I had the pleasure of coordinating Natalie & Aaron’s wedding this last weekend at a breathtaking private estate in Fairbanks Ranch. It was somewhat like a secret garden with rolling hills, koi ponds, lily pads and lush landscape. Everywhere you looked, there was something to be discovered. Natalie, the bride, is the owner of the Floral Palette in Rancho Santa Fe and so of course…all the flowers were abundant and absolutely beautiful against the serene backdrop.

It was a gorgeous event and her bouquet was by far the biggest I have ever seen. I know Natalie got a work out just carrying that around!

I loved all of the hanging votives in the trees. At night, it looked as if fireflies were dancing above the tables.
votive chandeliers also hung in the trees and rustic lanterns were placed throughout to offer even more ambiance and lighting

Guest’s enjoyed the pasta bar and all the various food stations that were delicious and set with beautiful presentation by Barry’s Coast Catering.
I can’t wait to share more images with you by Defalco Photography and even more of the details of this event that made it so unique and memorable. Phillip captured some exquisite shots and was more than a pleasure to work with! More to come!
