Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Becky & Jon Perry!

A unique approach to wedding colors, Becky & Jon selected a beautiful peacock theme! With our venue being nestled in the foothills, it was a perfect location for their theme. They had shimmering turquoise, blues and purples... the details were not overdone. They selected a champagne colored overlay for each table and brilliant shimmering green napkins which only highlighted the colors in the peacock feathers that were placed at each place setting.

For their flowers, Becky & Jon selected an assortment of brightly colored flowers from O'Shays Flowers and Antiques in Auburn, Ca, that simply finished the overall look of their wedding! 

When the bride and groom came in for their planning meeting, one of the many things they finalized was the design of their centerpiece floral decor. They wanted orchids for their centerpiece flowers and our in-house floral designers were happy to design something that would accent the already gorgeous set-up.   

In addition to the centerpiece floral decor, Becky and Jon also worked with Kelly to design their custom wedding cake. The cake was simply stunning, a beautiful white swag cake with crystal broaches (which the bride hand selected) along with the perfect cake topper, signifying their union!

It was a wonderful evening with fun for everyone!

- We'd like to extend our sincerest wishes for each of our couples this weekend! We wish you the best as you head off into their new future! Congratulations! - Monte Verde Inn

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Jonathan Vaughan!

It was a spectacular day, the weather was absolutely amazing! The sun was shining and their was a soft breeze melodiously whispering through the trees.

Our bride was in a state of tranquility when she arrived but was eager to start her day! We quickly unpacked a few things she had brought and got her settled in for a relaxing afternoon. With a 5pm start time, our bride had plenty of time to hang out with family and friends! 

O'Shays Flowers & Antiques came up in the early afternoon to decorate the arbor. Ensuring all the floral details that our bride and groom had requested were well taken care of. The arbor looked amazing as did the bouquets and boutonni√®res.

The Monte Verde Inn floral designers did a great job of creating cohesive custom floral decor for each of the tables, as well as some stunning larger arrangements which were placed in the alcoves of the ball room and on the hors d'oeuvres table.

As the ceremony site was set and the weather was an ideal Spring setting. The bride and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready as the guys were doing the same. The photographer was buzzing around snapping an assortment of photos! And the chef was busy creating a heavenly cuisine fit for a king and queen! The venue was alive with action!

The reception area was all set-up and ready for a fun-filled memorable evening! To assist their guests in finding their assigned seats, the bride and groom created a foam board full of beautiful easy to read escort cards. In addition, they provided personal place cards for each guest, which were placed at each setting. The guests had no problems find their seats!

Our bride and groom had decided on small votives with floating red candles which tied the red in the floral decor all together.

As the winners of the SJDJ Photo Booth from our Open House, guests had a great time putting on funny little props and letting their inner child shine!

Once dinner was all done, it was time for the bride and groom to cut the cake! They were nice to each other despite the playful JAWS theme playing in the background. They worked with Kelly (MVI owner/cake maker extrodinaire) to design a breath taking ivory colored cake with elegant detailing embossed all around the cake and completed with a pearl border. The bride and groom provided a beautiful "V" monogram cake topper which sat perfectly between the fresh ivory roses! The cake was amazing!

The wedding for Alyssa and Jonathan was beautiful and elegant! A wonderful time was had by all!

- Monte Verde Inn would like to extend our gratitude to Mr. & Mrs. Vaughan for allowing us to be a part of your special moment! We wish you the very best in your future together!
