We see countless weddings come across our desks every day here at Borrowed & Blue, so you'd think we'd tire of them. But, that's never once been our experience. Why? Because there are always gorgeous fêtes like this one by Gilmore Studios to keep us totally entranced with their beauty and pretty details! Jackie & Mark married in the heart of Orange County, California at Giracci Vineyards and Farms, but you would never guess from the images — it looks like they were miles and miles from the hustle and bustle of the city. Combine the backdrop with the fabulous rustic-elegant decor chosen by the couple — we're talking wine barrel bar, pastel flowers, bunting banners, and the works! — and you've got a prime example to demonstrate why we'll never ever get our fill of weddings! We're sure you'll feel the same way once you take a peek.
From the photographers...
We met up with the girls Saturday AM at Jackie's parents home in Newport Beach. After the getting ready shots, we headed to the venue for the first look. Giracci Vineyards and Farms is a fairly new venue just outside of Orange, CA. The entire day was spent at the Giracci! From the first look, the ceremony, and reception — we were blown away by this beautiful ranch and amazing sunset!
Mark and I met through a mutual friend, but a little unconventionally, depending on what you view conventional. We first crossed paths at a bar, but didn't speak that night. Then, he found me on a friend's facebook page and messaged me for my phone number, so our first date was somewhat of a blind date. :)
He took me to the same spot (in Dana Point overlooking the ocean) where we had a picnic at for my birthday two years before. Mark ended up getting the stomach flu, so our picnic was cut short. He took me back there on June 1st this year and had candles, a huge bouquet of flowers, and champagne all set up on a picnic blanket. He proposed there, and then took me back up to the hotel we were staying at and surprised me with my family, his family, and our closest friends! It was unforgettable!
