Italian Wedding

August 10, 2012

This destination wedding reception could have been in Italy, in a private garden in a number of beautiful European cities, but it took place on the beautiful patio at Tra Vigne Restaurant in St Helena. Luxurious moss green linens set the stage for lush centerpieces of white hydrangea, ivory roses, lisianthus and sweet peas, and small greenery topiaries, dotted with arrangements of lemons. The ceremony was simple and elegant, taking place at Jacuzzi winery earlier that afternoon. We anxiously await gorgeous photos still to be revealed by photographer Shannon Stellmacher, detailing the entire wedding & reception, the bride’s gardenia bouquet, the flowing glamorous and stunning dresses worn by bride and her maids of honor. We will share these wonderful images once they arrive!

What People are Saying about Fleurs de France . . .

June 11, 2012

“Fleurs de France (Jessica Switala) did the flowers for my wedding at Viansa Winery and they were absolutely amazing. Everything was perfect — the ceremony flowers, bouquets, boutonnieres, guest book table and candy buffet arrangements, and especially the centerpieces. All of the flowers were more than I could have imagined, and yet were exactly what I wanted. Definitely consider hiring Jessica if you are getting married in wine country!!”Gmcksbride

“The real gem in the entire experience of working with Fleurs de France, is the owner Jessica, who does such an amazing job of bringing your vision to life. Jessica met me in person at the venue, spoke with me over the phone on several occasions and came up with some amazing and creative ideas. Throughout the entire process, she was wonderful about brainstorming and was a true problem solver as we discussed ways to tackle some concerns that I had about a certain look that I was hoping to achieve as we created our outdoor altar/backdrop. Without a doubt, working with Jessica and Fleurs de France was a 5 star experience all the way and worth every budgeted penny.”Lizette

“Fleurs de France was a delight to work with. The owner Jessica, was able to see our vision and was extremely successful in creating our dream wedding! Jessica is one of the sweetest, most patient and kind hearted people and florist one could ever hope to work with in this very special time in a couples life.” Kelly Padidar

“Jessica at Fleurs de France did an outstanding and amazingly beautiful job for our wedding in Napa. The weather played a very tricky role as it never rains in Napa in October, and it poured all weekend. The wedding was scheduled for outside on a terrace, with flowers to go accordingly with the terrace and the outdoor setting. However, it was clear that on Sunday, the day of our wedding, that wasn’t going to be an option. The way she transformed the room we got married in, which was a last minute change, was absolutely breathtaking. I was bummed a little bit that the ceremony wasn’t outside until I saw what she did in that room and then all my concerns went away….it really was phenomenal and perfect and I have never heard so many compliments on what beautiful and amazing flowers we had. And after I saw how beautiful the room was, I wouldn’t have changed a thing, not the weather, not one thing. I would and will highly recommend Jessica and Fleurs de France to anyone who is planning any sort of special occasion, but especially a wedding. She is a master at what she does! She truly did an amazing job and we cannot thank her enough for making our special day even more beautiful!” Jennifer

This table was created for a photo shoot set at a gorgeous property with a breathtaking view over the Sonoma valley.

None of this would have been possible without the help of all of our friends at La Tavola Linens, Classic Party Rentals & MIchelle Walker to capture the day. Thank you all – it was fun!

Auberge du Soleil Wedding from Jennifer Kloss + Suzy Berberian Weddings & Events

April 5, 2012

I have found the cure to the Monday Morning Blues, and it is this Napa Valley wedding. With a bride so easy going and beautiful, it was destined to be a knockout event, but when she hired Suzy Berberian Weddings & Events to plan it, Fleurs de France to shower the day with flowers, and Jennifer Kloss Photography to capture every moment, it turned into a heart-fluttering, can’t catch my breath, stunning soiree. I’m definitely nixing the morning cup ‘a joe in favor of the gallery!

In the early days of getting to know Matt he captured my heart with his charm, his sincerity and his love of life. And so, when he asked me to be his wife, I could not have been happier to say yes. Despite the hours I spent planning and day dreaming about our wedding, nothing could have prepared me for the sheer joy, excitement and profound love I felt as I married the love of my life.

Our wedding was not what I would have considered a typical affair but neither was our relationship so it suited. From our flat in London, we chose Napa, without ever visiting, because the idea of a relaxed, beautiful atmosphere with bright blue skies, warm sunshine and an abundence of red wine really resonated with us. And Auberge du Soleil was perfect! It was intimate, warm and elegant.

We hosted 50 of our nearest and dearest for a three day wedding celebration including a relaxing pizza party and a not-too-early brunch. We really wanted our guests, who had travelled from all corners of the world, to enjoy their time, get to know one another and of course, spend time with us!

But hands down my most favourite moment was marrying Matt. Walking down the aisle and seeing his handsome smile took my breath away and I literally could not contain my excitement throughout the ceremony. I simply could not wait to say “I do”. But before we said our vows, our officiant read aloud stories that Matt and I had written for one another. Initially I was hesitant to include such a personal element however they were fantastic – they were so full of love, our personalities and so much humor! This bride did not cry during her wedding but she certainly did laugh!

Then there were our vows, words we said to commit ourselves to one another. And we were married! Ahhh bliss!

Our wedding was a perfect day. I adored every moment of it and would not have changed one element. From food to flowers, ambiance to music it was absolutely what I had hoped for.
