See more of this sweet vineyard wedding over here on POPSUGAR.
We loved everything about Brooke and David and their fall wedding at Scribe Winery. When we talked about what they really hoped the wedding day would be like, they mentioned repeatedly how excited they were about hearing the band, The Defibulators, play and sharing that with everyone at the wedding. (David works at iTunes and Brooke has a jewelry design company, Mason Stanley Jewelry, along with her friend Jess—they’ve got great taste in spades). So we did something pretty unusual: we planned for everyone to be 100% free and off-the-hook during their extended (90 minute long!) cocktail hour. There were lawn games and blankets on the hillside and plenty of space and time for everyone to just hang out. I have to think this would’ve been a great wedding to be a guest at!
All family photos and portraits were made before the ceremony, except for just a few portraits of the couple right as the sun set. The bride even made her bridal portraits a few weeks before the wedding. The real pay off of planning the day the way they did was that they had both great photos and so much time to really enjoy the company of their friends and families. We see so many weddings and I have to tell you having time with your guests is a real and rare luxury. It doesn’t happen by accident.

We’re so excited to be able to share Molly Sims & Scott Stuber’s wedding photos with our readers. You may have seen a few photos in People Magazine a while back, but here are lots more from the whole weekend celebration. I just adore Molly and Scott (and baby Brooks and the doggies!), and am so happy for them. Molly was the best bride! Even though she’s a supermodel and has cameras on her all the time, she has the perfect sense of balance between camera un-awareness and a readiness to get the few posed photos she and I wanted. She was easy, happy, and “in the moment.” We’ve talked about how fast it all goes by, so that’s really important!
Although I think her intangibles (like her super happy, super easy-going attitude!) are the most achievable (and most affordable!) ideas to steal for your own wedding, I think you’ll love Molly’s style. Her dress by Marchesa was perfect for her, as were the bridesmaids’ custom-designed Elizabeth Kennedy gowns. We love the whimsical signs, florals and decor (note the Moroccan wedding rug!), and the sweet vintage touches that celebrity wedding planners Stefanie Cove & Yifat Oren helped design and produce for Molly and Scott’s wedding at a private estate in Calistoga.

P.S. ELEW was the coolest! Molly met him at a DKNY show and knew right away that she wanted him to play at her wedding and told him as much (even though she didn’t even have the guy, yet!).
