The Wine Country Wedding That Had It All

We wish we were guests at Rena and Chris' wedding, which included everything from a custom event painter to a sword yielding belly dancer. 

Rena and Chris' nuptials took place in gorgeous Wine Country, and guests were treated to quite the show. After the church ceremony, ushers passed out mini-cow bells and small packets of rice for guests to use as the newlyweds rushed back down the aisle. 

A Spanish guitarist, an event painter and custom cocktails made sure friends and family were entertained before dinner, and during the reception everyone was treated to a performance by a sword yielding belly dancer. Guests took home small tins of spices and jars of olive oil as keepsakes.
