From the Decor Editor – A delicate bloom tied with a pretty bow makes a perfect place setting accent. And, of course, there’s nothing more romantic than soft candlelight.

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.
