I'm no pro when it comes to wedding planning, but there's one thing that's for sure: Kelly McLeskey Dolata owner of A Savvy Event and founder of A Savvy Lifestyle is. She mixes the best team of vendors (as evident in this wedding!), and has a creative vision that sits comfortably with some of the top event planners in the world.
I can remember the first time I saw Kelly mix and match a place setting to fit a vision she had (at Oh So Inspired). Even though I call myself a creative and an artist, the result of her vision was something completely unique, and something I never would have dreamt up.
This whimsical woodland wedding is similar. ASE Brittany and Kelly were able to seamlessly blend an elegant wedding into a quaint affair straight out of a fairy tale.
The couple, Briana and Adam met for a coffee date after connecting via an online dating site. They didn't have much in common besides the fact that both were single parents, and had joined the dating site in an attempt to meet someone great without sacrficing precious time with their children. They immediately hit it off, and soon became a modern day Brady Bunch.
Adam proposed to Briana at a pre-Thanksgiving dinner in front of their closest friends and family members, and nearly three years to the day after their first date, the two families became one.
Briana, a publicist for Pixar Animation Studios, and Adam, a barber, added personal touches to their special day at Anderson Ranch in Sonoma by incorporating rustic accents such as an antler ring holder, taxidermy mice cake toppers, and an impossibly whimsical nude gown. Chestnut & Vine created the perfect arrangements to fit the wedding's theme, and the reception was made special with twinkling lights, rentals from a multitude of amazing vendors, and a beautiful cake by Sweet on Cake.
