundschu Winery there was an instant connection and they felt at home with it's secluded and breathtaking scenery surrounded by the vineyard and wine cave. Lucky and Lucinda's goal and inspiration was for the wedding to be elegant, romantic, fairytaleish, and as much fun as only one could dream. They loved the fact that having a destination gave them more time to be with their guests and took the pressure off at the actual wedding. 

It could not have been a more gorgeous day and the backdrop was breathtaking! We love working with this couple, and they definitely achieved a fairy tale ending!

Natalie and Brad's Classic and Timeless Wedding

Lindsey Nickel

Natalie and Brad will always stand out as a wedding we loved and will never forget. They are a very sweet couple who loves the outdoors and adventures. Skiing is one of their favorite activities. When they first started dating they would book ski trips on Friday to the newest snow for the weekend and off they went. The ski town of Jackson Hole was the perfect fit for their summer wedding and Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club was the perfect venue. The cloudy day didn't stop this wedding from being beautiful and tons of fun! From the arch, to the garlands, to the antler wedding logo, no detail was overlooked. Natalie and Brad recently welcomed a baby boy into their adventures as well!

Chelsea and Mason's Casually Elegant Wedding at Sylvan Lake Estate Featured on Borrowed & Blue

Lindsey Nickel

"Casual" and "elegant" are the perfect way to describe Chelsea and Mason's wedding at Sylvan Lake Estate. We had a blast working with this down-to-earth couple and were excited to see their special day featured on Borrowed & Blue.

Chelsea and Mason's romance began working together on a political campaign. As Northern California natives, the couple has always loved the relaxed atmosphere and picturesque beauty of wine country. They selected Sylvan Estate as their venue because it still felt like an intimate destination within close proximity to their families.

EV Floral Design's lush green and white floral arrangements were breathtaking. Delicious gourmet pizza from Ca'Momi contributed to the elegant yet casual feeling of the day. The night ended with an unforgettable dance party to the sound of the Decades Band and a delicious treat from Johnny Donuts.  See the full details on Borrowed & Blue!

Dana and Kevin June 21, 2014

Dana and Kevin didn't need the luck of the Irish (a tribute to their days at Notre Dame) to get them through their wedding day! They had each other and the closest of their family and friends to help with that!  These two spent a lot of time thinking about how to make their wedding day as important and enjoyable for their guests as it would be for themselves. They thought of even the smallest things like what the guests could do while they were waiting on dinner to be served...A cross word puzzle!! I think it was such a cute and creative idea, plus the guests loved it! Lots of thought and creativity went in to week's worth of activities and the day of their wedding. Dana and Kevin wanted to show their guests why they chose Jackson Hole for their destination wedding.  The weekend included bringing guests to Spur restaurant and bar which Jackson Hole voted "Best Chef". This was followed up with an epic trip to Jenny Lake the next day and a hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. The day of the wedding continued with more fun things to do and see around Jackson. Dana and Kevin wed at Our Lady of the Mountains, a beautiful Catholic church in Jackson. The ceremony included a few readings, a responsorial psalm, an alleluia, and an Ava Maria. This was all topped and concluded with a final blessing of the Notre Dame Alma Mater, "Notre Dame Our Mother." Not to be missed was the thoughtful  "Marry Like A Champion" sign! It was so awesome to watch guests put their arms around each other and sing the alma mater!! After the ceremony, guests took a ride up the famous aerial tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. While guests were enjoying the views from the top of the Rendezvous bowl, Dana and Kevin went off with their photographer Katy Gray to capture a few pics in some of Jackson's iconic locations. They met up with guests at Calico Restaurant for cocktail hour full of lawn games and photo booth opportunities! They sat for dinner, Dana's dad gave a tear-jerker toast followed by a toast from her brother. A lovely dinner with family and friends and a little cake (decorated with a beautiful view of the Tetons) closed out the evening and they shut it down like a champion...

Marry Like A Champion...They definitely did!

Congratulations Dana and Kevin! Thank you so much for letting us be part of your wedding day!! It was such a pleasure getting you know both of you and your families!! I hope to see you both here soon celebrating your anniversary!

