You walk through the grass, parasol in hand, sipping a glass of champagne. In front of your eyes lay rows and rows of grapes tumbling over their vine, waiting patiently to be plucked. You find yourself between two sprawling oak trees that frame a hand-built arbor. You look up and see the love of your life looking back at you. Out of your mouth, you hear those two magic words: I Do& This has to be a dream, right? Not at all. You are wide awake, attending a wedding that seemed as if it was drawn from the images of a dream. Amidst the rollings vineyards of Santa Ynez Valley last summer, husband and wife pledged their vows to each other beneath an arbor of love and grapes at Roblar Winery. Ring girls fashioned as pixies frolicked down the aisle to grace the union with frivolity and mirth. Wine flowed freely throughout the night, while endless toasts cheered the glowing couple onward to new beginnings. Sweet Deal was an essential part of the wedding planning from start to finish. Our Special Events department designed the invitation, crafted custom cocktail lists, styled the staffs attire, and hand-made the lavender bundles that served as dinner place settings. Our wedding coordinators planned out the timing of each piece of the puzzle so when the day came, nothing was amiss. Our on-site event managers directed traffic, coordinated transportation, and attended to even the smallest of requests. Our beautiful staff members were on hand to make sure the guests (and the wine!) flowed seamlessly from the cocktail hour to the wedding aisle and into the reception. After the vows, our hostesses led the wedding guests to dine under the stars while our cocktail waitresses and bartenders made sure no ones glass ever went empty. Cigar girls set up a stogie station under the stars, where they cut and lit a wide array of smoke choices for the guests. To round out the evening of palate pleasures, our hostesses lined up the sampling glasses for a beer tasting that included a large selection of brews from around the world. Then it came time for dancing, because what is a wedding without shimmying to your favorite oldies with your dearest friends? The crowd grooved into the wee hours of the night to the beats of DJ KC from Vox DJs. As the celebrations waned, guests were treated to mini-milkshakes and hamburgers that magically disappeared as quickly as they arrived. The dream was coming to a close, but the love of husband and wife still holds strong today. Well always remember this vineyard wedding, and feel honored to have been integral in the creation of a real-life reverie for two star-crossed lovers!
