Summer garden wedding with white peonies in California
Elcin and Michael tied the knot at the iconic Rancho Valencia in Santa Fe, California. Their intimate, elegant wedding focused on enthralling all of their guests’ senses. Nothing was left to chance - from the opulent and cohesive design, to the carefully planed menu, and the groom himself playing a song on his guitar alongside the band - this summer wedding ensured guests had the ultimate luxurious and fun experience.
"The design itself started with bride Elcin’s custom Trish Peng gown," explains California wedding photographer and Fine Art Curation member, Carmen Santorelli Studio, who captured the special day. "It inspired the colors of the lush florals and linens, the use of the lavender at each seating, as well as the design of the beautiful cake and desserts created by Hey There Cupcake!
"Guests transitioned from the cocktail hour to the reception area, welcomed by champagne flutes adorned with custom calligraphy tags, and everyone danced the night away to entertainment by the Elan Artists band."
