Calling all romantics: Lauren and Edmond’s golden California wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch will have your wedding Pinterest board filled with so much inspiration! Encore Event Design helped the couple pull off their vision with stunning floral installations, modern touches, and decor that will leave you swooning. The floral arrangements Unique Floral Designs created for this day were an absolute dream—we’re obsessed with the flower wall ceremony backdrop, as well as Lauren’s long-stemmed bouquet with simple and elegant white roses. If chic bridal style is what you’re looking for, look no further than this crew. Lauren looked positively stunning in her long-sleeve Galia Lahav gown, and we love that her girls were also dressed in white! We’re feeling grateful the talented Jordan Voth was there to capture all of the magic and sweet, emotional moments.
Lauren & Edmond
Hummingbird Nest Ranch, California
I wore the “Bella” gown by Galia Lahav. It was a dress beyond my wildest dreams. I had tried on many other gowns by amazing designers, but none of them made me feel as beautiful as this one did. My bridesmaids wore Ivory dresses by Katie May Collection. I loved the concept of bridesmaids in Ivory, because it was bold and different. All the dresses were the same color, but different style. They each chose which style they wanted to wear which made it extra special.
We always knew wanted an outdoor venue. Hummingbird Nest Ranch checked all the boxes. It was such a beautiful property with plenty of greenery and beautiful architecture. The flow from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception made it effortless for guests. And while it had plenty of beauty on its own, it also was completely customizable. There were no major restrictions from a design perspective. We really had free range to bring in all our lighting, flowers, music and decor.
We read our vows to each other out loud during the ceremony. Both of us had written from the heart, but also mixed things up with some inside jokes. It made for a very entertaining moment, and one neither us nor our guests will forget.
We really wanted our wedding to feel magical. I turned to Pinterest and Instagram for all my wedding day dream inspo, and worked tirelessly with my vendors to bring my interpretation of them to life. Our wedding had a very elegant style but with personality. We stuck with neutral colors (light grey table cloths, ivory roses, and dark greenery).
