An Elegant Vintage Wedding at Calamigos Ranch with Flowers by The Hidden Garden

By, January 31, 2013

At The Hidden Garden, we create a wedding day for the bride and groom that truly displays their style and personal touch. Starting with the very first conversation, we ask questions of our wedding couple to help them express their personalities. We consider ourselves “flower therapists” in this way :) By the end of the process, we are prepared and ready to design the perfect florals, tailored uniquely to each couple.

The Hidden Garden recently worked closely with Kelsie and Christopher for their wedding at Calamigos Ranch, located in the heart of the Malibu wine country.


We designed all of the floral arrangements for this gorgeous wedding. To ensure the look and feel of the wedding was cohesive, we also assisted with the decor. Kelsie and Christopher wanted an elegant and romantic wedding with a vintage vibe.


To carry out the vintage look and feel, we incorporated this classic sofa from Found Vintage Rentals just outside of the ceremony space


We adore this photo of Kelsie holding her bridal bouquet of garden roses in shades of light pink. You can see a glimpse of the bouquet handle, which we treated with lace and a vintage broach.


Because Kelsie and Christopher love lush flowers (mainly garden roses in all soft blush tones), we used tons for the ceremony site. It was a beautiful moment when Kelsie’s father walked her down the aisle, which was carpeted with rose petals.


Kelsie and Christopher said their vows underneath a hundred year old Oak Tree, which was decorated with ivy, chandeliers and cascading twinkle lights. The bride and groom, along with the wedding party, stood elevated above the guests for a grand ceremony.


After the ceremony, guests headed over to the tented reception. The crystal chandeliers, white drapes, and twinkle lights created an ambiance of vintage elegance.


We decorated the Sweetheart Table at the reception with lush pink and white garden roses, with a touch of natural greenery. To carry out the theme, ee paired the table with matching vintage printed chairs.


We helped Kelsie & Christopher choose their linens, chairs, table settings, furniture and other decor details. Every decision was perfectly planned out, and it all came together seamlessly!

Kelsie wanted the wedding to have a romantic touch throughout. We especially love this photo of them with their combined name, “Kelstopher,” printed on a pillow.


Kelsie and Christopher wanted to add a sense of nostalgia to the wedding, so they brought along a functioning ferris wheel for guests to enjoy! The ferris wheel, along with a mini carnival, was set up on the lawn at Calamigos Ranch. What a fun idea!


Everyone at The Hidden Garden has a real passion for what we do. Our wedding clients often become our friends, and we continue to share many other joyous occasions even after the wedding day has passed. Congrats to Kelsie and Christopher!
