Firestone Vineyard: Danielle + Nick

Danielle and Nick are a very cool, rock n- roll couple and I had the pleasure of working with them to plan their wedding at the Firestone Vineyard in Los Olivos. Danielle Brisebois is a producer and song writer for artists such as Natasha Bedingfield, Kelly Clarkson and Donna Summer. Nick Lashley is a guitar player and producer originally from the UK who has toured, recorded and written songs with artists such as Natasha Bedingfield, Alanis Morrisette and Lisa Marie Presley.

All of the beautiful photographs were taken by my good friend and photographer Kristen Beinke and the amazing Tricia Fountaine designed the traditional, English-country decor.

I am excited to share the details of Danielle and Nick's wedding day with you.


Their ceremony was held on the vineyard terrace which has one of the most stunning views in the valley. Tricia decorated the Firestone arch with grape vines, clusters of grapes, branch roses and chiffon fabric.
This was my first time working with Lazaro Design... Tracy is an extremely creative wedding invitation designer and she designed a custom monogram for Danielle and Nick that we used throughout their event... Their escort cards were placed on the tasting room bar on wooden trays with a bed of ivory rose petals and Kermit mums... As a surprise for Nick, Danielle named the tables after guitars... The cocktail reception was held in the winery's barrel room and Bella Vista Designs placed several spot lights on the lower and upper decks to highlight the barrels.
Dinner and Dancing took place in the courtyard... Tricia created unique arrangements for each of the guest tables... She used all different silver containers, tea sets, trays and glass jars... No two tablescapes were the same and each was a work of art... Apple green satin linen and fruitwood chivari chairs added classic elegance... Alternating round and square tables finished the look.
Bella Vista Designs draped fabric and paper lanterns over the event space... Decadence Wedding Cakes created the four tier cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and delicate sugar flowers.
 Natasha Bedingfield gave a very special performance of "Put Your Arms Around Me" for the bride and groom... Rincon Catering, one of my favorite catering companies, provided rentals, lighting design, lounges and of course the delicious food.

Congratulations Danielle & Nick!
