Some people don’t know that scattered around the country are little groups of wedding vendors that, when brought together to work on the same celebration, magic happens. The kind of magic that can only occur when you have a perfect combination of artistry, thoughtfulness and a total passion for design. True love doesn’t hurt either. As is the case with this next beauty. Photographed to heartbreaking perfection by Aaron Delesie, coordination + design by XOXO Bride, with florals + design by Mindy Rice.

From XOXO Bride…We are excited to share Paul and Cameron’s Ojai Valley Inn & Spa wedding. Their understated theme had a subtle, Hamptons countryside feel with shine and polishes everywhere. Cameron asked for an Ina Garten (The Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa) feeling to her wedding. Being the huge food geek that I am, I instantly responded. Mindy Rice couldn’t have been a more perfect fit to give Cameron and Paul the feeling they wanted for their wedding. Upscale, organic, garden florals were perfectly streamlined throughout the arrangements, bouquets and even the dessert table. We used her lace runners over La Tavola “Dupionique” linens (hand-sewn by Mindy of course), which really pulled the theme together beautifully.
