I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this beautiful Plum & Oak Photo collaboration with Kelsey Rae Designs and Carla Kayes Floral Design. The old world feel of the venue, the moodiness of the photos and the shoot altogether, and how much this reminds me of an 19th-century romantic novel are a few of the things I adore so much about it. The big topic of this whole shoot, though, is that stunning agate-designed cake by Sweet Cheeks Bakery. Agate is popping up everywhere and I’m glad it’s found a spot with weddings. Use them as table numbers, decorate your floral table runner with agate colors that stand out, or like this shoot, plant them onto your wedding cake.
From the event designer, Kelsey Rae Designs: The second I stepped foot on Vista Valley Country Club, I could just feel how special it was. It has an old world charm that makes it super unique, and now one of my favorite venues in San Diego County. Instinctively, Elyse of Plum and Oak Photo and I wanted to do a shoot that showcased the unexpected. As with most things we do together, the idea clicked right away for both of us. We looked at each other and said, let’s go moody and bring in agate and other things you wouldn’t think would be in this type of romantic setting.
