Romantic Kiss Under the Arbor | Rhee Bevere Photography and Caitlin Arnold Weddings | Rustic Elegance for a Vineyard Wedding at The Vintage Estate


Myles and John’s winery wedding at The Vintage Estate was the epitome of rustic elegance! Planner and Designer Caitlin Arnold Events helped these two reconcile their love for fall colors and modern decor for their May wedding at such a classic venue. Spring meant that the arbor where they exchanged vows was full of lush green leaves, but Sweetness and Light Floral Design worked with flowers in rich shades of burnt orange and creamy ivory to capture the harvest palette that they had in mind.

Cailtin encouraged this lovely couple to get creative with their reception decor, incorporating a mix of large rounds and farm tables for guest seating. She paired the bright print of Tangier Pumpkin runners with rubbed bronze lanterns and cheerful window box centerpieces in harvest gold and burnt orange. The Dupioni silk texture of Faux de Soie Valencia was a perfect fit for a winery wedding on round tables set with cane back chairs, with Safi Pumpkin on accent tables. The pop of orange and tan stripes over white added the modern touch they were looking for, picked up in the simple geometric lines on their wedding cake.

Our many, many thanks to the wonderful Rhee Bevere Photography for sharing this wedding with us!

Although our linens have graced tables around the world, nothing captivates us quite like a wedding in the Napa Valley. This chic neutral wine country wedding beautifully captures the aesthetic of Sonoma, with a romantic taupe and ivory palette complemented by hints of fresh green.

The European sophistication of Ramekins in the heart of Sonoma made the perfect backdrop for this international couple’s wedding day. The courtyard made an inviting ceremony space, with rustic wood chairs facing the venue’s antique fountain, limestone walls draped with ivy just beginning to turn brilliant shades to herald the coming of fall. The natural hues of the venue inspired a warm palette of taupe and ivory, from the bride’s sleek column dress to our checked tone on tone Network Ivory linens in the graceful ballroom.

The graceful grounds of Chateau St. Jean Winery in Sonoma inspired the chic French theme behind each detail of Kaley and Michael’s elegant wedding day. The lush green lawns and hedges made for a gorgeous splash of color against the warm stone walls of the chateau – to complement the colors of the landscape, they selected a natural palette of blush and neutral colors. Cocktail tables draped in our Ankara Blush linens dotted the lawn, topped with arrangements of cafe au lait dahlias and ivory roses.

The reception carried the soft colors on to the lawns surrounding the vineyards, with Linea Bone linens on guest tables. Gold edged chargers and metallic table numbers added a hint of glamour to the relaxed elegance of the tables.


See the rest on Wedding Chicks!

Napa Valley Lodge | Visit Temecula

It surprises a lot of people that Napa Valley Linens is located in Emeryville and not in Napa. To be frank, that was never the plan.

In 2009, my husband and I were looking for a piece of property that would be an anchor for us, our children, as well as their children. We were both rootless and we needed a place that would nurture us. Our house in Lafayette, although lovely, was missing that critical element.

After countless trips to wine country, our real estate agent told us to pick the neighborhood where we wanted to live. So we did. We drove him to our ideal street.  Our agent promised to write everyone on the street and ask if anyone wanted to sell. Months went by and we heard nothing. Then one day our agent called and told us he’d received a letter from an older couple who’d lived on the street for fifty-three years. Were we interested in taking a look? You bet we were! I instructed my husband on the drive over not to act excited if this was really “the one”.  I didn’t want to diminish our negotiating position. He just shook his head and rolled his eyes.

When we arrived at the property, I was crestfallen. It was not what I hoped for or imagined. There sat a little 1950’s ranch house that had been expanded over the years with nothing more than a bit of ingenuity and some trips to Home Depot. I couldn’t see the back of the property for old equipment and broken down cars. But as I walked through the grassy field, a quarter horse approached me and nuzzled the back of my neck. At that very moment, I knew I was home. “This is it”, I said, in front of my husband and the real estate agent. So much for playing it cool.

The plan was to sell the house in Lafayette, and launch our business from Napa. But first we had to scrape all the shacks off the Sonoma property and bring the house up to modern standards. We cleared the property of debris, gutted the interior of the little ranch house, and by the time we finished, the housing market had collapsed and we had two properties and a growing business.

Like many entrepreneurs, I started my business from home and within a year of stuffing linens in every imaginable space, I needed a warehouse. So Napa Valley Linens became Napa Valley Linens of Concord and then it became Napa Valley Linens of Emeryville. Emeryville ended up being the perfect location for us because of its strategic location in the Bay area.

Over the years, we have debated whether to change our name, but by now we have morphed into our name. It’s who we are. It’s synonymous with our relaxed and elegant style. Our linens are not fussy, but they are beautiful, just like wine country.

And our house, well, it’s not fancy, just a tiny little fifties ranch house that sits on eight acres of pure heaven. It’s a blessing. A place that has the ability to restore you, revitalize you, calm you down, heal your hurts, and fix whatever’s broken in you. That part of the plan worked out perfectly.

Participating in an ISES showcase event is always a pleasure – it gives us a change to spend time with some of the wedding and special event industry’s most talented and dedicated professionals! Wedding and event pros are some of the most social, talented, and innovative folks that we have had the pleasure of meeting, and something new and unique is always the result when we get together. Today’s ISES Napa-Sonoma Showcase is no exception! Many thanks to Gina Petersen Photography for sharing these photos with us!

These events are always incredibly collaborative, and give us a chance to try fresh ideas that we’d love to share with our clients. Encore Events Rentals was behind the styling for this event, inspired by the rustic industrial vibe of a new wine country venue, The Barlow in Sebastopol. The vaulted ceilings, concrete floor, and wooden interiors didn’t call for anything fussy or traditionally feminine, and we loved the look that Encore put together with wooden farm tables, metal chairs, and some of our bold, patterned linens! The combination of Ankara Metal, Niya Black and Ivory, and Houndstooth Runners looked perfect in the modern, industrial space, complemented by black goblets and pierced metal candle holders for dramatic tabletop decor. Aimee Lomeli Designs created low floral arrangements in soft yellow and dusty green – coxcomb and fiddlehead ferns added modern elements to the floral design that tied them in beautifully with the table decor! In the courtyard outside, cocktail tables set with Faux de Soie Citron linens held rustic metal lanterns and succulent arrangements, perfect for guests enjoying the food truck and local wineries!
