Today’s wedding is so incredibly stunning! A gorgeous couple, perfect setting, handmade details, and all captured amazingly by the talented Hugh Forte. So much loveliness that I had to split it into two parts! Erin + Parker both live in New York, but choose to get married in California near where Erin grew up. As soon as they saw photos (and then were able to visit) the Parker Ranch in Trabuco Canyon in Orange County, CA they knew it was the perfect location for them. The canopy of oak trees + white lights, the serenade of chirping birds, the backdrop of California hills – they fell in love with it! Erin + Parker both have also always loved the roaring twenties; Parker grew up with a connection to the music and dances of the era, and Erin, the dresses and hairstyles, so this style definitely had to be a part of the day, most importantly in Erin’s gorgeous vintage dress.
Did the characters of The Great Gatsby ever take a train out west for an elegant picnic? :) That’s kind of what they were going for – a combination the rustic beauty of old California, the classy elegance of old New York, and of course with their own young + modern twists.
