Napa Private Estate Wedding: Christine + Mitch

Today we’re featuring this Napa private estate wedding photographed by White Ivory Photography. Christine and Mitch’s wedding in Napa Valley, California has plenty of beautiful details!

Their photographer Sandra tells us, “It’s a classic wedding with a slight rustic flair, influenced by the Tuscan style architecture of the winery with hints of Tiffany blue, black and burlap. The couple, Christine and Mitch, traveled from Vancouver, B.C with their closest of friends and family to celebrate their sweet union.”

The wedding reception featured elegant round tables with the wedding party seated at a rectangular head table. To ‘reserve’ the seats, small bouquets of baby’s breath wrapped in burlap ribbon were tied to the chair backs.

The couple had sweet bursts of Tiffany blue everywhere — even in these elegant cupcakes that were designed like miniature Tiffany & Co. boxes.

The bride and groom chose to have a small cake for the cake cutting along with cupcakes for guests. Their cake was square shaped and featured Tiffany blue icing with a white ribbon on top in place of a cake topper.

Do you love pairing wine and cheese for cocktail parties and fêtes with guests? Want to tie it in to your wedding reception? You’ve come to the right place! We’re even offering a giveaway from Wooden Hive just in time for the holidays! But first… we’ve talked about wine wedding ideas in the past, but wine and cheese wedding inspiration? Now that’s a new one. I don’t know why we’ve never really talked about it; perhaps it’s because this wine and cheese wedding trend is, well, trending.

I mean, it’s not every day you see a cheese wheel wedding cake, you know? Stinky, yes; but does it make a statement? You bet.

At your wedding (or during cocktail hour), you could offer professional grade pairings of wine, cheese, and olives. Here’s a guide to help.

When guests enter the reception space, help them find their seats with escort cards placed in cork holders.

For centerpieces or cute decor touches throughout, try these cute votives: just place a few corks inside a glass votive holder and add a tea light candle on top.

Or this DIY centerpiece idea, which uses grapes, wine corks in a glass vase, and a wine bottle with label for the table number.

A wine and cheese wedding would look most lovely in a winery setting. How about this gorgeous inspiration?

Gasp. That’s gorgeous.

And it also would require a sit down family style gathering, with cheese and wine flowing like good conversation.

For cocktail hour instead, you could set up a serve-yourself station with cheeses and appetizer plates so guests can sample what they’d like. I love how this is set up on a pair of wine barrels to tie in the theme effortlessly.
