Farm to Table Chic : Outdoor Wedding Theme for Fall Weddings

Throughout this week and next, I will be sharing with you 5 great outdoor wedding themes for fall weddings {they'd also be ideal for those planning a summer wedding}. Williams Ski and Patio has collaborated with wedding planners and photographers who have designed the most amazing outdoor wedding themes. The first theme I have for you today is a Farm to Table Chic wedding design by Nancy Liu Chin of Nancy Liu Chin Designs in Napa, CA.

When asked about her design seen here, this is what Nancy said . . .

One theme is winery or vineyard weddings. Naturally this is very popular in the Bay Area as we are 1 to 2 hours away from Napa and Sonoma. Suddenly within an hour or two, you can leave the mind boggling, congested urban traffic for wide winding roads, pastoral scenery, and lush greenery. What bride and groom wouldn't want their guests to enjoy a love and long drive into the winery countryside?
Wineries typically have such beautiful landscapes. There's also the expansive vineyards. They lend themselves to this natural and rustic feel that can go modern, glam to vintage and barn like. I think wineries are so private that guests feel like they have the whole place to themselves. In Sonoma and Napa we have such diverse wineries . . . it can be intimate outdoor ceremonies under olive groves to indoor wine cave receptions for hundreds.
In this particular scene we were going for the updated farm to table rustic. It's rustic in the sense that the table is wood and the flowers are very natural. But unlike the expected vineyard motif, there is a more modern line to this look.
I think it's informal, updated not vintage or barn yard. There is a chicness to it.
