Californian Vineyard Wedding: Tandya & Jonathan

The Story: Tandya is a Los Angeles based blogger (you can follow her at Simply Tandya or on Instagram @simplytandya). She is renowned for her love of neutrals and penchant for elegant, modern and minimalist styling. It is therefore no surprise that her wedding to Jonathan was styled to perfection in a manner that reflects her signature style.

The Location:  This wedding was held at the beautiful HammerSky Vineyards, overlooking an extensive vineyard and mature Oak and Cypress trees. This distinctive property nestled in the westside region of Paso Robles, California is home to fifty acres of rolling vineyards and meadows. In addition to the working vineyard and tasting rooms, the property houses a resorted farmhouse built in 1904 and a traditional barn brought in from New Hampshire.

The Vibe: Crisp, elegant and modern with an eye for detail. The styling of this wedding was inspired by the romantic charm of the French wine country. The restrained classic colour palette of white, ivory neutrals and gold accents is effortlessly timeless and chic, especially against the lush backdrop of the estate’s vines.

The Details: Guests were warmly welcomed by a deco-inspired gold champagne wall set up on the lawn. This was followed by an al fresco meal shared on long tables amongst the vineyards. A standout décor element was the rustic chic head table from Restoration Hardware. Neutral toned floral arrangements filled with white roses accentuated by lush greenery added some romance, with hundreds of white rose petals decorating the aisle. 

Tips & Highlights:

  • If you are pregnant at your wedding, hire a great photographer to capture you and your bump so one day you can show your little one that they were there with you on your big day.
  • In addition to having Alexandra Stav Photography capture their official wedding photos, the booth from The Photobooth Experience was the perfect way to capture those more spontaneous moments.
  • If you are planning to have your reception outdoors in a breathtaking setting like a vineyard, a classic or neutral colour palette will ensure that no one steals the show from mother nature.
