Sonoma Destination Wedding: Dinner & Concert for Candice & Chip

Sonoma Destination Wedding Weekend

Last week, I started you on the journey of Candice & Chip’s three day wedding weekend.  You saw a fun barbeque, a delightful morning ceremony & brunch which was filled with an afternoon of field games.  The rest of today’s post is about the evening activities they had planned for the guests – specifically a fun fajita dinner & concert by their very favorite musician, Bob Schneider.  A Bob concert was the place they met for their first “adult” date.  Since they had met when they were young teens and had not seen each other for more than 20 years, they met at a concert after becoming friends again.  The rest, is history.  Enjoy this amazingly bright & cheerful dinner & concert.

We utilized a combination of mustard, butter, gunmetal & onyx for the dinner tables combining 5 different cloths for the dining table.  The dinner was casual, guests could come any time they wanted to get a bite before the concert that evening.

We continued the handmade paper flowers through the entire event including the dinner & concert.  150 yards of meadow were covered in outdoor string lighting to add an ethereal effect and tie the dinner & concert areas together. In lieu of cake, which they served earlier in the day, Candice chose to serve a variety of gourmet Vosges chocolate and handmade treats.

The dinner was designed in coordinating tones of sage & coffee.  Additional color was brought in with the pillows on the couches, the fleece throws & the lighting on the dance floor.

The couple danced to the Bob Schneider song “40 Dogs” as their first dance.  Bob was amazing, accommodating, talented, professional and has an amazing voice.

Please also watch the wedding film by Lovespun Handmade Wedding Films.  It’s stunning and showcases the entire three days.
