An East Coast Introduction

For those of you that don't know me yet, my name is Jenn Labinski and I am the Production Manager for the Alison Events East Coast office.  I am so excited to be blogging for AE East!  I will be posting every Friday to share all things happening on the East Coast in addition to any other fun ideas or destinations I come across. I thought the best introduction to me might be a peek into my own wedding weekend at Calistoga Ranch.  It's definitely funny that although my husband and I were both born and raised on the East Coast, we made our way west to get married! We chose Calistoga Ranch because we love the hotel itself and we knew the wine cave would be perfect for our intimate wedding weekend of 50 of our closest friends and family.  Given the limited guest list, we were able to customize our save-the-dates and invitations, which were created by the team at Chewing the Cud.  They also created the rehearsal dinner window pane for table seating and wedding programs.  The rehearsal dinner was poolside at Calistoga Ranch and the ceremony and reception took place on the lawn and in the wine cave.  Our photographer, Meredith Davenport for Christian Oth, was fabulous and easy to work with.  Below are some photos, as well as our same-day-edit, thanks to the extremely talented cinematographers at StillMotion.
