Fairy Tale Wedding Inspiration in Santa Ynez Styled with a Soft Palette of Pink, Orange, and Purple

From Lesa, the photographer: 

“‘A fairy tale wedding’ in the heart of Santa Ynez. This styled wedding took place on a private residence called Kestrel Park. This is most romantic and private location in California surrounded by hundreds of acres of open land, leaving nothing but the guests and the newly weds amidst the mountainous valley.

The outdoor ceremony was intimate, romantic and magical. The ceremony was decorated with a soft pallet of cream, pink, orange and hints of purple which were mainly expressed in the bouquet and floras. A breathtaking floral arrangement was created to replace a traditional alter. They were located at the end of a long and narrow path surrounded by trees. The floral selection was few but grand as they added color to the surroundings without taking away from the beauty that already was.

The bride looked stunning in her hand-embroidered floral applique dress; this dress was a beautiful off white paired with a cathedral length veil. The couple’s outfits embodied the feel and mood of the day, an elegant and romantic wedding. Kestrel Park provided many on site and walk-able locations surrounding the ceremony which allowed for a variety of space to celebrate. The wedding day was beautiful just as imagined.”
