Shabby Chic Wedding With A Formal Twist

Asiel Design and Lauren of Downey Street Events teamed up to put together this shabby chic wedding with a formal twist. Using old keys and Kraft tags as escort cards, soft flowers and succulents carefully settled in split peas for centerpieces makes for an elegant affair with a dash of whimsey.

All photographed by Julie Mikos at the Northern California wedding venue, Kohl Mansion. To see more prettiness visit the full gallery by clicking here.

The bridesmaids looked ultra chic in their ocean blue Twist Wrap Dresses by The Dessy Group. We love that each dress was wrapped differently, giving all of the bridesmaids their own look. Most of the wedding party wore their hair in an up-do for a sophisticated and polished look.

Emily and Will took advantage of our Free Crown Wedding Printable. We have the invitations, response cards, menus and programs available for free. You simply need to type in your information and chose your colors. If you love the crown theme we also sell a regal tote to go with your elegant affair.

We have all seen In-N-Out burger at the weddings, but never quite like this. The highlight of the evening, Emily said, was “when we had In-N-Out burger deliver to the venue at the end of the night. Our wedding planner, Lauren, was so brilliant — she had the assistant wear a cigarette tray and an In-N-Out hat and served everyone.” Seriously…how cute is that?

  7. I was looking at these and then thinking about how beautiful it all was. The centerpieces. The dresses. The hair. Ahh! Beauties. Then I realized the location seemed familiar… Ah Khol mansion.. that’s where I went to highschool. I`d love to get married there but being from Montreal its going to be a little tough !

  8. I absolutely LOVE this wedding! From the bride’s style to the skeleton keys and apothecary jars and damask napkins. SO lovely!
