Often times I will meet with a couple who asks if it is possible to plan a gorgeous wedding in a short time frame: at Planterra the answer is of course! Although for most of our couples the planning and design process is longer, we have created weddings from inception to design to completion in 6 weeks!
For all of our clients, Planterra is the exclusive provider of catering, alcohol service, floral and décor, linens and rental items, and valet service. Also, although you may choose to secure entertainment, photography and officiants on your own, we are delighted to coordinate these services for your wedding day. This relieves many of the stresses of wedding planning and allows for our couples to focus their energies on invitations, guest lists and attire.
The fall is truly a beautiful time of year to celebrate a wedding at Planterra. From the moment guests walk into the Conservatory, they are greeted with the beauty and lushness of the space. A daylight ceremony beneath our white floral arbor is followed by cocktail hour on the terrace, a sunset dinner under the canopy of our glimmering ficus tree and dancing under the twinkle of the stars.
There are still prime Sunday dates available for the fall of 2017! At Planterra we love the feel and vibe of a Sunday wedding . . . as well as some of the unnoticed benefits of celebrating your special day on a Sunday.
Alison Laesser-Keck, friend of Planterra, amazing designer and owner of VLD Events in Santa Barbara California, cites vendor availability as one of the great benefits of a Sunday wedding. Most vendors book over a year in advance for Saturday weddings so having a wedding on a Sunday may allow for you to secure that photographer you love – especially for this fall!
Because food and beverage minimums are lower on Sundays, it also allows for couples to have a smaller, more personal wedding. Alison chose to get married on a Sunday so that she could gather her closest family and friends together for a Sunday supper. As she mentions, “it added an intimate vibe and we’ll never forget it.”
At Planterra we have crafted a signature small wedding experience for Sundays which creates a warm and inviting experience with a delightful 5-course meal and ultra-premium spirits sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.
We look forward to the opportunity to create a beautiful and memorable celebration for your family and friends.
