We love this elegant, chic California wedding. Grand and comfortable at the same time, Lauren of Downey Street Events did a beautifully en-pointe job bringing this lovely affair to life!
What we appreciate so much about this delightful occasion is how its clear elegance embodies an easy calm. It’s a style that’s certainly deliberate, yet completely genuine and ultimately warm.
The Italian flair also brings a welcoming, family-oriented feeling to the entire event. The colors are natural, but they feel like they account for an entire spectrum within the cool slate blues, ivories, and beiges. The venue inspires an ambiance of grandness but, again, remains completely accessible in feel.
While the details come across as almost effortless, they’re truly remarkable. Check out the olive branches with gold accents on their leaves and berries. The lanterns in the lounge area also add quite a bit of style to the scene without being overbearing or too loud.
The florals by Cherries Flowers are the perfect “icing on the cake” for the design. They bring out the essence of the event’s ethos — an easy, gorgeous elegance. Some elements even give a hint of a nod to southern charm, like the old car, the columns in the venue, and the cocktail fountain area.
All of these design components come together to create a one-of-a-kind, effortlessly elegant and comfortably warm wedding. Enjoy!
