Private Estate Wedding | Arroyo Grande Wedding Designer | Anna & Garrett

Anna and Garrett started off as desk neighbors at work, which turned into a friendship and bloomed into a loving relationship.

They opted for a small, intimate ceremony overlooking the hillside with their closest family and friends, followed by a very large party with all of their family and friends at Garrett’s uncle’s estate in Arroyo Grande, California.

The agricultural equipment garage was completely transformed for their event. You have to see the before and after photos (on our Private Estate highlight in our Instagram story) to believe it! It was incredible – one of our all-time favorite before and afters!

Anna and Garrett wanted their wedding to feel like walking into a romantic garden and with the light blues and whites used in the color scheme, the beautiful florals from Eden Floral, and the incredible lighting fixtures and draping from Draping by Kim the couples’s vision was met and then some!

To honor Garrett’s Japanese heritage the family made 1,000 origami cranes to put around the venue to symbolize the couple’s long life together!

Dancing took place underneath the clear-top tent on the dance floor surrounded by cold sparks. And the night ended off right with our favorite dessert…flaming doughnuts from Chef’s Table Catering!
