Bridal Sign Up

Natalie Grof & Joshua Weiner

June 25, 2011 | Beaulieu Garden, Rutherford

Jacquard ribbons encircled the bride’s Vera Wang gown from the designer’s L.A. boutique.

Paula LeDuc Fine Catering served a savory lemon chive madeleine with a sip of spring pea soup.

A maze of roses led to the ceremony in the sunken garden, where giant tree peonies from China embellished the chuppah.

Inspired by antique French apothecary labels, the invitations were co-designed by the bride.

The Fleur de Lisa-designed cake had layers of chocolate raspberry and lemon poppy seed.

Antique French linen runners along with etched glasses and urns holding orchids and succulents decorated the tables.

The Couple
Grof co-founded Junk Food Clothing in L.A., and Bay Area native Weiner is the VP of merchandising at Lucky Brand Jeans. Fittingly, a fashion project brought the stylish couple together.

The Venue
The manicured property lent a serene feel to the day.

The Details
“The wedding had a French influence with a fresh California look,” says planner Kristi Amoroso. The bride carried a verdant bouquet of succulents, orchids and roses by Kathleen Deery Design.

The Party
A trellis paired with rustic furnishings gave the dinner the ambience of an elegant picnic.
