We are such huge fans of pairing naturally beautiful surroundings with intimate celebrations full of sentimental details…so of course, this wedding had it all! Stephanie and Drew have been together for 10 years (they even displayed their high school prom photo together!) and were married earlier this summer at the Ranch House at Del Sur, a private home on a countryside cliff, just a few blocks away from Stephanie’s parent’s home. I absolutely loved working with these two laid back and humble souls  throughout their Partial Planning experience, where design was the focus of their wedding planning. Stefanie is a curator of museum store collections, so her attention to detail and eye for design was a breath of fresh air!  We focused on melding traditional romantic aesthetics with whimsical garden elements to create an elegant backyard soiree. She even created the stationery and signage herself! Their ceremony was given by a friend of the family, followed by bride and groom portraits at Stephanie’s parent’s home – which is also a mini vineyard (thus, the “Z” wine!), followed by cocktails and acoustic music on the property’s grass lawn, ending the evening with a dessert display of donuts & cake! I love that  Stephanie and Drew were able to trust my recommendations and work with vendors that I not only adore, but that were a truly perfect fit for their style! It made the day (and planning) so relaxed from start to finish. I miss these two and their wedding planning so so much, but wish them nothing but the best in the adventures to come!
