Taylor and Kyle's Picture Perfect Fall Wedding
Taylor and Kyle are two of the sweetest souls and we were over the moon when they asked us to help them plan their wedding! When thinking of main points to base the wedding around, three words kept coming to their minds: family, food, and fun. We made sure that everything was connected to these themes during our planning process!
The whole celebration was about the love shared between not only them, but their families too! They are such a tight-knit group, which made every moment so special for the couple. We were lucky enough to work closely with Taylor and her mom, Charlotte, throughout the planning process. Working with them was a dream and we had fun every step of the way. They made sure we felt like part of their beautiful family!
Taylor's eye for design is incredible and her vision for the wedding day was clear from the beginning. Joined by the incomparable Elyse Hall Photography and Carte Blanche Design, the process truly was a collaborative effort to make Taylor's dream a reality. Together we created a gorgeous, fine-art fall wedding at the Royal Palms that was utter perfection.
Guests found their seats on Vernadero Lawn and watched as the Bride and Groom said their vows under a beautifully draped arch with flowers spilling around the top and sides. Taylor’s stunning dress caught everyone’s eye and Kyle looked especially sharp in his all black tuxedo—his plum and white colored boutonniere was the perfect accent. The mix of dark flowers and soft, dusty eucalyptus greens brought a fresh feel to the day. Every piece was thoughtfully placed creating a beautiful flow from the ceremony to Cocktail Hour to dinner.
Cocktail Hour was a showstopper with tasty hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Visually rich with navy velvet linens on the tables, color and texture was used to play into the fall season. As the sun set over the Royal Palms, a delicate light was cast over the space. The air was filled with laughter and chatter until it was time to move into the Estrella Ballroom for dinner.
All of the dinner tables were adorned with florals harmonious with the rest of the night. The tapered candles on the table gave off a heavy glow that made the gold flatware and accents really pop, and the blue linens were the perfect unique piece to tie the whole design of the day together. Our favorite moments from her day are plenty but to name one, we loved the moment when Taylor’s mom assisted in perfecting Taylor’s stunning lace gown. The warmth that radiated in that moment was undeniable; their mother-daughter connection was amazing to capture in a photograph. The design was beautiful and exceptional, and the cool blue tones of her design paired with the warm plum tones of the florals by Carte Blanche is something we will never forget. It was beyond gorgeous!
