This wedding was total gorgeousness. As I mentioned in the last post, Seb and Brian wanted an elegant, romantic, candlelit wedding with a touch of rustic charm. Their incredible Spanish-styled venue, Villa Del Sol, is a hidden courtyard tucked behind a few bars and restaurants in Downtown Fullerton. It’s a beautiful little oasis from the rambunctious nightlife all around. Brian and Seb chose a gorgeous color palette of dusty rose, lavender, and silver against a canvas of deep brown. One of the motifs was trees- dark wooden boxes for the centerpieces, manzanita branches for the cermony, beautiful tree-stamped programs and bits of eucalyptus used as escort cards. The flowers of the day included roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, giant dinner plate dahlias, and fragrant sprigs of fresh English lavender. Hundreds and hundreds of mason jar candles added a warm glow to the long banquet tables. The atmosphere was classy yet cozy at the same time.

Seb carried a simple bouquet of roses, dahlias, and deep purple hydrangea, wrapped in lace to match her gown.
My hubby hard at work hanging mason jar lanterns on the tall manzanita trees . It was Brian’s idea to do a color gradation from pink roses on the bottom to lavender roses on the top. I love when grooms aren’t afraid to collaborate on flowers!
Each dahlia was as big as my open hand.
Sweet corsages of ranuncula, lisianthus, pink snowberries, and sprigs of English lavender.
How cute are these silvery Anthropologie dresses? I love the demure silhouette, and the rosettes are just lovely. One of the prettiest bridal parties ever! The girls carried fluffy bouquets of white dahlias, roses, and hydrangea.
My favorite detail, created by the bride and groom: Beautiful programs printed on handmade paper with embedded cosmo seeds. Guests are able to plant their programs and hopefully see a gorgeous bloom in its place! I took a program home with me- I’ll let you know if it starts to blossom. I’m great with cut flowers, but not so good with flowers in dirt.
More to come later!
