Allure Wedding: Kate and AJ's Pretty Outdoor Fete

One of my very favorite weddings last year was featured on I Do Venues today.  I worked with LA couple Kate and AJ to plan their Northern California celebration for almost a year and I truly enjoyed every minute of it!  Their wedding at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View was on a gorgeous Fall day and it was everything we had envisioned.  Check out some of the beautiful photos by Gavin Farrington, and my description as seen on the I Do Venues post.

Kate and AJ wanted a traditional, classic, and laid back wedding. Their first priorities were fun and family, and they wanted to dine outside with candle light and strung lights that provided the ambiance. The historic Victorian The Rengstorff House in Mountain View provided the manicured lawns and brick patio for the outdoor ceremony and reception, The Other Woman catering company provided the strung IPLs and delicious gourmet BBQ and mac & cheese, and Kate and AJ hosted family and friends and plenty of kids on their big day. The overall look was fresh and pretty, with monochromatic white flowers and touches of clustered baby’s breath accenting the clean, crisp green grounds of the property. Gavin Farrington caught gorgeous golden light as the sun set over the water and reserve. The wedding was filled with hilarious and touching toasts, several servings of seconds, simple personal touches and more hugs, kisses, and high fives than I’ve ever seen before at a wedding. Kate and AJ were a dream to work with and they got their dream wedding!
