At dinner, guests sat down to a beautifully calligraphed menu, which doubled as their place card. The meal was served family style under bistro lights and paper lanterns strung between the trees overhead, in soft, romantic shades of white, blush and peach. We designed an enormous paper lantern, over five feet in diameter, to bring the same light, airy and fun feel of the dinner space to the wooden dance floor.
In a perfect moment reflecting the romantic mood of the entire day, the couple shared their first dance under a towering, one hundred year old redwood tree. Katie wore her great-grandmother’s delicately embroidered veil during the ceremony, and changed into her mother’s wedding dress for a playful sparkler exit beside her new husband.
