Italian Inspired Wedding in Carmel Valley
From the decor, food to details, we designed Kacey + Shane's dream Italian-inspired wedding. The couple spends a lot of time outdoors, so they wanted their wedding to feel like a big summer celebration under the stars. They chose Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley for their venue because of its natural beauty, reminiscent of an Italian villa. The venue also offers casitas where Kacey + Shane’s entire wedding party was able to stay, along with fun amenities including bocce ball, a pool, and fire pits. The couple really wanted to show how important their friends + family are to them and having the wedding party stay at the venue was the perfect way to do this.
Guests loved the farm table seating and open reception the property offered. To keep with the intimate affair, the reception included an organic farm-to-table menu by Paradise Catering served family style. With a growing garden in Carmel Valley, Paradise Catering curates organic menus influenced by what is fresh, in season, and sources from local companies, if not their garden. This was very important to Kacey + Shane. Guests enjoyed the flavorful and local selections!
To create the organic and fresh design, we used a simple ivory color palette. Olive branches were placed at each place setting and a pop of greenery was added throughout the table arrangements. After dinner, guests danced the night away to celebrate the beautiful couple.
