Real Wedding

 

The wedding story of Aaron and Lynnea is full of twists, turns and surprises, but the best surprise of all was announced during the wedding reception (spoiler alert!). These two love birds brought a blizzard of love and energy to this event from the moment they walked in the door. We loved working with these two and it was such an honor to help them bring this day to fruition. We're also forever thankful to the homemade candles that Aaron gifted us! We hope you enjoy this stroll through memory lane!

Jamie & Cody's Romantic Day at The Carlsbad Windmill

By Cassie Allinger on Oct 23, 2020 6:48:00 PM

Real Wedding

 

We love seeing how our venues transform each time they host an event, adapting to take on the style, story and character of the theme of the event. In the story of Jamie and Cody's wedding day, they brought a unique sense of light, joy and romance to the space that we absolutely adore. The color palette was communicated almost exclusively through florals: white and light pink roses, light greenery, and blue-green succulentsand it couldn't have been more magical. Join us as we commemorate this absolutely splendid wedding at the gorgeous The Carlsbad Windmill in North County, San Diego.

We've known Cody for quite some time, and we were thrilled when he wanted to celebrate his marriage with our team at The Orchard. The entire family holds this venue close to their hearts, making this wedding an extra special honor to host!
