Inspired by glamour, gardens, and romance, you're going to fall in love with this sophisticated wedding editorial captured by Southern California wedding photographer XO & FETTI PHOTOGRAPHY. Designed and planned by Korina from SERENE EVENTS AND DESIGN she has channelled the charm of the gardens and combined it with luxury by incorporating grand hanging chandeliers and towering cathedral windows. The tasteful colour palette blended neutrals with accents of black, deep greens and burgundy.  

Featuring a dreamy PRONOVIAS gown from ARCHIVE BRIDAL, whimsical greenery and blooms by OAK AND AMBLE, an adorable classic Porsche Speedster, a masterpiece of a cake by PEGGY LIAO and the gorgeous background of CARMEL MOUNTAIN RANCH ESTATE, couples are invited to take inspiration from this marvellous elegance. 

Our table exudes elegance with the cane back chairs from BRIGHT EVENT RENTALS and the hovering golden chandelier. As you look on the table, our garden elements come in to play with the dainty florals in aged venetian fruit bowls. Our graceful black menus, by Wedding stationery designer THE BRIDAL PRESS are the perfect addition to our table setting. The whimsical plant on the menus mirror the hanging smilax above. 

As we travel to our ceremony space, we are surrounded by beautiful gardens. Dark cathedral windows take the stage and are cloaked in greenery and florals. Our stunning harpist, Sophie, strums classical love songs as our couple sways to the music. Romance fills the air along with white feathery blooms as they fall to the ground. The final touch was the vintage Ivory Porsche which made for a classy exit for the happy couple.
