For an unforgettable outdoor occasion, consider a Maravilla Gardens wedding. This Southern Californian venue offers a unique space to celebrate in. It’s a home away from home with stunning gardens designed for wedding use. In this case, Wingyun and Theodore make the most of the backdrop to host a magical garden wedding.
The bride opts for a strapless wedding dress, giving her opportunity to accessorize with body jewelry. As seen in the images, she drapes a delicate pearl chain over her shoulders. It goes together with her heels; a gorgeous gold pair of sculpted stilettos. In addition to this, Wingyun holds a wedding bouquet, made up of light pink roses and creamy pastels. The groom, on the other hand, selects a dark suit with violet tie.
To start, the patio holds arrival drinks. Lush gardens surround the guests and a superb Californian vista peeks through the cracks. There’s also a keepsake box in the vicinity. ‘Leave a note for the newlyweds’, the chalkboard says. From date ideas to stories or even marriage advice, it’s a fun way to involve guests. As well as this, it provides the happy couple with a funny memento to look back on.
Onto the wedding ceremony! Set beneath a swooping canopy, guests sit on white lawn chairs. Whereas a concrete path in the center makes the perfect aisle to walk down. The sun beats down on top of the central wedding party, where 6 bridesmaids each hold a mini parasol. After the couple exchange vows, they shoot romantic imagery in the barn. Wooden beams and hay bales give a rustic charm which only sets to compliment the glam couple. They then shoot further imagery in the garden, just as golden hour strikes. The combination of desolate fields and rich greenery makes for an ethereal photo series.
Finally, the wedding reception begins. Also set outdoors, another patio area transforms into a spacious garden party. Here, clean whites and stylish simplicity is the decor of choice. The wedding cake is a minimal 3-tier cream delight, with ivory detail and gold trimming. Surrounding cookies also offer a perfect treat to snack on. This is when wedding celebrations get into full swing. With music, dance and even sparklers, it’s a magical end to a beautiful day.
