I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

We rarely meet a wedding at San Ysidro Ranch that we don’t love, and Kim and David’s pink Garden fête is no exception. The bride hired Imagine Weddings & Special Events to create a mood of “elegance with a touch of whimsy.” The team nailed it with the help of Anna Le Pley Taylor‘s incredible floral arbor and arrangements and an incredibly stunning french-rustic inspired candlelit dinner. And, did we mention that we’re totally digging the subtle pink poodle theme in honor of the couple’s beloved pets. Lucky for us, the oh-so-talented Kristen Beinke Photography was enlisted to capture the day—SO gorgeous!

From the Bride: David and I met eight years ago while both working for the same accounting firm. We clicked immediately and quickly fell for each other.  As luck would have it, right before we met, David had signed up to transfer to London for two years. Five months into our relationship, we packed up his stuff and moved him across the pond for a two year accounting rotation. Long distance was hard, but we made it through and have been inseparable since. After eight years of dating my best friend, David asked me to marry him. We planned our dream wedding in four months and were married on October 3, 2015.

From Kristen Beinke Photography: Kim and David’s timeless wedding at San Ysidro Ranch was a wedding to remember.  Their coordinator Rebecca from Imagine Weddings designed the wedding to be elegant with a touch of whimsy, just like the bride and groom’s personalities. The couple also incorporated their beloved poodles into their ceremony and in the design of their cocktail napkins. The day was filled with love, laughter and and ended in a candlelit room filled with flowers.

We think you will too.

What can we say, we’re suckers for fab bridal style and we’re smitten with bride Adair’s clean, modern wedding day look. From the cut-out back of her Houghton NYC gown, to her palest-of-blue d’orsay heels, to her totally chic single-twist up-do, we’re loving her edited choices. The same method was applied to the couple’s lovely day at Watercolor Inn & Resort. The architecture of the venue shined amidst a vibrant group of family and friends. Lucky for us, Rachel Moore Photography was on hand to capture it all!

From the photographer: Adair grew up having family bonfires on Grayton Beach in FL, so it only seemed natural for her to pick a nearby venue, WaterColor Inn & Resort for her wedding. Being a photographer herself, Adair has refined taste and all of the design elements reflected that. The aesthetic of the day was crisp and clean with tons of natural beauty in the surrounding lush greenery and waters. After their peaceful outdoor ceremony, Adair and Jack led the way across the bridge over the water with their four piece brass band following behind them. Their reception was at the Boat House in the warmth of the glow of string lights, candles and the bride herself.

From the bride: Having everyone we love dearly together for a whole weekend (many of whom didn’t know each other before this), dancing to great music (including a great local band, my cousins’ band, both our sisters, and our jazz band friends) and keeping it a drama free, low-key weekend was really the main focus; I suppose that’s what made it special and unique.

Brittany and Jeff met in a very sterile setting–the dentist’s office. She’s a hygienist and he was her patient. Their gorgeous wedding, however, was anything but sterile. The event was filled to the brim with warm, personalized details and beautiful textures. We’re especially smitten with the sweet-hued and oversized dahlia bouquet by Flora Fetish LLC.

From the photographer: I loved that Brittany & Jeff’s Wedding was intimate and had so many beautiful personal touches. From the musicians that played during their ceremony to the groom’s father marrying the two, you could tell it was truly a coming together of family and friends to celebrate them. The bride wanted the day to be romantic with elegant vintage touches. Since the wedding took place in December, the bride had a fur wrap that she wore and there was a hot chocolate/dessert bar for the guests to warm up with after their meal. But the main showstopper of the day was the connection between the two of them. It was so evident to everyone around that day they were truly in love and so grateful to be marrying each other, truly an inspiration!

How they met from the bride:

We met at my work, I am a hygienist, my groom Jeff was my patient. Turns out we have been at the same church for about 14 years and have semi known of each other, but met for the first time in April when he came in. We hit it off instantly and soon after Jeff asked me out. There was such a peace and ease between us as we knew we were meant to be together. As we both love to travel I left the country twice since then, and he once which only made our hearts grow fonder. We truly feel the Lord has brought us together at the perfect time to display his unconditional convening love through our marriage.

Heidi Ryder is at again with these absolutely lovely images from Taryn and Nick’s wedding day at Westlake Village Inn. The couple are high-school sweethearts who always felt their wedding day was inevitable, so the event-planner-mother-of-the-bride had plenty of time (we’re talking years) to gather inspiration and ideas for a spectacular celebration. We love all the beautiful, personalized details of the day, especially the amazing florals (everywhere!) and the beautiful tented reception design. We’re know you guys are going to be as inspired by this one as we are!

What made the wedding special and unique? 

The most unexpected part of our wedding was that it took place on my 25th birthday. I never intended to share my wedding anniversary with my birthday, but it does make for one less date for my husband to remember.

