A Vineyard Wedding with a Mix of Modern and Vintage Accents at Chateau Margene in Creston, California

Vintage decor accented with modern flair created a dynamic contrast at this outdoor vineyard wedding, softened by a neutral color palette with wooden detail for the perfect balance. “When we saw this winery, we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding,” Naomi Szto-Smith (33 and an architect) says of her marriage to Nathan Smith (29 and an architect). “It had this amazing grand tree for our ceremony, large open space for our reception and really good wine.” The couple had their wedding at Chateau Margene in Creston, California, where they were married underneath a large oak tree in front of the estate on the property, captured on camera by Megan Tsang Studio. Naomi held a lush bouquet arranged by April Flowers that overflowed with peonies, roses and dahlias mixed with hanging greenery. Long wooden dining tables were decorated with similar high and low arrangements at the reception, positioned underneath lights that started to twinkle as the day turned to night, planned by the help of A Perfect Day Wedding & Event Design. One of our favorite details was the rustic display table—with home-brewed beers and jarred jams for guests to take home—decorated with small vintage clocks and topped with elegant floral touches. “We love to give people gifts and enjoy the act of making things for others,” Naomi says. “As favors, we made blackberry and strawberry jam, which was an old family recipe from Nathan's grandma. We also gave out home-brewed beer with styles and names stemming from our New York beginnings, from 112th Street IPA to Brooklyn Berliner Weisse.”
