Weddings In Woodinville 2015 Series - The Woodhouse Wine Estates

The third venue we're featuring in our Weddings in Woodinville 2015 Series is The Woodhouse Wine Estates. Coordination and design by Katie Aweida and her design team from Wonderstruck Event Design embraced the existing Mediterranean decor of the tasting room itself and increased the romance to create their 2015 venue theme of "Mediterranean Romance". 

2015 THEME – Mediterranean Romance

Enhancing the bold burgundy walls, high vaulted ceilings, wood details, and crystal chandeliers of The Woodhouse Wine Estates, rich wood surfaces and saturated tones of gold, burgundy, and navy were used in combination with fine glass, mixed metallic details, and lavish floral design to define the landscape of the venue.

Weddings In Woodinville 2015 Series - JM Cellars

The second venue we're featuring in our Weddings in Woodinville 2015 Series (miss the first one? See it here) is JM Cellars and their "Come Dance with Me" 1950's garden fête as designed and coordinated by Melody Davis of MG Davis Events.  

2015 Theme - Come  Dance with Me

In the spirit of Frank Sinatra JM Cellars celebrated in the grand style of a 1950s garden fête. Décor inspiration reflected a time when weddings were often held on a terrace or the lawn of a majestic home with all manner of pomp and circumstance.  As a cornerstone to the Hollywood Regency style, black and white was used as a sharp contrast to the abundance of deep greens in the landscape at JM Cellars while a sprinkle of platinum and gold added an extra layer of luxe. Scores of crisp paper lanterns canopied the dining area and dance floor where guests relaxed and enjoyed the music of a bygone era.
