I technically 'met' Kirsten via Skype, for our first bridal consultation. We chatted about San Diego and wedding details. She proudly stated that their wedding colors were an homage to Tom's Dutch culture and love for soccer. " Our wedding colors are orange and white. It's kind of an obnoxious orange," she giggled.
Hmmm. Obnoxious orange? I wasn't sure what to expect. Nobody had described their wedding colors as obnoxious before....
On July 12th, I walked up the garden path at Twin Oaks Garden Estate and saw the most beautiful wedding venue. Vibrant trees, trickling fountains and colorful gardens in every direction. There is no shortage of lovely, romantic details at Twin Oaks.
As I approached the sweet yellow school house that has been transformed into a beautiful bridal suite, I see the wonderful staff putting the finishing touches on the reception area. Pops of vibrant orange were showcased by gorgeous tulip centerpieces, decorative branches and hanging chandeliers beneath a draped white ceiling. There was nothing obnoxious about this wedding.....
It was gorgeous in every way.
Kirsten arrived with a big smile and her sweet dimples prominent on her face. Only a couple hours until she would marry the man of her dreams....
A big Thank You to all the people who made this wedding so beautiful!

Do you love this beautiful garden wedding venue? Not only is Twin Oaks gorgeous, but they have a sister site called Green Gables Wedding Estate. It is just as lush and full of lovely details as Twin Oaks Gardens and it's also centered around an old school house which has been transformed into the most elegant bridal suite. Check out one of our Green Gables weddings here.
