Real Wedding: Kristen & Chad

Lover of all things vintage? You’ll swoon over this real wedding at Green Gables Estate, a Southern California gem! 

Kristen and Chad’s real wedding at Green Gables Estate was one of the first at this historic landmark-turned-wedding venue. From the vintage furniture-filled bridal suite, to the elegant romantic gardens, this venue is the perfect fit for you vintage-loving brides. Nestled in the forest and surrounded by twinkling light arbors, fresh flowers, and tranquil streams, the secluded property is private and intimate. Bonus: they only book one wedding per day, so you won’t be sharing the space with anyone but your own wedding guests!

Many of the details from Kristen and Chad’s wedding were DIY – simple and tasteful. I especially love the mini succulent pots used as escort cards, which doubled as a nice favor, too. The cakes were homemade by a local baker, and the bride did all of the flowers and tabletops. With so much beauty surrounding the venue, not much was needed to achieve the elegant vintage look.
