We adore weddings that allow couples to demonstrate their personalities and what’s most important to them. Drawing from a relationship deeply rooted in faith, Caelen and Austin’s El Chorro wedding was filled with with small touches of their faith, heritage, and fun-loving personalities…plus soft florals and a romantic color palette! From the aisle decor, to the dessert display, each detail was well-thought-out, uniquely personal, and clear evidence of the couple’s love for one another.
Caelen and Austin selected minimal, yet very personal details to enhance the natural beauty of El Chorro’s Casa Paloma Lawn. Wooden boards hand painted with scripture lined the aisle, and the altar featured a large wooden cross built by Austin himself. The day was blessed with beautiful sunny skies which provided the ideal natural lighting seen in the photos here by Amy & Jordan Photography.
As guests enjoyed cocktail hour on Casa Paloma Patio, there were touches of Caelen and Austin’s faith and happy energy everywhere. In place of a traditional guest book, there was a large wooden palette for guest’s signatures and well wishes, as well as a bible and sign asking guests to highlight their favorite bible verse. Guests were also able to tap into their competitive spirit with corn hole games scattered around the back of the ceremony lawn.
As guests transitioned to the dinner and dancing portion of the evening, they were greeted with dreamy floral centerpieces by Sarah’s Garden. Roses in shades of pink and peach, shimmering mercury glass votives, and short wooden vases, all came together to create a romantic, yet slightly rustic setting. Caelen and Austin’s faith was uniquely displayed in the table numbers, which were framed photo copies of their favorite pages from the bible. The head table was distinguished by a champagne-colored ruffled tablecloth from La Tavola, as well as hand-made Mr. and Mrs. signs, attached to the back of Austin and Caelen’s chairs. And, with a final nod to their personalities and heritage, guests were treated with homemade Greek desserts, and a Greek cake that was almost too pretty to eat!
