Real Weddings: Rileah and Adam / Calamigo Ranch, Malibu CA

Rileah and Adam were married at the beautiful and mystical Calamigos Ranch in Mailibu. A big fan of Star Wars, Rileah wanted something a little different for her wedding. It was a enchanted, Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding in shades of purple.
For the bridal bouquet, we made a loose and wild bouquet of seeded eucalyptus, dark purple limonium, sword fern, purple hydrangea, and magenta peonies.

The reception table centerpieces featured sandblasted manzanita branches secured in slate stone containers and dripping with pink crystal beads, purple “wisteria” beads, green amaranthus, purple dendrobium orchid blossoms, and lots of lovely moss.

There were also lower centerpieces of sandblasted grapewood branches on a bed of mood moss with accents of glittery butterflies, sword ferns, and fun little things you’d find on the forest floor.
Additional details included a garland atop a small wooden bridge that crossed a babbling little creek and cute forest landscapes on the cocktail tables.

The escort cards were placed on a bed of moss highlighted by branchy candelabras decorated with moss and purple dendrobium orchids.

Instead of carrying bouquets, each bridesmaid carried a lantern and wore a single blossom dahlia corsage pinned to her dress.
