Romy & Ryan dreamed of a wedding that would compliment the natural & outdoor environment of Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. Romy was going for simple elegance with a whimsical & feminine touch. The color palette incorporated soft shades of blush pink, champagne and greens for texture, with an accent of deep eggplant. They achieved this look in every way possible!

To incorporate a romantic vintage feel the bride and groom chose to have crystal chandeliers hanging from various trees throughout the garden and the reception tent. The backdrop to the ceremony was a majestic oak tree from which ribbons of flowers hung overhead.

The bride's bouquet was wrapped in French Satin ribbon as well as fabric from her wedding gown with a family heirloom broche; the bouquet was an overflow of dahlias, roses, blush peonies, with accents of eucalyptus berries and geranium leaves creating a textured feel.

from the beautiful bride, Romy ... It will come as no surprise, given "our story", that the general theme I envisioned for our wedding was a romantic, overgrown forest. I believe my exact instructions to our florists at The Hidden Garden were “like something out of a fairy tale”—and boy did they deliver it!

So ~ you want more???  Lucky for us ... Julie at Elysium Productions sent us the full featured wedding film! As always, the mega-talented crew at Elysium captured the essence of love, the essence of romance and the glory of the day!
