All-White Calistoga Wedding

“Max and I were engaged next to the Golden Gate Bridge on a regular-old dog walk, he proposed with a timer on his camera and caught me in shock holding our dog in my arms! After blubbering and crying I said yes” 

Tessa and Max had such a uniquely intentional and simply-flat-out-fun wedding. Her #bridetribe was flanked in all-white alongside her stunning two-piece gown by Rime Arodaky. I loved their nod to Max’s cultural heritage with an Argentinian meal for their guests.

First of all can we just talk about Tessa’s dress by Rime Arodaky? Oh my, how amazing does she look! And that bouquet, all made from one rose, stitched together to make one HUGE single rose! The incredible Floral Design was created by Michael Daigan Design. “My bouquet was absolutely epic, it was one single ‘rose’ composite bouquet, I was obsessed with it after finding it on Pinterest.”

“Our wedding day ceremony was under the Oak, reception under the walnut trees at family-style tables, and band/dancing in the barn… Everything was on-site and our guests didn’t need to leave or worry about logistics. There was also no phone service which I believe lead to people being more present and engaged.”

“Max & I collect matchboxes so we personally designed matchboxes and had those up for grabs for people to take home. I also personally created the seating chart which was a massive circle with leaves aligned to which table guests were sitting at, I was laboring over this the morning of the wedding while I should have been getting pampered so I wouldn’t recommend it! ;)”

“Max and I surprised our guests with a fun dance to Apache – Jump On It which was just epic! Seeing everyone’s faces just brought us so much joy.” View the live video from their epic dance here!
