We are smitten! Filoli Gardens in California set the perfect backdrop for this romantic garden wedding inspiration shoot filled with garden roses and peonies. Northern California wedding vendors came together to create something truly magical. We are enraptured by the willowy branches, and gorgeous color palette of mauve and emerald green designed by Brannan Events & Design. For just a moment, time stands still as you take in each romantic photo by Alice Che Photography.
From the planner, Elise of Brannan Events & Design: I teamed up with Alice Che Photography to create and bring this garden inspiration to life! We wanted to create a romantic, modern inspiration shoot with an update on one of the most classic wedding color palettes! We took blush and sage and turned it to mauve and emerald green, creating an elegant and elevated color combination.
We choose Filoli Gardens to host the shoot because of the breathtaking property and views and the gorgeous settings. There’s literally something gorgeous to see around every corner! We wanted the inspiration shoot to feel like a real wedding day so we did a boudoir session with the bride in the morning, with fresh picked garden flowers! We hosted boudoir in the main home and surrounding garden beds.
The ceremony was hosted in their “ceremony garden” where real weddings were hosted in the 1920s. It’s historic, romantic and you feel like you’re in Downtown Abbey. Cocktail hour was by the olympic pool and surrounded by cypress trees. The dinner was ultra romantic, next to a pond and fountain display at sunset. We combined historical yet modern textiles like tassels and letterpress to create a timeless feel.
How romantic is each detail in this gorgeous garden wedding in Northern California? We love how intimate it feels so this coastal elopement is equally as beautiful and cozy.
