Brittany + Scott: Sonoma Wedding Reception

Welcome to the last installment of Brittany and Scott’s gorgeous Sonoma, California wedding! This beautiful wedding is wrapping up with all the most delicious details saved for last. A Savvy Event pulled out all the stops and created some chic signs, put together some adorable flower groupings, some gilded accents, and pale pink linens.

The El Dorado Kichen was the perfect mix of casual and contemporary, and such a great space for entertaining!

Love love love that vase display! Little pops of color can make all the difference! And Brittany’s pale pink linens and gold chairs look beautiful in the space.

What a great way to organize your seating! Rather than searching for your name amidst table groupings, the guests are listed alphabetically. And who doesn’t love a fabulous chalk board??

The elegant typography in gold is the most beautiful touch! These impeccable table settings really set the scene for a classy affair.

Ribbons, pale pink and white flowers, a lush setting… you can feel the romance in the air!

We adore this modern take on bride and groom’s chair decorations with these mossy letters – it perfectly plays up the green accents throughout the decor.

Look at this fabulous board!! We can credit the amazing team of A Saavy Event for this massive backdrop. Courtney, their resident chalk-ista talks about this awesome project on the A Savvy Event blog:

“I did a really large chalkboard backdrop for Brittany’s wedding and to be honest I was terrified to do it! She wanted an 8’x8′ sign with their names, then guests could stand in front of it and take pictures. I have never done anything on that scale so it was intimidating to imagine. Luckily I have a great husband who helped me build the stand-up boards. The frames stood in my living room for a week while I worked on it bit by bit. It’s my favorite project to date because it was a personal challenge and I felt so accomplished being able to deliver it on her wedding day. Plus I think it looks pretty rad!”

So do we Courtney!

We are totally blown away by this cake! Sweet on Cake created this delicious dessert, that looks far too pretty to cut in to!

Such a brilliant idea to personalize your cocktail hour – signature drinks! The Bride’s choice was the “Moscow Mule” and the Groom’s a “Manhattan”.

Yum! These fancy little hors d’ oeuvres are the epitome of finger-food!

Adorable little dessert bars are all the rage – and there’s no guessing why! Everyone likes to feel like a kid in a candy store!
