It was Ryan and Gina’s event designers who instantly knew that they were a perfect match when they met to hear their plans to host an intimate and classic wedding at the gorgeous Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, CA. The result was absolutely flawless. With photography captured by the ever talented Ashley Maxwell, their wedding designers at Every Elegant Detail share the inspiration behind their beautiful day.
When describing their wishes for their wedding day we could not have been more thrilled. One very important aspect to both Ryan and Gina would be the food and service for their guests. They wanted amazing ingredients prepared and presented to their guests family style. Some of the highlights of their meal by Componere Fine Catering, included an amuse course of Kumamoto Oyster, Green Apple Ice, Serrano Chili followed by main courses that included Wild Alaskan Halibut Cheeks with fried capers, Grilled Block-Cut Ribeye, Potato and Root Vegetable Risotta and ended with an exquisite sweet dish of Chocolate-Malt Kulfi, Crushed Cardamom Caramel Corn.
The decor and ambiance was also equally important to Gina and we worked with Amy Burke Designs to come up with a floor plan of kings tables and square tables with candelabras and romantic florals to accent the dining space on the terrace at the Villa. Hydrangea, garden roses and dahlias played a large part in creating the feeling we were going for throughout all of the spaces. Gina looked absolutely stunning in her Monique Lhullier wedding dress flanked by the bridesmaids in their BHLDN persimmon dresses.
