Eclectic Garden Wedding Inspiration by Megan Sorel

This couple celebrated their wedding day in front of family and friends along the seaside cliffs at Bacara Resort and Spa. The bride donned a fitted lace wedding dress and wore a flower crown of jasmine in her hair. Her classic white wedding bouquet by Camellia Floral Design featured more jasmine, peonies, clematis, and tweedia.

Ceremony was marked by an oversized wood cross that was decorated with lush florals including garden roses and more trailing jasmine vine. A full choir was brought in to sing the ceremony recessional and processional music and helped create the feeling of an outdoor church. Afterwards, the couple took some time with photographer Megan Sorel and took some bridal portraits on the beach at Bacara.

For cocktail hour, the design was more masculine, with substantial wood furniture from Elan Event Rentals and wild green garlands with eucalyptus, lotus pods and scabiosa. Oh yes, and then there was that teepee for the bar, truly a one of a kind design element!

For dinner, the Bacara ballroom hosted the reception which featured long family style tables with garlands mixed with round tables and funky lounge vignettes. Tall taper candles in glass added a romantic glow, and bright pink peonies added a pop of color.

Special thanks to photographer, Megan Sorel, for sharing this wedding and wedding planner, Alexandra Kolendrianos , for her lovely production and event design skills.
