Italian-Inspired vineyard wedding featured on 7x7
Surrounded by 360 views of the Mayacamas mountain range, and drenched in a honey-colored sunset, Michelle and Michael’s wedding was Italian hillside-inspired and brimming with beauty. With a yellow-golden theme and bright colorful details sprinkled throughout the ceremony, the Calistoga ranch celebration had a sunny vibe that lived up to its vibrant Italian theme.
Our friends at 7x7 magazine loved the Italy-inspired affair just as much as we did and wrote all about the heart-tugging love story and wedding inspiration in their recent feature. To see all the Italian elements and read an excerpt of the feature, keep scrolling!
Warm and welcoming, the sunny ceremony was just as full of color as it was love. Between the soon-to-be newlyweds and their adoring family and friends, love was in the air and the celebration took on a truly vibrant familial feeling.
Looking ravishing in her Amsale bridal gown as she made her way down the aisle, Michelle met her husband-to-be at the altar where the pair exchanged their vows surrounded by family and friends. After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a vibrant celebration complete with dancing, dinner, and many authentic Italian details, including a local farmer’s market cart.
The writers at 7x7 shared,
“Their wedding was all about Italian inspiration: espresso cart, limoncello, all family-style dishes, celebrating the local produce harvest. They had most of their close friends and family staying at the ranch for the three day weekend so they planned it like a week-long party. Michael once went to at a villa in Umbria and spent the days before the wedding playing soccer and bocce ball, lounging by the pool, hiking. It was a whole weekend of fun and celebration, not just the wedding.”
