Meritage Resort and Spa - Conor and Nick

Conor and Nick wanted their dream wedding to be in wine country and dreamy is what they got! Supported by family and friends, they took time out of their incredibly busy medical careers to fly out for the weekend to tie the knot in CA. A destination wedding for them (they are from Chicago), they spent the weekend enjoying gorgeous weather, wine and food with friends and family.

Such a relaxed and informal pair, they managed to pull off a gorgeous wedding with the help of coordinator Kate Whelan and florist Flourish. The Meritage's relatively new ceremony area on a hilltop with an old gazebo was the perfect setting for this intimate ceremony with Greek traditional touches honoring Nick's heritage.

Then to a fabby party with loads of gorgeous food by the chefs at Meritage and then a really fun dance party to follow. It looked like Nick and Conor had the time of their lives surrounded by family and friends. I'm not sure the smiles ever left their faces! Congrats to Nick and Conor!

I'm so excited to see that Karyn's 50th birthday party which was held at Tante Marie's in San Francisco is being featured on the blog Hostess With The Mostess! It was such a delicious night and the perfect way to celebrate the big milestone while drinking and cooking with your closest friends. Amy Nichols Special Events did a great job with planning and Design and the florals by La Fleuriste set on old cookbooks were a great touch. Click here to see more of the fun-filled night.
