Timeless Wedding with a Modern Garden Details at Cielo Farms in Malibu

"I really knew what kind of style and vibe I wanted for my wedding from the minute I chose Cielo Farms as our venue; something classic, simple and elegant, but still had a unique look that really exemplified my husband and I’s style. I wanted very neutral blushes/pinks in terms of the color palette, with mostly all white flowers, and some clean white, yet unique linens. The venue has a rustic, Tuscan style, however, I wanted to tone out the wood and stone with lots of whites, creams and blushes in the colors, and clean modern lines in the arch that we chose for our ceremony. Then we had this really cool neon sign displaying “The Sullivans” behind the bar, which I thought was so unique and I loved it! We even named our specialty cocktails after Ben’s late grandfather (The Secret Agent after his FBI roots) and my dad (The PGC, his company’s acronym). When it came to my dress, I knew I wanted it to match my wedding’s overall style as well. Something I could look back on and say, “Wow! This is still pretty, fresh, but classically beautiful.” My mom and sister have such an eye for pulling things together that the final product was truly everything that I envisioned for my wedding. Our ceremony florals and arch by Penelope Pots were by far the best-crafted detail we had for the event. The circular arch with the staggered aisle and flowers was so incredible and such a special touch that she added. My white flowers with dashes of stone pink were EVERYTHING. One of my favorite things we did for my wedding was definitely the silent disco at the end of the night that we had incorporated with our DJ. That was by far the coolest and most unexpected event of our wedding and I think it really took the party to another level. I was absolutely blown away when I saw the whole thing come together! If I could give any bride to be some advice? Go with your gut. If you want something and you can monetarily make it happen, do it! You don’t want to regret not doing something you wanted. It’s your day! It goes by so fast, so take some time to pause and look at all the people that came together to celebrate your love. It really is the one time in your life that you’ll have everyone you want in one place celebrating you and your partner! All I wanted in our wedding was for our friends and family to be together all in one room having an amazing time celebrating our love. I wanted our wedding to be just as much of an incredible party as it would be a serious ceremony of commitment. Nothing truly mattered but my husband and I sharing this beautiful moment with our friends and family." -bride
