A Casual Vineyard Wedding at Byington Winery in Los Gatos, California

Susan Anderson (50, retired) and Avi Avivi (41, a Vice President in engineering) dated for three months before Avi found out that he was diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma, a rare and aggressive type of cancer. After a full year of treatment, Avi had started to fully recover from the disease, and as a pair the couple felt stronger than ever before. When they had reached their three-year dating mark, Avi proposed to susan on her birthday at a restaurant, and so the couple began to plan their elegant but simple wedding they hoped for. Susan and Avi booked Byington Winery in Los Gatos, California with a gorgeous backdrop of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the distance. The couple picked an interlaced heart monogram to decorate the winery with in the color palette of different hued pinks, purples and blues. From the wedding stationary to the flower arrangements and bouquets, the couple held true to their wedding day colors that flourished throughout the space. “Our main focus was to have a relaxed dinner with great wine, food and friends,” says Susan. “Our reflection as a couple were the words we spoke from the heart to each other just before our vows.”
