Elyse grew up in a home above the Azaela Reserve in McKinleyville. She watched her father and 2nd mother build a beautiful landscape out of a blank slate, and dreampt about one day having her wedding on this property. That day came on August 22, 2015!
Elyse and Jonathan hosted an elaborate and detailed back yard garden party for their wedding. The stages of the party were hosted in various locations throughout the gardens, giving each moment of the wedding its own chapter.
Guests were shuttled in from their hotels, and were welcomed on site by a champagne welcome reception in the garden entry, as they awaited the arrival of additional guests.
Just before the ceremony began, guests were ushered to the ceremony location in a different part of the garden.
Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the driveway and in the front of the house, followed by a lovely dinner catered by Uniquely Yours catering. We absolutely loved all of the scattered vintage details on the tables!
Following a wonderful dinner and toasts, guests hopped on the dancefloor, and didn't leave until the music stopped super late night! Everyone had a fantastic time!
Congratulations Elyse and Jonathan! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
