Christina Biagini-Kirk and Tycho Suter had beautiful visions for their wedding day on August 25th 2012. With the creative talent of Julie Atwood and Kathy Hoffman they set the stage for an exquisite destination wedding at the Atwood Ranchin Sonoma, California. Their ceremony took place on the ranch vineyard lawn overlooking the mountains in the back. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on a patio between the two vineyard houses while dinner was served in a beautifully stylized tent on the upper vineyard followed by a reception in a beautiful barn. Their guests felt welcomed, pampered, and excited to be there. Atwood Ranch ranch has so many different aspects to it, allowing guests to move from area to area or “room to room” – this created the best kind of wedding – the guests were continually treated to the next “room” just around the corner, providing that sense of excitement and energy as they moved into the next stylized area. Each area had it’s own unique design, playing off of the environment and the time of day within the celebration –  the Atwood Ranch team changed the color palette and feel of the linens, the containers presenting the flowers etc. to make each area come alive for the day. The florals were the connecting thread throughout the areas, a bright vibrant palette with orange as the dominant color in a variety of shades and types of flowers, supported by summer yellows and golds with a little hot warm pink [some of the roses were a beautiful mix of orange with hot pink edges] when the guests left the dinner tent area and walked to the barn they enjoyed the last visual treat for the evening – the barn was transformed into a richly colored and exotic feeling space -Moroccan inspired – comfy lounges of several designs, Moroccan lanterns, hurricanes and votives softly glowing throughout, bars, dessert stations, etc. – everything here made the end of the wedding celebration a night to remember… No one wanted it to end!
