Ojai Private Estate Wedding ~ Cathryn & Gael
When my friend Cathryn Van Breene came to me about helping to design and plan her and fiancé Gael LeColley’s wedding, I was not only honored but thrilled to be a part of such a special time in their lives. I have known and worked with Cathryn and The Studio Agency for over a decade now. Her work is stunning and many of my clients have glowed on their special day from Cathryn’s talented artistic hand. It was her turn in the spot light, although you wouldn’t have known it from her wedding day. Their request for an intimate dinner and subtle wedding traditions couldn’t have been better suited for this understated yet talented couple. They chose a quaint private estate in Ojai, California (the town where they had originally met). Gridley Ranch, a beautiful ranch with sprawling grounds and stunning views of the Ojai Valley served as their home away from home for the weekend. We chose specific textures for the table in a custom made fur runner by Joni Papay of Hearts Bloom, hand-made fur lined menus by Zenadia Designs who also graciously designed our stationary. And to top off our fur obsession, Chivari fur chair caps provided by Wildflower Linen to warm up the outdoor space for their New Year’s Eve nuptials. The fur runner sat on top of beautiful linens provided by La Tavola. Ventura Party Rentals provided our rental items and even special ordered oversized silver trays which we used as our chargers. And of course the day was captured beautifully by Joy Marie Photography.
