Candlelight & Peonies

There are probably not enough words to describe how gorgeous this wedding turned out – and how much we loved working on it! Ashley Maxwell’s photos capture the stunning beauty of this day at Casa Real perfectly. We wanted the ceremony to ooze pure romance – and with the perfect lighting from Fantasy Sound coupled with lush whites and blush pinks, we think it came out seamlessly. The aisle led perfectly up to the altar, with scattered white and blush pink petals down both sides of the aisle and sweet, lush hanging jar arrangements off the gold chiavari chairs.

The altar up at the fireplace was utter perfection. Ivory pedestals of altering heights lined both sides and were topped with gold candelabra arrangements. For the mantle we created a garland of greens with whites, ivories and blush pinks. Floating candles and a lush pink peony linen from Napa Valley Linens for our couple’s unity candle topped off the romance. A really sweet touch for the guests was petals in little organza bags waiting for them to toss after the “I dos.”

The reception transitioned seamlessly with caprice beige linens, from Hartmann Studios, complimenting the gold chairs and placing the gold candelabra arrangements around the room with alternating low centerpieces. Flickering amber lights gave the room an added ambiance – and the pink peony linen from the ceremony was moved to take center place as the cake table for a subtle ‘wow’ factor.

The icing on the cake here was the stunning bridal party! We loved the formal and romantic look with the girls’ blush pink dresses and the guys’ black suits. The mix of whites, ivories and blush pinks with our bride’s stunning veil and all pink bouquet with lush peonies just screamed perfection.
