Wildflower Garden Wedding Inspiration at the Historic Ventura Pierpont Inn

Today’s shoot showcases the history of the beautiful Pierpont Inn, and the wildflower explosion in and around Ventura County. In a fresh floral palette that incorporates hues of peony, dandelion, jadeite, cornflower, forget-me-not and chartreuse, along with metallic accents in bronze and silver, it fuses vintage and modern design details in the most inspiring way….

I will let photographer Stephanie Ann tell you all about it…. “We wanted to use traditional elements and ways that felt playful and refreshing. A melange of antique tableware, vintage brooches in unexpected places, and unconventional seating arrangements in front of a traditional gazebo create a feeling that is at once, familiar and rebellious.

The florals were designed with a garden in mind, lots of lush, blooms and scents. Peonies, sweet peas and ranunculus with oodles of garden roses to intoxicate the senses! The greens are local pepper berry and eucalyptus. For texture, we used Queen Anne’s Lace and hypericum berries. These florals whisper the history of the Pierpont Inn and all of its glory.

Our beautiful bride dons an exquisite lace gown paired with a modern braided bun and accented with a cluster of antique brooches. Her makeup look is fresh and modern, ensuring the vintage accents look current and not kitschy. Our groom dons a warm grey suit with a blue shirt and blue velvet tie that would be right at home in a garden party of yesteryear. 

For our reception, the tables are dressed with jadeite plates, vintage silverware, brass and silver candlesticks and lush and fragrant blooms. Peonies, sweet-peas, ranunculus, garden roses, Queen Anne’s lace and hypericum berries.

The vintage theme is also picked up in our magnificent cake, with each tier dressed in alternating layers of pleated, blush colored fondant and vintage floral motifs separated by a golden band finished with a gilded profile. The cake is placed on a table draped with vintage linens, a retro bust and a hand lettered sign.”


Isn’t it lovely?
