Romantic Kestrel Park Wedding Editorial in Rich Fall Colours
THIS MODERN ROMANCE
Captured in the beautiful grounds of Kestrel Park, today’s inspiration shoot is a celebration of Fall! The fashion, that includes not one but two incredible gowns from Claire Pettibone, hint at olde world elegance and romance, the florals are lush, whilst the styling is both luxurious and contemporary… and it is all in the most stunning Autumnal color palette! Together this makes for a truly unforgettable editorial…..
The coordinator, CMG Events shared these words about the shoot and its stunning venue…. “Kestrel Park just might be the best kept secret in the Santa Ynez Valley. Located just 30 minutes outside of Santa Barbara, this exclusive boutique venue holds only a limited number of events per year at the private estate. One of the most stunning areas of the property is in a one acre “room” completely surrounded by a 12 foot high Hornbeam hedge, the Kitchen Garden within is only revealed after walking through the arched doorway and provides an endless array of backdrops in which to be photographed or stroll through whilst sipping a cocktail. Many of the iconic shots on the property feature their famous lavender garden. When you step on property you feel transported to a 19th century English countryside.
We decided to bring in a romantic fall color palette and make a statement with colors as seen in the stunning Claire Pettibone dresses who were the stars of the show. We decided on rich autumn colors for the suits that made the perfect accent to the lush fall florals provided by The Flower Method. We kept the details in mind from the most stunning rings from Trumpet & Horn to delicate and beautiful cocktails crafted by Pomp and Whimsy. All elements were captured beautifully by This Modern Romance and showed that Kestrel Park is the perfect backdrop for a wedding, no matter the season.”
