When I was planning my own wedding, which feels like decades ago (and man oh man would I love to have a re-do), I had a clear vision of what I wanted. A traditional Boston wedding, with modern touches and simple but chic color palette. But had I taken one look at today’s featured wedding that Alexandra Kolendrianos designed and Megan Sorel photographed, I might have jumped ship and done something just like this. Total romance, total glam.

This was one of the romantic weddings that I have ever produced and witnessed!  Not only was the planning a dream with Megan and Aaron, but the finished product came to life so beautifully.  It was an amazing team of professionals that put their heart and soul into the Bride and Groom’s special day, and it truly was a fairy tale for the couple.

It was a destination summer wedding at a Private Estate in Montecito, CA.  I took them to the estate about 8 months before and the moment they walked on the grounds, they knew this was the spot for their wedding.  I describe their wedding as Vintage Romance. The color palette for their day was a mix of whites, ivories and hints of purple.  The decor was a combination of vintage and shabby chic.  Silver, crystal and mirrored floral containers glistened by the candle light and white chabby chic lounge vingettes were tucked throughout the reception and hidden in the gardens.

Crystal chandelliers hung in the reception in different sizes and seemed to float with the lounges in the gardens.  The ceiling fabric in the reception was softly backlit with a hint of purple. I could go on and on describing each detail, but I think that the pictures speak for themselves.  Megan Sorel Photography captured the true essence of the romance and feeling of the day!
