So, let’s embark on this enchanting journey together!

The Love Story: A Campus Connection

Alexa and Zach’s love story began right on the campus of Cal Poly. Fate brought them together at the dorms, where their journey of love and companionship began. Alexa works as a pediatric occupational therapist for SLO County, while Zach is on the path to becoming a Physician Assistant. Currently, he’s working at the first CHC (the Delta Health Center) in Mississippi for the next 6 months. Their shared interests include paddle boarding, scuba diving, visiting wineries, golfing, and even enjoying the drive-in theater experience.

The Proposal

Now, let’s talk about their proposal story – a tale that’s pure magic. Picture this: a spontaneous sunset proposal on Shell Beach, surrounded by friends. The moment was filled with love, laughter, and joy. To make it even more special, they took a day off on Monday to visit all their favorite spots in San Luis Obispo, from fire pits in Pismo to wine tasting at our local gems, and of course their beloved Cal Poly campus.

A Nature-Inspired Cass Winery Wedding

Alexa and Zach’s wedding incorporated special touches that were deeply meaningful to them. Their love for nature and the outdoors led them to choose Cass Winery as their venue. The majestic oak tree they would exchange vows under, along with the surrounding vineyards, captured the essence of their shared passions.

Picture-Perfect Wedding Day Style

On their highly anticipated wedding day, Alexa radiated timeless elegance in a stunning Moondance Bridal gown, captivating onlookers with a style that effortlessly combined sophistication and grace. Zach complemented her radiant presence by donning a cream suit, beautifully harmonizing with the gorgeous rust-colored hues of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Together, they crafted a flawless ensemble, a true reflection of their distinctive styles, and painted a captivating tableau of love and unity.

A Palette of Warm Fall Colors

Immersed in the essence of autumn, their celebration embraced a delightful palette featuring warm copper, rustic rust, and earthy neutrals. This curated blend captured the vibrant hues of the season, creating a visually stunning setting that perfectly encapsulated the cozy and fall-inspired vibe they had envisioned.

Heartfelt Moments 

One of the standout moments of the day was when Alexa walked down the aisle hand in hand with both her father and stepfather – a touching symbol of the love and unity within their family. The couple exchanged heartfelt vows that left not a dry eye in sight.

Crafting Love in Every Detail

The reception underwent a stunning transformation into a love-filled haven with fall-inspired decor. Rattan chargers and tinted votives brought forth a touch of rustic elegance, as the warm candlelight gracefully danced in harmony with the autumn theme. And, of course, the crown jewel – a fall-inspired three-tiered wedding cake by Slo Cakery, adorned with painted leaves, stands as a true work of art, an extra layer of charm that elevated this celebration to unforgettable heights

The father-daughter dance became a truly magical moment, serenaded live by Dave Tate, who delivered a heartfelt cover of “My Little Girl” by Tim McGraw. As their wedding planner, I had the honor of contributing special touches, including gorgeous gauze runners and exquisite pillar candles that added a romantic ambiance to their sweetheart table.
