It is no secret that micro-weddings are here for the immediate future, but after we saw today’s inspiration shoot photographed by Ashley Baumgartner, we might be on board for the long run! Put together by Stephanie Teague Events, this shoot set amongst the gardens of Park Winters was exactly what we needed with lush greenery and delicate gold details. Take a look and see why sometimes less is more, even when it comes to the guest list…and see the adorable flower girl steal the show!
From Ashley Baumgartner…Amidst life’s greatest uncertainty, remains love. Love that can stand the test of time. That can stand the tests of this world. And can stand the tests of this period in time where we all face insurmountable uncertainty. And that’s exactly what couples should grasp to, the certainty of love. The certainty of love, and life. Happiness and humor. Family and friendship. And that’s exactly what Leslie, Lamar, and their precious daughter did during this time. Clung to love. Clung to family. Clung to friends. And chose celebration anyways. In this classically intimate garden inspiration editorial designed by Stephanie Teague Events and Taylor of Fleeting Moments Cinema, Leslie and Lamar welcomed guests to their micro-wedding, an ever-growing and much-needed trend in our wedding industry. An intimate affair for those closest to their heart. Their daughter. Their family. Their friends. The people most important to them in the world. And what perfect place to have it – Northern California’s premier private estate venue, the grounds of Park Winters.
Their guests and bridal party alike arrived at Park Winters famous inn to be greeted with champagne shelves from Lux Event Rentals and Design and a refreshing sip to begin the celebration. After being invited by a modern, black-tie themed paperie suite by Ashley Baumgartner, guests knew they were in for a classic, elegant and intimate affair. The grounds of Park Winters were only a tease of the beauty they were in for before heading to their garden view for a ceremony lush with florals by Le Bloomerie, stunning white and gold chairs, and the glimmer of sunset. In front of their closest friends and family, Leslie and Lamar tied the knot with their stunning daughter between them. A kiss sealed the deal and then there was certainly no shortage of reasons to celebrate with those that meant the most to them.
The couple, their bridal party adorned in blush-toned Bella Bridesmaid gowns, and their family returned to the lawn of Park Winters for classic cocktails and more champagne, a preview of the night’s desserts – a three-tiered gold-encrusted wedding cake by Baker & A Black Cat, and a few portraits with their guests to memorialize the company that they chose so dearly to celebrate alongside them. Guests were then lead to an enchanting corner of the property to their private dinner affair at Park Winters, known for its famous farm-to-fork dinners curated on property. Mouths were agape as guests entered the nook adorned with flowing greenery draping from an outdoor chandelier and delicately placed blooms. A table set just for them, in gorgeous neutral linens from Hensley and sleek modern chairs signified the start of their relaxed evening. Classic place settings lined with gold trim and a menu in a modern black and ivory palette gave a peek into the feast they would enjoy together. Blush and ivory florals provided a romantic touch to the evening’s soiree along with delicate gold and black details. Leslie and Lamar’s bridal party toasted to their love and their union of their family in celebration as the couple stole kisses from each other.
For their classic black-tie micro-wedding, Leslie and Lamar opted for classic looks. A simple and understated Goddess by Nature gown from Grace and White proved to be elegant and timeless, in combination with a sleek hairstyle and makeup palette from All Dolled Up Norcal. But a little bling is always needed, and Leslie’s beaded Bella Belle heels brought just that. Lamar opted for a classic black suit but brought his own personality with a velvet blazer. Their daughter stole the show in a white tutu ball gown complete with matching bun. Leslie’s look would not have been complete without an overflowing and bountiful ivory-toned bouquet, draping in a sleek ivory ribbon from Party Crush Studio. Although it was micro, it was nothing short of a perfect wedding day for Leslie and Lamar perfectly captured by the film photographs of Ashley Baumgartner and the cinematography of Fleeting Moments Cinema. It will surely be a day that Leslie, Lamar, their daughter, and their closes inner circle will never forget.
