Kestrel Park is a new venue in Santa Ynez that is SO HOT right now (Zoolander? Anyone?). We love the romantic, breezy setting of this European-inspired garden venue, but when we were planning our shoot this summer, we wanted to mix it up and bring in some moody tones and sexy vibes for Tracy and Alex.
Vanessa was inspired by moody shades of gold, rich mauve, midnight black, and velvet olive. Our vendor team complemented this color palette with some serious texture and elegant details: velvet linens, blackberry-charcoal cocktails, and organic arrangements of peach roses, chocolate cosmos, poppy pods, and locally-foraged greenery, including oak branches at Kestrel Park.
An assortment of curated tableware from Party Pleasers adorned our sexy but simple reception table. We’re especially smitten with the black matte flatware, brushed bronze chairs, and geometric Old Fashion glasses.
Paper Cake Events provided a scrumptious dessert spread, including cream puffs, gold-leafed chocolates, and a beautiful multi-tiered cake (almost) too beautiful to eat.
You can also check out the shoot over on Green Wedding Shoes this week!
