The Organic, Farm-to-Table Wedding Inspo Of Your Dreams

I’m more than obsessed with this inspiration. For starters, that hair?!? Major goals. Even more-so? And those in-season blooms from The Blooming Bud? Unforgettable. Thanks to the seriously talented Savan Photography we’ve got it all waiting to peruse in The Vault!

From Savan PhotographyI wanted to design something organic, something fresh with pastel colors, lush greens, and blooming buds, all of which represents the new beginning of Spring and sweet love. Our location and setting was perfect, a community garden in San Juan Capistrano filled with planter boxes overflowing with herbs and tender vegetables sprouts and a even a small green house.

Our goal is to always be creative and to make sure that it’s always cohesive. It’s to tell the whole complete story to the smallest of details. It was very important to me that we highlight not only the unique space, but to bring the elements of the “farm to table” concept to light. So we chose to use many of the plants, herbs, flowers and fruits throughout our styling from table settings to the bouquet.

I wanted our tablescape to be simple with in-season flowers like lilacs, pink home grown roses, lemon leaves and deep purple artichoke for that pop of color. Going with the timeless, fresh, and organic feel we used blush ceramic plates and white goblets to round out our table setting. For that modern touch and to bring it all together, we brought in metal chairs.

The green door of the greenhouse is what took this shoot from pretty to epic and super unique. That design and color of the door made these images come alive and stand out. My vision was not only the love between them, but I wanted a touch of fine art feel as well.

The cakes from Elise Cakes were absolutely stunning. She made “his, hers and ours” cakes. She made the first one smooth and simple, the second one included pretty ruffles with light shades of pastel greens to resemble watercolor and the third a three tier cake was the “ours” cake representing unity. And of course the two of three cakes where adorn with hand picked herbs and cherry blossoms. Too top it all she used vintage large pedestal candle holders as the cakes stand!

My ultimate goal for this wedding inspiration was to have it a flow like a real wedding should, which includes a cheese board as appetizers, followed by the couple at the table, sneaking out to take some more portraits during the golden hour, followed by cake and then last, but not least her new husband hangs love notes for her among the amazing smells of thyme, rosemary and sage upside down bouquets which were also all picked from the garden.

From A Signature WeddingNaz and Johana met in the fall of 2004 at La Sierra University, while both pursuing their undergraduate nursing degrees. Naz recalls the first time he saw Johana, as she walked late into their Anatomy and Physiology class. He will never forget her matching Ugg boots, Ugg sweater and Ugg purse! Johana recalls Naz’s friendly smile and thick mustache. Their friendship ignited while studying in the Anatomy lab.

For the next eight years, their friendship became stronger and stronger as they supported each other though the good times and bad. The more time they spent together, the more they realized they shared a special and deeper connection than just classmates or friends. Everyone could see the chemisty they shared. Naz adored Johana. And she looked up to him.

After spending much time together, they decided to take their friendship to the next level. Naz planned a Valentine’s celebration with a dinner and show in Orange County. Little did Johana know that he invited some of their closest friends to share that evening with them. He did this because that would be the night he officially made Johana his girlfriend.

Naz’s creative planning continued when he was ready to ask Johana to be his wife. Naz planned to surprise Johana and propose to her at his graduation party; Johana thought she was planning the graduation party. Lots of planning and details in between led to the special graduation night. They were at the Riverside Art Museum in Riverside, California. Naz devised a plan to get Johana to the rooftop. Johana thought she was giving a surprise to Naz on the rooftop- a celebrity- Walt Jr. (RJ Mitte) from Breaking Bad. A lot of planning, fake emails, and fake texts went into her believing this. On her way up the elevator to “meet with Walt Jr.,” she was saying how excited she was to take selfies with him. Sadly to say, he wasn’t there.

She got off the elevator and found a red carpet that led to Naz. She was confused. Was this part of the surprise? Where was Walt Jr.? She didn’t know. And then it kicked in. She walked up and kept interrupting Naz, saying, “Don’t mess with me…don’t mess with me!..”, which became viral amongst the party goers, who were downstairs watching a live streaming of the proposal. Everyone saw Naz get down on his knee, and ask Johana to marry him….she said yes!

When Johana and Naz were deciding on a venue, they wanted it to provide features that were important to both of them. Being Latina, Johana envisioned a location that offered a Spanish flair, and that would accommodate her romantic wedding vision. Naz envisioned a large wedding with all of his family and friends, and didn’t want to have to cut down his guest list. Having been a groomsman for many of his friend’s weddings, he wanted to reciprocate and have 13 groomsmen! They both wanted a place they could party until late into the evening. Serra Plaza was the perfect fit! The Spanish fountain provided a beautiful focal point for their ceremony, filled with beautiful florals, offering a romantic backdrop. Their neutral color palette of ivories, blushes and a splash of merlot, complemented the venue. They had three different centerpieces, filling the courtyard with a cohesive, yet unique look. They enjoyed a cultural cuisine of Middle Eastern and Mexican fare. And they danced the night away to an array of genres including Spanish and Middle Eastern music, a tribute to their heritages. To end the night, their late night cravings were satisfied with a visit from the In and Out Truck! Truly a signature wedding!

From The Bride… I have always envisioned a wedding in Tuscany with cobblestones and olive trees all around. However, we knew that it would be very difficult for many of our friends and family to travel. After looking at several different places in California, we fell in love with the Villa San Juan Capistrano. This beautifully restored house tucked away in greenery brought us back to our amazing time in Italy. We wanted to keep it simple, earthy, and romantic to compliment the natural beauty of the venue with mercury glass candles, sheer linens, pastel flowers, and organic calligraphy. One thing I learned from wedding planning is to work with your surroundings coupled with Pinterest. One of our favorite moments from the day was sitting at our table, listening to HIRIE play, and just enjoying the view. It was such a joy to see all our family and friends come together to celebrate our special day. Our wedding was everything I imagined it would be and more. From the food to the music, it was nothing short of amazing. I was in tears seeing for the first time what the vendors has created and our photographer captured it so well!
