Not much will steal the show from a venue as magical as the one Logan and Summer chose for their ranch wedding, but I think Summer’s wedding gown does. She looked perfectly polished in a lace Inbal Dror gown and accented the ceremony and reception with loads of white florals, antique furniture, chandeliers and decor. Personal touches filled the day, including a slideshow with photos of all of the guests and a surf board guestbook. The end result? A stunning vintage winery wedding oozing classic California style.
The Ceremony We hosted our wedding outdoors with wild animals all around — horses, zebras, water buffalo, camels, mini horses, goats, llamas and more — surrounded by rows of grapevines under a big willow tree on huge winery. We had driftwood with orchids, calla lilies and moss lining the aisle along with huge long stem calla lilies wrapping around the altar and a flower girl handed people orchids as she zigzagged up the aisle. My grandma walked me down the aisle.
The Reception Our reception had a sort of magical fantasy feel, with hanging lights and chandeliers from trees. Centerpieces made of driftwood with orchids and calla lilies and moss with vintage chairs. We sat on a vintage love seat. A huge projector screen with photos of us and our guests through our childhoods as we grew up cycled through, with a photobooth for our guest, including wardrobe changes for more modern photos. Guests dined on handmade pasta made fresh along with carving and seafood stations and huge dessert buffet featuring more than 20 different kinds of candy, wedding cake and five other desserts.
Summer’s Dress Search I tried on five dresses. With one, started to tear up once it was on and knew that had to be it. And when my mom, mother-in-law and grandma saw me, everyone felt it was a one-of-a-kind special dress. Per Logan’s request, it had a low back and was form-fitting across the rear.
How Summer Felt in Her Wedding Dress Ravishing, angelic and magnetic.
Why Summer Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress I want someone to feel how special I did in it and be able to afford it. I was actually the first person in the world to purchase this dress and got to meet the designer Inbal Dror herself. I know if I have a daughter she will have a style of her own and want to experience her finding her dress like I did with my mom, mother-in-law and grandma.
