What All Happened Part 5 of 5: A Wooden Valley Wedding

I can't imagine a better way to end a busy stretch than A&N's beautiful wedding at Wooden Valley Winery. Full of personal details lovingly executed by family and friends, the evening epitomized what it means for a community to celebrate the happy union of two amazing people. I'm so happy I could be a part of it!

Although Wooden Valley Winery is technically located a bit further down down the road in the (equally beautiful) Suisun Valley, many old friends from my neighborhood and elementary school were involved in the wedding, which added even more to my enjoyment of the evening.

The ceremony took place in the winery's barrel room, which the father of the bride transformed with soft, warm light from candles in hanging mason jars around the entire perimeter of the space. I echoed his work with hanging mason jars of flowers and more candles, both on the aisle chairs and the two easels framing the ceremony.


After the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing outside beneath the twinkling glow of Italian lights, paper lanterns, and table candelabras (which I surrounded with more mason jars of flowers).

The beautiful cake and assorted desserts were created by the totally lovely and lively Jen of Magpies.

Congratulations, A&N! I wish you nothing but continued happiness together!


  1. Jaime, you are a color wizard! And that cake topper is too adorable.
    I love the hanging jars. Your blog has been important to helping me edit out the work I dislike here at BSF. My goal has always been to love every flower and design that leaves my shop and thanks to you and a few others, I'm almost there! You're an isnpiration!

  2. Jaime, your contribution to the wedding was amazing!!! Your flowers were absolutely beautiful and we thank you for helping us to make the wedding special and beautiful. You are sweet and creative and a delight to work with. You have the ability to quietly listen and transform your client's thoughts and likes into floral art. Thank you xoxo J & K

  3. Wow, these are two of the most wonderful complements- thank you so much!

    Shelley, I'd say the feeling is mutual!

    J&K, the pleasure was all mine! It was such an honor and a joy to be a part of the wedding (which I thought was an especially happy and beautiful one : )! Thank you again!

  4. Wow, those beautiful colours almost look luminous, just stunning. x
