Real Wedding: Kelley & Rob, Part 1

When we sat down and talked about the look of this wedding, the bride Kelley and her mom, Ludie, said they wanted it to feel as if you were invited into an old southern mansion. This was the theme throughout the wedding infusing so many personal touches as if each piece was taken out of someones home. 
  The ceremony took place at the groom's parents house in their backyard. This place had special significance, since it was here that Rob proposed to Kelley.
 The floral design by Peony & Plum exceeded everyone's expectations and was the talk of the party. The one-of-a-kind floral wreath chandelier that was suspended from the oak tree in the back yard of the groom's parents home was an amazing focal point for the backyard ceremony.
 We used many props that were in the home including the blue and white vase filled with florals and lemons to help accent our beverage station.
 Moss Initials were created to hang at th entrance to the backyard and were later repurposed at the escort card table.
 Calligraphy Katrina did all of the calligraphy for this wedding including this tent card for the antique handkercheifs.
As soon as I set foot in the backyard I knew the tree was the perfect spot for the ceremony. And accented by the floral wreath chandelier and the swagged leaves down the aisle with clusters of florals and lemons just completed the look. 
The bride's dress was a custom couture gown by Alina Pizzano Couture based locally in Pasadena.
I love these photos in the rose garden which is where the groom proposed to his beautiful bride.
The bridal party, ladies dressed in Lulu Kate gowns in the shade of Tiffany Blue.
Stat tuned for more photos in Part 2.