Sonoma Wedding Venues : Cline Cellars and Suite D, plus La Tavola

Lindsey Nickel

img_2924.jpg

Hello there! Now that we are officially Napa and Sonoma wedding planners, I thought I would share what I have been up to here in California. Over the past few weeks I have been visiting wedding reception sites. Let me tell you, there are many gorgeous and different options. You don't have to be a wine connoisseur to have your wedding in a vineyard or wine cave. So here we go, this is the first day of wedding site visits in Sonoma. The first two spots were Cline Cellars and Suite D. It is not a coincidence that I went to these two places first. A few years ago (in my not so distant life as a nonprofit consultant) I stopped in at Cline on a wine tour during a work trip and was thrilled to find these wines in Jackson Hole. Suite D is the even space of the oh so delicious Fig and the Girl in Sonoma, which is one of my favorite places to eat in Sonoma. Oh, I also went to La Tavola. La Tavola has a linen for any and every event and celebration you can imagine and conveniently they have an office/warehouse/showroom in Napa! My snap shots from the visits are below. Enjoy!

Cline Cellars - options for all sizes of weddings and two donkeys!

Welcome to Cline Cellars!

view driving up, there are vineyards everywhere. This was the first site visit so I was a total tourist.

options for large weddings

Barrels by the entry, barrels every where!

Barrel room for indoor wedding receptions

They have two donkeys!

Suite D - If you love the food from Fig and the Girl and you will love this space. Think rehearsal dinner or casual wedding in Sonoma.

See that mural on the wall? It is on canvas and they have four different ones so you can customize your event look

Charming lights hung from the ceiling.

La Tavola - Behind the scenes and in the showroom, inspiration everywhere. A few weeks later I was fortunate enough to attend the La Tavola Spring Release Party so I included a few photos from those tables too. Start pinning now.

Vintage, Elegant, Artistic

Maggie and AndyJuly 20, 2013

After my first phone call with Maggie and Andy, I knew this was going to be a fun wedding!! They had met miraculously on-line and fell instantly for each other. In the time since they met they hosted dinner parties, traveled the world, ate pounds and pounds of sushi and fine cheeses, and attended friends' beautiful weddings. With all this under their belt, it was time for them to throw a wedding of their own. They wanted a James Bond feel with a vintage, elegant, artistic flair. Could we make this happen in Jackson Hole...Of course!! Maggie and Andy specifically wanted lots of good music and especially good food (minus cake...they both hate cake). Maggie being an art teacher used her artistic talents to create fun, locally inspired welcome bags for all their guests and made cute horse shoe favors for all the guests at the reception. The week boasted of a welcome dinner at the Four Seasons, wedding party white water rafting trip, rehearsal dinner at the Kitchen, and reception at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis. This wedding would not have been complete without a western inspired photo booth, exquisite wine, and tactical Oscar style spoofing of both their brother's during their toasts. After an amazing dinner, the DJ turned it up and the dancing began (props included) and it only stopped because they hit the venue curfew. I think they would have danced the night away had they been allowed!! Both bride and groom wanted to show their closest friends and family a good time in Jackson Hole and their goal was accomplished!!

Their elegant yet adventurous wedding week would not be complete without a dream escape and honeymoon in Santorini, the Amalfi Coast, and Venice.

Congratulations Maggie and Andy!! Best wishes and thank you for letting us help coordinate your amazing wedding!!

We Found Love and a Flash Mob

Quinn and AllenSeptember 29, 2012

Quinn and Allen met in Jackson, spent time traveling together, and decided to have their wedding in the beautiful town where Allen is from and where they live. It is always fun for us to work with local's on their big day!

quinn

They knew they wanted to show friends and family a great time while they were here. It started with a Welcome Party and Pub Crawl to some of the favorite watering holes in Jackson. Friday took guests on one of Jackson's favorite activities, floating the scenic Snake River followed by a wonderful dinner in town.

This was all an introduction to how fun and amazing their wedding on Saturday was going to be. The ceremony at Our Lady of the Mountain Church set the mood for the beautiful, rustic scenery that was to come. And after the ceremony, guests were off to the beautiful views of Spring Creek Ranch for the reception. One of the first things we asked Quinn was how she envisioned her wedding day and the key words were laid back, good time, dancing... And so it was!  The band really set the mood that is was going to be a great night of dancing.  A flash mob even showed up before the night was over dancing to We Found Love by Rihanna.

The wedding day was so amazing they extended the party until the next day with a "Recovery Brunch" for guests. The guests and bride and groom were still smiling. What an amazing weekend!!

Alexa and JakeJuly 28, 2012

Lovely, that is the first word that comes to mind when I think of Alexa and Jake’s wedding at Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis and ceremony at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Everything was lovely. First off, Alexa is a young and joyous lady, you just feel cheerful being around her. She probably got that from her mom, whose primary goals for the day were not to be stressed out and to start dancing as soon as possible.  Alexa’s dress was lovely. Alexa and Jake are the cutest head-over-heels in love young couple and they were so lovely they looked like they belong  in J.Crew’s wedding catalog. The tent was romantically decorated in soft neutrals with lots of candles. It was lovely.

