Kestral Park wedding with blush pink roses
Kestrel Park is one of favourite California wedding venues for it's lush picturesque surroundings, European-style architecture and feeling of pure escapism as you wander the sprawling grounds. That's exactly why Jenna and David chose Kestrel Park to host their chic flower-filled wedding, which we're thrilled to share with you today courtesy of fine art wedding photographer, Taryn Grey.
There's so many gorgeous details we know you're going to love, from the beautiful ceremony site and adorable flower girls to the delicious signature cocktails and escort card table full of seasonal fruits. It's all simply stunning!
Over to bride Jenna: "The ceremony was hands down my favorite part of the day. Walking down the aisle and seeing all of the guests for the first time was absolutely amazing. David’s father officiated the wedding and one of my bridesmaids read one of my favorite poems - 'I carry your heart' by E.E. Cummings. My father-in-law made our ceremony sweet, funny and personal with a touch of seriousness. We read our own vows and had our dog walk down the aisle as best boy."
And her advice for brides-to-be? "Try and see your ceremony set-up and reception before any guests arrive. I only managed to see the ceremony space first and it was one of my most vivid and surreal memories from the day. It brought instant tears to my eyes. It made me so grateful for all the hard work not only myself but everyone around me had put in. It made the day feel really real and the planning all worth it. When you start seeing guests it’s hard to even say hi to everyone, let alone look around and take in your surroundings. It’s a great moment."
