Fall Northern California Redwood Wedding | Brandie + Matt

December 23, 2022

Love Stories, Weddings

This wedding felt so authentic to the couple! On Halloween day, Brandie and Matt’s wedding took place amongst the redwoods at Secret Gardens in Watsonville. The celebration was adorned with spectacular fall decorations in shades of orange and purple. Florals by Karlas Floral Kreations and a single long table made the wedding so beautiful and intimate. It was a magical celebration, filled with love and warmth, on a perfect chilly day.

Brandie & Matt Walked Down the Isle Together

They decided to walk down the aisle together, and that was one of my absolute favorite parts of this wedding! The altar was adorned with autumn florals, adding to the festive atmosphere. Their vows were so thoughtful, sincere, and deeply moving. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, and this really added to the intimate feel. It was a moment of pure love and emotion, and one that the couple would cherish forever.

Celebrate Your Culture

The wedding celebration was a very intentional affair, honoring the couple’s rich cultural heritage and a lot of thought put into what they would want on their wedding day. The bride wore a veil with marigolds, a symbol of love and prosperity. The guests were treated to pizza delivery, Pan Dulce, a type of sweet bread, and Jarritos, a popular Mexican soda. The reception that followed was a joyous affair, and as night fell the bride added a beautiful green cape to her dress.
