The Heat is Rising! Kayla + Santi’s Summer Wedding

June 8, 2020

Call the fire department because these two are on FIRE!  Kayla and Santi are one sexy couple and their day was nothing short of fabulous! 

These two are extremely active adventurers (they’re both avid runners and love to travel together) that live in NYC. They escaped the fast-paced city life for a little laid back luxury here at the estate. 

Color palette: Give us all the BLUES! Smokey blue, mint-blue, turquoise blue.  Kayla’s maids wore several cool blue tones that tied into the pattern that her maid of honor wore. We LOVED the look.   The florals also tied in dusty lavender, soft blush and greenery. It was so pretty and worked wonderfully for the summertime event.  

Everyone prepped here at the venue and then headed offsite for a church ceremony. Following the i-dos, it was party time! One of their first priorities was amazing food, and we were happy to deliver!   

Here was their delicious menu:
