Romantic Travel Inspired Mountaintop Wedding in San Luis Obispo


"Oak Heart Estate is a new wedding venue on the Central Coast of California. Right in the heart of wine country, Oak Heart Estate sits on top of a mountain, with 360 degree views of the cascading vineyards & beautiful valley below. The venue itself is all out-door and has almost an old-worth aesthetic with all the yellow limestone rock work, the distressed arches & the gorgeous manzanitas & oak trees that line the property. Jenna & Evan were somehow able to design a wedding day that perfectly complimented Oak Heart Estate; they chose a soft and delicate color palette of sands, lavenders & sage. All the decor was vintage inspired with dashes of travel mixed in. With the venue being in the open and having an almost "unfinished" quality, it definitely gives the feeling of being at ancient ruins. Which is perfect for Jenna & Evan, who have a serious case of the wanderlust and are seasoned world travelers (Evan actually proposed at Machu Picchu in Peru and they're currently on their honeymoon in Kenya!). Jenna & Evan actually made all the reception farm tables, the dance floor & even helped in the construction of the onsite bathrooms (which aren't pictured, but are amazing!). A lot of their wedding day was hands on and almost every single vendor was a friend that was lending their services to make Jenna & Evan's day as magical as they had imagined. I shoot a lot of rustic weddings being located in San Luis Obispo county where most of the venues have big barns and are actually working ranches during the week. Jenna & Evan's wedding, while still rustic, had a completely different vibe! Not only is there no other venue quite like Oak Heart Estate, but the vintage choices paired with the natural & soft color palette created a much more romantic & delicate wedding day."