As Nick and I had been together since early high school, it always felt as though our wedding day was inevitable. This gave my mom, an event planner, and me plenty of time to discuss wedding details. From the moment I called my mom to tell her we were officially engaged, it was game time. All of the photos of flowers, dresses, linens, embroidery designs and color schemes we liked we neatly filed away at my childhood home. I knew I wanted a romantic, warm and inviting style without appearing to be over the top. I even had my own “Franck” a la Father of the Bride, and he created the most beautiful flower arrangements for our wedding which tied everything together. The three of us collaborated to bring my dream wedding to life.

We held the wedding at Westlake Village Inn, which resembles a vineyard estate with a freestanding tent for the reception. A rustic, yet elegant look. The hotel became a destination wedding for us Westsiders who don’t venture far. It had all the best elements without feeling like a standard hotel ballroom. It was perfect.

Every small detail was so important to me. The color scheme was blush, ivory, green with a pop of one dark color. The floral arrangements were a mix of high and low vases, all different antique silver mixed with votive candles and petals. Three long tables framed the dance floor. A mix of rectangular and round tables were used to fill the room to make the space feel warm, cozy and intimate. We used rose gold flatware to balance the blush linens. Lighting throughout the tent was amber and pink to compliment the reception. Vineyard chairs were the last touch to complete the room.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

I never envisioned what my wedding dress would look like, which was a blessing and a curse. I tried on everything and anything. After many, many, many dresses, I found the one at Monique Lhuillier. It was the first dress that brought tears to my mom’s eyes, where she told me for the first time I looked like a bride. It felt real and was perfect.

The gown was extremely delicate with lace and tulle. I adjusted the dress slightly making the lace straps and train removable so the dress transformed after the ceremony.

What were some touches added to make it personal? 

The two most personal moments of the ceremony came through music. I chose to walk down the aisle to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” as did my mom at her wedding to my dad, and our cantor surprised us with a beautiful performance of my grandmother’s favorite song in her memory. Both songs will always resonate in my heart.

On the lighter side, we had custom drinks, letter-pressed napkins, drink stirrers and matchboxes with our initials on one side and ‘perfect match’ on the other. We monogrammed bathrobes for the bridal party, handkerchiefs with our initials hung on vintage racks during the ceremony ‘for your tears of joy,’ each parent and grandparent received personalized hankies and we even monogrammed welcome bags with our wedding hashtag #sarnoffisthenewblack.

Our delicious, simple and beautiful wedding cake was topped with a wedding cake topper Nick and I picked from my mom’s vintage collection.

What was the most memorable part of the day? 

My brother was my husband’s best man, which was a very touching moment in itself and his best man speech was probably the most memorable part of the evening for everyone. Only a little brother and subsequent best man could tease the bride in a way no one else could get away with. It was personal, funny, touching, loving, brass and perfectly reflected the love he holds for both Nick and myself.

Tell us how you met and became engaged!

Nick and I met in high school when he was a senior and I was a sophomore. I thought he was so cute and since he was the president of the Robotics Team (yes, you read that correctly), I joined the team so that we could spend more time together. Fast forward many years later and I can say for sure that it was one of the greatest decisions of my life.

He proposed to me while we were in New Orleans for our 8-year anniversary. On the second night, he took me out to dinner to celebrate and as we exited our hotel I saw a horse drawn carriage waiting to take us to dinner. It was the first moment when I thought “he’s going to propose to me tonight.” We rode around the city for a little while before stopping in front of a garden. We stepped out of the carriage and sat down at a bench nearby. That was the moment that Nick got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was a moment and a feeling that I will always remember. As he slipped the ring onto my finger I noticed the octagonal shape of the ring. Nick told me that he had it made to represent the eight years we had been together – the ultimate representation of our high-school-selves and the adults we had grown into together.

Susan and Alex both spent much of their youth by the water so Tiburon, with its coastal views and gorgeous scenery, was a natural choice for the couple’s destination wedding. We love the way planner Cassy Rose Events created a day filled with romance, beautiful gathered wildflowers by Mandolin Flowers and relaxed vintage details at Corinthian Yacht Club. Lucky for us, J Wiley Photography was there to capture all the happy moments set against a stunning seaside backdrop. Enjoy!

This Chicago-based couple are college sweethearts, and chose to have their destination wedding at Old St. Hilary’s Chapel set atop a grassy hillside in Tiburon, CA. Susan, a San Francisco native, writes, “The ceremony site is a small white clapboard former church located on a wildflower preserve overlooking the SF bay. We fell in love with the church immediately because it felt intimate, full of history, and a little quirky. We both spent a lot of time by the water growing up (Susan in the Bay Area, Alex in Cape Cod) and chose a venue by the water with gorgeous views.”

They incorporated the wildflower motif into all of their ribbon-adorned floral arrangements, and didn’t shy away from color! Their brightly colored flowers popped against the neutral landscape of the chapel and the whites and sky blues of the reception space.

Susan kept it simple with her understated, lace-back Amy Kuschel gown and baby’s breath adorning her updo, and Alex stayed sharp in a J. Crew tuxedo with classic lines.
