A California Wedding with a Lavender and Gray Color Palette

A California vineyard plays host to a rustic, romantic wedding infused with tones of lavender and gray.

Jonie and Brad met at University of Pennsylvania Law School—so it was only fitting that seven years later, Brad brought Jonie back to where it all began and asked her to marry him. "We walked around the school and Brad suddenly stopped and said, 'Hey, do you know where we are now?'" Jonie recalls. "I looked around and realized that it was the exact spot in the law school courtyard where we had first met seven years prior." When Brad dropped to one knee, Jonie said yes.

The San Francisco-based couple opted to take their 150 guests to Kenwood, California for their September wedding 10 months later, hosting an outdoor celebration at Kunde Family Estate. Because the couple fell for the estate's natural beauty, they chose "rustic but pretty decor" and a neutral color palette of lavender and gray to complement, rather than compete, with the space.
