The idea of this shoot by HEATHER PAYNE PHOTOGRAPHY was a small family wedding in California, which took advantage of the incredible landscape and expansive beauty that the Santa Ynez Valley has to offer. Wedding stylist LACY GEARY envisioned them at a venue that represented their idea of natural and organic elegance and KESTREL PARK was the perfect backdrop to exchange vows and spend the evening enjoying friends and family. From the European elegance of the gardens to the buttery Californian light they couldn't have asked for a better place.
Putting together an incredible team of creatives was crucial in making this day come together so seamlessly. The richly textured florals from POPPY DESIGN CO. added depth and a beautiful contrast to Giselle's GALIA LAHAV gowns. In keeping with the al fresco feel, the dinner table incorporated a family style meal with earthenware place settings, offset with elegant bone handled flatware. This stunning shoot features in Issue 19 of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE.
