When it comes to incredible wedding inspiration, Grey Likes Weddings is at the top of our list so when we were approached to provide linens for editor Summer Watkins’ wedding, we were thrilled! We’re just as happy to see her stunning wedding at Sunstone Vineyards & Winery, designed by Courtnie Purdy Fausner with gorgeous photos by Jen Huang is in the Winter Edition of Martha Stewart Weddings!

When Bride-to-be, Stylist, and Blogger Summer expressed an interest in our specialty linens for her wedding, it was clear that she had an incredible vision in mind. We loved watching that vision come together as we worked with her on linen selections – in keeping with her design for a crisp, classic wedding with preppy elements, she picked our appropriately named Summer Sugar linen! The luxuriously textured white linen was a gorgeous fit for Summer and Bryan’s chic and preppy wedding – their palette of emerald green and clean white paired beautifully with effusive coral, peach, and blush flowers by Lauryl Lane. An elegant swan motif was carried throughout their day – on their custom designed stationery designed by MaeMae & Co. and printed by Gus & Ruby Letterpress, in vintage bird shaped vessels on their dining tables, even fruit ice cubes floating in sparkling wine! The swan detailing was a perfect fit for their classic style, as well as symbolizing everlasting love. Summer even uses the swan as the signet for the Ladies’ Society of Matrimonial Finery on her blog!

Frequent NVLinens collaborator LVL Weddings & Events worked with Summer to plan each detail of the day – custom made boutonnieres with Bryan’s family crest, a ‘celebration station’ with noisemakers for guests to sound after the ceremony, even tiny bell escort cards for guests to ring when the bride and groom were announced! The wedding day wouldn’t have been complete without fabulous styling by the bride, of course! Bridesmaids picked their own blush gowns, but we have no doubt that professional stylist Summer had a hand in their wedding day looks. Her new husband looked dapper in a Hugo Boss tuxedo, while the bride herself was radiant in a custom Kirstie Kelly gown. Even her shoes were a perfect nod to their wedding day look, with chic green and white striped Badgley Mischka heels!

Modern, Colorful Wedding Table in Wedgwood Blue, Coral, and Yellow | Angie Silvy Photography | Suite Retreat - Modern Wine Country Wedding Inspiration from Napa Valley Linens

Today’s gorgeous Suite Retreat styled shoot brings the vibrant, colorful aesthetic of Palm Springs to Wine Country! Founder and CEO of Napa Valley Linens, Sharon Dexmier, was inspired by the clean lines of Palm Springs architecture coupled with the laid back elegance of Sonoma. Twin Palms proved the perfect blend of the two locations, with an airy, modern construction bordered by two enormous palm trees located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley. Sharon designed the shoot around a linen that we were just getting ready to debut, our Kate Wedgwood – the intricate ivory medallion on a soft blue field brought a fun print to the design without being fussy. Soulflower Floral Design captured the bright, Southern California hues of Palm Springs with bright coral peonies and yellow ranunculus, adding eclectic desert elements with pincushion protea and kumquat accents! Crisp while pillars and honeycomb vases kept the lines of our table decor clean and modern amongst the mix of prints and vibrant colors on the tabletop. We picked up the palette and patterns of the guest table in our cake display, with our blue on white Pippa Wedgwood print topped with a modern white wedding cake by The Whole Cake with delicately tinted ombre flowers in citrus shades of green and yellow.

The key to creating a truly stunning styled shoot lies in tying every aspect together – from the big picture down to the smallest of details. Our incredible collaborators – and our own work with textiles – allowed us to fabricate custom items to truly capture the spirit of the design that Sharon had in mind. We fabricated custom chair cushions from our geometric Pippa print, adding a wrap in the pattern to the place settings. Custom lounge pillows in our cheerful palette adorned the guests’ chairs as well as the lounge furniture set throughout the pool house. Stationers Olive-Route Design created bold escort cards, menus, and bar signs to complement our color scheme and pick up the interlocking patterns at the heart of our design. We are so grateful to photographer Angie Silvy Photography for capturing every detail of this amazing shoot!

