from the planner: “On a bright, crisp and clear morning, several vehicles rolled slowly up the drive to the magnificent Del Mar Villa to create an exceptional and beautiful day for Kelsey + Danny. There are few things as exciting to wedding vendors as a gorgeous venue paired with a weather forecast that does exactly what it was forecasted to do. With the sun shining brightly, and casting the most gorgeous golden glow through the Villa, we got to work making some magic.
Kim of Swoon Floral Design joined us to create the most beautiful altar installation in one of the Juliet balconies featured on property. There was a lush, ‘Secret Garden’ feel to this installation, with the vines and floral looking like they bloomed right out of the doors leading to beautiful Oregon Wine Country. Kelsey’s bouquet was beautifully punctuated with roses, butterfly ranunculus, clematis vine foliage, and spiraea.
Using blooms found throughout the day, Kim also created some incredible centerpieces for our tablescape. Adorned in linen from Nuage Designs and decorated with rentals from Bridgewood Events/The Party Place PDX, designer and stylist Ashley Lachney had a vision for bringing the French Countryside to Oregon. “I wanted this to feel like a breath of fresh air – like you could come out to this table and feel refreshed after sharing a meal around it.” White sandglass chairs sat alongside the table, providing the perfect and stylish spot for guests to perch while enjoying a meal.
Kelsey and Danny both looked stunning in their white attire. “I believe in the architecture of fashion. A gown can speak for itself without a lot of embellishment going on.” Kelsey chose a simple, crepe silk dress by Theia, topped with a chiffon and pearl-dotted shirt by Madi Lane Bridal. Kelsey’s attire came from Ania Bridal in Portland, OR, with shoes from Bella Belle Shoes. Her makeup and hair was timelessly styled by Cassandra of Cassandra Kennedy Beauty.
Danny wanted to compliment his bride without choosing a competing color – so a classic white notch-lapel tux jacket with a black bow tie sealed the deal on this groom’s style. “You can never go wrong with a tux as timeless as this,” Danny said. Danny’s attire came from The Black Tux.
Other photographed details of the day included a stunning tall, two-tier cake by Dream Cakes in the style of the slate plaster-patterned linens from the dining table, and a beautiful invitation suite from Ink and Press Co. What timeless celebration is complete without finishing off the day pouring champagne into dozens of coupe glasses? “Some of my favorite shots from our day are of us and the champagne tower,” Danny said, “It was just such a cool thing to get to emulate from the parties you see photos from back in the day.”
