Modern Meets Romance in an Old World Garden

AS Seen on Magnolia Rouge Wedding Blog!

Romantic, charming, and old world focused, the Franciscan Gardens inspired our garden romance with its enchanting and cozy venue located in historic San Juan Capistrano, CA. A clean interior, splashed with sunlight, and an old world appeal located steps away at the Mission San Juan Capostrano, the Franciscan Gardens offers a private, secluded backdrop paired with a Spanish-style garden tucked away in an outdoor courtyard.

Our color palette couples dusty blues and pale peach with white and yellow, accented with warm metals, and cooled with greenery and hints of viburnum berry.  

The florals join carmel colored Combo roses, Sahara spray roses, warmed with golden butterfly ranunculus and ruby glow hellebores to stand on their own against the white roses and ranunculus. A finishing touch of viburnum berry to complement the cobalt goblets and marbled blues, and finally the wild greenery spray.

For our reception tablescape, we paired simplicity with hints of watercolor textures and gold accents: ornate opulence in gold and sand linens coupled with blue marbled hushed tones and romantic elegance in dusty blue goblets with gold rimmed wine glasses. The hand dyed silk wrapped gold flatware lent simplicity and sophistication to the glowing tablescape.

The ceremony space offered an open-air courtyard, a clean and unadorned space filled with lush greenery and a soft glow. Framed the couple beneath  romantic café lights and fresh floral spray that surrounded the couple with blooms. 

Gold linear lanterns adorn a brass vintage table in the outdoor lounge paired with plush love seats, in a Spanish-styled garden accompanied with decadent treats. 

Our models bring their sense of glamour and playfulness to the elegance of the scene, laughing lightly into the golden-hour air around the historic Mission San Juan Capostrano. An elegant California beauty celebrating her love in a sun drenched escape.

Overall the shoot aims to bring together a fresh pairing of garden romance with old world charm to create an enchanting, stylish, romantic wedding inspiration with a touch of historic elegance, a clean splash of color, and plenty of pretty.
