Jannett and Clayton’s secret garden microwedding is quite possibly the prettiest version of a Plan B we ever did see! While the pandemic created a need to pivot their original destination wedding plans from Italy to an intimate fete closer to home in Paso Robles, CA, they found a true undiscovered gem in Chateau Robles with its European style architecture and verdant gardens. J+C brought their creative skills to the table providing many of the aesthetic elements themselves, and Noonan’s Wine Country Designs was there to enhance the venue’s romantic rose garden even further with fresh, unique blooms in peach + cream hues. Aren’t’ those butterfly ranunculus just darling? Kelley Williams shares her stunning gallery below – images replete with poetry, emotion and tenderness. We can’t wait for you to see more!
From the Photographer, Kelley Williams: This California couple had to cancel their wedding in Italy and opted for an Italian inspired garden wedding near home in Paso Robles, CA. This real wedding with soft romantic touches of blush, cream, and yellow is sure to inspire couples that have had to change their plans and opt for chic micro weddings.
Jannett and Clayton are such a creative couple, they designed their own invitation and vow books and the bride had all the women in her family wear a champagne colored attire. After doing a sweet first look the couple read their vows in private before heading outside into the garden for their wedding ceremony which included only their family members in attendance.
Two violinists played while everyone drank champagne and gave well wishes to the couple and they had their first dance right in front of the rose garden. While the guest sat down to dinner the couple explored the property taking sunset pictures.
Secret garden microwedding bliss! If you’re looking for more European style wedding venues in the US, be sure to check out this plum + aubergine elopement at The Olana in Texas next.
