Standout Memories of Our 2012 Weddings

We have so many great memories from the weddings we planned in 2012, that we wanted to write a little recap of those that stood out the most.

Here is a list of our top 10:

1) Rachel & Blake:  Married at  Cavallo Point Lodge, we used Mission Blue Chapel for their ceremony location and then transformed it into an after party lounge for late night dancing.

2) Jennifer & Brandon: For this 353 person wedding at Beaulieu Gardens, we created a custom tent complete with a chandelier, which we erected over the dance floor.

3) Ali & Jake: During their ceremony at Durham Ranch, they chose to use unique songs by The Pixies, The Smiths, and The Cure.

4) Tanya & Mike: For this Sonoma-based wedding, we hired a savior and sweet food truck as an inventive way to serve guests dinner and dessert.

5) Jaime & Tim: The couple chose to have a dear friend marry them for their December wedding at Flood Mansion, which was a fun and relaxed way for them to become husband and wife.

6) Michelle & Tommy: During cocktail hour at Beaulieu Gardens, we created an open-air photobooth complete with 3 suspended frames and props.Michelle and Tommy

7) Cathy & Alex: After their ceremony, the couple and their wedding party joined a New Orleans style band, which paraded guests through the streets of Healdsburg to their reception at Barndiva .

8) Charlotte & Marc: We hired a live painter to depict scenes from the wedding reception.

9) Courtney & Neal: For their wedding at The Inn at the Presidio on January 31st, the couple rented out the entire 22 room hotel, making for a fabulous New Years Eve wedding and one giant house party.

10) Gretchen & Spencer: We hired the always entertaining Wonderbread 5 for the wedding reception, who pulled the bride on stage for their second set wearing their infamous crazy suits.

Rita + Olin Tie The Knot

Just minutes outside of the small town of Glen Ellen, nestled off the Sonoma Highway, you will find Beltane Ranch. A bed and breakfast with some good ole’ country charm that would be the perfect back drop for Rita and Olin’s September wedding. With fifty-five of their closest friends and family the couple was able to share their love of food and wine with a long intimate dinner table. Some of the evenings favorites served by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering included, Crispy Prosciutto Cups, Peppery Greens with Oven Cured Tomatoes, Braised Lamb Shank, Summer Berry Tartlets and Fresh Blueberry Macaroon Sandwiches, oh my! Enjoy!
