Wedding Venue: Arista Winery Color My World
About the venue
Once you’ve taken care of the first important setting (the ring), it’s time to start thinking about a different setting. Fall in the wine country is spectacular, and celebrating the union of your families through marriage at one of Sonoma’s most gorgeous vineyards will give you an ever-lasting connection to this magical place. If you are engaged and your taste buds tend to be tickled by a good Pinot or Zin, then I can whole-heartedly encourage you to check out Arista Winery in Healdsburg as a possible locale for your nuptials.

I love this couple’s interpretation of color and texture; it flawlessly fuses a very traditional “winery” color palette with sumptuous fabrics and unique textures. It is a great combination of bold and dramatic without being showy. The undiscerning eye may regard this event as a traditional green and purple wine country color palette, but take a closer look…
Check out the table linen – the fabric is a Topaz style fabric. The iridescent shimmer creates the illusion of an underlying “grape” hue that incorporates so many unique options for your table scape. I encourage DIY brides to begin their reception design with an awesome table linen. Like many things in life, you only have so much “real estate” to work with for your wedding design and your dining tables account for a large percentage of it.
The filtered sunlight of a tree-covered garden or the soft warm glow of overhead cafe lights, the depth of a fabric like Hartman Studios or La Tavola’s looks amazing. The playful style of this fabric allows your late afternoon garden part to transform into a chic and starlit dance party without missing a beat.
