Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga, Wedding, California

Montalvo Arts Center is our all time favorite Tuscany-style venue right here in Saratoga California! You don't have to go all the way to Italy! Melody & Jeff were one of the most adorable couple ever - just look at her gorgeous semi-structured ballgown with a french bustle and classic dropped shoulders - complimented by his smart clean-cut tux! Melody & Jeff wanted a wedding full of white and greens! With navy blue pops of her bridesmaids dress and hints of blush and gold through out - Melody & Jeff both come from a traditional american-chinese family so the color "red" is considered a "good luck" color! They wanted to included red in a non-traditional subtle way so we hinted at it in pops of red in their reception floral designed perfectly by Bellevue Floral Co! We highlight their wedding day below with different parts of their wedding that we love, all beautifully captured by the AMAZING Jenny Soi Photography! You don't want to miss this wedding!

Rebecca & Kyle made such a stylish couple! Starting from classic floral robes getting ready moments with her bridesmaids and Kyle in his stylish tux with his boys! They had an intimate first look at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve forest - just check out her amazing wedding dress train and lace illusion backing! On wards to the gorgeous outdoor ceremony - the Half Moon Bay weather was perfect! Beautiful white gazebo with Florals decorated by Flower Divas and the gorgeous bright purple flowers decorated with an amazing sea of candles in various vases, sizes and heights. Thank you so much for having us for your wedding - an amazing crowd!

Our Favorite: After the formalities are done - Kyle and Rebecca had glow sticks (necklace AND bracelets) strobe light batons and open bar! The party got started very quickly and lasted all night! Just amazing! Everything captured beautifully by Lauren Feddersen Photography

Soft Blue Garden Romance Wedding Ideas

From Wedding Chicks:... Leo Pham PhotographyTyler Vu Photography and NT Events decided to play with just one of the Pantone colors of the year with these soft blue garden romance wedding ideas. We think the result is an absolute masterpiece with their Serenity inspired color pallet and bridal gowns we wish we could spend the day in!

See it all here and then see even more when you visit the full gallery! There is plenty more for you to ogle and pin thanks to the talents of Leo Pham Photography and Tyler Vu Photography.

Using the soft color palette of Serenity blue with hints of gold, we wanted to capture the organic beauty of the outdoors while capturing the elegant and fun atmosphere we hope all brides feel. 

The hand-made invitations with gold foil by Grace & Charm Paperie were an absolute match for the overall inspiration; complementing the set with calligraphy addressed envelopes and vintage stamps sourced from The Little Postage Shop.

The Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon had the perfect little outdoor nooks for our photoshoot. The gorgeous Garden Terrace ceremony site provided an open area filled with greenery for us to set up and roam around for our two brides shoot. Using rentals and linens from A Grande Affair, we filled the areas with furniture and set up a spectacular table setting complete with candelabras and gold trimmed place settings. 

Keeping in theme with the romance and natural touch, The Flower House created amazing pieces for our set up including a loose organic bouquet with romantic blooms for round softness but also adding long and linear florals to give the bouquet movement, the stunning table arrangements filled with peonies, peach garden roses, and lavender and more. 

The talented Aimee Artistry makeup and hair design team created a natural and elegant look with loose, wavy hair for our brides. We were swooning with these beautiful dresses selected from Bo Lee Bridal Couture that included elegant lace-back details, a blush sash and a ball gown with layers and layers of soft tulle. 

To complement the dresses, One World Designs Bridal Accessories created beautiful jewelry and gold floral hair accessories especially for our shoot.
