Love in a Redwood Forest Faery Tale: Victoria & Justin's Wedding

Posted on June 27, 2015 at 12:35 AM

Victoria had me at faeries! During our initial phone consultation, she said she wanted a faery wedding in the redwoods, and I knew we were meant to work together! Victoria (who I came to personally call Vee) is a bit of a faery herself. Not long after meeting, we discovered that we share mutual friends and a love of aerial arts! Vee is an aerialist, and can be seen ascending and dangling from long, draping silks, performing acrobatics in the sky. I was beyond thrilled to work with her to create a magical faery tale wedding in the redwood forest at Miranda Gardens Resort.


 Country Living Florist provided the flowers, which added splashes of purples, magentas, whites, pinks and greens to the natural redwood backdrop. I loved Victoria's large purple and white paper flowers as a back drop for the band, and behind the cake.

And the cake!!!! One of my favorite details was the opulent, moss-dripped cake table, alive with figurines of faeries. Verbena Cakes did an amazing job with the immaculate cake!

Faery figurines frolicked on the moss-dripped cake table, adding playful fancy to the festivities!

Good thing we brought the dream catcher for this sleeping faery!

The guest tables were simply set for Citrine Catering's lovely buffet, with keys as guest favors. I loved Victoria's paper cranes suspended above the guest tables! It was a sweet nod to her own love of suspension from the sky!

The evening ended with Contra Dancing and Thursday Night Bluegrass, which got the entire party swingin around the dancefloor together!

Victoria and Justin, it was an honor to coordinate your wedding and a privilege to Officiate your ceremony. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!
