Kalista + Kyle: A Romantic Eco-Friendly Arts Center Wedding by Sequins & Candy Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sometimes, it all starts with the dress. Jenny Packham’s ‘Eden’ gown was the main source of inspiration for Kalista and Kyle’s whimsical California wedding, which took place at Sausalito’s Headlands Center for the Arts. The 1920’s-inspired nuptials celebrated Beat poets, library books, a love of beer, and all things eco-friendly—and we couldn’t be more in love with the unique spin on romance. Special thanks to Sequins and Candy Photography for sharing the images with us today! You can find even more details in the complete gallery.

Kalista and Kyle are the ultimate California couple. They met on a sailboat six years before their wedding, and, according to the bride, fell in love almost instantly. “We connected on our mutual craving for adventure,” she says. Planning their intimate arts center wedding was its own wonderful adventure—the couple created almost every decorative element of the day (including the graphic invitations and limoncello favors) themselves. They exchanged vows under a favorite quote from Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, and, after the wedding, planted the citrus and birch trees they married in front of in their home backyard.

Katie Powers Catering whipped up a fresh-from-the-farmer’s-market meal for the intimate reception. Vintage copies of the couple’s favorite books served as table numbers, and dinner was accompanied by a 20-brew beer tasting, for which Kyle created an exhaustive compendium detailing all the flavors. The bride’s mom made the one-layer wedding cake, and the couple bottled homemade limoncello for their guests using lemons from her garden.

The celebration capped off with a wailing rendition of “Proud Mary” played by a multi-piece jazz band. “It was epic to see the entire room dancing and everyone smiling!” says Kalista. Thanks again to Sequins and Candy Photography for sharing this unique wedding with us! Be sure to check out the complete photo set in our main gallery.
