A Bright, Blue and Gold Wedding at Viansa in Sonoma, California

With the help of their designer, Nancy Liu Chin, Bart Gromada (40 and a trader) and Ozzie Meza (35 and an event producer and floral designer) settled

With the help of their designer, Nancy Liu Chin, Bart Gromada (40 and a trader) and Ozzie Meza (35 and an event producer and floral designer) settled on a color scheme of navy and gold—the perfect representation of their rustic-meets-modern style with a chic masculine edge. To make sure their "live, love, laugh" theme didn't feel superficial, Chin asked Ozzie and Bart to elaborate on what that saying meant for them. She asked them the following questions: "How do you live?" "What do you love?" and "What makes you laugh?" Chin then worked their answers into the wedding day decor. The result was personal and cohesive, and even inspired a few standout details, like the life-size poster of Beyonce, whom they both love. "I told Ozzie and Bart that if they want to do a concept, they have to do it well—and they definitely took that to heart," Chin says. "Bart is the to-the-point kind of guy, and I'm all about over-the-top," Ozzie says. "We had to 'manly' glam it up. It was the perfect mix of both our worlds."

"There had to be a bit of shine in everything we did," Ozzie says. Gilded details included sequined table runners and bold, fabric-wrapped tables during the couple's cocktail hour.
Since Ozzie loves glam and Bart likes neutrals, the couple found ways to use both aesthetics: Gold tableware contrasted nicely with organic wooden farm tables and earthy taupe napkins, while navy sequined linens added glitz to the alfresco space.
Instead of numbers, Ozzie and Bart gave their tables airport codes, like SFO for San Francisco and ORD for Chicago's O'Hare. Ozzie explains that Bart has a "crazy knowledge of airport codes" and loves all things aviation.
