Flower lovers, have we got a show for you! And we say show, because the decor for this wedding is an absolute experience! Katherine + Scott, two long-time lovebirds, fell head over heels with the wild and organic beauty of their venue, Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm. They knew they wanted a greenhouse wedding vibe that tied in with the botanical aspects of the venue, so they brought in planners and designers Wild Heart Events to pull it off! Get ready for a feast for the eyes with ruffled blooms and fruit laden tablescapes. The couple’s photographer shares more about their inspiration:
The inspiration behind the design is what bride Katherine called “elevated garden party.” Despite loving neutrals, Katherine knew they needed some color to POP against the backdrop of the Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm greenhouse for their reception, so Wild Heart Events and Siren Floral Co. used summer fruits as a starting point for a palette of mauve + plum.
Are you ready to see the magic that Anna Delores Photography captured? Let’s scroll!
Garden Wedding Details
A lover of all things neutral, K wasn’t afraid to bring a lot of bright color into her wedding day! She balanced the bold with a more understated invitation suite by Swell Press.
This bouquet deserves a Hallelujah! Siren Floral Co. never disappoints, and they used their garden floral specialties to create designs that dripped with glamour. Appropriate for a greenhouse wedding, don’t you think??
Bride + Groom
The ceremony! Katherine said she and Scott were SO glad they decided to write their own vows. “To take a few minutes to talk about why we love each other made it so much more personal and real.” The couple also cited their live band, The Half Moons, as the highlight of the reception: “They kept the energy going and are just incredible entertainers.”
K + S are the perfect example of taking “classic” and making it modern. We love S’s blue Suit Supply suit up against the delicate floral details on K’s Alon Livne White wedding dress. We had to know more about the gown, and K was happy to share:
I didn’t have a big “a-ha” moment while trying on dresses; I left Los Angeles, where I shopped for gowns, with two different dresses in mind. About a month later it dawned on me that I was in love with the Alon Livne gown. My piece of advice: if you have the luxury of time and you don’t have that ‘gut’ feeling, take your time!I couldn’t have been happier with my dress. I knew I didn’t want anything “boho” (the venue was so rustic to begin with) and the Layla was the perfect mix of elegance, romanticism, and an organic-y vibe that I couldn’t even articulate at the time.

Newlywed and Ready to Garden Party
Decide early on which elements of the day are really important to you. Beyond having an amazing celebration with our family and friends, we wanted to host cocktail hour out on the bluff, have a live band at the reception, and serve dinner family-style. While a number of things changed throughout the planning process, especially because our engagement was two years long, we held true to those things. And we’re so glad we did.
Don’t Forget the Sweets!
Ok Katherine + Scott, you’ve actually taken our breath away with your greenhouse wedding styled to perfection! It’s clear you know how to garden party! The GWS team is wishing you many beautiful memories to come!
