Wedding Inspiration: Romantic Vineyard Wedding at Terra Mia

There is something about a vineyard wedding that absolutely inspires us! For those of us on the Central Coast, it’s a location that is part of our daily life and drive, but rarely do we get to really play with the elements at hand. We absolutely jumped at the chance to create a style shoot with the incredibly talented Korinna Peterson of Le Festin Events at the gorgeous and up-and-coming Terra Mia Vineyard on the west side of the Paso Robles Wine Country. Thank you to Korinna’s style, and some amazing partners we created a day to pin and be inspired by!

 

Nestled onto 30 acres of rolling hills in Paso Robles, Terra Mia Vineyards offers a charming secluded setting that promises to create the most memorable visit or event. This private estate offers everything you could ever want in a Central Coast wedding venue, or a wine country vacation. This unique property has it all… It features rolling vineyards outlined with olive orchards and highlighted with majestic Oak trees, and a gorgeous path lined lake centered within the venue- creating a canvas for beautiful lighting design and stunning photos.

We love the touches of gold throughout this shoot- from the round back dining chairs, to the cake, and beading elements around the charger. This simple metal is perfectly paired with pinks and greens that are so fresh for spring!

Real Wedding: Elisa and Ryan • Santa Margarita Ranch

Elisa and Ryan’s Wedding • Santa Margarita Ranch

Elisa and Ryan were two California-bred employees of Royal Caribbean International when they met halfway around the world on February 3, 2009. Elisa, a dancer and aerialist with the cruise ship’s production met Ryan, a lighting technician for the production department in a meeting for new crew members assigned to the ship. They soon found themselves forming a close friendship and that led to love on the high seas. Three years later Ryan proposed to Elisa, and their life long adventure began!

 

Their venue selection
Elisa and Ryan may have fallen in love on the other side of the world, but, they grew up just a few hours from each other in California; Elisa hails from Santa Maria, California, and Ryan, from Dinuba, California. Both wanted a Central Coast wedding venue that was not only close to their respective hometowns, but reflected their sense of style. They chose the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, just 45 minutes north of Santa Maria, because of it’s rustic appeal and outdoors focus.

How did they make their wedding unique?
It was very important to Elisa and Ryan to create an event that highlighted their personal style, and their love for family and friends (which included their cruise ship family!). They did not want to do anything that would be an expected tradition. We loved their cocktail and popcorn hour in the garden, and that the Groom utilized his background and worked with us to design the perfect lighting scheme for their reception in the historic barn.

The Day
With rustic sophistication and  meaningful details as their style inspiration, Elisa and Ryan used the outdoor locations around the ranch and the barn to it’s full advantage. We loved their choice of the massive oak tree in the garden as their ceremony back drop. For their reception personal touches like gifts of home made soaps, and their own floral design completed their vision to a “t”.

Their advice for future couples?
“Be patient, and take it one step at a time”. Congratulations Elisa and Ryan!

Central Coast Venue Guide: What to know, what to ask

Central Coast Venue Guide

What to know, what to ask

 

One of the first and most important steps in planning any event is the selection of your venue! There are so many unique venues to choose from on the Central Coast, it’s important to take your time and ask lots of questions. Your venue is one of the most important aspects of your wedding day; it helps set the scene of your day as well as determine the flow of your event. We suggest to start your search using our Central Coast Wedding Venue Guide to get your ideas flowing, and make initial contact with the venues that catch your eye. With so many things to consider (and some you may not have thought of); we put together a list of points to ponder, and questions to ask when deciding on a venue.

Location

Is the venue close to accommodations for your family and friends? If you have a large number of guests travelling in, you’ll want to make sure there are adequate options nearby, or, plenty of transportation options such as Uber or possibly reserving a shuttle service such as SLO Safe Ride for your event and the safety of your guests.

Style

From Paso Robles to Santa Barbara, the Central Coast is wide open and varied in terrain from mountains to vineyards, cool downtown districts, and coastal areas- which makes it perfect to satisfy any wedding style or theme!

Does the venue match the style and feel you are hoping for? Wedding venues such as Greengate Ranch and Vineyard offers rustic charm with a vintage twist, while Whispering Rose Ranch in Solvang provides breathtaking views of the Santa Ynez Valley from a gorgeous working horse ranch with an air of Santa Barbara sophistication. If you are dreaming of a coastal wedding; venues such as Point 16 in Big Sur offer wide open views of the California coast line, while Avila Beach Golf Resort offers a beach front location with stunning sunsets. And of course, we have no shortage of vineyard and winery locations up and down the Central Coast!

Venue

When you’ve narrowed down your list of venues, there are a few questions to keep in mind that may save you money and hassle come event day:

How far in advance can you reserve the venue, and, does the venue offer an off-season discount? The wedding season on the Central Coast is typically late April through early November, when the weather here is best. Many venues and vendors (like Kramer Events) offer off-season discounts on venues and services if you book during November through early April.

What is included in the rental fee? Some venues offer tables, chairs, and other wedding related items and fold it into the cost of the rental; however, not all do. Make sure to get the list of what’s included to make the most of your budget and vendor needs.

Can you choose your own vendors? Another very important question! Most venues will allow outside catering, and liquor; however, there are several on the Central Coast that utilize their own in-house catering or liquor license. Often, you can still bring in outside wine, beer, or liquor, but there may be a corkage fee. Be sure to outline this clearly ahead of time with the venue’s Event Manager.

-Finally, time of year is also very important when determining a venue. While the temperature throughout much of the coastline and inland valleys of the Central Coast stay sunny and temperate throughout much of the year; our summertime and early fall temperatures in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Ynez can climb into the 90’s and higher. Does the venue have an indoor option for coverage, or, enough room for tenting should the weather call for it?

As you begin your search for the perfect Central Coast wedding venue, keep these points in mind and look for venues that will bring the vision of your perfect day to life!
