An extraordinarily pretty weekend-long celebration with unique blue-hued details
A few weeks ago, the incredible wedding photographer Laura Grier and I were catching up over sushi and sake, and she told me all about today’s gorgeous wedding. Laura wasn’t just the photographer at this even, she was also doing double duty a bridesmaid — all while wearing a blue corset and tutu! Sound interesting? It gets better…
Cher, who happens to be a doctor of emergency medicine (only in Beverly Hills could an ER doc be such a total babe!), married her adorable marketing exec groom Ian, at the Shady Oaks Winery in Napa Valley, CA. The entire bridal party spent the weekend at the winery’s main estate, enjoying croquet tournaments, wine and cheese tastings, pool parties and more. The wedding was filled with amazing personalized and creative details, from Cher’s layered blue petticoats to plantable wildflower seed-infused paper programs to centerpieces made of books, apples and flowers. A million thanks to Laura and her Beautiful Day Photography for sharing the fun with us!
Behold! Cher’s jaw-dropping Carolina Herrera wedding dress.
Matching blue robes for the bridesmaids made getting ready fun, and the robes doubled as bridal party gifts.
Yes, Cher is an actual ER doctor. I consider it a feat if I manage to get out the door wearing matching socks. Meanwhile, Cher is off saving lives while looking like this. Pretty darned impressive, no?
A rare glimpse of Laura in front of the camera!
The wedding’s butterfly theme honored Cher’s late mother, an accomplished artist and photographer.
Seersucker suits looked super cool on even the littlest member of the bridal party.
The most fun and flirty bridesmaids dresses ever.
Bottles of fresh pressed olive oil were wedding favors.
