Carle & Kurt

9.22.18

Carle & Kurt wanted their wedding to feel organic, not traditional. The couple married at Pine Rose Cabins in Lake Arrowhead, and chose to incorporate fall colors with the greenery they were initially drawn to. They kept things simple, as the venue was so naturally beautiful already.  Although it ended up being 80 degrees that September day, it couldn’t have been more perfect.

in her own words…

“Kurt proposed Christmas morning, at our house. I gave him a pair of Carhartt overalls he’d been wanting for quite sometime. So of course I made him try them on immediately. We were nearing the end of our gift exchange and he said he had to go get one more gift for me. He asked me to turn around & close my eyes, and then he walked outside. When he came back and told me to open my eyes, he was on one knee…in his Carhartt overalls (with no shirt). It was intimate, perfect, and so very us.”

THE LEWIS GOWN + LUNA CAPE | When Carle got engaged, the very first image she ever saved was Alexandra Grecco’s Astrid Gown + Annika Cape. She loved the simple, classic pieces but wanted to bring in a bit of funk and an unconventional element. It took three bridal shops, two ‘almost’ dresses, and endless opinions that she wouldn’t have the "this is the one” feeling, but she was determined not to settle.

“I finally made an appointment at Lovely Bride, and the moment I put on Lewis + Luna, it was game over. It was exactly what I was looking for, and I indeed got my “this is the one” moment. It may sound cliche, but it was pure magic. Everything from then on fell perfectly into place, leading up to the most magical day in the most magical dress.”
