It’s day four of our Destination: California Wine Country week and it’s perhaps our favorite part of our Destination: X weeks – all things inspiration! We’re visual people around here at DID, so it’s no surprise that we enjoy beautiful photos to get the creative juices flowing. Below, you’ll find a past Fashion Forward photo shoot that appeared in our magazine, as well as two separate inspirational features dedicated to vineyard and wine country weddings. Last, but certainly not least, get the inside scoop on our latest Pinterest board dedicated to all things winery wedding related!

Wine Country Wedding Inspiration from Inspired By This

Summer has arrived and it’s time for outdoor weddings – and vineyards are one of our favorite alfresco venues. Rolling green hills covered in vines just make the perfect ceremony backdrop, right? It also doesn’t hurt that with a vineyard wedding comes all of the wine. We rounded up a few of our favorite winery wedding ideas and inspiration for the newly engaged couple that has their eye on wine country for their big day!

“Wine Country Couture” Fashion Forward

The perfect pairing of rolling hills and sparkling wine serve as a stunning backdrop for our bride and groom in our Fashion Forward photo shoot “Wine Country Couture.” Burlap wrapped bouquets, mix-matched chairs and wine country-inspired stationery make for simple elegance, while the bride’s fishtail braid and lace bolero by Jenny Yoo add a touch of couture. Guests kept warm in oatmeal-colored pashminas and enjoyed ONEHOPE Wines at the “sippin’ station” before dining at a tablescape fit for a king.
