On their first International trip touring Europe they got engaged in front of the glass pyramid at the Louvre de Musse in Paris. Highlighting their love of travel they incorporated elements from around the globe. Custom engraved wood watches from San Diego, Wood cuff links with coordinates of the wedding venue and wood bow ties from the Ukraine, and marble earrings from Australia.
Having recently moved from Colorado to California most of their guests were traveling from out of state. In order to provide them with a relaxing, enjoyable and fun weekend they rented a 24,000 square foot house in wine country for their accommodations. They were able to have the rehearsal dinner there and it was the hub of family and fun.
As a wedding and special events coordinator at Wiens Family Cellars Irena relied on her personal experience and creativity to have fun with the wedding theme. Instead of choosing a color theme they opted to focus on textures like wood, copper, and marble.
Their love of travel was captured in their clear glass globe guestbook, full copper world map on the top tier of their cake, and their food! Colby spent several months in the Andalusia region of Spain and it was the inspiration for their custom menu full of incredible Spanish tapas. They also chose to spend their Honeymoon in Spain exploring Barcelona, Sevilla and Majorca.
