Heather and Andrew wanted a winery wedding, and after looking at venues in Napa and Sonoma valleys, they settled on The Mountain Winery in the South Bay. "My family is based there, and it made more sense to marry closer to home," says Heather. "Plus, The Mountain Winery has a beautiful balcony overlooking the valley." The bride wore a Rivini gown and carried a tree peony-and-dusty miller bouquet.
After a high mass held at Sacred Heart Parish in Saratoga, the 210 guests made their way to the winery, where cocktail hour took place on the upper patio. Dinner was served in the Barrel Room. "We wanted to create a cozy, romantic atmosphere," says Heather, who planned the wedding with the help of Kristina Taheri Special Events. Tables were decorated with tall and low arrangements of roses, berries, and dahlias surrounding wrought-iron lanterns and candelabras. All floral design was by Bloomsters.
