Wedding Wednesday: Eve & David

3/29/2015  |  Leoness Cellars

The inspiration was rustic chic. Even and David knew they wanted to have the wedding at a winery with a beautiful outdoor setting for the ceremony. For them, Leoness was the perfect location. It's not too far from Los Angeles (where we live) and it's perched on top of a hill overlooking vineyards and sprawling mountains. The ceremony was out on the lawn followed by cocktail hour. Guests then walked through the vineyard to the massive barrel room, where the reception took place. David and Eve are young at heart so it was important for them to let their playful personalities shine through during the wedding. The couple have a love of pop culture and 80's memorabilia so in lieu of traditional seating cards, they had luggage tags with images from their favorite 80's movies and television shows. For their guest sign-in book they used "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein (a childhood favorite of theirs) and asked guests to sign their favorite page. The invitation was a cootie catcher (aka fortune teller, if you're from the east coast) that guests unfolded to reveal the wedding details. The bridesmaids chose their own dresses, shoes, jewelery and hairstyles - the bride's only stipulation was to wear a black dress that they feel sexy and comfortable in. The groomsmen wore black tuxes with black & white checkered vans sneakers. Even and David don't like to do things traditionally so instead of a regular wedding cake they opted to get cakes from their favorite bakery down the street from our house, Alcove Cafe & Bakery. They offered guests "David's favorite" (toffee cheesecake), "Eve's favorite" (chocolate peanut butter fudge) and "the compromise" (blondie).
