â€œThe recurring theme in my wedding,â€ Kassie said of her wine country nuptials to Skylar, â€œwas everything had to be custom. Everything done by hand.â€ Take, for example, the coupleâ€™s deep violet invitations, letter pressed by Elizabeth Hubbell Studio on an antique printing machine. Or the fact that the bride hand-rolled cigars and gave them to guests as favors. Each floral vesselâ€”some made ofÂ pipe fittings and scrap metalâ€”was hand-picked byÂ Kassie and event designer Dee Merz. But the piÃ¨ceÂ de rÃ©sistance of this custom fÃªte was the brideâ€™s gift to her groom. â€œI surprised him by designing a table made of the Redwood his late father, Bruce, used to build his cabin,â€ Kassie said. â€œThe table was set up as our head table andâ€”in front of all of our guestsâ€”I gave my speech, revealing to Skylar what I had done with his dad’s Redwood. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room!â€ Soak up all the beauty photographed byÂ Lisa Lefkowitz, if you can!
