There is nothing quite like a spring wedding! Carmel Valley Ranch is one of our favorite venues to work at and we were so excited to plan this beautiful couple’s wedding. This romantic day was filled with fresh florals, dreamy blush tones, and bright greenery. After a heartfelt ceremony, the newlyweds captured photos throughout the venue’s outdoor space. They spent the rest of the day celebrating with their guests during their reception. It was such a joy to create this classic and romantic design. We cannot wait to share Allie and Cameron’s dream day at Carmel Valley Ranch!
Before the ceremony, Allie and Cameron got ready for the day with their bridesmaids and groomsmen. The moments before any wedding day are the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your wedding party before the guests arrive. Allie’s bridesmaids wore matching blush robes with lace detail to stay on theme for the day while she wore an all white robe. After hair and makeup, they shared a glass of champagne and captured getting ready photography. Cameron and his groomsmen also shared a drink and showed off their wedding day attire for photos.
Allie and Cameron opted for a first look prior to the ceremony. After adding the final details to their wedding day outfits, they met for their first look overlooking the mountains at the venue. They took the time to exchange romantic letters and capture bride and groom photos. That way they would have more time to celebrate with guests and could take a moment to relax before the day truly began. Carmel Valley Ranch offers so many stunning spots for photography at the private estate. The couple explored their venue after the first look, even capturing photos under the floral wedding arch before guests arrived. Wedding planner tip: if you are sharing a first look, take the extra photography time to also capture photos of your wedding day outfits!
To honor the spring season and the natural beauty of the outdoor ceremony space, Allie and Cameron decorated with fresh florals. Plenty of blush, green and white flowers lined the aisles and led to a grand floral wedding arch. The creative wedding arch brought together the ceremony space and become a beautiful spot for photos. Guests were seated in simplistic white ceremony chairs to view the ceremony. After a heartfelt ceremony, Allie and Cameron were ready to celebrate with their guests.
Classic and romantic was the inspiration for this spring wedding day. From the invitations to boutonnieres, we accounted for every detail. Allie and Cameron wanted to focus on a bright and airy color palette, fresh florals, with hints of metallic golds and silver. A gold-framed clear acrylic welcome sign greeted guests for the day and set the tone for the decor aesthetic. Guests could relax before the ceremony and during the reception at a sitting area with matching tufted lounge seating. During the reception, each place setting was decorated with a beaded charger paired with a blush linen and sprig of fresh greenery.
