A Modern Wedding in California
Megan and Steve
Megan Hutchinson and Steve Ward's wedding featured a wine-and-cheese welcome to kick off a lazy, fun-filled weekend of golfing and wine-tasting that culminated in a sun-filled church ceremony. Afterward, guests danced under glowing lanterns at a chic indoor reception.
Peonies, lady slipper orchids, and roses in yellow, green, and white make up the bride's simply tied bouquet.
A sage ribbon ties a sprig of rosemary to the napkin, which was folded into a pouch to hold a printed menu card.
The modern fete was accented with hanging paper lanterns, tall centerpieces that overflowed with lush greenery, and lots of natural light.
Steve and his brother hit the pavement.

Megan's love for all things equestrian inspired the couple to hoof it, literally, to the reception.
