Something Big

When Courtney and Cameron pulled up in a Cadillac for their engagement session earlier in the year, we knew something big was going to happen. The couple selected very specific elements on which to anchor the whole wedding design: the blush colored bridesmaids dresses, the pearl details on her wedding ceremony gown, white orchids, pink roses and peonies, clean cut and vintage inspired groomsmen suits, and draping crystal accents.

Designate What’s Important

A wedding is so many layers, each with it’s own significance in the grand scheme of the design. It’s not just about selecting your color scheme and venue, but in designating which details are important to you and using those elements to create the overall atmosphere you want to encapsulate.

Hire A Coordinator

To be honest I would not have changed anything about my wedding but the best advice I could give future brides is select your team of vendors carefully. I am a control freak and have heard so many times of brides freaking out on their big day. I knew I did not want that stress. I selected true professionals that I knew I could trust and were on top of their game! Another tip I would have is hire a wedding planner or at least a DOC. I had a full wedding planner, Robin Ballard from Events by Robin, she was truly one of my best investments. I did not even worry about one thing! It was great!

Getaway Photo Session

Courtney and Cameron decided on a small getaway photo session on the beach before heading back to the wedding party for dancing and continued fun. We were so glad to be a part of their story! Beautiful couple and beautiful wedding!

Very Vintage And Romantic Wedding

vintage wedding ideas @weddingchicks

Kelsey and Joe knew they wanted to have only their closest family and friends in attendance. The Grace Maralyn Estates were so beautiful and perfect for their intimate wedding.

They really wanted their wedding to be as enjoyable for their guests as much as it was for them. From their delicious treats via Zest It Up to amazing music and entertainment we think they did a spot on job. See all of the details from this very vintage and romantic wedding in the full gallery here, photographed by Loveridge Photography.

Find Your Perfect Venue

Making the big decisions about our wedding was pretty easy once we decided on location. We live in Southern California but decided to get married in Atascadero, California. We love the Central Coast and through our many visits there, we knew that was the place to have our big day. By happenstance, I did a quick search on VRBO just to see what kind of estates were in the area and that’s when we found and The Grace Maralyn property.

Focus On The Big Picture

Advice for future brides would be to not get caught up in little details. Like if you get a snag on your dress or your tables aren’t dressed EXACTLY how you imagined, don’t sweat it. No one even knows that anything went awry half the time and you won’t remember those little details 40 years from now. You’ll just remember what an absolutely perfect day it was when you married the love of you life.

Dinner Party Atmosphere

For the reception, we didn’t do a traditional head table. We sat by ourselves at a sweetheart table while the bridal party sat with their partners at different tables. One of my favorite pieces of decor from the wedding would have to be the vintage 1920s settee that my, now, husband got for me as a valentine’s day gift. We wanted the dinner to have a dinner party atmosphere, which is why we chose to have heavy tray passed hors d’oeuvres from Zest It Up all night instead of a traditional sit down meal. We did not want the night to end. Everything was so perfect.”

Don’t Forget To Eat

The only thing we would have done differently would have to be to eat more of our caterers delicious food from Zest It Up. Our guests snatched up all of our gourmet tray passed hors d’oeuvres before we had a chance to! Luckily we had a food tasting. At least we know it was a hit!
