Hidden in Carmel Valley is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the state of California, the famous and romantic Gardener Ranch.
Only open to real weddings, this styled shoot here was an exception. Local wedding dress boutique designer and owner wanted to showcase her 2022 goddess collection, and Gardener Ranch wanted to support their good friend and agreed to hosting this styled wedding shoot.
With one real couple, and one model, we were able to showcase five beautiful wedding dresses that are so fine-art, elegant, and romantic.
Our florist put together beautiful pieces to showcase blush roses, ivory peonies, and some fall and winter style leaves to bring out a unique contrast.
The reception table reminds me of a French setting, with gold silverware, ivory china, crystal class, and a setting so elegant and simple, anyone should consider this table setting style for their upcoming wedding.
We even decided to rent a classic car, with the color of light teal, that really brought out the golden light and made these images become light, natural, and simply elegant.
Whether we photographed next to Oak Trees, Spanish Moss, in the gardens, or in front of the fountain with the hills in the background, this styled wedding was dreamy and the perfect inspiration for those wanting to get married in the valley of California.
