Classically Elegant Pink And Black Wedding

Diana Lupu Photography

Under a beautiful oak tree at sunset, Doren and Peter were joined in marriage surrounded by those they love most. Their soft color palette of barely there blush, creams, and touches of gold served as the perfect compliment to the gorgeous Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills, California.

The entire wedding, from start to finish, was elegant, romantic, oh-so beautiful, and best of all, filled with the most touching, personal moments. Photographed ever so beautifully by Diana Lupu.

From the Bride:
In the beginning of my wedding plans, I knew that I always wanted a fall wedding, I just thought it was the perfect weather especially in Sacramento. Although I knew exactly what type of  flower I wanted in my bouquet, because of the season, peonies were not available so I had to use garden roses instead. From personal experience, always check the seasonal flowers that are available to use.

I love doing traditional things, and so I kept the first look very traditional. The 1st look was walking down the aisle, he did not know anything other then what my shoes looked like. I must say, doing that really put a time crunch on the rest of the photos we had to squeeze in. Although I honestly would not have changed a thing, it’s just always good to have a timeline and a great photographer to organize everything so you don’t miss any shots. Regardless of the flowers and the time crunch in order to get all the shots, it didn’t matter to me anymore. That day flew by so fast, I really wish I could go back in time and do it all over again exactly the way it was.

From Green Tea Photography:
Jordan mentioned she wanted the wedding to be “comfortable and fun” for their guests. The whole day was a complete breeze. They have become one of our good friends throughout this process!
The floral pieces in this wedding from Bishop’s Flowers are simply enchanting. The twine and burlap combined with cute colorful buttons makes a beautiful statement.

You’ll be amazed at just how cute the ring bearer and flower girl were! Instead of a traditional ring pillow, the rings were carried in a birds nest, does it get much more darling?

Words From the Bride:
I try to look at our wedding as both a gift and a blessing (which it was) and not get overwhelmed by the cost and little regrets that I might have. Love, love, love the big burlap bows that accompany the cute bride and grooms signs. The cakes from Lynn’s Cake look too cute to eat!

British Beauty Wedding

British Castle Wedding

The green English gardens of Eastwell Manor were bathed in the golden glow of the setting sun as Caroline and Richard said “I do.” Can you imagine anything more romantic? The bride truly amped up the drama with a cathedral length lace trimmed veil trailing behind her Reem Acra wedding dress. So gorgeous you will want to run out and buy one yourself! And as a nice change of pace, the groom will be sharing his thoughts on how the day went. We love our brides AND our grooms!

Joey Kennedy captured all of the grand moments at Richard and Caroline’s British beauty wedding. You can see it all in the full gallery here. Plus, Richard breaks down the budget so don’t hesitate to read on…

From the Groom:
With families on more than two continents, when it came time for us to get married we knew we would be celebrating more than once. On June 9th, we celebrated our marriage in the UK. We were so happy that a number of our American friends were able to join us, Caroline’s family and our friends flew in for the festivities. We were lucky to hold the service in Richard’s (the groom) old childhood church in the beautiful village of Chartham, just a couple of miles outside of the cathedral city of Canterbury.

The bride arrived wearing a Reem Acra dress and ‘Debra Moreland Paris’ long Alencon lace veil, in a vintage 1949 Rolls-Bentley Saloon, to the sound of a peel of bells being rung. The service was intimate and personal with Richard’s dad officiating and members of both sides of the family taking part.

After the service we took the car a few miles to Eastwell Manor near Ashford, for the dinner and reception. We, along with guests enjoyed the incredible food and hospitality of the hotel, in a stunning and historic setting. We then spent the evening dancing and catching up with friends that many of us hadn’t seen for a long time. We’d like to thank all the friends and family who made this special day possible, some by just being there others by helping us organize everything from 3,000 miles away. It is a day both of us will never forget and the photos captured the magical nature of the festivities.

I don’t think there was anything we would have done differently. We had very trust-worthy friends and family in the UK who were able to be our representatives, and make sure that the decisions Caroline and myself had made on our initial visit to the UK a few months before were executed exactly how we originally intended.

Additionally all services we used in the UK were very good at keeping in touch directly with us via phone and email to make sure on our wedding day, we only had to worry about showing up. Special thanks to Oriel Stratford at Eastwell Manor who also helped us stay on task.
