Allison and Mark planned a stylish summertime fete filled with exuberant colors and whimsical, artistic details. The ceremony was held on a lawn surrounded by vineyards at the Atwood Ranch, a 170-acre estate managed by Julie Atwood Events; Julie also served as the couple's planner. Allison walked down the yellow-rose-petal-strewn aisle to The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun," played by guitarist David Blakey, who was booked through Innovative Entertainment. This sign, made by Julie's staff, was set up near the entrance to the barn. The reception took place inside the ranch's split-level cedar barn. "We loved the outdoorsy, off-the-beaten-path feel of Atwood Ranch," says Allison. "Being able to have the whole property to ourselves for the entire day was also a big plus."
