What a color palette!  What a view!  What a vendor team!  We are swooning over this dreamy backyard wedding set in the quaint hills of Rancho Santa Fe, California.  Huge thanks to Josh Elliot Studios for these awesome detail shots!  It was such a pleasuring teaming up with Alicia and Michele (aka the talent behind Before I Do Events) who designed each beautiful detail to perfection!  Vibrant hues of peach, blush, green and coral were paired resulting in absolute MAGIC!

J carried a gorgeous garden-style bridal bouquet of garden roses, dahlias, hellebores, clematis, stock, veronica and other like blooms.

The adorable flower girls wore delicate halos of babies breath and carried whimsical floral wands.


The ceremony took place at the beautiful Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, were we constructed a custom 8ft cross and accented it with hopps vines and delicate blooms including dahlias and garden roses.  Large entry arrangements were placed atop urns and deep wood stained pedestals.  Large hopps vines draped to the ground, where they were complimented by ivory pillar candles of varying heights and sizes.

The reception was simply breath-taking.  Dramatic 60ft garlands were strung across the reception, complimented by glowing market lights.  Faceted rose gold lanterns of differing heights and sizes were hung from the lush garlands, complimented by dripping vine chandeliers.  The fabulous fireplace was dressed head-to-toe in lush foliage and blooms, accented by glowing candlelight.  The ladies of Before I Do Events picked olive green goblets to be paired with textured wood tables (by Farm Tables and More) and delicately textured ivory fabric runners and napkins from La Tavola Linen.

Cocktail hour was simply stunning, with not a detail overlooked by Alicia and Michele, even a custom escort card display!
