When Kenzie and Collin began wedding planning, they wondered if it was possible for a “Sophisticated Hippie” bride and a “California Cowboy” groom find a wedding style that represents them both? This wedding proves that it is not only possible, but that it can be done with true class and style.

As a perk, the bride and groom had the privilege of getting married at Kenzie’s family’s charming hotel, the Estancia La Jolla Resort. As a next step, the couple hired event designers Krista and Regina of Crosby + Jon Design, who were excited for the challenge and set out to creatively combine boho chic with a country western twist.

For starters, the couple chose to have a garden ceremony in Estancia’s authentic Spanish courtyard.  Over 200 guests filled rows of mixed rustic farm chairs from Archive Rentals.

The couple said their vows beneath a romantic custom teepee, trimmed with billowing lace and trailing botanicals in the couple’s color palette of plum, mustard yellow, apricot and deep coral… vibrant hues that were woven throughout the entire event.

As the ceremony commenced, guests strolled to an indoor/outdoor reception area where they signed unique guest books upon entry: a white guitar (to later hang in their home) and an oversized wine vessel, custom made by the Bride’s family winery.  Bluegrass music set a celebratory tone as family and friends greeted the newlyweds with signature cocktails in hand: a whiskey mule inspired by Colin and a vodka pink lemonade spritzer by Kenzie.

As guests made their way to the ballroom for dinner, the bohemian vibes continued. The designers from Crosby+Jon decided to “bring the outdoors in” and filled the ballroom with live trees; strung market lights; and constructed wooden pergolas over the head table.  The trees, lights and pergolas not only helped give space an outdoor feel, but also helped a vast room feel like a cozy, intimate space.

Rustic wooden tables were styled with colorful Southwestern patterned runners, copper charges, and glistening amber and amethyst goblets. The real stars of the table were floral centerpieces featuring big lush blooms and a bounty of seasonal harvest picks including squash, eggplant and pumpkins.  After a traditional cake cutting, the guests were treated to an impressive feast of desserts displayed in farm crates.

From start to finish, the guests enjoyed a relaxed yet sophisticated celebration, which genuinely reflected both of the couple’s personalities, making this night a true wedding style success.
