You guys might want to sit down for this next wedding. It's one of those weddings that you will look at over and over and over, hardly believing that it's real. I know, it's almost cruel to share a wedding THIS gorgeous, but I honestly couldn't help myself. And when you see the photographs that Aaron Delesie snapped...you'll understand why. Aaron is not only a good friend of ours, he is also one of the most talented, thoughtful, completely lovely photographers that we know and this wedding is the epitome of his incredible style.
A few details from the FABULOUS Beth Helmstetter, the planner behind the day...
Liz and Chris are one of those super amazing couples who couldn't be better matched for each other. Between Liz's impeccable style and Chris's uncompromising taste in food and wine, their event was destined to be an amazing experience for each and every guest! They choose to marry in Los Olivos, which was the backdrop for many wine tasting weekends for the couple. Wanting a relaxed environment that was still special enough for a wedding, they opted for the Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse where we let the rustic venue do most of the talking while adding touches of formality from crystal chandeliers to Dupioni silk linens. Kate from Flower Wild brought her wild and organic look to the florals in soft shades of blush pink, peaches and ivories. In the end, the overall look was effortless, approachable and very Liz.
