Stunning California Fall Wedding

View More Photos

As wedding coordinators and bloggers, we see many events and it is not very often we are taken by surprise. However, Ingrid and Eric’s big day was one that took us by surprise because of how stunningly beautiful it was. Captured by Nick Graham Photography, the couple wed at Villa De Nardi located in Winters, California and their big day was the perfect fall day!

Tan Weddings & Events coordinated this dreamy day and we love how everything turned out. The couple knew from the beginning that they were interested in an October wedding. After finding out about the Tuscan-inspired venue, they fell in love with the idea of deep navy and burnt orange color scheme and touches of burgundy.

The couple had initially wanted a large wedding, but eventually decided on a guest list of 30 people to keep things more intimate and cut down on costs. In addition, the couple decided to opt for a wedding planner, which they agreed was undoubtedly the best decision regarding their wedding.

The beautiful wedding ceremony took place under the California sun and was absolutely gorgeous. One big surprise for the guests at the ceremony was that the couple chose to write their own original vows for the ceremony and kept it a secret until the big day. Ingrid and Eric shared that it was an incredible and meaningful way to personalize their wedding ceremony.

Ingrid walked down the aisle in a beautiful lace and tulle gown she found at BHLDN. She carried a fall-themed bouquet from Bloom and Vine filled with burgundy, blush and orange flowers that tied in perfectly to the décor.

Our favorite part of the day, however, was the amazing reception and the décor within it. The tablescape was extremely swoon-worthy and was perfect for a classic fall reception. The guests dined on a scrumptious antipasto platter, with chicken marbella and vegetable tagine, catered by Gesche’s Gourmet. Later, the couple served cobbler and pumpkin pies for the guests because neither of them are crazy about cake. For favors, the bride made homemade ginger jelly with her bridesmaid and decorated them to match the theme.

We loved getting to see this gorgeous wedding come to life! Ingrid and Eric’s special day was absolutely amazing. We hope this wedding has inspired you if you are planning a fall wedding!
