Athenaeum Wedding | Cal Tech Pasadena

 A luxury Athenaeum Wedding | Pasadena, California

This luxury Athenaeum, Pasadena soiree embodies everything a fairytale wedding should be, including an incredibly romantic surprise from the groom to his bride. 

Just after the ceremony, surrounded by congratulatory cheers and swirling rose petals, emotions on high, is when the bride first glanced the beautifully adorned horse and carriage waiting to take them away! A magical moment she will never forget. 

When looking for the perfect venue Rick and Flora knew they wanted a place with beautiful architecture and privacy. A place where they could get ready before the ceremony and also relax in to the night with their guests. They found exactly what they were looking for at The Athenaeum, a private social club on the California Institute of Technology campus. This gorgeous venue had us from the moment we walked in to the pre planning meeting. As visual artists we’re always looking for settings that will enhance the story but we also consider logistics. Keeping the couple’s experience fun carefree is a priority for us, and this amazing location has it all.

What a night! Rick and Flora’s love for each other was so contagious, that not a person in attendance could deny the joy and happiness that filled the room! Everyone was up and about, dancing the night away!

Roblar Winery Los Olivos | California Wine Country Wedding

Roblar Winery, Los Olivos | California Wine Country Wedding

Rolling clouds and the nostalgic sound of songbirds in the vineyard set the stage for Cassidy and Gavin’s incredibly romantic wedding ceremony.

Wedding guests gathered on the lawn at the edge of the vineyard sipping champagne and enjoying the view, as the couple decided to have a first look before the ceremony, to calm some nerves, and share a quiet moment together before the ceremony started. In keeping with an intimate wedding, the couple chose a close friend to officiate the wedding ceremony. Cassidy and Gavin exchanged their wedding vows under a majestic canopy of hundred year old oaks, like two sentient beings offering their grace and serenity over the ceremony.  

The wedding reception was complete with good wine (of course!) and exceptional cuisine. The wedding cake and beautiful desserts were designed and baked by another dear friend as a wedding gift for the couple. A labor of true love! Custom wedding signs and beautiful burgundy and blush flowers with succulent accents designed by Passion Flowers added to the overall charm of the day.

The highlight of the evening was the fiery sparklers that guests held as they surrounded the couple during their first dance as husband and wife. Displayed in tall galvanized buckets with tags that read “Let Sparks Fly” –Perfection! Congratulations, Cassidy & Gavin!

The people and the cuisine at Roblar Winery are exceptional and if you are looking for the perfect winery for your event, Roblar is a must see!
