July Jewel :: Adrienne+Patrick

Photos by Tec Petaja

Wedding planning with Adrienne and Patrick was a creative dream and our team enjoyed helping Adrienne realize her wedding day vision of an unexpected, colorful, vintage-inspired farm wedding.  Adrienne’s bedazzled bridal gown and accessories (couture from Australia) with Badgley Mischka shoes are stunning contrasts to her colorful summer flower and succulent bridal bouquet (more on that later!)  An abundance of fabric bunting, colorful signage, BHLDN drink stirrers and celebration flags graced wedding cakes, cocktails, escort cards, and table numbers.  Adrienne’s bridesmaids helped make cute chevron fabric pendants for guests to wave at the grand farewell and Designs in Paper created a super cute, cohesive series of paper goods balancing colorful and whimsical (we adore the fun program stick fans.)

Adrienne and Patrick’s celebration was indeed an unexpected blend of elements! Guests enjoyed front lawn drinks before gathering outdoors in the Cedarwood meadow for a Quaker ceremony  and exchange of vows.  In Quaker tradition, guests signed the marriage certificate as witnesses to Patrick and Adrienne’s blessed union. Always lively, the Cedarwood barn kicked off cocktail hour followed by a fresh, open-grilled dinner by Chef Christopher and Las Paletas Gourmet Popsicles. Perfect for a summer reception!

Adrienne and Patrick encountered emotional challenges when Adrienne’s father passed away a few days before the wedding, but their loss offered opportunities to incorporate loving tributes into the day. Adrienne adorned her bridal flowers with a photo locket and cross of her dad’s, and even wrapped the bouquet with a piece of her baby blanket! Patrick lost his father a few years earlier, and we loved helping incorporate his collection of vintage buttons into boutonnieres and other décor.  Enjoy Adrienne and Patrick’s fun, intimate celebration with these dreamy-romantic photos by Tec Petaja.
