Summer in the Sierra Foothills.

A beautiful, romantic, summer garden wedding for Sherri and Drew at the beautiful Monte Verde Inn.

 Perfect weather, perfect location and perfect love! Make for a perfect wedding in the beautiful Sierra Foothills.  

 With ceremony and reception music provided by Joe Kalamaras of SJ's DJ the party lasted long into the night.  

 Beth Baugher of True Love Photography documented the day with her unique style of photography.

Not only did guests get to enjoy their choice of either peanut butter filled chocolate cake or strawberry filled white cake, a chocolate fountain complete with pound cake and fresh strawberries for dipping rounded out the evening.  All provided with the convenient packaging of the Monte Verde Inn!

The guests got to leave with a little memento of the wonderful day. A beautiful candy bar decked out in the colors of the wedding. Just another addition available here at the Inn.

Congratulations to a beautiful couple, with love from the Monte Verde Inn.

Tying The Knot!

Such a romantic day for Jessica & Phil at the Monte Verde Inn.  Jessica started her day getting ready in the beautiful Champagne Suite which is complementary for brides to get ready in. 
The Sierra Foothills couldn't have been more gorgeous that day for the happy couple. 

 Jessica's day was celebrated with Jessica Stout Photography which was super fun for the pair's wedding party.

The couple's decor was inspired by their love of sailing.  The Monte Verde Inn provided all the decor flowers, after which the groom attached a different "Knot" that served as the table identifiers.   The above photo was the "Tarbuck" table.   

The evening was enjoyed by all with the romantically lite garden along with the sounds of SJ'sDJ-Joe Kalamaras

A huge thanks and congratulations to Jessica and Phil for tying the Knot at the Monte Verde Inn!!!!

Romantic Sierra Vineyard

Amazing and breathtaking is all I can say.  Kristen & Andy's wedding could not have been more beautiful. 

From the amazing photographs provided by Jessica Stout of Stout Photography,  you can see just how beautiful the setting was for this very special couple.   

Nestled in the foothills of Northern California, just outside of Auburn, the Historic Monte Verde Inn offers a complete package from wedding planning to beautiful decor flowers to a fully custom wedding cake created on-site by one of the Inn owners, Kelly Dalisa.

Kristen and Andy's 4 tiered, fondant draped cake had a vintage feel to it.  Once cut, the guests got to choose from 2 flavors.  Some preferred the chocolate peanut butter combination while others preferred the pink champagne.

The ever fabulous Joe Kalamaras from SJ's Disc Jockey kept the party going and the dance floor packed all night long.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Andy Flores!!!

Summer Elegance

Such an amazing couple, Erica & Jason.  These two people were so easy to work with and really excited about their wedding at the Inn.  Even though they live in Boston, the ease of coordinating their special day was delightful.  It is especially easy to plan for our out of town clients as the Monte Verde Inn provides everything needed down to the cake & flowers.  Erica's vision and taste...just exquisite!   It's always a joy to share Jessica Stouts pictures

Quaint and Delightful

Even though it has been a couple weeks since Rebecca and Q's wedding, May 21, 2011, we still have to reminisce about the lovely detail that Rebecca brought to her wedding.  The cake was an amazing robin blue color with beautiful white gumpaste flowers.  Possibly one of my favorites.
Jessica Stout at was our amazing photographer and you can  view many more photos of this gorgeous wedding by clicking the link.  Jessica captured Rebecca's and Q's love for each other as she always is able to do.

Dancing under the twinkly lights made for such a romantic background for this couples dream wedding.

The decor and detail of Rebecca, a pottery barn designer, was really showcased in the beautiful and tasteful decor that made her day shine.

Thanks for the beautiful wedding Rebecca and Q!  Congrats and many wishes.
Happy Planning
Kelly Dalisa

All You Need Is Love.......

This magical mystery tour began at the Monte Verde Inn located just 9 miles from Auburn California on April 30th, 2011.  Faye & Patrick said their vows and shared their special day with all the people they love!! 

It is our pleasure to share with you the wonderful images provided by the fabulous Rebecca from Ford Family Photography

The well organized and super creative bride & groom, tastefully themed their wedding details to embrace the Beatles's Culture.  It was so much fun working with the couple because their vision was fined tuned and they knew exactly what they wanted!!
Even thought the Monte Verde Inn provided white mums centerpieces as part of the Inn's packaging, our bride went all out and ordered additional decor flowers from Martha Andrews at Bloom's such as the pictured Kermit Mum Pomanders.  The cute green spheres did a double duty in the ceremony site as well as at the reception area.  Fantastic idea!

Other incredible details included and created by the amazing Angela Dal Bon with custom invitations were the table identifiers, place cards & meal identifiers, programs and the seating chart.  Super Cute!! 

April 30, 2011

The music was a well thought project considering that the Beatles were involved.  The couple hired an incredibly talented singer Drew Harrison who plays for a tribute Beatles band from the bay area. He sang many songs by the Beatles during ceremony in addition to the cocktail hour. 
The happy pair danced the night away with of course a few tunes from the Beatles with the fantastic DJ Joe Kalamaras that provided both the music for the reception, lighting & the photobooth! 

The Monte Verde Inn would love to thank the sweet couple and give them our best for enjoying their special day here at the Inn.  Best wishes and happy honeymoon!!!

Congratulations!!!  Patrick & Faye!!
