Kathy + Gregg, The French Estate, Orange

From the minute I first met Kathy and Gregg, I knew their wedding was going to be such a charming, personal affair filled with fun, family and friends, and good BBQ. Yes, I said BBQ- one of the coolest elements of their day was the on-site BBQ provided by Jay's Catering. So perfect for the BBQ-loving couple. It was a huge hit, not to mention hugely delicious!

Leading up to the wedding we had a blast planning out the look of the day. With the vintage setting of The French Estate as the backdrop, it only made sense to bring in whimsical and rustic touches in the flowers and decor. Kristin from The Treasured Petal did an amazing job of working with us to bring the vision to life, including Kathy's luscious bouquet wrapped in antique-looking lace, a huge floral wreath that hung from the front doors on the porch of the house (where the ceremony was held), and an assortment of hanging glass containers that were hung over the cake (no pictures of the wreath or cake table yet- but trust me, TOTALLY charming).

To top everything off, we had Gabriel and Carlie from gabriel.ryan.photographer there to photograph the day. Not only did they photograph the heck out of it, they added to the awesome vibe with their fun-loving and warm personalities. Check out a preview of the day- more to come!

Love love LOVED their first look. It was like no one else was around them- they were so at ease, and literally seemed like they could have just stayed there, talking and enjoying the moment, forever!

Aren't they adorable?
