We are welcoming Tuesday morning with a sea of pretty captured to sheer perfection by Desi Baytan Photography plus gorgeous design and styling by Platinum Lining Events. If this isn’t a great start to the day then I don’t know what is. And just when I thought the florals couldn’t possibly get any better, another gorgeous arrangement or lovely little boutonniere would pop into view on the screen. You are seriously in for some floral eye candy courtesy of Lauryl Lane. So hunker down and spend a little time enjoying the full wedding gallery. Your eyeballs will thank you.
From Desi Baytan Photography…Laura and David, two attorneys living in New York came to California to wed. Their venue was at the Highland Springs Resort, a natural wonder in Cherry Valley. Graced with lavender fields and olive groves and an ancient oak tree that has survived for 1100 years, it is one of the quintessential outdoor rustic and romantic wedding locations east of Los Angeles.
At this time of the season, lavender flowers were beginning to bloom. The olive grove provided an enchanting space for portraits and a cocktail area as well. The palette of soft tans, mist green, light lavender complemented perfectly to Laura’s theme. Kudos to LaDawn Williams from Platinum Lining Events, who coordinated this amazing wedding to make sure it went according to plan. She had kept a long distance connection with Laura and David to design this magical day. And to the incomparable Lauryl Lane, who designed the breathtaking botanical inspirations including a Chuppah made of birch and adorned with florals and moss. The reception tablescapes were not only accompanied with flowers but with vintage bird cages. A surprising touch. And Laura, the bride, designed all of the table numbers and place cards out of fabric and cardstock. Plus, the ingenious use of wood, moss, and other organic touches brought a natural element to the entire floral design.
