Bring on the Color! Kazuyo and Shingo’s Kate Spade Wedding

We’re back with more from Kazuyo and Shingo’s bright, cheery Arista Winery wedding! This fun event was put together by the awesome team at Bliss’d Events. If you missed all the lovely details from the first half of this adorable day, go back and check out their emotional ceremony.

The second half of the day was filled with joyous portraits, exotic appetizers, and the cutest cake we’ve ever seen!

We love his over-the-top boutonniere! colorful_wedding_reception_2 The bridal party was all smiles after the wedding; we can’t get over those rainbow-hued Kate Spade dresses! Casual wedge sandals were the perfect shoe (and comfy too!) for this outdoor event. colorful_wedding_reception_3Break for munchies! Posing for photos is hard work!
colorful_wedding_reception_4 Kazuyo and her bridesmaids look so lovely in their bright colors. We hope more brides opt for these saturated shades! colorful_wedding_reception_5 Kazuyo and Shingo take some time for romance before rejoining the party. Don’t they make a dreamy couple? colorful_wedding_reception_6 colorful_wedding_reception_7Colorful balloons are the perfect accessory for this whimsical wedding!

It’s one of Caroline’s favorite places to go when she’s in San Francisco! colorful_wedding_reception_18So many delicious choices – what a spread! colorful_wedding_reception_20

Japanese beverages as well as Arista wine was served at the reception.

We love seeing a groom who takes his style seriously! We’ve also never seen such a creative way of wearing a tie!

Toasts and well wishes greet the couple back to the reception. colorful_wedding_reception_19Wine barrels decorated with childhood and family pictures of the couple make for a thoughtful display. Personalized lollipops are a sweet favor for guests. colorful_wedding_reception_8

How amazing is this cake?? Pinwheels like those that decorated their ceremony space are repeated here – provided by Patisserie Angelica in Napa.

colorful_wedding_reception_14 I’m sure it tastes as good as it looks! colorful_wedding_reception_15The night ends with a triumphant bouquet toss caught by one of Kazuyo’s colorful bridesmaids. What a happy ending!

We wish you all the best guys, much love and happiness!
