There’s something special about planning a wedding on a private estate. The chance for our design team to truly do something unique is what we thrive on. Carolyn and Scott wanted the flexibility and the intimacy of a private venue and the low key vibe of a backyard wedding. Amongst beautiful greenery and rolling hills, it’s easy to see why our bride and groom found Scott’s home to be the best space for their mid-century modern inspired “I Do’s.”
Held in the backyard on the lawn, the ceremony was modern yet elegant with crisp white and bright yellow accents. Guests were seated on white Eames-style chairs for the backyard ceremony, and neutral stone vases held pale yellow florals and greenery.
Followed by the three cutest flower girls wearing flower crowns, Carolyn walked down the aisle wearing a modern gown, holding an overflowing bouquet of ferns and golden blooms designed by Hawthorn Flower Studio, while Scott wore a custom navy linen suit with yellow accessories. Flanked by her bridesmaids wearing a variation of pastel blue dresses, Carolyn and Scott exchanged vows and became Mr. and Mrs.!
For cocktail hour, a delicious spread of meat and cheeses were served along with specialty cocktails from Libations. The signature cocktail for Carolyn and Scott was a smoky Manhattan and a Jalepeno-Cucumber collins with edible flowers.
The reception area was filled with long, wooden family style tables that were thoughtfully designed with white chargers topped with yellow napkins and silver flatware. Tropical style greenery served as centerpieces for each setting. A delectable dinner by Pixie and the Scout was served and beautiful toasts were given throughout the rest of dinner.
