California Redwoods Intimate Wedding


There are no words that will ever be able to describe how PHENOMENAL Maci + Tylers Intimate California Wedding amongst the Redwoods was. Their entire wedding was centered around love, God, and incredible people. The classic wood- sie look was something that will never go out of style.

The amazing team of vendors

It it always a breath of fresh air to work with amazing vendors. Seeing your couples at ease because they know they have picked a team of incredible creatives makes all the difference in the world. California Wedding Planner, Katie from Atlas Design Studio executed Macie and Tyler’s vision perfectly. There was no stone left unturned. From the simplicity of the ceremony space, to the elegance of the sweetheart table Katie left us all speechless. She worked closely with Amy West Floral to design classic floral arrangements that complimented the redwoods.

The invitation suite from Silver Plate Press blew my mind. You guys this is LEATHER. Yes, a leather invitation. She designed the invitation suite + the bride and groom vow books. Amanda is a wedding stationary genius and available world wide!

Lets chat dress(es) I cant get over the stunning dresses from BHLDN. Maci wore a classic from BHLDN then broke out the run fringe for her reception. Who doesn’t love a fun reception dress? How fun, and beautiful are the bridesmaids dress? The colors were everything and really tied the whole look together. The girls velvet dresses were stunning! BHLDN knocks it out of the park again!

Tyler and his guys were dressed head to toe from The Black Tux. Timeless, timeless, timeless! This is the first time my groom has worn a suit from The Black Tux and I was so impressed by how well it fit, and how amazing they look!

Last but least – hair and make up! I cant even begin to tell you how IMPORTANT it is to pick a hair and make up artist who is going to make you look and feel your best. I can’t say enough good things about Meghan from Kauai Wedding Hair and Make up. YES!! Maci valued her hair so much that she had Meghan come from Hawaii!!! Meghan glammed up Maci + her girls. She was there through her entire wedding day so Maci was fresh for the entire day!

Making your Wedding Reception You!

Maci and Tyler’s California wedding at The Waterfall Lodge in Santa Cruz was intimate and thoughtful. Two elements of their wedding night that deserve to be highlighted.

Cake – the tradition of cutting the cake was important to them, their cake was gorgeous + the best tasting cake I have ever eaten. Johanna with hansbakes is so talented.

Tap Truck – these guys are about as fun as they come. Fresh beer that embodied the California redwoods. It was the perfect touch to celebrate!
