With the perfect setting for a summer wedding, all three of our couples this weekend enjoyed the best of the best weather! Monte Verde Inn is nestled in a small canyon overlooking the foothills to the South just outside of Auburn, CA. Just some of the enchanting features about our venue include the beautiful garden but also the ideal summer breeze that occasionally makes its way through the canyon. It is very reminiscent of the perfect summer day!

On Friday, we kicked off our weekend with a very fun and down to earth couple. Leila and Andrew put together details that were reflective of their whimsical and fun personalities. Each place setting had a beautiful menu card tucked into a white lamour napkin. In addition, Leila organized the cutest butterfly escort card display which provided each guest with their corresponding table assignment.

Their flower selection was very vibrant and lively, with bright purple and orange shades!  

We would like to Congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Leila and Andrew Campbell! We wish you the best in your future and thank you for sharing your day with us!

Our next celebration was with Mr. & Mrs. Katelyn and John Nystrom whom joined us on Saturday to celebrate their union! They had some very unique and beautiful details in their day, like these wonderful wood slats which held their escort cards and each table was adorned with a similar slat for the table numbers.


They had also had a very special sign made for the arch which was a sweet tribute to their day, whimsical & creative!

Katelyn and John had multiple photo collages displayed around the yard to share with their guests the journey they had been on to get to this day! The day was absolutely wonderful!

We would like to Congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Katelyn and John Nystrom! We wish you the best in your future and thank you for sharing your day with us!

We are delighted to have Amber Silva of Artistic Imagery back with us for another great wedding! Although her husband was unable to attend this event she had a wonderful assistant with her to aid in some additional amazing photography. Hopefully we will get to work with them again soon!

Near perfect conditions...

Despite some random weather over the past several weeks, we got a little glimpse of spring this past weekend. Temperatures remained comfortably in the 70's with a slight breeze and plenty of sunshine. What made those conditions even more favorable were the wonderful weddings we celebrated!

Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Katie & Ben Hoffman!

With creative idea's flowing many individuals participated in the projects leading up to these high school sweethearts big day. The cutest favors adorned each place setting, which were hand made by Katie's mom and a beautiful elaborate seating chart was created for guests to view.

The flowers selected by the couple were the perfect touch to the details of their day. Each table was set with the most beautiful centerpiece decor as well as a few large arrangements (strategically placed and designed by the Monte Verde Inn). The bride & groom selected a unique MVI vase for the centerpieces which complimented the flowers so well. 

Another creative bride & groom touch included cute little potted flowers in silver buckets that lined the aisle. The arch was decorated by O'Shay's Floral and Antiques from Auburn, CA with the prettiest sunflowers (the brides favorite). It was spectacular!

Katie & Ben provided elegant programs and little fans, which the Monte Verde Inn layed out to welcome guests as they reached their seat for the ceremony!

During the planning process, Katie & Ben worked with the Monte Verde Inn to design their perfect wedding cake, which turned out absolutely adorable!

Some absolutely breath-taking images of the grounds at the Monte Verde Inn, nestled in the Sierra Foothills outside Auburn, CA.

Ben & Katie have high aspirations not only in their personal lives but in their professional lives as well. We would like to congratulate them on their recent achievements and wish them the very best. They are a fun couple and we had a great time working with them!
