A Glitzy Modern Wedding at Solage Calistoga in Calistoga, California
Kendal Georgeson (30 and a marketing brand manager) and Christopher Webber (31 and a sales manager) met during their senior year at UC Santa Barbara when one of Kendal's roommates moved out and Christopher moved in. They began dating after graduation and continued their long distance relationship for 7 years, happily agreeing they would support one another in their career goals. Their relationship remained strong and the two cherished the little time they had together on the weekends. On the night of Kendal's 29th birthday, Christopher came down to visit and proposed with an engagement ring tied to a bottle of her favorite sparkling wine! For their venue, Kendal and Christopher wanted a location that would provide them with an outdoor space to take in the beautiful scenery and indoor space to keep guests out of the cold Northern California evening. The Solage was a classic space with neutral tones that provided the perfect base for the bride and grooms modern wedding. The ceremony and reception were decorated in a combination of matte and sparkly gold decor to create dimension on the soft ivory palette. The tall ceilings were a perfect match for the gold metal manzanita tree centerpieces and fall themed accent decor. Guests were treated to an incredible four course meal along with specialty Chocolate Marquis cake and a dessert table filled with traditional Greek treats. A live band played music from the 60's-80's while friends and family danced before heading home with personalized pouch of Jordan almonds, another Greek tradition. "The almonds are meant to represent: Health, Wealth, Happiness, Prosperity and Long Life." says Kendal.
