Sherry & Robert's Autumnal Garden Wedding

 

Allied Arts Guild, Menlo Park
- as seen on style me pretty -

Who says that you can’t have a garden wedding in autumn? Sherry and Robert’s autumnal garden wedding certainly proves that wrong! Their wedding took place at Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park, and their moody autumnal color palette accented the gardens perfectly. Sherry wanted to make sure their wedding design didn’t read too girly (her favorite color is black, but she felt that would be too dark for their wedding), so she chose to incorporate deep burgundies.

Enjoy the dreamy images captured by Meiwen Wang Photography below, as well as the video shot entirely on Super 8 film by her talented husband Lenny See Films!

Sherry’s wedding dress featured an intricately beaded bodice and tulle skirt with an open back, which she paired with bejeweled heels. She walked down the tree-lined aisle to the music of a string trio, escorted by both of her parents (also, isn’t her mom’s traditional hanbok just the prettiest?). During cocktail hour, guests sipped on drinks mixed up by the Bar Car while enjoying appetizers by Capelo’s Barbecue.

Their floral design by Hawthorn Flower Studio featured fall foliage paired with creamy blooms, which were balanced with pale grey and ivory tablescapes accented with gold. Sherry and Robert wanted a relaxed atmosphere for their wedding, and chose all of their food and beverage vendors from among food trucks they typically enjoy together. After guests dined on the garden patio, they were treated to fresh doughnuts and coffee from Johnny Doughnuts and headed inside to dance the night away.
