Kayla & Grady’s Golden Autumn Saratoga Wedding

Grady and Kayla wanted something natural and whimsical. Seeded paper was used for all paper items including invitations, menus, place cards, etc. Flameless Candles and lanterns traced the aisle then were used as center pieces on the long wooden farm tables and outlined the entire reception space.

Kayla tried on 60+ dresses when she finally went to Nephi Garcia to get a custom dress. Kayla told him she wanted an Aline and Blush dress and he did the rest.

The bodice’s design had a blush under lay with hand-sewn French lace and the skirt was layered ivory organza and horsehair ends. He even hand dyed the veil blush to match the underlay.

Kayla’s something blue were her madden girl chunky heels. Her something old was her late grandmother’s pearl necklace.

Baby’s breath was the only flower for its simplicity and its meaning of “ever lasting love”.

House Family Vineyards is a special place to Kayla, Grady and their family. They got engaged at sunrise and have now married at sunset. Our farm tables where decorated with candle center pieces and plated with gold rim ivory plates and  matching gold silverware.

Dinner was served at the table. First course was a spinach salad with watermelon, brie and fried shallots. Guests’ second course was a choice of ribeye steak, a mustard chicken, eggplant neopolotain and mac and cheese for the kids.

DJ All Ears, Richard, sang during the cocktail hour and DJ during the reception. Everyone thought he was amazing and would recommend him to everyone!

“Cherish the moment.”

Kirra, the maid of honor, wore a Bill Levkoff  dress. While Grady, Andrew, best man and Grady’s brother, Father of the Bride and Groom wore light navy Bonobos suits.
 
Baby’s breath was the only flower for its simplicity  and its meaning of “ever lasting love”.  An amazing family friend, Holly, did all the bouquets boutonnieres and wristlets for family and wedding party, along with so much more. 
 
Kayla and Grady wrote their ceremony together with the desire to make it simple, romantic, and short. The aisle was lined with ivory rose petals and lanterns. Grady and the Wedding party walked down the aisle to “Something Like That” by Granger Smith and Kayla walked down the aisle to “Yeah Boy” by Kelsea Ballerini. Concluding the ceremony with “I’m Yours” by Stevie Wonder.
House Family Vineyards is a special place to Kayla, Grady and their family. They got engaged at sunrise and have now married at sunset. Our farm tables where decorated with candle center pieces and plated with gold rim ivory plates and  matching gold silverware. The phenomenal menu was provided by Rodney Baca, a close friend and renowned chef. The appetizers were served buffet style and included BBQ chicken pizza, bacon wrapped dates, bruschetta, and meatballs. Dinner was served at the table. First course was a spinach salad with watermelon, brie and fried shallots. Guests’ second course was a choice of ribeye steak, a mustard chicken, eggplant neopolotain and mac and cheese for the kids.

He sang the first dance song, “It All Started With a Beer” by Frankie Ballad. The guest book was interactive and left with a personalized pen at every table. Games like giant Jenga and Yardzee were out for the reception, but most mingled and danced. The mouth watering cake was from Cake Expressions in Santa Clara. They served lemon with lemon curd filling and white with burnt almond filling.
Kayla and Grady’s advice to wedding planning couples:
Keep it small. We had 80 guests and still felt like we barely saw everyone. While you are planning, keep it simple, have a lot of friends and family by your side to help bring it all together and remember it’s only one day of the rest of your lives together. Spend your money on what matters most to you. Save everywhere else. When the day comes, spend as much time as you can with your guests and your new life partner. Cherish the moment.

 Most couples reserve their date in our calendars 12+ months prior to their wedding day.
