Loves, this is what romance looks like: a golden-hued rustic meets elegant affair held at the ever-beautiful Cooper Estate. Think a stunning bride in Rose Clara, a dapper groom in bow tie and one of the most luxe weddings you will ever see; from the glamorous tablescapes coordinated by Kasey D Weddings to that breathtaking ceremony. See it all captured by Shea Christine in the full gallery.
From the Bride… It was a perfect day in February, where the weather was crisp and cool and love and happiness radiated in all places. Our photographer, Shea Christine, captured this day in better ways that we could ever imagine. She’s a dream to work with and I hope to be able to work with her again. I’m already planning and scheming a way to make it happen, ha!
Our wedding resembled exactly what we wanted it to: US. It was a night filled with celebration with our closest family and friends and the decor was breathtaking. I took a lot of inspiration from where we got engaged and where we are currently living… Spain! Our venue, The Cooper Estate, is a rustic, woodsy and elegant location and it was beyond perfect for everything we wanted. An outdoor ceremony, an indoor reception and picture perfect backgrounds for all our photo opps.
It’s funny to see that amongst all the nerves I had building up to this day, the moment I was walking down the aisle with my dad, the only thing that my mind and heart where focused on was Adrian (and the occasional – “I hope I don’t fall”). I couldn’t believe I was actually in this moment and I was about to marry the man of my dreams…. and then the nervousness quickly turned into uncontrollable excitement.
We wanted our ceremony to be a few things: simple, brief, and all about our relationship. We were beyond thrilled when our good friend and mentor agreed to do our ceremony with us! We really wanted an officiant who knew both Adrian and I – so it could be really heartfelt – and someone who was part of our church. There was no better fit.
During cocktail hour, our favorite drinks were handed out and the reception was filled with everyone on the dance floor. Just the way we hoped it would be!
This was the most amazing day of my life and I can’t stop smiling going back and reliving these moments (I seriously wish I could do it all over again). Our wedding was beautiful and the photos are a true work of art.
