Outdoor wedding perfection.  That's what I am calling this darling Corralitos wedding, because, well... it soooo is.  A breathtaking day filled to the brim with personalized touches (think Star Wars meets Lord of the Rings meets all kinds of pretty), it's the kind of wedding that puts a smile on your face the moment you dive into each and every detail from Pema Osei Ling.  And that, my friends, is what we refer to as a whole lot of happy.  See it all captured beautifully by Nerinna Valera Photography in the full gallery.

From Nerinna Valera Photography... Keith and Rachel held their wedding amongst the Redwood Forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Their ceremony location on Pema Osei Ling was surrounded by beautiful redwood trees that felt massive, old, and peaceful.  The trees were so tall. 

Their reception location was a walk down the hill to an outdoor seating area with circular tables for guests and a U-shaped table for the bridal party.  On the tables were beautiful hand picked details ranging from tin square canisters, antlers, candy sticks, miniature gardens growing in boxes and glass cups.  There was a Lord of the Rings/Star Wars theme.  The cake had a Princess Leia and Han Solo topper and the tables held signs titled "Helms Deep," "Shire," and "Rivendell".... all are locations in the movie Lord of the Rings. 

Rachel, who is an animation artist, apparently picked out a lot of the details including collecting the tea canisters.  She was responsible for many of the DIY items that you see in the images.  Another thing to point out were the beautiful items she donned which very much was vintage.  Loved her necklace, bracelet, head piece, and especially her wedding dress.
