Wedding Inspiration: Wine Country Nuptials at Livermore's Wente Vineyards

By

After getting engaged at Disneyland, Brianna and Christian Leano were seeking a sense of magic for their wedding day.

The vision: timeless, simple, elegant. The venue: The scenic vineyards of Wente in Livermore.


The barn was decorated with wine barrels and warm wood details with a provincial touch; for a hint of glam, Brianna added lanterns, copious amounts of greenery, and candles. She made a no-fuss decision on florals—she simply wanted blooms that would match the venue and decor. Tea roses and eucalyptus garnished the bouquets, curtains at the altar, welcome sign, tables, and cake.

The bred dressed in a low-back lace frock with pearls, a flowing lace train, and long veil; her bridesmaids donned blush silk floor-length gowns, while the groomsmen wore grey with matching rose-toned ties. In a similar palette, the groom donned a light blue suit with grey undertones, along with a matching pink tie and chestnut shoes.

For the ceremony, the sounds of acoustic guitar floated through the winery with "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri taking over as she walked down the aisle. The tables turned for the reception though when Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" came on. Guests hit the dance floor, and the vino flowed all night.
