Fairytale Garden Wedding: Jacqueline + Kyle

fairytale wedding

There’s nothing we love more than following along on our rad GWS couples’ love journeys! From the engagement, to the wedding, it’s so much fun to feel a part of such important + amazing milestones. You may remember Jacqueline + Kyle’s romantic Sausalito engagement shoot we featured a while back, which was captured perfectly by the lovely Meg Perotti. As soon as we saw how thoughtful + dreamy that session was, we’ve been waiting in anticipation to see (and share!) their wedding day. We knew it’d be gorge!

Jacqueline + Kyle had been dating for 5 years when Kyle asked Jacquie to marry him while on vacation in the south of France. He arranged to have a surprise dessert for two served in a medieval castle spire, where he asked Jacqueline in French if she would be his wife… of course she said yes!!

The inspiration for their wedding, which was designed beautifully by Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree, was sparkly-eclectic, with an understated, romantic palette of silver + white, accented by greys, nudes + blush tones. Jacqueline had a cameo in the movie Alice in Wonderland, which is also one of her all time favorite stories, and that played a big role in the styling of their gorgeous fairytale garden wedding, held at Franciscan Gardens San Juan Capistrano, California. Take a peek…

fairytale wedding details


From YelenaTheir reception featured a live 90’s band, a miniature unicorn, a cotton candy machine, and a father/daughter dance with glittered top hats (her dad used to have tea parties with her when she was a little girl, and she always made him wear a sparkly top hat). As a counterpoint to the girly Wonderland lounge, Kyle, the groom, had his own Gentleman’s lounge to hang out in, complete with leather tufted sofas, a scotch tasting bar and spicy bar snacks.

Woodland Heart Wedding Inspiration

stained glass heart

If there’s one thing we LOVE here at GWS, it’s hearts! And with Valentine’s Day being right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to share this pretty watercolor wedding inspiration (which features hearts galore!) with you all today. There are lots of sweet ideas to steal from this creative shoot that would work perfectly for a bridal shower, Valentine’s Day brunch with your girlfriends, or a dreamy, romantic wedding celebration! Let’s hear more about it from Michelle of Untamed Heart Photography:

I teamed up with Katie from Simply and Forever to come up with a shoot that would transcend any season and provide the perfect palette for the heart of a wanderer. Deep purples and pinks did just that, accented with soft blue hues and a deep moody navy. We loved the stained glass-like heart from the invite from Katie Kemp Stationery + Event Styling, so we went to a local glass shop and had them custom make a plexi-glass heart which I then used cellophane to make stained glass shapes, like in the invitation heart. The was the perfect backdrop to the ceremony once we strung it from the trees…

The florals by Peacock Blooms are pretty killer! This bouquet definitely portrays a painted, watercolor-like feel.

Get the Look: A Romantic Garden Party Wedding

Get the Look Romantic Garden Party

Planning a spring wedding? We created a pretty inspiration board for a super chic Garden Party Wedding. I’m loving this palette of blush, mint, gray and rose gold. This Vintage Silk Wedding Dress from Ann Taylor is the perfect garden party gown and paired with the Magnolia Bloom Headband, what could be sweeter?! I also love bridesmaids in different shades and Ann Taylor has so many pretty styles for your ladies in the perfect spring pastel colors. Are any of you planning a garden party wedding?
