We teamed up with Sarah & John to coordinate their wedding at The Groves on 41, and they were an absolute joy to work with!

It was our first time working at The Groves, which is an absolutely beautiful property nestled among an olive orchard, where they produce and sell their own olive oil. It’s SO good!

There’s a beautiful farmhouse and garden, where Sarah & John’s small, intimate ceremony took place. And, there’s a cute little barn with a patio where the reception took place.

We fell in love with the couple’s dog, Sebastian, who played the role of ring bearer!

And, we had an awesome vendor team, who helped us pull together every last detail to make this wedding a success.

I mean, take a look at all these gorgeous photos!

Love Letter: “Amanda Holder Events is the best! Amanda and her team are literally the best, no hyperbole. From start to finish, Amanda was there for guidance whenever I needed help, but was hands-off when I was happy planning things on my own. She handled all of the challenging things (like working with the caterer to determine all their specific needs, or confirming our guest counts and timeline with all our vendors) and kept me involved at all points. She also has relationships with so many amazing local vendors, so she knows exactly who to recommend for you and your style. Not only is she amazing, her team is fantastic as well! They were able to take all my personal items and decor and created these amazing displays that were so beautiful – all without any input from me, which allowed me to focus on getting ready and being present at our wedding. They made the day-of run so, so smoothly, which allowed both me and my husband (and our families) to just enjoy the day instead of worrying or working. I couldn’t recommend Amanda more!” – Sarah, Bride
