Nestled in the tranquil embrace of the Abeja Winery, Riley and Logan’s wedding day unfolded with meticulous planning by Kylie of One Love Weddings and the enchanting floral arrangements crafted by the talented team at My Garden Overfloweth. Let’s embark on a journey through the romantic, rustic charm of their timeless, high-end country wedding, adorned with a palette of dusty light blue, ivory, and green.

Floral Elegance: My Garden Overfloweth’s Artistry

My Garden Overfloweth’s artistic touch graced the Big Barn of Abeja with an awe-inspiring floral arch. The delicate and vibrant blooms cascaded gracefully, creating a breathtaking focal point that effortlessly blended rustic charm with sheer elegance. Guests couldn’t help but marvel at the artistry that adorned this rustic venue.

Furry Friends: Phoebe, the Adorable Canine Companion

Adding an extra layer of charm to the day was the presence of Riley and Logan’s beloved dog, Phoebe. As the couple shared their first look, Phoebe, with her wagging tail and joyous demeanor, added an endearing touch to this special moment. She also played an important role in the bride’s getting-ready photos, becoming an integral part of the day’s cherished memories.

Timeless Style at Abeja Winery: Dusty Blue, Ivory, and Green

Riley and Logan’s choice of dusty light blue, ivory, and green as their signature colors was a testament to their timeless style. These hues complemented the country setting exquisitely, evoking a sense of understated luxury.  The dusty blue accents brought serenity, while ivory and green added natural beauty.

A Fiat of Memories: A Sentimental Arrival

In a heartfelt tribute to tradition, the couple arrived at their reception in the bride’s parents’ vintage Fiat. You see, this elegant car had once carried the bride’s parents on their own wedding day, infusing the occasion with a deep sense of nostalgia. It was a poignant reminder of the enduring power of love and family ties.

A Father’s Wit: A Heartwarming Speech

The highlight of the evening undoubtedly came from the bride’s father. His speech was a masterclass in humor and heartfelt sentiment. His clever anecdotes and touching stories had all 250 guests in stitches, creating an atmosphere of pure joy. The bride and groom, beaming with pride, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect tribute from a loving father.

Dance the Night Away: A Joyous Celebration at Abeja Winery

The night transformed into a lively dance party, expertly curated by Platinum DJ. The groom and his mother surprised everyone with a meticulously choreographed dance number that left the crowd cheering and applauding. Later in the evening, Riley made a dazzling outfit change into her reception dress. But before the transformation, she paid homage to her maiden name, Ranch, by making a grand entrance onto the dance floor in a Ranch bottle costume. The crowd erupted in cheers and applause, celebrating the bride’s playful spirit.

Riley and Logan’s wedding was a day filled with love, laughter, and the celebration of cherished traditions. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Abeja Winery, their special day will forever be etched in the hearts and memories of all who were fortunate enough to witness and be part of this enchanting celebration.
