There is not a single detail in this wedding that I don’t love. Like seriously love. I love the bride and her beautiful gown. I love the organic, yet painstakingly elegant design. I love the relaxed and yet timeless vibe. I love every last detail so to hear that the bride was also a huge fan of Style Me Pretty, well, this afternoon finds me a happy, happy blogger. And of course, photographer Lane Dittoe and planner Gatherings by Stacie have ensured that every last moment was orchestrated and captured to absolute perfection. I love, I love, I love.

From Gatherings by Stacie…Jillian & Edward met at college in Cambridge, England. So when Edward proposed, Jillian began planning an intimate wedding back in her hometown of Orange County, CA that would tantalize any guest local or abroad! From the moment one entered the gates of “The Folly”, an interpretation of a Folly or party structure that might be found in England, they were immediately transported to another place and time and both the bride & the groom having an appreciation of England, said yes please!
So on a Thursday in July, 35 very special guests arrived to The Folly to sip on citrus mint spritzer’s in an outer garden, witnessed the couples vows at the summer house tucked under a huge century old pepper tree and continued on throughout the evening with surprises and entertainment that could be found in the ten “room” 40-year-old garden in the classic Italian “loose” style under the stars.
Artist Vicki High painted a whimsical watercolor of the grounds of the property and we used that as an opportunity to create these very personal DIY menu cards! Additional details like vintage glass, china, silver & linens were used from the bride’s family china cabinet, even the vintage cake topper that was her grandmother & grandfathers used on their wedding day.
This was a delightful celebration for a delightful couple and another fabulous example of a boutique wedding! So then, we gave three cheers to the nuptials of Jillian & Edward as the sun set then, off to Edinborough Scotland they went to begin their new life together – The beginning.
