Rustic Ivory and Succulent Wedding

The Villa in San Juan Capistrano is one of our favorite venues in Orange County. With all its natural beauty, there isn’t much anyone has to do to make a bride feel like she’s having her dream wedding!

Have you seen The Villa? There are so many elements that make it so gorgeous from the walkway entrance to the gorgeous offering candles in the chapel!

We used The Villa as inspiration in our centerpieces and the design we added to the venue; all natural and simple to create one cohesive look. We used a simple garland of torn muslin, burlap and ribbon as Sarisa + Ryan’s ceremony backdrop and smaller versions of the garland to accent chairs along the aisle. And for our tables and centerpieces, we used simple wooden boxes as vessels and filled them with hydrangea, lisianthus, brunia, astilbe, roses, succulents and gorgeous maidenhair fern. We also had some tables with simple candle pillars with accented moss and succulents.

The details Sarisa added to her day were unreal; so creative, cute and special. Each table setting included simple buttons with her guests’ name that gave the feeling of intimacy and care for each of their guests, The bride and groom had a subtle “direction and compass” theme with globes, maps, and simple quotes throughout the venue.
