The bride and groom shared a special day bonding their love in marriage with friends and family in the organic and nurturing Herb Garden of the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. Surrounded by the smells of lavender in an intimate circular ceremony they requested their guests help to officiate their ceremony. Stories of uniting, falling in love and becoming a family were spoken by family members and friends. Alyssa gifted each of her soul maids a bride’s prayer before the ceremony. As the sun set into the Topa Topa mountains guests enjoyed dinner and dancing under an open air tent featuring cooling colors of whites, creams, pale pinks and blushes. The honoring and respecting of friendships and relationships was present on all their guests hearts

Based on the west Texas desert landscape, this muted sunset palette (with a few pops of bolder color for some vibrancy) fits in perfectly with textural elements that set a gorgeous scene.


Featured Rainy Wedding Day in Oregon with Amazing Style

While we're always fans of weddings filled with beautiful, unique ideas so that we can show them to you, we know that not every couple is concerned about the small touches or has the budget to be able to do everything they wish they could. On this rainy wedding day in Oregon, the aesthetic focus was on the couple's amazing style, a beautiful stationery suite, and a dainty bridal bouquet -- and it's perfectly fine to leave it at that.
