Blush, Ivory and Lemon Ranch Wedding in Malibu, CA

When I received this wedding from Elizabeth Messina and Angel Swanson of Love and Splendor I died a little inside. It’s absolutely gorgeous! I love all the classic and well thought out details of this Lemon Ranch wedding and of course the whimsical images! These two ladies did a fabulous job designing and capturing James and Angela’s day. Here’s what Angel had to say about the special day:

“Angela and James envisioned a very classically elegant wedding, which would be all at once timeless and intensely romantic.  Although they live in New York, they wanted to host the wedding in their native Southern California.  Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, one of my very favorite venues, was the perfect backdrop for their affair. A blush-tinged palette of neutrals set the stage for the day, in shades of pink, peach, soft gold and a dusty sage. White lilac did the most incredible job with the florals, which were lush and textural, overflowing from a collection of mercury glass containers mixed with large tabletop lanterns.  To set the mood at the reception, abundant candlelight was utilized on the tabletops and grand chandeliers were suspended in the trees overhead.  I loved the juxtaposition of the natural, organic feel of Saddlerock and the luxe feel of the décor, which included over-the-top linens from La Tavola and carefully selected vintage pieces from {found}.  Elizabeth’s photography was the perfect complement to the feel of the day; her ethereal images immediately transport me to all the loveliness of this very special celebration.  It was an absolute delight working on this wedding and I am so thrilled to share it with all of you!”
