This Jenny Packham Ruby gown was such a perfect choice for today’s featured bride that Jessica was inspired to design her entire wedding day around it…Vintage decor with silver, gold and copper details mixed with lush white flowers and succulents. And what a fun and unexpected touch to have branches and moss with gold antlers as centerpieces. Such a gorgeous California wedding, enjoy!
Jessica + Wesley | August 16, 2014 | Cate School, Carpinteria, California | Dress Listing: Jenny Packham, Ruby
The Ceremony Our wedding took place on August 16th, 2014 at Cate School in Carpinteria, California. My husband went to school at Cate and the venue was ideal. It has a vast campus with perfectly manicured lawns, coastal foliage and Spanish style adobe buildings, all up against the Santa Barbara mountain range.
The Reception Our reception was outdoors on a large lawn. There were overhead tea-lights, lawn games, vintage comfy lounges with ivory nailhead couches and grey suede love seats. We chose silver, gold, copper accents with white flowers and succulents. For décor we went with rustic vintage details with gold antlers, silver lace linens, and white milk glass vases. We also had pewter and copper Moroccan lanterns, ferns, and metallic potted pines.
Jessica’s Dress Search Jenny Packam’s Ruby was the first and last dress I tried on. It was exactly what I was looking for, gorgeous material, comfortable fit, effortlessly sexy, and vintage details. I developed my wedding design after my dress!
How Jessica Felt in Her Wedding Dress Comfortable, Vintage, Glam
Why Jessica Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress I truly feel that I chose the perfect wedding dress. The compliments were endless. Why should it sit in my closet when another bride can enjoy it and show it off to the world?
