Cheers to Wedding Season! As the summer months roll in and temperatures rise, it seems like love is in bloom and couples everywhere are tying the knot. The Valentino Estate is in it's full glory during this lovely season, as the property's willow trees dance in the wind and romantic gardens just beg for outside fun. And outside fun was certainly had at Shannon and Will's picturesque wedding on June 8th at the gorgeous Valentino!
The sweet couple really mastered the art of effortless beauty at their outdoor garden wedding full of lawn games and casual appetizers. Instead of doing the traditional seated dinner, they opted for appetizer stations. Kudos to this idea! Not only did this dining style go easy on their budget, it also gave guests an array of options and created an inviting and friendly tone for the wedding.
The wedding exuded love and friendship because of the small details and personal touches that made the day all their own! Global flags lining the lawn were great ways to pay tribute to their heritage and family. Remembering past roots is especially important on a day made for making future family ties.
The bride and groom were simply radiant and their excitement and love shined bright. Blackbird Flowers (based in Encinitas, CA) captured their brightness perfectly with their beautiful floral arrangements composed of yellow and red flora. The arrangements really popped against the serene backdrop of green willows and a calm pond.
Just as we cheers to wedding season, we offer cheers to Shannon and Will! Their beautiful wedding at the Valentino was the perfect start to their journey together, which if it's anything like their wedding, will be full of love and laughter!
