Real {Destination} Wedding ~ Laura and Danny

Laura and Danny were married at Crestmore Manor in Riverside, CA where our good friend, Charlotte based photographer Caroline Ghetes, was there to capture every gorgeous moment. Laura was flawless in an ivory tulle ball gown with floral ebellishments at the waist. Her bridesmaids wore pretty cocktail dresses in neutral taupe or cream and carried mixed bouquets in muted hues similar to Laura's. Danny and his groomsmen wore tailored suits in light gray with white button downs and mod-ish black ties. The ceremony was held outside the carriage house where a wrought iron canopy wrapped in flowering vines with pink blossoms and hung with antique chandeliers created a dramatic centerpiece.

A soft palette of mixed pastels and vintage iron and wood display pieces in a variety of neutrals created a lovely antique feel for the reception. The tables were dressed in white linens set with dark chivari chairs and striped runners made from a variety of grosgrain, satin and velvet ribbons. Laura and Danny spent months collecting a variety of unique vessels for the floral centerpieces, including wire birdcages and wooden birdhouses, watering cans, potting stands and even candlesticks. Florist Bloomingals used flowers as the common thread and created fitting arrangements for each one, giving every table a different, but cohesive look. Twinkle lights were strung all around the open-air reception, giving the evening a soft glow as guests danced to an amazing jazz band. At the end of the night, Laura and Danny hopped on their white Vespa and sped off to cheers from family and friends. Don't miss the Candy Land themed candy bar displayed on a table covered in grass and the fun photo booth which made for endless entertainment and priceless images!
