Our wedding was beyond what we had ever imagined - it was beautiful and perfect and such a fun day. I think the key to my husband and I enjoying it so much is that we didn't sweat the small stuff. I had told my florist to do bright, cheerful flowers (I wasn't very hung up on what exactly things needed to look like, or very specific about flower types) so I was beyond thrilled when I saw how creative she had gotten and how incredibly beautiful all of the floral arrangements were. Scott's Garden in Walnut Creek was the absolutely perfect setting for our intimate spring wedding of about 60 people and I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding. Everyone had fun, loved the food and ambiance, and danced the night away. I just wish I could do it all again!
Everyone we worked with at Strawberry Fields was incredible - very professional, friendly, and completely willing to do whatever it took to make us happy. We met with our DJ, Josh, a couple months before the wedding and gave him a general idea of the feel we wanted for our wedding and discussed general music tastes/ideas. He gave us great feedback on how to pick the special songs for introductions, etc and was very helpful. On the day of the wedding, Josh made sure to give us a quick run through of our pre-approved schedule and to double-check that the songs we had chosen for certain events were correct. He was INCREDIBLE and had the dance floor packed all night. He really knew how to read the crowd and everyone told us after the fact how much fun they had. He did a great mix of slow and fast songs (which we had requested) and I was beyond thrilled with his services.
I wish I could get married all over again just to carry around the most gorgeous bouquet I've ever laid eyes on again. We were truly lucky to work with Laura and her incredible staff at Poppy's and if you choose any other florist, you are crazy!!! Laura is freakishly talented and came to our first meeting with a notebook full of ideas, a laptop with a slideshow of previous events and books of former flower stylings she's done. She is beyond creative and worked so hard to make my wedding flowers turn out the way I wanted. She was incredibly friendly, professional, and very prompt at returning emails and calls. I had mentioned that I love hydrangea and tulips, but that I knew they weren't in season in June and she surprised me on the big day by slipping in a few into my bouquet as a special treat. How thoughtful and wonderful! Every single detail was well thought-out and executed and I am SO thrilled that every time I look at my photos, I get to see those gorgous flowers again. They truly made my day go from great to spectacular. Call Laura now!
We couldn't be happier with choosing Scott's for our wedding site and would highly recommend it to anyone. We worked with Adrienne, who was beyond helpful and professional. She responded to emails and calls very promptly, was always ready with lots of helpful hints and information, and made the day of our wedding run incredibly smoothly. From the very first meeting where we had a complementary lunch of possible menu choices, to the in-between meetings to brainstorm and check on progress, to the actual day of, we couldn't have asked for a better coordinator.
The actual outdoor area of Scott's is lovely and we had SO many people comment on the surroundings. The wedding took place on the upper patio under the red umbrellas, and Adrienne had placed their white "altar" so that our florist could decorate around it. We had only about sixty people attend, which was the perfect size for that area of the patio. Afterwards, we left for a quick 20 minute "photo walk" while the Scott's employees broke down the chairs and turned that area into the cocktail/hors d' ourves area. My guests said it was quick and easy and they just moved to the side to get their drinks while that was happening. The actual dining room was also the perfect size for us - we had eight tables on the floor (including the head table) and did the buffet above on the slightly raised area of the dining room. It worked out well b/c the flow of the diners was smooth and went quickly. I can't tell you how many people commented on the light canopy inside the dining area (I think I attached a picture). It really made the room feel magical and gave it a very romantic quality to the evening.
All in all, the food was fantastic, the service was top notch, and if I could do it all over again I would definitely come back to Scott's!
