Mahaley and Joe’s wedding shows us something we don’t see too often here on KV, the intimacy and preciousness of elopements! Their California woodland elopement was true to styling done right by Tan Weddings and Events.

California Woodland Elopement

Tan Weddings and Events planned an elopement package for the couple with everything that they envisioned, including a pretty cake hand-painted with just the right color of red to match the groom’s tie, a water-colored elopement announcement, customized ceremony words, blush and maroon florals with succulent accents, local sparkling wine toast, and time to capture all of the details with the photographer.

“We always wanted simple and intimate and somewhere beautiful. ..we’ve both always wanted to go to Cali and the fits us and the tree company 🙂 As for the colors I just wanted something simple and a color of red tie so the manly man still feels manly lol 🙂 Went with the groom’s shirt color of light blue as well to keep the July colors red white and blue alive. My dress was ivory in color and shoes were champagne.”

Wedding Attire

“My 2nd dress I tried on the Friday before I left on Mondays flight for Cali (yes I waited till last minute!) Fit like a Glove! Went to David’s Bridal for the dress and Joe chose a Michael Strahan suit vest and tie and shoes.”
