A Private Estate Wedding in Ojai, CA

Private Estate Wedding in Ojai, California

Sadie and Tyler got married during the chaos and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, which at first prevented them from having a wedding celebration. Finally when they were able to have this celebration it was an intimate yet epic affair. 

Inspired by the beauty of a spanish sunset Sadie and Tyler’s effortlessly Vogue wedding, married old world spanish elegance with modern sentiment. 

Vibrant sunset colors were woven throughout their wedding and floral design, and perfectly matched the Spanish architecture, and surrounding orchards of their wedding venue. Similar to a sunset itself the reception tablescape had a soft ombre effect. Shades of citrus yellow on end of the table slowly and naturally moved to terracotta pinks, dusty peaches, and finally burnt sienna oranges cascading to the other end of the table.

Just how the sunset turns its surroundings to dark shadows, accent hues of black were used in this design to juxtapose, and bring out the vibrancy of the sunset colors. Black is also a common color for catholic spanish brides signifying the bride’s commitment and devotion to her groom “until death do us part.” On the table modern onyx flatware, black shantung napkins, and an intricate black design on the plates created a beautiful black contrast to the sunset colored floral. The 18th century plates were Babele black by Richard Ginori and the introcate camille etched glasswear mirrored the plates old world elegance.

Sadie and Tyler’s celebration took place on a private spanish style villa, nestled on 40 acres of private citrus orchards and vineyards, overlooking the entire Ojai California valley. The colors of the surrounding lemon and orange orchards, terra-cotta tile roof, and adobe accents perfectly fit with the color scheme of their day. 

Not only did the orange orchards match with the color scheme, but also the Spanish vibe. For Spaniards, orange blossoms represent joy and happiness for the newly married couple and they also symbolize fertility. 

Sadie absolutely glowed in her newly released Spring 2023 “Gianna” Monique Lhuillier gown! Her cathedral length, intricately laced veil, added the perfect hint of Spanish heritage, giving a slight mantilla veil vibe without being cliché or over-the-top. 

Adding to the luxury Spanish feel, her hair was kept in a low side bun, with a beautiful, blooming peony accent flower

For the reception, Sadie changed out of her Monique Lhuillier gown and into a beautiful Sareh Nori gown, with a deliciously modern Hi-low hemline.
