Enchanted English Garden Styled Shoot
A single tea cup started the dream of creating an English tea garden styled shoot. A touch of iridescence adds a bit of romantic elegance. Featuring a Hayley Paige gown every bride feels like a princess; this gown has romantic flared sleeves and iridescent sequins for extra shimmer. A low back line added to the elegance of this dress. This gown has you stopping and staring the moment it enters the room! The groom wore a traditional english tux coat in a muted tan. This traditional coat with tails was accessorized with gold cuff links, an english tie, and brown leather shoes. And no fairy tale would be complete without the most gorgeous location of Folktale Winery in Carmel Valley, Ca.
The flowers were abundant. A soft colour pallet of pinks, whites, and peach florals arranged romantically with a wild flower style. A huge installation was put in over the reception table that was 10 foot long! Florals were placed in tea pots and other styles of silver vases. A simple floral arrangement was added to the side of the simple fondant three tiered cake. The fondant was streaked with gold looking almost like marble (but much tastier).
We love the ceremony backdrop which was a DIY project created out of moss, vinyl spray glue and foam board – each panel was hand done with a finishing touch of green satin ribbon placed in an argyle pattern across the top of the moss.
This 15 plus foot table was the feature of the reception hall. Its solid wood foundation was layered with chiffon and satin table runners, mismatched china plates with real silverware and crystal glasses lining the side. Each plate was dressed with a place card tied around a personal jar of honey for your tea. The middle of the table danced with beautiful florals in various silver vases and tea pots, historical books topped with an off white bird cage, and faded green candle sticks.
