When we say 'A Little Mermaid Inspired Wedding", you're probably getting the idea that we had mermaid tails and fish scales flowing abundantly throughout this wedding design. But let us tell you, that is NOT the case!
Camille and Jonathan first met while working at Walt Disney Studios (hello, dream job), and bonded over the fact that The Little Mermaid was their favorite movie when they were little! Fast forward a few years and they began to plan their wedding, starting with the venue! They chose to get married at Lago Giuseppe in Paso Robles - the most magical venue set beside a lake and mossy trees in the middle of wine country.
They hired us on for Design only, and it was only fitting to incorporate their love of The Little Mermaid (and all things Disney) into their big day. With a color palette of pale ocean blues, deep reds, greens, and sequined neutrals, we created a romantic setting loosely based on the Disney theme. We created table numbers out of seashells, Camille wore the most beautiful lace wedding dress, and linens were in various shades of blue. It was like a real life fairy tale!
For the seating chart, we painted our 7' wall pale blue, and hand wrote a romantic quote on it from the Little Mermaid "You're the one, the one that I've been looking for." We wrote guest's names and table numbers in gold calligraphy on real mussel shells, and attached these to the wall for guests to take home. Under these we created a faux seaweed look with dried pampas grass, for a fun underwater feel! This has to be one of our favorites, ever!
We put thought into each and every detail for C&J's wedding. See those fish shaped candleholders below? We sourced those specifically for this wedding! Jordan Voth captured every little detail, and we were so excited to finally work with him after stalking his amazing Instagram!
Thanks to a fabulous team of vendors on this one. It was so fun to re-live this beautiful day! See the full gallery, here.
