Erin and Greg in Paso Robles, CA

A lush vineyard is the backdrop for an intimate, sun-drenched wedding that turns magical and romantic after dark.

When Erin and Greg were searching for a wedding venue, they visited HammerSky Vineyards. But after some thought, they decided to reserve a different site. "However, one day we confessed to each other that we weren't completely happy with the new location and immediately switched to HammerSky," Erin says. "It was the best decision we could've made." She wore a gown by Alvina Valenta, purchased from Mon Amie Bridal Salon. "I loved that the dress wasn't white—it was a gorgeous blush color." She carried a bouquet of pink peonies and dried globe thistles that she created herself. "I wanted it to look like I was holding freshly picked wildflowers," says the bride, who also made the boutonnieres.
