Green Barrel attended two wedding fairs on Sunday, February 12th, 2012, the Winter Wedding Soiree at Kohl Mansion in Burlingame and the Kenyon Estate Open House in Benicia.  Both fairs were a complete success, introducing local wedding vendors and brides and grooms-to-be (and of course brides maids and mothers in tow).

Kohl Mansion was blessed with a beautiful sunny day for the Winter Soiree. In fact, it was easy to forget it was winter at all when wandering around their expansive lawn and gorgeous gardens.   Green Barrel’s organic 2006 Shiraz from Mount Tehama winery was well received, especially with samplers of the delicious paella provided by La Bocca Fina.  After guests strolled through the mansion, they were collected into the main hall where vendors gave a quick presentation about each service.  What a show!  Between Anna Maria Mendieta’s soft and sweet harp and Gabriel’s Trumpets the show was quite the concert, worthy of capturing on film, hope Thomas from Thomas Hughes Films caught it!  Our favorite presentation was certainly Cynthia Glinka, founder of Dance with Glinka. She was able to get the whole crowd on their feet in her 60 seconds presentation.

Brides were entered into a raffle with a collection of great prizes including a heart shaped cake from Have Your Cake, a fresh flower bouquet from Plan Décor, and an all expensed paid trip to Fiji!

 

 

 

 

 

Later in the afternoon, North Bay brides and grooms collected at the Kenyon Estate Open House in Benicia for an elegant display of food, flowers, photography, cake and more.  The estate was gorgeously decorated, leaving brides and grooms-to-be with a vision of wedding perfection. Guests enjoyed Green Barrel’s 2006 Merlot from JT Wines, which was perfectly paired with the tri-tip sliders provided by Englund’s Café and Catering– delicious!  Another favorite was the Chinese chicken noodle salad from Elaine Bell Catering.

Sunset at the estate was stunning.  Thankfully the talented Josh Rodriguez was capturing the moment (and took the photos added to this blog post!).

And if you haven’t had enough wedding fair reviews, we will post some more photos and highlights from Green Barrel at the Fox Theatre last Sunday, February 26th, 2012.

Even though it was a big game day for the 49ers, the San Francisco Wedding Fair had a great turnout on January 22nd, 2012. The Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco hosted an elegant affair, and their staff kept everything operating smoothly.  Gorgeous gowns by Jin Wang Design on the runway, and delicious cupcakes by Sibby’s Cupcakery were paired perfectly with Green Barrel’s 2006 Meritage from JT Wines.

This was our first time as a vendor in the wedding fair scene, and we had a wonderful experience. Our impressionable, eco-friendly barrels provided a great display set up for events, and our booth was constantly busy with eager brides and grooms to be. Everyone was impressed with the featured wine, JT Wines 2006 Meritage. One of our favourite varietals, this Napa Valley Meritage is rich with flavours of plum, currant and boysenberry and finishes with hints of vanilla, tobacco, and toasty oak. An easy crowd pleaser, this wine is perfect for a wedding reception or engagement party.

We were especially impressed with the collection of vendors. We had some laughs from the Zoltar Machine, got aligned by San Francisco Family Spinal Care, and enjoyed the photographs on display by Jim Vetter Photography.  The SF Wedding Fair thought of everything. They even provided a football lounge with a big screen TV, beer and pretzels for the 49ers fans.
