Calistoga Ranch – Yijing and Nils
A Wedding at Calistoga Ranch
[NOT FINAL TEXT] From the hand sewn lace that the bride spent months creating to the bellydancing and aerialist performances to the bright colors, rich textures and vibrant florals – every detail was captured first in the imagination of our beautiful Egyptian bride, Muna to her Italian groom, John. This playful, artistic couple was great fun to work with from their love of art to music, every detail was curated carefully. The full hour-long ceremony was greeted by seven orchestral pieces and specific vocal performances. As the regal ceremony concluded, guests were invited to nosh on ethnic inspired canapes and cocktails while watching aerialist perform at sunset. It wasn’t until guests entered the tented dining space that guests realized what was in store for them in the way of celebration. With the groom entering into the dining space dressed as a sultan and the bride and her bellydancing troupe performing a custom choreographed dance (some performers danced with fire) in celebration of the day. The spectacular soiree went into the evening with a 10 piece dance band and every guests hitting the dance floor until the very last minute of the evening. It was a night of artistic expression, song, dance and a whole lot of love!
