In this Style Me Pretty feature, we get a peek into a glamorous wedding… with a modern twist… and a touch of magic. The go-to California favorite, Ojai Valley Inn, set the stage for a picture perfect celebration. The bride shares how they incorporated lovely and sentimental details to further enhance its magical outdoorsy theme:
Although we wanted to have our reception indoors to avoid any nighttime noise restrictions, we really wanted the ballroom to incorporate many of the natural elements that make Ojai such a gorgeous place. Our florist, Camille, did an amazing job of coming up with fun ways to do this, from draping greenery from the chandeliers and bringing in large, beautiful olive trees and various shrubbery to frame the dance floor, to using lush, neutral florals with different textures in planters behind our furniture vignettes. Additionally, since we had opted for black tie attire, we wanted to combine a few traditional elements like my mom’s silver platters on our escort table and gold-rimmed glassware, with more organic components such as long wood tables, and small arrangements of fruit on the tables. And our wedding planners were 100% right that having great lighting was key to highlighting these details and completely transformed the room to give it a magical, outdoorsy feel.
