June Romance at Chateau Lill

It was the day before their one year anniversary and Ross and Linnea were preparing for their long anticipated wedding day at Chateau Lill this June 2021. In the height of the pandemic Linnea and Ross made the hard decision to postpone their 2020 wedding and chose to marry on a beach in San Francisco, with only one witness in attendance. While the beach wedding was magical in its own sense, they were so grateful that after the past year, they were able to gather loved ones to witness their marriage and celebrate all evening!

And we were simply thrilled that after working together for nearly two years they were finally able to celebrate how we had first planned! And even better the guidelines loosened right before their wedding day which allowed them to have a fully vaccinated event sans masks (well vendors still needed them but no guests!).

Linnea had an eye for design and new a classic and modern design was what inspired here. Working together, along with their team of vendors, we pulled in Linnea’s favorite color of green, romantic white blooms, PNW inspired greenery and touches to gives this classic winery wedding a modern twist. And not too forget Linnea’s own sketches could be found throughout they day; from the invite to the signature drink menu featuring their furry children!

A grand sparkler entrance into dinner was followed by a welcome from the bride and groom and incredible plated dinner.

Later the tent was filled with laughter and tears as toasts touched each guest. Cake cutting, dancing and memories to last a lifetime followed!

Shannon & Jonathan’s September Wedding at JM Cellars

As their officiant spoke to friends and family he told the story of Shannon and Jonathan’s first meeting and what brought guests to JM Cellars last September…”Shannon and Jonathan happened to meet at my wedding in Washington DC. A relationship seemed unlikely as Shannon lived in Philadelphia and Jonathan in DC. Luckily, Shannon is a pretty avid sports fan and the Phillies were visiting the Nationals a couple of weekends after, so Shannon made the trek to DC to go to the game and visit Jonathan. The following weekend, Jonathan was up in Philly. This pattern continued for almost 2 years, a lot of their life spent sitting in traffic on 95! “

A cheek squeeze, a first look and a window peeper trying to be incognito with a fake mustache gave us a good laugh!

JM Cellars set the stage for a Pacific Northwest inspired fall wedding as Shannon & Jonathan celebrated with loved ones this past September. Greenery, candlelight, and minimal floral touches were all accented with acrylic and glass signage.  Accents of taupe and navy could be found in the bridesmaid’s taupe dresses and navy suits were the perfect fit for the groomsmen & Jonathan’s Suits.

As tray passed appetizers came around and the bar opened Shannon and Jonathan were most excited about their must have Oyster Bar! Taylor Shellfish Farms Kumamoto, Shigoku & Pacific Oysters were enjoyed!

As Harold Beslkus duo played in the background Shannon & Jonathan had their first dance outside on in front of JM Cellars copper doors before friends and family were invited inside for dinner.

After finding their names on tent folded escort cards, which played double duty as place cards noting entree choices, guests found their seats among tables cover in ivory linens and topped with greenery centerpieces (round tables featured a greenery wreath / rectangle tables featured a greenery garland) and floating candles.  Place settings featured ivory napkins on top of Aria Rose Gold chargers. Two dinner menus by Paper Fling were placed tables for sharing.

Dinner began with a mixed green salad of poached pears, candied walnuts, chevre cheese and a champagne vinaigrette and Macrina artisan rolls with sweet cream butter. Entrees were split between braised boneless short ribs and northwest salmon fillets each accompanied by grilled late summer asparagus and sea salt roasted garlic mashers.

After toasts, Shannon hit the dance floor with her father and Jonathan his mother. With the dance floor open an ice cream bar (vanilla, chocolate, and Rocky Road ice cream with a topping of chocolate sauce, sprinkles, Reeses M&M’s, whipped cream and cherries) and Lowrider Baking Co cookie station (brown butter triple chocolate chunk, cookies and cream, s’mores and double chocolate peanut butter chip) opened!
