Get ready for the most glam summer wedding at Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch! We were so excited to jump back into wedding planning this year with this day. A balance of romance, over-the-top glamour, and an edgy style brought together this outdoor California wedding. Who says you can’t enjoy the summer season while wearing leather and lace? If you are looking for some out-of-the-box, stunning wedding inspiration, keep reading!
First, let’s talk about the wedding venue. Historic Seven Sycamores is located in the central valley and is a private outdoor escape. From intimate elopements to micro weddings, the historic venue is ready to host your event. The property began with just a few sycamore trees in 1927 and then grew into a full-scale wedding venue. We love hearing the story behind every wedding location for our clients!
Getting ready for the wedding day is such a fun time. You can include your full wedding party in pre-wedding festivities by surprising them with gifts like matching robes or socks. We always include plenty of time for hair and makeup along with photography before guests arrive. That way, you can relax before saying ‘I do’!
Ali and Conner had a blast with their wedding party as they got ready for the day on site. While Ali enjoyed time with her bridesmaids in the bridal suite, Conner and his groomsmen captured photos at the guest lounge and shared a celebratory drink.
The future bride and groom opted for a traditional aisle look. They still wanted to share a private moment before the ceremony so we suggested a first touch. This is such a sweet way to exchange letters, pray, or simply speak with your partner without having to see each other. Be sure to still put on your wedding attire for photos!
After the first touch and seating guests, it was time for the ceremony! For this design, we focused on plenty of lush florals and romantic candles to line the aisle. The bright and neutral color palette could not have been more breathtaking at this outdoor ceremony space. Ali and Conner chose to feature a unity candle lighting ceremony using one of the candles from the aisle. Then, it was time for vows and they were officially married!
There is something so chic about a classic black and white color palette. Each bridesmaid wore a strapless, full-length black gown and then selected their own hairstyle. They carried unique matching white floral bouquets with long stems. Conner and his groomsmen each wore a sharp black tux. By the way, if you are looking for more wedding attire inspiration, we are sharing ideas daily on Pinterest!
Aside from decor details, we look forward to seeing the couple photos with each wedding gallery! Ali and Conner adventured throughout the venue to capture their newlywed photography after the ceremony. They even got to show off their outfits with different accessories.
Onto the reception! Allie and Conner wanted their guests to feel at home for their celebration. We decorated a mix of farmhouse and classic round tables under the string lights for the outdoor space. Various greenery-focused floral arrangements and romantic candles were placed on each table. To add some modern pieces, we featured plenty of signage throughout the event. Black linens also added some edgy detail to the design. Finally, we can’t get over the grand three-tier wedding cake that served at its own decor piece.
