A few words from Megan + Emily of Enjoy Events Co.:

Durham Ranch is a beautiful property in St. Helena and its clean white fences and structures are situated between the most beautiful Oak trees you will ever see. We began the design process by getting to know the ins and outs of the design in Chandler and John’s home. Chandler said she had multiple blue walls, that they love color and texture mixed with clean lines and that she loves the combination of soft and textural elements. As we got to know John, we learned of his inherent acting skills and his participation in the film community (how could we not play off of that?!).  The outcome was an intimate celebration with sophistication and eclectic charm.

We really wanted the barn to feel like a swanky restaurant and for all of their guests to feel like the party was for them, too.  The white interior of the barn allowed for diversified design choices, but with taller-than-tall ceilings the challenge of how to make the environment feel more intimate, especially with 85 guests arose.  What to do?  Hang lights at eye level down above the tables, project a larger than life film on the wall, bring in warmth with the flowers and place settings and provide a blanket for each couple to cozy up with.

Lift the hollow, in late summer early fall season, the trend of the girl will not it feel strange. With a hollow fashion sexy dress, and then with a pair of leather thick with hollow heels, that kind of powerful gas field, as you are no longer ordinary girl will have a somewhat star feel it. isabel marant
