We love each and every gorgeous day that Michelle Garibay Events creates, and today’s California wedding is one for the books! Katie and Jason’s picturesque venue, Los Willows, was transformed with the help of Michelle, bringing in various elements to achieve a romantic and glamorous wedding day. Lush florals in shades of blush and white, pink and gold chargers, and stunning lace table linens were just a few of the standout details in this elegant design.
Katie and Jason are both athletes, and their romantic day combined Katie’s elegant side and their love for sports in the most beautiful of ways. Football was a common thread in all of the details, as Jason is the kicker for the Jacksonville Jaguars- even the dessert bar had football rice krispy treats! We love how Leah Marie Photography captured the day, and we can’t wait for you to be as inspired as we are!
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding.
Blush, gold, neutrals. It was a very romantic feeling with emphasis on gorgeous flowers, and some glam. The reception area was to die for. Our charger plates were a focal point with some sparkly linens, farmtables, mercury candles and rose gold silverware. The venue really complimented the vision of the glam, romantic and rustic vibe we were going for.
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
We kept saying we would save on other parts of the wedding and it never happened! It was hard to say nothing was a priority. We splurged on an open bar, live band, the florals and everything in between. The only item would have maybe been our cake. We decided on a small cake and a dessert bar instead of a large expensive cake.
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
I would say to go with your gut. Things start getting really stressful when you start second guessing yourself. In the end my gut feeling was right and wish I would have gone with it. You and your husband know each other best so stay true to that and remember it’s about you two and not what everyone else wants.
We can’t get over all of the stunning florals! And how amazing are the linens used all throughout the day?! Such a stunning romantic California wedding- congrats to Katie and Jason!
