rn Astrid Stewart (29 and an event coordinator) wed Sean Murphy (34 and in sales) in a romantic, classic affair at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula, California. A palette of gold, blush pink and navy brought elegance to the naturally beautiful outdoor setting. “The ceremony overlooked the vineyards, and the space had columns that we draped with fabric and flowers,” Astrid says. “We used gold lanterns and large flower bouquets at the front of the aisle and flower petals down the aisle. It looked truly magical.” Astrid walked down the aisle to an original song written and performed by her cousin. After a ceremony officiated by Astrid’s father (a pastor), the newlyweds and their 200 guests walked a few paces to the open-air reception, where the dance floor stayed full. “We wanted to ensure we had enough time to dance with our guests," Astrid says. "Our band played live music for an hour, and every single person was dancing." In keeping with the romantic theme, each table was topped with gold candles, blush rose bouquets and gold-framed mirrors calligraphed with the table number. “Try to come up with compromises so your wedding reflects both of you,” Astrid says. “Don't be a bridezilla. Your wedding day is truly the best day of your life, but your marriage is forever.” —Carolyn Meers

During prep on Astrid's wedding day, bridesmaids donned custom pink T-shirt that read "Team bride."
Sean and his groomsmen wore traditional, classic black suits with shimmery gold silk ties.
A gold-framed navy sign gently instructed guests not to take photos during the ceremony.
The bride's ring bearer carried a sign that read: "Don't worry ladies, I'm still single."
"Since the dress was such a statement piece, I went simple with my accessories," Astrid  says. "I wore simple diamond studs—borrowed from my grandma—and nude open-toe heals. My hair is classic and pulled back, and my makeup was very natural."
Along the aisle at the outdoor ceremony were golden lanterns with candles, sprinkles of flower petals and gold bottles.
