Today’s wedding from Carlie Statsky is an expert study in blending garden wedding style with a bit of rustic detailing. Jesse and Mason spent an absolutely beautiful day together exchanging vows, toasting each other, and sharing their love with their closest friends and family at the lovely Allied Arts Guild.
From the bride, Jesse: Our wedding day was an unforgettable celebration of love with our closest supporters, our family and friends. The Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, CA, a beautiful and historic garden oasis, lent an elegant and intimate setting for both the wedding ceremony and the reception, all meticulously brought to life by wedding planner, Bari Howard.
With a garden ceremony setting resonating with rustic simplicity and charm amid the beauties of nature, family, friends, and further accompanied by the soaring sounds of stringed instruments to a cocktail hour fueled by signature Moscow Mule copper mugs and delectable appetizers, the day was topped off beneath an arbor with a majestic dinner place setting, heartfelt speeches, and an array of dance moves with music provided by a DJ. The day couldn’t have been any more wonderful and picturesque, with lovely, yet creatively keen compositions captured by photographer Carlie Statsky. We are truly blessed to call this memory our wedding day.
