    Your wedding is AMAZING!!! Every little detail just compliments each and every other component: the platinum BM dresses look perfect with the reception decor, which looks STUNNING with your bouquet, which compliments your gown (your delicious, beautiful GOOOOOWN, OMG!!) perfectly, and your cake is elegant, and chic, and classic all at the same time! I think your vision was executed so perfectly!!

    CONGRATULATIONS to you both on a beautiful day, and on a beautiful new beginning[​IMG]

    Goldenstar--everything looks just lovely! I love your centerpieces; I''m looking to do curly willows too...when you have a chance for everything to calm down, I''d love to ask you some questions about your centerpieces, if you don''t mind?

    I remember seeing your dress before, and it''s just breathtaking on--what a beautiful bride! Congratulations, dear!

    Awww, thank you all for the thoughtful compliments. You ladies are so sweet and lovely. [​IMG]

    Alli, ask away! What would you like to know?


    I found a few more nice pics of some decor details. The lighting was so pretty.

    One of the ceremony trees that doubled as sweetheart table decor later in the night:

    A close up of an origami crane in the tree. My sister and I made 1000 of these in assorted sizes and they were scattered throughout the venue. For example: ceremony trees, hanging from chairs down the aisle, all centerpieces, in glasses on the bar...

    A table number...

    We used the same stationer for our STDs, invitations, programs, escort cards and table number. These all had the same design theme.

    You can see the lighting here and a better look at our linens.

    I adore your venue!! [​IMG] I thought it was the Carneros Inn at first, but when I realized it was Calistoga I loved it even more :) You and your groom are just stunning, congratulations on your gorgeous wedding!

    I love the Carneros Inn! It was our first choice but their site fee was outrageous. It was either Carneros Inn with a highly scaled back decor budget, or Solage Calistoga with money to play with. [​IMG] I have no regrets!

    At $400+/night for their cottage rates alone, I cannot even IMAGINE what the venue costs were! Your choice was perfect - you got those cabanas, that reception room, and the gorgeous grounds to play with for photos. Plus, you get the advantage of a unique venue experience since the Solage is all new and stuff :) SO LUCKY! I will never have the budget to have a wedding at a place like that, so thank you for indulging my LIW daydreams today!

    Hello Cake Sister. [​IMG] Your cake looks stunning, I hope it tasted as good as it looked! I''m so happy you booked Fat Angel, we were very happy with everything from there.

    Your dress though... *SWOON* I knew it was going to be dramatic and stunning, but honey it is OUT OF THIS WORLD ON YOU!!!

    And, I ADORE (I mean absolutely top 5 favorites) you wedding flowers. The greens and branches and cranes came together phenomenally. I can''t wait for your pro-pics!!!!

    I absolutely have to agree with all the comments about your dress...it is beautiful!!! I don''t think I''ve seen one quite like it, you''ve probably already mentioned this...but who is the designer? Or is it custom made? It looks like it was made just for you!! I love love love the straps...ribbons that tie. Just GORGEOUS! [​IMG]

    I saw it the other day and I just wanted to say that I CANNOT BELIEVE you are selling your dress! Well, it is gorgeous and at least you will have the picture from the designer. However, if I were you, I would keep it.

    Just lovely.

    I''ll be very sad to see my lovely dress go. It was a hard decision. I think I am okay selling it because I know I''m never going to wear it again and it won''t do me any good sitting in the closet. If the dress were less expensive I might consider keeping it, but I feel weird about having that money sitting in the closet. I know this is a cliche, but I truly want another bride to enjoy my dress. It would make me so happy. I''m communicating with a few buyers now, and one woman seems as enthralled with the dress as I am. I would love for it to make another bride''s dream come true.

    We splurged on top notch photo and video, so combined with my dress sketch, I think I have enough to remember my dress. Every time I see it in photos I smile at the memories. Also, I am going to use the proceeds from the sale to buy a pave eternity band. It will last forever and I''m happy to have that instead of a dress in a box.
