With Heather Scharf Photography behind the lens, this home-spun Rancho Soquel wedding was all about elegance as well. Kellie and Dean wanted their soiree to create an environment that felt warm and inviting with touches of home throughout. Kellie loves succulents, so she had them in the bouquets, on the wedding cake, as well as sprinkled throughout the decor, and the mint green Victoria Secret bridesmaid dresses were a perfect compliment to the color story.
Kellie’s wedding dress has a special story behind it, too. She tried on just about every dress in her budget when her grandma picked out one and said with confidence, “Try this one. This is your dress.” Kellie reluctantly obliged and low and behold it was the ONE!
Kellie and Dean are an amazing couple. They seek adventure and enjoy the outdoors together. In fact, they made it their goal to climb to the top of every major mountain in California before their wedding day.
For their wedding Dean made a set up double doors for Kellie to walk through as she came down the aisle and at the end of the aisle was a fireplace and mantle with throw rug. It was so creative and gave everyone a sense of being a part of an intimate ceremony.
When they were announced husband and wife, Dean got to carry his new bride through the threshold! It was priceless! On Kellie’s bouquet she had an antique locket with a photo of her parents on their wedding day. Dean Loves the giants so Kellie had a Giants themed garter on and had a groom’s cake made with a Giants player holding a “Beer Bat”.
As party favors they had a mint green bike with homemade jam in the basket for people to take as they left. Everything was homemade and added to the love in the air!
Thanks for stopping by!
