As originally featured on The Knot:
Sarah Bot (30, a yoga instructor) and Blake Foster (29, in finance) met through mutual friends, and three years later, were a newly engaged couple living in Newport Beach, California. The couple wanted to have a themed wedding based off Alice in Wonderland at the McCharles House in Tustin, California surrounded by a beautiful outdoor garden, making their vision of a fairytale wedding come to life throughout the elegant space. The venue was decorated in vintage dishes, teacup sets and antique decor with a color palette of light pink and powder blue, complimenting the enchanted atmosphere the couple had been aiming for. The pastel blue and pink accents were also integrated into Sarah and Blake’s wedding day fashions, bringing the theme of Alice in Wonderland more to life than ever before by incorporating the bride and groom into it directly. Sarah picked an elegant powder blue wedding dress designed by Lazaro that was purchased from Mon Amie Bridal Shop, and Blake complimented the bride’s pastel look with a pink suit jacket combined with power blue pants. Brunch was served at the afternoon occasion, complete with organic blended teas, apple cider cocktails mixed with Fireball and a donut bar filled with sweets and treats, in addition to the whimsical floating cake by Sweet Traders bakery.
We layered linens to add a whimsical effect for this Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. Our Vintage Lace Runner is used and our Button Taffeta in Blush was used as the top layer. Shantung Blush was used as the second layer and 5th Ave in Blush was also peeking through as the bottom layer. The napkins were Shantung in Ice Blue.
