The Event

Justina Bridal Mixes & Mingles at Solage Calistoga to treat everyone’s eyes with pure delight on what they have in store with this season’s collection.

Mix & Mingle was held at the beautiful Solage Calistoga Resort, where they held an amazing Bridal Fashion Event in conjunction with The Grand Bevy.

Internationally recognized bridal stylist, Renee Strauss hosted the event. You may remember her from the Bravo television series Brides of Beverly Hills.

Exciting and delicious cocktails were featured by The Grand Bevy. Scrumptious bites by the resort’s Michelin Star-rated Solbar kitchen, luxurious wedding gowns by Justina McCaffrey BridalKara’s Cupcakes and Orange Crush Photography green screens.

Scene

I was absolutely taken by the simple, yet clean and modern appeal to the decor at Solage. Nestled amongst green ocean of vines we call the wine country here in California, the grounds are quiet and the guests are calm, at ease, and sitting back on the patio enjoying delectable bites & spirits at fireside. (My friend and I were so smitten on this idea that we partook in the pre-party lounging and snacking treat as well.)

Solage held the event to promote the venue for weddings and I can definitely see why!

Let there be food

Let’s just start with the Kristin, the event coordinator! She was extremely helpful and answered many questions regarding the venue’s amenities and willingness to assist with as many of your needs as possible. Solage offers Michelin Star-Rated dining and offers a vast list of vendors and coordination assistance. Solbar, the house restaurant, offered up quite the gastronomical delite with beautiful passed and stationed bites to indulge every palate. A few of the more memorable items remembered, were Fish Tacos; Corn Chowder Shooters; Falafel; and a large seafood station offering Oysters, Sashimi and Tartar Cups!

Goodies in a Glass

You can’t have a wedding or any kind of party without amazing cocktails! We sampled the concoctic geniuses of The Grand Bevy! I sampled an awesome green cocktail with cucumber, lime, Colin’s, mint and who knows what else, but it was GOOD! Very refreshing and it packed a punch. Traditional wine was also passed around and I absolutely indulged in red!

Let them eat cake

Kara’s Cupcake’s showcased AMAZING bite-size desserts, cupcakes AND weddingcakes! I had no idea she made wedding cakes! Personally, I go with my little girls all the time to her Santana Row shop for treats and never saw a cake menu- then again, I wasn’t looking for one… Justina Bridal Mixes & Mingles at Solage Calistoga

Bridal gowns in all their glory

We definitely mixed & mingled. Met many interesting individuals that were in the bridal industry and learned a little about the gowns by Justina Bridal. Towards the end of the event, the guests were indulged with champagne and a pleasant outdoor runway fashion show displaying the featured designer, Justina Bridal. Justina Bridal Mixes & Mingles at Solage Calistoga