David Stubbs

I must admit, I was in disbelief and a bit worried when every time I check in with them they said “Everything is great.” Nothing more, nothing less always “Everything is great.” How can everything always be great? Well it can.  The whole wedding day can be great, even perfect. The day can be everything the bride wants and more (Alexa told me that is how she the day was for her via text the next morning). Perhaps the secret to lovely is to be carefree, and have a "love is in the air" attitude. Lovely.

Our Work Featured on Style Me Pretty - Fall Rustic Chic

Jackson Hole Photo Shoot

by Stephanie

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have the biggest sweet tooth. I’m the kind of girl who could eat cupcakes for breakfast and feel no shame. But when this Jackson Hole shoot featuring the prettiest array of sweets hit my inbox, I came to the conclusion these desserts crafted by Persephone Bakery were just too cute to be consumed. They instead deserve a home inside this rustic chic photo shoot so perfectly put together by Katy Gray Photography and xowyo paper and press. It’s a shoot packed to the brim with inspiration, and we’ve got every last pin-worthy picture waiting in the full gallery here.

From xowyo paper and press….Our vision was rustic, wild and western, all while being elegant and feminine. We decided to shoot after the trees had lost their fall-colored leaves. Why would we do that? So many of the most beautiful weddings are held in the peak of summer or fall. But our shoot shows that you can have a gorgeous Teton wedding any time of year. We created a relaxed, rough, dusty, rustic look. Our florist describes it as dirty mountain chic, like a scene from a movie star cowgirl’s wedding. It’s laid back and gritty but simple and gorgeous.

The look of the shoot really started with the vintage Airstream from The Silver Bungalow. As Airstreams have become a big accessory for many weddings, this Jackson company has created a business around renting out its vintage Airstream. We wanted to show brides how they can incorporate an Airstream into a wedding, not just for pictures but as a staging area, as the bride’s dressing room, a lounge for the reception and as a decorative, showcase item. From there, we chose elements to capture a rustic, soft feminine look, combined with the beauty of the outdoors. A local rental company, Hunter Gatherer, provided a ton of vintage furniture, pillows and other decor to keep with our theme. And as the name suggests, owner Greer Terry hunts all over the West for unique pieces of vintage furniture and decor to accent weddings. Some of her favorite items in this shoot were vintage church pews.

Flowers were selected with rustic elegance in mind. The florist chose silver bowls to tie into the metal and silver theme of the Airstream. Those set the look from the bottom up. The Wyoming/Jackson Hole landscape color palette was the inspiration for the flowers. The silvery/white smooth bark of aspen trees dappled and cut with dark black swaths of color Inviwas mirrored in the flowers. The florist used locally cut dark (almost black) cone flowers and branches to contrast with the dusty pinks and the romantic, elegant look of the dinner plate dahlias and hydrangea. She also incorporated tons texture to mimic the wild grasses, sage brush, aspens and jagged mountain peaks, the rustic essence of our town. As for the cakes, a local artisan bakery, Persephone Bakery, created an artful elegant cake that expressed both rustic femininity and a connection to the beautiful floral abundance present in the Tetons during the summer months. They used a soft peach palette with subtle touches of lace to create an understated vintage element while keeping the design both simple and beautiful. They also provided French macarons to play off the monochromatic palette of oranges, pinks and peaches that reflect the colors of the setting sun in the western sky.

xowyo paper and press created invitations suites that paid homage to Jackson’s wildlife and color palette. The images have a vintage, throwback feel that are reminiscent of the Airstream era. But to keep things wild and rustic, they printed individual menus on brown paper bags and one larger one on a sheet of muslin. The gals at xowyo are always looking to keep things fresh and different, and the muslin menu not only served as decor during the reception, it’s also a sentimental piece the bride and groom can have framed to hang in their kitchen later on. The xowyo gals really wanted to show how some iconic Jackson images can be used in a way that is refined, fun and elegant, not hokey western that so many people are afraid of. The one thing us vendors lacked was an actual wedding gown. But out model, Tara, used her mother’s old gown from when she was married in Jackson 20 years ago. She spent the morning like an actual bride, getting her hair done by Kate Kelly and makeup by Tanya Crocker. They really gave Tara a natural, ethereal look without making her look too done up. This is the Wild West, after all. Of course, none of this could have come together without the help of Lindsey Nickel at Events, Etc. She kept us all organized and on schedule.
