Camel Hill Estate Wedding

Gosh how I loved this wedding so and how I loved this couple so!  S+B were married on their family's private estate and what made their venue so special was that there were camels there!  For their wedding, we collectively dreamed of a fun and bright palette of darker blues paired with blush tones, accented with detailing of natural elements.  We were so honored to have this wedding featured on 100 Layer Cake, see more of the details below as we had an absolute DREAM team to work with!

Drawing inspiration from natural elements of various stones, we created their stationery suite inspired by rock textures and brought in marble and agate to compliment this theme.

I loved everything about the ceremony space.  We wanted to make sure that there was a good balance of blues and blushes so we created their altar with draped blue fabric accented with the most gorgeous blooms by Huckleberry Karen.  We hung eucalyptus on the ends of the aisle chairs, accented with pink roses and had the most lush aisle of pink petals to add extra color.  The setting was so colorful and romantic and I just loved it!

During cocktail hour, guests were invited to find their names on personalized, hexagon marble slices, hand calligraphed by Custom Calligraphy.  This was also a keepsake for guests to take home.  We also asked guests to color in and image of a camel and write their names next to the section that they colored as a guestbook.  This was an homage to the cute camels that were on property.

Their reception took place on the estate's lawn that was centered around the pool with a gorgeous backdrop of the Santa Cruz Mountains.  We mixed and matched tables with complimentary colors and used farm tables for the head table.  Table numbers were hand calligraphed on agate slices and guests found their seats by finding their names on customized menus.

To my dearest S+B, we had the most awesome time didn't we?  I loved how you were both so trusting of us in what we do and in our design process.  You guys were not only so much fun but so full of love..you are the ultimate definition of our dream couple!
