Laura and David, two attorneys living in New York came to California to wed. Their venue was at the Highland Springs Resort, a natural wonder in Cherry Valley. Graced with lavender fields and olive groves and an ancient oak tree that has survived for 1100 years, it is one of the quintessential outdoor rustic and romantic wedding locations east of Los Angeles.
At this time of the season, lavender flowers were beginning to bloom. The olive grove provided an enchanting space for portraits and a cocktail area as well. The palette of soft tans, mist green, light lavender complemented perfectly to Laura's theme.
All the while, LaDawn Williams from Platinum Lining Events, coordinated this amazing wedding to make sure it went according to plan. She had kept a long distance connection with Laura and David to design this magical day.
And to the incomparable Lauryl Lane, who designed the breathtaking botanical inspirations including a Chuppah made of birch and adorned with florals and moss. The reception tablescapes were not only accompanied with flowers but with vintage bird cages. A surprising touch. Ingenious use of wood, moss, and other organic touches brought a natural element to the entire floral design. Laura did a little DIY herself and made all the numbers and placecards out of fabric and cardstock beautifully complementing the florals.
