We just got pictures in from Shannon and Alex’s wedding at Nicholson Ranch Winery and, boy, are they gorgeous!  Allison Stahl caught plenty of pictures of this glowing couple and their simple, elegant affair.  Shannon and Alex got married next to the pond at Nicholson Ranch, with sprays of flowers by Julie Stevens Design and live guitar strumming in the background.  They then led their guests down to the wine caves for an oh-so-classy cocktail hour.  Back up at the reception site, Shannon and Alex kept decorations simple and natural to avoid competing with the beauty of the surrounding countryside.  Shimmering green and eggplant linens from Wine Country Party & Events set the scene, while a delicious array of Latin foods from Wine Valley Catering was set out in stations.  Everyone enjoyed the stunning cake by Patisserie Angelica and danced late into the night to the music of Latin band Latido and a local DJ.  Shannon and Alex couldn’t have been happier at the end of the night, and all three of us at Catrina Maria Designs were so glad to be there!  Thank you Shannon and Alex for sharing your big day with us, and congratulations!Nicholson Ranch WineryThe bride and groom by the pondBridesmaid bouquet set in wheatgrassThe bride and groom with their initialsPictures from family members' weddingsSeating assignments set in a bed of peasSeafood Paella from Wine Valley CateringA centerpiece of Purple Fringed TulipsPurple and white wedding cake
