Napa Wedding Venue: Auberge du Soleil

Ariel Yve Design now an official Little Black Book member of Style Me Pretty! 

In honor of our new Napa-Sonoma Listing, I've asked Sara, my fabulous Northern California Event Specialist to do a blog post about one of her favorite wedding venues in Napa. 

I am honored to have the opportunity to be Ariel's Northern California assistant.

Event Specialist and today's "featured blogger". Wine Country Weddings have become more and more popular. Not that this is a surprise, given how incredibly beautiful the area is and how many gorgeous venues there are. One of my absolute favorite venues, Auberge du Soleil captures the area's most majestic views, refined service, and fine wine country cuisine.

Ariel's Landscaping Challenge

Between client meetings, I enjoyed a fabulous weekend at home.
I spent Sunday afternoon in my rose garden picking dozens of blush, ivory and hot pink blooms...dreaming about the possibilities for landscaping our lower garden. Our yard is an almost fully landscaped 1/3 of an acre, complete with a huge lawn, boxwoods, roses, citrus trees and even a couple of enormous redwoods.

Friday Flowers: Baby's Breath

Yay! It's Friday and time for a new Friday Flowers post.

Couples are finally beginning to spend again, but budgets are still definitely tight. Thankfully, with an open mind and a bit of creativity, a bride-to-be can have her cake and eat it too (figuratively speaking of course).

Most of the brides that I meet with these days still have dreams of grandeur, which often include the use of tall lush topiary arrangements. As you know, these dramatic centerpieces aren't cheap.

San Francisco Bridal Shower Venue Idea

There's hardly anything more thoughtful that you can do for a bride to be than to host a beautiful (and tasteful) bridal shower.

If you're in the San Francisco area planning a bridal shower, children's party, birthday luncheon or some other party to honor a special lady in your life, you have to check out Crown and Crumpet Tea Salon. They specialize in super chic, fun and stress free tea parties for sophisticated busy women.

Check out their delightfully girly decor:

E-session- Kristen and Ivan

Here's a gorgeous engagement session shot by the uber talented Chris and Erinn Austin of White Haute Photography, of my even more gorgeous clients, Kristen and Ivan. This couple is so fun and in love. I absolutely adore these two!

Anyway, Kristen hired me for her wedding this Fall in Northern California after seeing my work at her best friend's wedding last fall in Santa Barbara.

I can't wait for this couple's big day!

Springtime in New York

Happy hump day! As promised, here are a few photos and highlights from my recent trip to NYC. I have to warn you...after seeing the following pictures you just might want to schedule a trip to the big apple next spring.

Favorite Venue
I know, when you think of New York, you think of bustling streets, busy subways and towering sky scrapers...right? Depending on where you go, it can look like this. I give you the incredible Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

Weekend Musings

Ah...I love spending lazy weekends at home. Though I absolutely adore working weddings on the weekends, but I love nothing more than to spend quality time with my hubby and puppy (he's really 4, but little enough to be a baby).

Yesterday, I did a bit of spring cleaning and Joey cleaned up our entire garden (HUGE job!). I always feel so much lighter and free to dream when my surroundings are clean and uncluttered...don't you?

Anyway, today with my new liberated perspective, I've been perusing the Internet for some design inspiration for a few of my upcoming interior design projects that I'm working on. Here are a few of my favorites via http://www.decorpad.com/:

Lace Inspiration (Back from NYC)

Yay! I'm finally back from a fabulous trip to the East Coast. I'll be sure to create a post about the highlights from my trip soon. Here are a a few hints about what I did while I was away: Cherry blossoms, calligraphy and amazing food. OK, on to today's post...
I'm always so inspired by designers and company's who are willing to think outside of the box.

I just discovered these imaginative wire lace installations created by DEMAKERSVAN (aka, Lace Fence).We've moved! Please continue being inspired at: Ariel Yve Design
