As they searched for a venue to hold their classic wedding, Vanessa Janzen (30 and a financial officer) and Adrian Pimentel (32 and a project manager) knew they wanted an intimate location for their classic wedding. But when they came across Twin Oaks House & Garden Estate in San Marcos, California, the outdoor space at the venue went beyond what they had envisioned. "This vintage garden allowed for beautiful pictures and projected a feeling of love and intimacy—not to mention how helpful the staff was during the wedding-planning process and the day of," Vanessa says. Adrian wanted to incorporate a touch of neon green—his favorite color—into the palette, so Sofia Pacheco of Flora Glamor worked her magic to make it happen through the arrangements, which included a variety of blooms. The ceremony took place on the lawn at Twin Oaks, where Vanessa and Adrian got married at the white classic gazebo adorned with pastel-colored flowers at the top. At the white-tented reception, guests sat at round dining tables set with silver dinnerware that had centerpieces filled with roses, hydrangeas and several other lush blooms. We loved one of the details that represented Vanessa's and Adrian's shared love for baseball: a three-tier white wedding cake decorated with red stitching (like a baseball) and topped with a groom figurine pitching to the bride.

The bridal bouquet had an abundant amount of pastel-colored flowers making up its round shape—ranging from roses to ranunculus and Vanessa's favorite flower of peonies.
The bridesmaids, dressed in light pink floor-length gowns, helped straighten out the long train of Vanessa's ivory dress. The overlay of tulle had an embroidered floral pattern, which showed as the women lifted the fabric.
Adrian and his groomsmen had boutonnieres pinned to the lapels of their charcoal gray jackets, made up of different-colored green succulents with a touch of elegance from roses or orchids.
Vanessa wore her hair styled down and to the side, with tight curls that elegantly bounced. She had a veil made of white tulle pinned to her hairdo, with subtle lace trimming throughout the entire fingertip length.