Styling Your Wedding Cake Table | Napa Valley Linens

R – Photography: Inkspot Photography, Cake: Lettie Cakes on Paris Blush

Whether you opt for a simple, elegant cake with fresh flowers or a modern, graphic dessert, your wedding cake table is sure to be one of the focal points of your reception! Styling the wedding cake table is one of the easiest ways to bring a unique and personal touch to your wedding – we’ve paired some of our favorite cakes with just the right linens to complement them and complete the overall look. A minimalist wedding cake takes on a modern look when paired with a small geometric print, while a delicate tiered confection can take on a glam look when set on top of sparkling sequins. Combining just the right print or linen texture with your cake design can have an enormous impact on the look and feel of your reception, so read on to find out just how linens and cake can create a perfect pairing!

 

Barely There Naked Wedding Cake | Styling a Wedding Cake Table from Napa Valley LinensPhotography: Amy Anaiz Photography via Style Me Pretty

Naked cakes are still taking the wedding world by storm and this one could not be more romantic! The light crumb coat of frosting beautifully ties in with today’s rustic craze, while the peach roses and gold topper add a romantic finishing touch. The simplicity of the cake itself leaves lots of room to play with table linens when it comes to pattern and texture. The ivory and pale peach combination doesn’t call for vivid colors in the tabletop styling but an elegant neutral pattern would complement the soft colors in the cake itself. The large-scale damask print of our Brussels adds an elegant note to the unfinished cake, while the tone on tone palette complements it without pulling focus. The unabashedly romantic chiffon rosettes of our Boheme Creme Overlay tie in with the delicate florals and add beautiful texture!

Sometimes simplicity is the best way to make a statement – elegant, minimalist cakes have become a beautiful trend! Smooth fondant columns or barely swirled buttercream layers look delectable but not overwhelming, leaving a lot of options when it comes to picking linens. Make a gentle impact with a selection of simple cakes in varying sizes and heights to create visual interest, tying them together with accent details and, of course, the linen! The subtle pattern on our richly textured Bellagio Cream linen adds depth to the table while the matte sparkle of our Paris Gold sequins adds a glamorous touch while remaining understated.

 

Delicate Pastel Wedding Cake | Styling a Wedding Cake Table from Napa Valley Linens

There’s nothing like fresh flowers on a cake, and this sweet, pastel palette is perfect for a garden wedding! Our swirling Ankara print in soft Aquamarine (Sharon’s favorite color!) adds a modern vibe to a petite cake table or a grand dessert display. The large-scale pattern adds a modern flair, but the delicate color palette helps it blend with a softer garden palette. Our Peony Overlay in Blush or Ivory carries the floral theme with a beautiful, textural petal design!

Lots of couples are opting for a dessert buffet or elaborate display these days and we love the options it creates! Multiple platters and stands add a lot of different elements to a table, so it’s important to pick just the right linen to have an impact without overwhelming the table. Newport Sand has a lovely natural texture and petite polka dots to lend just a little bit of design, while our soft, distressed Brighton print adds color and pattern but is large enough to keep from looking busy with the rest of the decor.

Textural cakes will always be one of our favorites – they remain a classic for lovers of elegant wedding design. Our Summer Sugar is thick and luxurious to the touch, with a woven look that adds depth to the table while still appearing chic and crisp. The simplicity of the linen ties into the texture of the cake while carrying the minimalist vibe. A small, repeating pattern like our Marrakesh adds a gorgeous design element while the matte gold on ivory remains effortlessly chic!

 

Metallic Gold Wedding Cake | Styling a Wedding Cake Table from Napa Valley Linens

It’s no secret that we love a metallic and gold and silver look amazing on a cake! Whether your style is all out gold glam or just a hint of metallic, there’s a gorgeous way to tie that edible art into your cake table design. The bold metallic of our Cleo Gold Overlay is sure to make a statement, whether the cake atop it is romantic Art Deco or just a hint of gold leaf. If edible sequins or gold dust buttercream is your style, the vibrant hues of our Faux de Soie collection play off a dramatic cake with rich color and a luxe Dupioni silk texture!
