Christine Cater's event and floral design set against the backdrop of Carmel Valley Ranch is absolute magic, but throw in Carlie Statsky to capture the day, and we've got a full-blown swoon-fest on our hands. This inspiration shoot is everything you want from a California wedding and then some. Cater's wildly unique and romantic ceremony features a hand-painted, art deco–inspired aisle runner, ombré flowers, ghost chairs, and a circular ceremony altar made of soft golden pampas grass. The rustic wooden table set against the Carmel Valley landscape is home to a vibrant centerpiece and acrylic menus that feature gold calligraphy. Enter the bride, in an elegant, illusion-back Amsale wedding gown from Haute Bride paired with teal Christian Louboutin shoes, and our hearts are racing. We trust yours will, too.
