My wife and I planned a small wedding with only our immediate family and close friends. It was a special day for us we had to find a venue that was just as special. We decided to have it at a Nonini Winery located in Fresno, CA. The owner there was so great and welcoming he helped make it an easy event to create. When you enter you are awed by the huge wooden barrels that have been there for many years. We did low lighting with lot’s of candles and silver lanterns to give it some pop. At the end of our reception we gave each lantern away to each couple with a personalized note. It’s an amazing feeling to visit the homes of our guest and see a piece of our wedding being used to decorate their home, giving us all a lasting memory.
I painted some signs and decorated with beautiful fresh flowers. My Favorite was my bouquet, the mixture of hard and soft flowers went perfect with the rustic theme. I also made a photo book for our signing book. I included pictures of all of our guests and had them sign and wish us well wishes for our future together. I will cherish that book forever!
We opted for a small wedding party with our Best Man and Maid of Honor and a flower girl. Andrea chose her brother Adrian and I chose my bestie Michelle and our flower girl was my youngest niece Audrina. Well, she didn’t hold flowers instead she walked our Dog Jimmy down the Isle. I later asked Audrina what her favorite part of the day was and she said, “It was wearing the pink dress because it matched yours” (she melts my heart). Everyone had a great time and it gave us so many great memories. Enjoy the rest of the pictures!!
We couldn’t have asked for a better day! The memories we created will stay forever in our hearts. Oh’ what a Happie Day for sure! 🙂
