There is only one word for this next stylish soiree: Stunning. First of all the Hearst Castle is one of the most beautiful venues in California and Table4 Weddings has truly captured my heart with these flawless images. The impeccable taste of the bride and groom is clearly seen throughout the day – from the beautiful floral arrangements by Fantasy Floral Design right down to the adorable bow tie on their pretty pooch. It’s clear that this couple thought out every single detail, including the bridesmaid’s shoes (score!)! For more jaw dropping images, check out the full gallery here.
From Table4 Weddings…Drawing inspiration from the Castle’s existing architecture and decor, Vu and Linda designed their wedding alongside Orange County planner Michelle Groom of Mele Amore Events. Tying together soft hues of gold, ivory and peach, the various international elements flowed together seamlessly. As guests arrived at Hearst in the afternoon, they were welcomed by a tour of the castle, ending at Castle Terrace C. The ceremony was to take place overlooking the San Simeon Coast. Linda, dressed in Vera Wang, and Vu, dressed in a custom D&G tuxedo met in tears at Hearst’s famous Neptune Pool for their first look. Linda’s bouquet of fresh roses, gardenias and vintage broaches perfectly complemented the centerpieces also designed by Fantasy Floral.
After the ceremony, guests indulged on tray passed hors d’oeuvres and were served single vineyard Champagne at the Neptune Pool as the sun set. Bells chimed, inviting guests to the main terrace where dinner under the stars waited. Handmade Swarovski napkin rings, gold rimmed glasses, and an immaculate table setting instantly set the tone for an evening of fine dining. A twelve piece band escorted guests to their places to the tunes of classic Sinatra on a stage backed by two hundred hand crafted flowers made with paper imported from France. The 12 course dinner had influences from several countries, with the signature dish served in young coconuts branded with Linda & Vu’s signature logo. As the night settled in, Hearst castle was left illuminated only by moonlight and the candlelit orbs that glowed each guest’s name; and only given life by the spirited crowd who had come from all over the world to dance and celebrate under the perfect California stars.
