From A Stunning Affair: The ceremony garden, guests took in the magnificent décor of dramatic archways decorated with ivory draping, chandeliers, an aisle lined with gold candelabras with a rounded floral arrangement on top and rose petals swirled along the edges of the aisle. Guests were seated on gold chiavari chairs while listening to the angelic sounds of a harpist.
Guests watched as the bride and groom exchanged their vows under a beautiful chandelier adorned with flowers, complete with crystals and stacked rose petals hanging overhead.
From the Bride: For our ceremony, we did a love letter wine box where we wrote a letter to each other about what we love about the other, sealed it and locked it in the box which we won't open until our 5 year anniversary. For the wine, I got a bottle from the year we started dating, and now we have the box displayed in our home
From A Stunning Affair: Mixing her love of the outdoors, romantic elegance and literature, Bre created an enchanting wedding at Hartley Botanica in Somis, California. Surrounded by lush greenery, flowers, chandeliers, draping, mirrors and the gentle sound of waterfalls, Bre and Derek celebrated their wedding vows in the company of 120 of their closest friends and family.
From the Bride: I would suggest bringing a pair of flat shoes to change into for the reception. After wearing my heels for a couple hours through ceremony and photos, it felt great to take them off so I could dance and run around and talk to our guests comfortably!
From A Stunning Affair: A gorgeous (and delicious!) three-tiered cake topped with fresh flowers centered an elaborate dessert table with a backdrop of mirrors that read “nothing is sweeter than love,” along with macaroons, fruit bars, and snowball cookies displayed atop a variety of pedestals.
