The theme of Caroline and Drew’s wedding was “still waters run deep” referencing the sweet couple who met at a fountain and their mutual love for running. This led Amorology to marry earthy organic romance with whimsical touches of Caroline's Chinese heritage and chinoiserie where the east met the west, as a nod to the couple being from opposite sides of the country.
The color palette was reminiscent of the first blooms in spring: pastels of soft blue, pale pink, sage green, and accents of yellow gold. To play to the chinoiserie feel, Caroline and Drew were married beneath a brass open birdcage arch custom created by Backup Backdrops, adorned in florals by Plenty of Petals. Sprawling florals lined the aisle leaving guests feeling as though they were encompassed by flowers.
For the escort display, varying parts of copper piping (as a nod to running water) were laid out with white calligraphed names and table numbers for each guest to find their seat. The reception took place under a sailcloth tent out on the front lawn of the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. Fringe chandeliers and pendants hung to create soft lighting while wooden tables were draped in golden yellow runners with a mix of pink and white cafe chairs and velvet sage chairs. Lilac and sage stoneware plates with copper flatware and gold-rimmed blush flatware sat in front of guests with delicate gold-foiled menus by The Idea Emporium and cherry blossom table numbers.
A relaxed and intimate morning brunch followed with a "run away with me" favor wall that invited guests to take a custom printed cherry blossom water bottle!
