Franciscan Gardens, in San Juan Capistrano, was the perfect backdrop for Melissa and George’s romantic wedding. They had a vision of a romantic, timeless and elegant affair and achieved that look with blush tones, crystals, pearls and candlelight. The venue provided a perfect setting in a lush and private courtyard in a historic building.

The bride was escorted by her father through beautiful historic wooden doors down a petal-lined aisle. The intimate ceremony combined the bride and groom’s Italian and Greek heritage and a unity candle ritual.

The reception tables were adorned with blush linen, lace runners, multiple blush and cream arrangements in various gold mason jars and clear vases. Other details included custom cork place cards, crystal napkin rings, chalkboard painted wine bottles, and candlelight from varying heights of crystal wrapped votives. The cake was a gorgeous pink ombre with a custom crystal topper. Custom wooden signs were placed throughout the reception along with family photos in vintage frames.
