Oh to have a backyard this gorgeous. I'm convinced this particular spot was made just for hosting weddings. Set against an oak-filled estate, with the most elegant, romantic details and florals crafted by Florabella, this day is a sea of beauty. And with Sylvie Gil's images in tow, the proof is in the pudding. Carve out some time for this pretty gallery. You won't regret it.
From the photographer... Hosted at the bride’s grandparent’s private estate in Woodside, California, Jessica and Michael’s wedding was an elegant outdoor affair. Jessica wore a modern Vera Wang gown with a classic veil, and her bridesmaids each selected a floor-length champagne gown of their choosing to make for a cohesive but unique look. The couple exchanged handwritten vows under the oak trees in the garden where the bride spent time during her childhood, and notes of Spanish guitar accompanied the affair. After cocktail hour on the lawn, complete with signature His & Her cocktails, dinner was served in a clear top tent, allowing guests a view of the towering redwoods overhead and the starry night sky beyond. We used a lovely sea glass palette of pale blues and greens with slate grey accents to create an elegant but understated ambiance as guests dined on lamb and salmon and drank a selection of wines from the bride’s family’s winery. A custom floral chandelier acted as the focal point of the decor atop the dance floor, where guests danced late into the evening. Finally, to conclude the festivities, guests bid the newlyweds farewell with festive sparkler departure as they were whisked away to start their new life as husband and wife.
