The Perfect Venue

From the bride: When we were planning the wedding, we knew we wanted something intimate and personal, yet a total party at the same time. After we (I have no idea how) landed the perfect venue, Villa Montalvo, everything kind of fell into place over the next eight months.

Simple And Elegant Decor

Villa Montalvo is gorgeous, so it wasn’t hard making it look beautiful. I am not a huge fan of color, so we kept everything black, white, and cream with a touch of candlelight. We took full advantage of the site, utilizing all the tall Italian cypress, white roses, and beautiful grounds. Our florist completely understood our vision and everything looked gorgeous drenched in white hydrangeas.
