Rustic Neutral Colored California Wedding

I’m a firm believer of beauty in simplicity, and this wedding fits that bill to a perfect T. Designed around a spectrum of neutrals and white peonies tucked in every arrangement, Judy Sieber of Emily Joubert brought the al fresco celebration to life. The gallery is overflowing with pin-worthy moment, all photographed by Danielle Poff, and you can get started here.

From the planner, Judy Sieber of Emily Joubert… Wendy and Mike had a clear idea of what they wanted their wedding to be. Simple and rustic yet elegant. She was obsessed with the details making it the wedding that she envisioned. The site was a historical family farm named The Champagne Paddocks in Woodside. It was a fitting sight as the surrounding areas were champagne colored. It was a late afternoon wedding with the golden color of the light on the straw fields. They were married under a large live oak, by a close friend. The string quartet were graduate students of the Perlman Foundation.

The caterer was Paula LeDuc with a beautiful menu with their favorite foods from restaurants when they were dating, and dinner was buffet style with one long farm table. Centerpieces were filled with white peonies – the last of the season, as was her bouquet! Guests danced until midnight under a full moon and café lights from Got Light. Music was provided by DJ Matteo and the décor around the stable was simple, understated and elegant. Antique kilims were on the floor surrounding a great fountain where the horses uses to drink.

From Marianne Sabado PhotographySince Fall has officially started I wanted to put together a styled shoot that transitioned Summer colors into Fall colors. I wanted the shoot to be more earth toned with the the purples and greens as the main color that’s recurring in most of the images from candles, to Kelsey’s (our model) halo, to the flowers, to Ethan’s boutonniere and the paper goods which was all watercolor based made by The Romance Between.

I live in McKinney and our town is very small so I wanted to incorporate some local vendors and highlight their beautiful work. The only vendor who’s work traveled far was the paper goods which came from good ol’ Southern California. McKinney is also surrounded by open land and beautiful ranches and I thought this would be the perfect spot to host the editorial shoot.

Nautical

From The Bride… When Dave and I got engaged and started to think about our dream wedding, we knew we wanted to plan an event that would be elegant and classic with whimsical, personal touches and most of all be relaxed and fun for our guests. We live and work in Manhattan and decided we thought it would be extra special to come up with a great weekend destination – somewhere that would get people out of the city but wouldn’t be too far away for most of our guests. I had vacationed in Newport with my family growing up and had recently been back to Castle Hill Inn which is just the most magical and beautiful place – I knew it would be perfect. Dave and I took a trip to Newport and he was immediately convinced- Newport and Castle Hill would give us that perfect elegant environment for the wedding, with lots of room for fun for our guests.

We worked with Joyce Holland of Stoneblossom Florals and she became an incredibly trusted adviser and friend in planning. We weren’t stuck on any particular types of flowers but we knew we wanted the environment to feel light and soft with some minimal seaside/nautical touches. She paired lots of white and green flowers with beautiful garden roses, anenomes and other seasonal varietals which gave the perfect flecks of color for our fall celebration. She brought in tons of candles, mercury glass and other beautiful additions like lanterns and aisle decor. She was our savior! To add to Joyce’s decoration, the crew at Exquisite Events handled lighting. We picked vintage chandeliers and swathed the tent with fabric to bring the ceiling down a little lower and give it that quaint, vintage feel.

We were very lucky to have Judy Pak as our photographer. We fell in love with Judy’s signature style – light and airy, dreamy images. She captured our day to a tee from the perfectly orchestrated “first look” to those little moments that only the most skilled photographers can catch. She is a true artist.

Our cake was created by Marc and Marie Soliday/ Confectionery Designs. It was spectacular! Marie worked with Joyce to replicate the flowers in my bouquet. We were blown away when we saw it. Plus it tasted delicious. We had a most excellent band – Big Mix with Joe Shane, we brought them up from NY. I had seen them perform at a wedding many years before and they always stuck in my head. They played classic covers and even backed my husband our friend up for a little impromptu Whitesnake performance.

There were many special and personal touches throughout the weekend. From our “message in a bottle” save the dates, to our Adirondack chair escort cards (to match Castle Hill’s signature chairs) to our personalized welcome bags and signature cocktail straws, and much more, Alana Jones-Mann outdid herself in our collaboration! Alana is the queen of whimsy and details and took our visions and made them realities. She also hand letter pressed our three-piece custom invitations and created a gorgeous presentation for when they arrived to our guest’s mailboxes.

Castle Hill could not have been a more perfect venue for us. With breathtaking seaside views, the mansion and semi-permanent tent set the scene for our dream wedding. The menu was exquisite and the service is unparalleled. After the reception in the tent we hosted an after party in the mansion where our guests partied into the night. Our wedding was truly a dream, we loved every second!
