From Ever After Events: Kamela and Kenneth truly waited for “the one” and finally found each other! This was a large celebration of both Texas families coming together to share in their love for each other. No detail was overlooked at this stunning Rancho Valencia wedding. A nearby church held their intimate and personal ceremony. The spectacular party was held on the Croquet Lawn of Rancho Valencia under the stars.

Breath Taking Decor

A ribbon canopy hung above the custom wood dance floor, which each table was ‘scaped with vibrantly colored flowers. Each guest had a unique glass bottle filled with olive oil that was the escort card. At each place setting was a baguette with the menu hand calligraphied. The guests used the olive oil for dipping that evening.

Eat Something Incredible

From Michele Coulon Dessertier: Dessert is not something you eat everyday, so make it worth your while….I would rather eat a small piece of something incredible than a lot of something not so great!

We love this philosophy and we could not agree more! And with a beautiful cake like Kamela and Kenneth’s barely frosted four tiered masterpiece you know you are about to eat something incredible! Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

Morning After Remedy

From Ever After Events: Guests danced, enjoyed the custom photo booth and making s’mores by the fire. When it was time to leave there was a sparkler send off where the couple sat on top of a convertible as they left their reception. Guests took home bags with organic muffins, fruit and Starbucks to enjoy in the morning.

Barnsley Gardens Resort

Jonathan and I were married on October 12, 2013 at Barnsley Gardens Resort in Adairsville, Georgia. Our search for a non­traditional yet elegant venue led us straight to Barnsley Gardens where we were able to find our ideal blend of history and class in this beautiful historic resort. The wedding ceremony was held at the historic ruins of the old Barnsley estate with the ethereal sound of classically­ trained stringed quartet Act of Congress (AOC) filling the gardens.

Beauty Within Ruins

Following the ceremony, the reception was held within the ruins and on an adjacent, tented lawn. We wanted to maintain some of the traditional elements of a Southern wedding with an atmosphere that still felt open and relaxed. Barnsley provided just that. The reception was catered by Barnsley chefs and constructed of stations selected based on our taste for fresh, flavorful food.

Play Lively Bluegrass Music

The music was lively and blue­grass in its feel, also played by AOC, with dancing that carried us well into the night. The event design was inspired by the wedding gown itself with elements of vintage, 1920′s charm conveyed through a softer, romantic palette (a theme that was also important in the design of our stationery).
