If I had to pick a top ten for fave wedding details, lace would most definitely make the cut. From classic affairs to vintage soirees, it’s a romantic touch that works across the board. And this beauty from Closer To Love Photography, is adorned in head to toe with the loveliest of lace detailing. From the Bride’s stunning dress and the DIY doily candles to the lace-edged invites and cake dressed in sugary lace. It’s all so swoon-worthy and it’s sitting pretty right here.


From Closer To Love Photography… Today we are sending over a beautifully quaint, romantic, and vintage-inspired SoCal Wedding that we had the honor of photographing at the Twin Oaks House and Garden Estate recently. The bride and groom’s hearts are beautiful, and that beauty radiated throughout their entire Wedding Day. From their emotional vows made to one another, to the warm support of close family and friends, Sasha and Jason’s Big Day was simply perfect. Accompanied by vibrant and colorful floral displays, and unique vintage decor throughout, we believe that you will fall in love with this timeless Wedding as much as we have! We will allow Sasha to describe the inspiration behind her Wedding Day… 

From the beautiful Bride… The inspiration behind our Wedding Day first stemmed from my love of Stars Hollow, the fictional small town in the TV show “Gilmore Girls.” I wanted something with a quaint, homey feel that was more reminiscent of the northeast rather than southern CA—gardens, trees, and flowers rather than beaches and Spanish architecture. I wanted a romantic garden fairytale full of twinkle lights. I combined the garden small town idea with my love of 40s music to come up with a vintage garden wedding. I saw an idea for candleholders made of lace doilies on Pinterest and my theme of lace and doilies was born. Most of my ideas came from wedding magazines (which is how we found the venue), Pinterest, and Etsy along with suggestions from my coordinator.
