In the Press: Kim’s Bachelorette Party at Viansa Sonoma

fluttermagazine-issue11-cover-web-amandawei

We never pass up a chance to get creative with Sylvie Gil and the Flutter Magazine team! Jesse jumped at the chance to head to Napa, along with Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, Kathleen Deery Design, and Sylvie to create an incredible Tuscan-inspired bachelorette bash like no other for Kim Wiseley, set at Paula LeDuc’s newest exclusive venue, Viansa Sonoma.

We created a fall-hued table that was every bit as indulgent as the pairing menu. Instead of the dining room, the table was set al fresco, with the building’s rustic shutters and sprawling ivy in the background. Stoneware chargers were set on warm woven linens, then topped with terracotta-hued napkins and die cut place cards shaped like grape leaves. Organic materials, like ceramic, wood, and marble, let the delicious food and soft florals really shine.

Speaking of food, the offerings were absolutely mouthwatering. Cocktails combined sparkling wine with pineapple syrup, then the girls dined on an elegantly casual menu of parmesan cones filled with Mt. Tam cheese and apricot jam, duck confit and roasted corn fritters, oven-roasted B.L.T. salad with pork belly and grilled romaine lettuce, and almond torte with figs and Grand Marnier sabayon — each expertly paired with Viansa Sonoma wines, of course!

If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it will be when you’re done taking a look at the feature, in the latest issue of Flutter!

Love in Color: Our 2016 Workshop in Burgundy Featured in Flutter Magazine

Flutter Magazine - Issue 10 - Sylvie Gil.pdf-1

Workshops and styled shoots are a way for us to flex our creative muscles, to explore new ideas and collaborate with exciting vendors and industry professionals. They’re a joy to be a part of no matter the setting, but when a workshop takes us to a chateau in France? That takes the cake.

Jesse Tombs headed to Chateau de Varennes in Burgundy (one of the top 10 wedding venues in the world!) alongside Sylvie Gil, Yonder Design and Holly Flora, and let the breathtaking venue inspire the fashion-forward shoot, with luxe, fresh details, juicy colors, and couture styling that seemed to be straight Paris. We’re so thrilled to share that the shoot was featured in Flutter Magazine! Peruse the images below and immerse yourself in the elegant drama and one of the most stunning backdrops we’ve had the pleasure of working in, and see even more of the workshop on Sylvie’s blog!
