Center of Effort Estate wedding in Edna Valley

Elizabeth and River’s Center of Effort estate wedding in early February was the venue’s first event, and what a success it was! The unseasonably warm weather, stunning Edna Valley views at the ceremony, and intimate dinner party vibes made an exceptional inaugural wedding celebration at the estate.

The couple exchanged vows against the backdrop of the Santa Lucia Mountains in Edna Valley, followed by cocktail hour in the front entry of the estate house. Guests returned to the back lawn overlooking the mountains for the alfresco dinner reception. Liz and River didn’t want a raging dance floor for their big day, so they instead opted for an elevated dinner party with wine pairings and several delicious courses served by Field To Table.

We’re hoping to return to this stunning venue many times as it hosts more weddings! Many thanks to Vanessa Noel Events and Noonan’s Wine Country Designs for curating such a stunning day for this lovely couple.
