Lavish & Luxe California Winery Wedding

Hayley Paige is having a moment, no? From her new TV spot and her gowns popping up in so many real weddings and social media feeds, we’re loving all the modern, boho, romantic wedding inspiration. Today’s real bride, a fashion professional, was ahead of the curve, jumping on the Hayley Paige trend early for her lavish and luxe California winery wedding.

We understand how this gorgeous, embellished gown won Stephanie’s heart. With her favorite color as (surprise!) pink, this dress had an understated blush hue and so much lighthearted drama for a fashionista bride. With illusion panels and 3D embellishments, this Hayley Paige wonder is so modern and whimsical.

And whimsy couldn’t be more perfect for a Disney loving bride! The couple filled their wedding with little hints of Disney inspiration, from special songs to a Mickey embellished jacket, the whole scene is enchanting. The tall tiered cake, with a bit of blush and gold finished off the glittering winery wedding ever-so-sweetly.

Our Love Story

Ever heard of a “meet cute”? That’s how I would describe how Charles and I met. We were standing in the security line at the San Diego airport when a TSA agent looked at his ticket and told him his flight had been delayed 3 hours. I overheard, and said, “If I was you, I’d head to the bar.” We both went through security and went our separate ways…or so we thought. My flight ended up being delayed by an hour as well, so I went to the bar. Charles pulled up a chair next to me at the bar and the rest is history.

Charles proposed to me at my favorite place in the world, the Hotel Del Coronado! I was in San Diego by myself for the weekend visiting friends, and they suggested we head to the Del for a cocktail to celebrate my first time being back since moving.

Once we got to the Del, we grabbed a drink (common theme here, obviously) and walked down to the beach to see the sandcastles. As we got to the beach, I heard Ed Sheeran playing, and someone called my name. I turned around and there was Charles. He had flown in to surprise me and planned the entire Del outing.

He got down on one knee in front of my best friends, and proposed. It was magical. Afterwards, we popped champagne on the beach and all celebrated. One of the best days of my life!

The Dress & Attire

Because I work in the fashion industry, the dress was one of the most important parts of my wedding. We searched high and low, traveling the country to find the perfect gown. I ended up with Hayley Paige by accident – but so glad I did. The dress was perfect!

As pink is my favorite color, I knew that I wanted to incorporate that somehow into my gown. I ended up picking a dress that was a pale shade of pink with just the right amount of glamor. Wish I could wear that dress every day!

My husband and groomsmen wore grey as well as my bridesmaids. I thought that color really complimented my dress.

The Venue

My vision was always to marry at a vineyard as my husband is a Sommelier. I loved our venue as we could get married and have dinner and dancing outside, but then have an after party in a barrel room.

We mixed different shades of pink with gold and greenery. I think it turned out really well!

My style has always been glamour meets romantic. I feel that the venue, colors, and details really lent itself to that feel.

The Details

My favorite personal details involved Disney. I am a huge Disneyland fan, and one of the most fun parts of visiting the park is finding what they call “hidden Mickeys.” We had hidden Mickeys throughout the wedding, including on some of the programs, menu cards, guest book, cocktail signs, etc. I even put on a leather jacket during dinner that had my new last name with Mickey ears incorporated on it!

Disney also has these things called “Easter eggs”,  something Disney showing up where you wouldn’t expect it. My bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “Someday My Prince Will Come”, my flower girl wore Beauty and the Beast shoes, we also had Beauty and the Beast Snapchat filter. Lots of great details!

Another special detail was my husband’s grandmother, who is Japanese, wore her kimono for the ceremony.

Favorite Moments

So many favorite parts, but probably the best was watching my friends and family have an amazing time dancing. Greatest dance party ever! My best friends broke it down on the dance floor, doing their choreographed dance to Lady Gaga “Bad Romance”. So much fun!

The most important thing for us was that our friends and family had a great time. Therefore an open bar and a great DJ was key.

If I could go back, I would choose to do a wedding video. The day went by so quickly, and I hardly remember it. A video would be something I could go back and watch over and over again.
