We’re swooning over Sydney and Nick’s modern black tie California wedding at Kimberly Crest House! If you love chic, classic style with stunning venue views, then you’re sure to fall in love with every photo the talented Nicole Kirshner Photography captured of this incredible wedding day. Sydney and Nick’s vibe was pulled off through all the little details—from her custom gown made by L’ezu Bridal to the pops of color through the floral arrangements The Nature of Things beautifully created. Our favorite part: The couple’s vintage getaway car decked in the cutest “just married” banner!

The Couple:

Sydney & Nick

The Wedding:

Kimberly Crest House, Redlands, California

My wedding dress was a custom gown made by L’ezu Bridal in Beverly Hills! They did an incredible job and I was blown away by how it turned out! I drew a lot of inspiration from Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and several designers in Europe, Spain, and Ukraine. I wanted a very clean, classic, royal feel that would be flattering and timeless. They really brought my vision to life!

Nick and I will always cherish our first look! we were so nervous and emotional leading up to that moment of finally seeing each other that we could barely breathe and it was just really really special.

Photography and videography were definitely at the top of our priority list when planning our wedding! I’m a wedding photographer myself, so I knew the value of hiring the right team from the very beginning!

We chose Kimberly Crest House because we really wanted a historic mansion with a European vibe! We loved it as soon as we saw it! Looks like a fairy tale castle!

Wedding planning advice from the bride: Hire a planner or month of coordinator even if you don’t think you need one!! They are life savers! And prioritize photography and videography! Make sure to leave lots of time in the schedule for your couples session! you will have these photos for the rest of your life!
