This Fall wedding in Paso Robles, California was an absolute fairytale, complete with a castle for a reception venue (Tooth & Nail Winery). From the flowers on the tables to the handwritten signs, everything was artfully crafted by the vendors to create this magical evening.

The couple, Gladys and Colin, showed what true love really is and that the distance between them is only a number. With a packed venue filled with friends and families from all stages of their lives to share the happiness that brought them together.

The couple was masterfully captured in time against a warm sunset and fall vineyard by Blake Andrews of SLOtography, giving them the iconic photos seen only in movies and dreams.

Colton and Jessa of Fox Jump Cinematics were with the couple from dusk till dawn, capturing the most beautiful and subtle details that were easily missed by most. They were able to combine heartfelt words and genuine emotion to tell the couple’s non-traditional love story. Fox Jump Cinematics was able to highlight the raw emotion of the first look between the bride and her father. It is guaranteed to bring tears to your eyes!

Both the photography and videography teams surpassed all expectations and gave the couple cherished memories to relive and celebrate this day.

Rows of industrial-style tables that had a combination of dark wood with metal details lined the inside and outside of the castle. They were accented with simple, yet elegant white floral arrangements with greenery by Sandra Calicchio.

The bride herself incorporated the navy blue and gold theme when creating the programs and gift boxes for the guests, complete with M&M’s with pictures of the newlyweds on each one.

The grand staircase and large cathedral doors of Tooth and Nail created a unique ambiance for all those in attendance. The indoor and outdoor spaces of the venue were great options to have for the guests, as it allowed for both dancing and conversation. Mary Bruner of Tooth and Nail flawlessly coordinated the reception, combining her professionalism and her eye for detail.

Popolo Catering provided delicious appetizers, dinner, and dessert for the guests that were artfully crafted by their culinary team.

DJ Richard kept everyone of all ages on the dance floor and smoothly transitioned all of the night’s events.

November 10, 2018 was truly the perfect start to Gladys and Colin’s happily ever after.
