This black and white wedding was full of love and laughter from beginning to end! Adorned with luscious greenery and lots of modern design touches, Kelsey and Emilie's wedding day at San Luis Obispo Wedding Venue Oyster Ridge will inspire couples looking for simple yet elevated design and a focus on friends and family. With planning and design from San Luis Obispo wedding planner Ciel Bleu Events and captured perfectly by San Luis Obispo wedding photographer Lindsey Gomes this wedding day was unforgettable!
"Emilie and Kelsey's first look was definitely one of my all-time favorites. These two are so laid back and sweet, and they just wanted to get married and have a fun party! The moment Kelsey started tearing up when he saw Emilie was such a special time! I also loved our time spent in the vineyard at sunset together! It's such a peaceful and quiet time to just relax and let them be together for a few moments!"
From the bride:
"San Luis Obispo wedding planner Ciel Bleu Event Design was hands down the best investment we made. She was absolutely perfect, so easy to work with, and made our day entirely stress-free. San Luis Obispo wedding photographer Lindsey Gomes was THE best photographer I've worked with (and I've been in 12 weddings). She was fun, made Kelsey laugh (which is hard!), and took the most stunning, natural photos.
From the bride:
"In the words of many of our guests, 'That was the best food I've ever had at a wedding!' We served the food family-style, and it was all prepared, at scale, beautifully."
Guests enjoyed a grazing table filled with local meats, cheeses, and fruits as they sipped wine looking over the weeping Santa Margarita views that San Luis Obispo wedding venue Oyster Ridge offers.
From the bride:
"Don't sweat the details. Your love, your family and friends are the most important part. It's so overwhelmingly humbling to have everyone you love in the same place at the same time. Focus on that. The only things people really remember about weddings are 1) was it meaningful? and 2) did I have fun? The less stressed you are about details, the more you'll achieve both."
"Lots of white, lots of greens inspired this wedding. We wanted to take a natural approach that was inspired by the surrounding landscape at Oyster Ridge, complemented by the bridesmaids and groomsmen in gorgeous black gowns and suits. Our most memorable details were the custom-curated San Luis Obispo wedding caterer Trumpet Vine Catering menu and the iron chandeliers that hung above the guests at dinner - which was custom-built by the groom's father - the bride and groom pouring champagne into their champagne tower of coupe glasses from San Luis Obispo rental company All About Events, the ice cream service from Negranti's ice cream truck, and the first dance to a song the groom secretly chose and surprised Emilie with. And I can't forget Paso Robles wedding florist Flowers by Kim, with her draping perfection in the barn, and San Luis Obispo wedding florist Adornments, with the most incredible floral accents in all the perfect spots!"
