Ethereal Spring Garden Wedding Ideas

"The color palette inspiration of the shoot initially came from Johanna’s love for light feminine colors but continued to blossom with Marissa and Jessica’ passion for timeless elegance. “Behind every trendy, boho and “out of the box bride”, there’s the bride who still wants her little girl wedding dreams to come true, but that also tells the story of who she and her fiancĂ© are as adults. We wanted to create something for her. Something elegant, timeless and feminine while incorporating some modern and trendy elements.” 

When discussing potential venues for the shoot, Marissa sent over pictures of the brand new venue that was home to a forest of romantic oak trees overreaching a grassy ceremony space and an old stone reception area, with patches of heavenly light dancing throughout. It was picturesque of a fairytale wedding location. Jessica was hooked on this vision, it called to her love for all things English garden and as Marissa described it, "It's a bit of English Countryside set in the Southern California Valley.”

They twisted and played with ideas, deciding on aged terra-cotta pots as vessels, using potted ferns, and herbs to accent the lush and timeless florals, playing with monochromatic shades of terra-cotta and a touch of mauve tones to compliment the nudey hues in the florals. Jessica knew that “Rancho De Los Fresnos was the perfect location with its stone walls to the large boulders and towering oak trees, it had exactly what we needed to bring our Modern English Garden concept to life.”
