Daleña + Richard | Los Gatos Wedding Photographer
A CLASSIC GARDEN WEDDING AT A CALIFORNIA WINERY | Daleña and Richard met on Tinder! They are from two different parts of the world — Richard from England, and by coming to work here in the US, they were able to meet and fall in love! Daleña says, “I can see now, love really has no limits!” Daleña and Richard both love the classic, yet modern, black and white color scheme, set in a rose garden. They wanted to have a “modern garden” feel, and wanted to incorporate in the design their love of fast cars! Richard arrived in his own Aston Martin and they also played up the car theme by naming the tables using luxury car names such as Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Ferrari. For their getaway, they rented a classic, white Bentley. Richard’s parents and two sisters came from England to celebrate their love. His mom wore a custom traditional, ornate English hat, and gifted one to Daleña’s mom. Daleña also loved the rose gold color and incorporated it on their simple, but elegant wedding invitation from Minted, and rose gold bracelets for her bridesmaids.
Timeless, floral creations from Christina at A Bud and Beyond made the bride’s vision come together . Christina says, “Daleña had a very classic vision for her wedding and wanted only white blooms with accenting textural greenery. I used seasonal, all California grown blooms including dahlias, calla lilies and roses to give her the timeless look she wanted. The arch was a main design focus and was built by the groom. We designed it to look as if the greenery was already growing on it for a lush, natural look. The long dining tables were elegantly decorated with nothing but olive branches and candles.
