Rachel and Kevin came to me with only a color palette of whites and oranges in mind. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding rolling hills of the Rosewood property and imagining a crisp fall day when the leaves are changing colors, we created a day that really encompassed who Rachel and Kevin are as a couple.
Tucked away in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Rachel and Kevin's intimate wedding day was a fall dream come true. With a focus on their favorite color, we wove deep oranges and terracotta throughout their design - within the florals and stationary - while keeping a neutral foundation to balance the richness.
Golden Fields Floristry's rich bouquets and arrangements full of bright pom-pom dahlias, lush ranunculus, rudbeckia, marigolds, veronica, and incredible garden roses brought the design to life.
Rachel's beautiful long-sleeved sequined dress glistened under the October sun. Her bridesmaids joined her in sage floral gowns and the groom and his groomsmen were decked out in navy suits complete with pumpkin socks - an ode to Kevin's favorite color and flavor.
With a focus on color and textures, we brought in beautiful woven linens, garden inspired chairs and flower-shaped chargers made of seagrass, hand-broken terracotta vases that were turned into place cards, mini olive trees that doubled as guest escorts and favors, and a pressed flower cake.
"As the day unfolded, you could really see all the attention to detail and dedication that was in place to give their guests an experience”, says Wendy of Elizabeth Warrick Photography.
Rachel says, "We heavily leaned on Vanessa for design aesthetic and relied on her for decisions. She invested time in not only understanding our vision, but us as a couple and our personalities. Vanessa’s ideas turned out to fit perfectly into our vision and the day-of ended up being beyond magical for us and our guests."
