As we’re getting into the warmer months, I thought it would be a great time to feature one of my favorite summer weddings to spark some inspiration. Francisco and Amanda tied the knot last year on a hot summer day in June. These two were so much fun and incredibly photogenic. They chose to get married at one of my favorite venues in the Sacramento area, the Vizcaya Sacramento Mansion.
Even though it was a toasty 105 degrees outside, the estate’s large trees, cool gardens, ivy walls and two-tier fountain provided a dreamy oasis. The mansion is known for the natural beauty and stunning architecture. The Victorian-era home has plenty of space to host a celebratory reception indoors, and natural light streams through the surrounding floor-to-ceiling windows in the ballroom. Outside, several courtyards, gardens, and a naturally-lit pavilion offer several flexible possibilities for a fairytale wedding.
For Francisco and Amanda’s wedding, the planners from Alluring Events Design did a phenomenal job of incorporating all of the natural beauty of the venue and fresh summer vibes into the wedding theme. Guests hardly noticed the heat as everything was so beautifully prepared under the shade trees. Playful, cool shades of teal, purple, and pink, and light blue filled the floral arrangements and table settings, and guests enjoyed delicious bites of fruit-topped tarts and chocolate covered strawberries – delightfully sweet for summertime!
Their ceremony was breathtaking. Opting for a softer summer feel, Amada looked stunning in her blush wedding gown decorated with ivory lace flowers by Hailey Page. And Francisco looked so handsome beside his bride, wearing a light gray suit and matching blush tie. We LOVED the flower wall filled with fresh white blooms behind them – so romantic!
Just like their flawless style, these two complement each other in every way possible! Check out the rest of their magazine-worthy wedding day below!
