Imagine the calm and serenity of this lavender and lilac inspired California wedding… the sort of tranquility that exudes sophistication and elegance. Nature is love’s most beautiful match, don’t you think?
We’re elated to have been a part of this lovely wedding, featured on Once Wed! Here’s what bride, Ashley, has to say about the inspiration behind it all…
My wedding style came together very organically— I let the seasonal beauty of the gardens at San Ysidro dictate the colors, florals, and food. I wanted the day to feel natural and not overly produced but still very elegant and special, so we went with loose floral arrangements, blooming branches, bridesmaid dresses in various styles, and a whimsical custom emblem designed by Happy Menocal. I never considered what my wedding gown would look like, so I went into the process with an open mind. I tried on many gowns at several stores and ultimately found my dress at a Vera Wang trunk show. The collection was inspired by Madrid, Spain, and the floral appliqué on the gown reminded me of the rose gardens at San Ysidro; it was an obvious choice for me. Also, it didn’t have any boning or structure, so I felt very relaxed and comfortable in it.
