Eileen & David’s love story looks like a Christmas Hallmark movie; met on line on November 14th, got engaged on December 26th and decided to have a winter wedding at the end of February which was beautifully captured by Southern California wedding photographer LUCY MUNOZ.

These two had been waiting for their soul mate for such a long time and they didn’t want to wait any longer. The help of their wedding planner EMA GIANGRECO was fundamental to find the right wedding venue; a chic barn which could combine elegance and comfort at the same time. MELHORN MANOR offered the exact vibe they were looking for; the most charming space for their wedding ceremony and a comfortable event space evoking a true sense of warmth for the dinner.

With dramatic fabric draping and an impressive chandelier it transformed a rustic place into a very chic and unique fascinating setting. They exchanged their “forever” vows in the exquisite barn underneath a dramatic chandelier dressed up by a cascade of greenery by PETALS WITH STYLE; the effect was utterly romantic. The dinner took place in the 18th century stone farmhouse with an elegant set up to add a touch of sophistication to the wood barn.

To create the balance between rustic and elegant the tables were adorned with swaths of gauzy drapes and luxury flowers. The florist also incorporated some delicate pampas on the table set up as well as the escort cards positioned on a vintage mirror to give a sense of coziness. "It was a laid back yet elegant wedding with a very relaxed atmosphere. Above all we let LOVE speak."
