I just love Kelsey and Carl. It was an absolute joy to be a part of planning their beautiful wedding and they are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Kelsey and Carl chose to get married in her parent’s backyard in Orange County to give their wedding an intimate, personal feel. Kelsey wanted to include all things pink, lace, vintage and pearly. Carl requested that there be a romantic ambiance, with a “Great Gatsby” dreamy vibe.
The wedding was romantic, sweet and personal. It was featured on Style Me Pretty a while back. You can see the post here and I am excited to share all of the lovely details with you today. To make working a wedding for two amazing people even better, I had the privilege of working with some of my favorite vendors. Michael Norwood was on board to capture the day and his photos are absolutely stunning.
Meet the gorgeous Kelsey:
And the handsome Carl:
My friend Kristin from The Treasured Petal created the beautiful flowers. The feminine pink florals were lush and romantic, including garden roses, dinner plate dahlias, fragrant stock, and hydrangea.
The bridesmaids wore darling Melissa Sweet dresses.
Not a bad ceremony site (or backyard for that matter!):
Kelsey wanted to incorporate crystals, pearls and lush flowers on the ceremony arch and Kristin’s creation was gorgeous!
One really unique detail that Kelsey’s mom thought of was to have a mini version of the wailing wall of Jerusalem. She created this gorgeous mini wall and we had guests write prayers for the couple and then place them in between the rocks. Such a cool idea! The wall is now in the couple’s home.
I will be back will all of the reception details in my next post but, for now, I’ll leave you with a few killer photos of the couple:
By the way, how incredible is Kelsey’s Kenneth Pool gown?
Happy Friday everyone!
