The open lawn space and the grand ballroom at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln, California, sets a romantic ambience for an indoor-outdoor occasion, which served as the perfect setting for Marisa Bruce (24 and a sales coordinator) and Mikhail Yarmolyuk's (26 and in law enforcement) classic, elegant wedding. "We chose this location for a number of reasons—beautiful grounds, convenience and excellent food," Marisa says. "We loved the idea of having a ceremony and reception at the same place, and wanted something that had a nice accommodating space for everyone." Clair Images photographed the pink and cream palette that enhanced the romantic feeling throughout the day, from the light pink, strapless bridesmaid dresses to the pastel-colored round bouquets and the cream wedding cake topped with pink sugar flowers. Marisa and Mikhail said their vows at the wedding arch draped with strings of crystals, then walked up the aisle lined with white petals and elegant lanterns. The festivities moved indoors to the ballroom space, where guests found their seats with white escort cards bordered in gold. Some dining tables were decorated with hydrangea and rose arrangements mixed with greenery, while others had rustic candelabras holding white candles. Marisa and Mikhail cut the small traditional wedding cake topped with pink sugar roses, which was filled with pastry cream and covered in cream cheese frosting. We fell in love with Marisa's choice of ivory wedding dress designed by Pronovias, which had an A-line silhouette and a sweetheart neckline that embodied the classic, romantic theme of their wedding. "I think the overall day reflected us as a couple with how everything was planned out, organized and demonstrated," Marisa says. "From our location, colors and venue, everything made it a beautiful and fun night."

Marisa wore a strapless A-line ivory Pronovias dress with a sweetheart neckline. One of the reasons Marisa loved it was its lightweight feeling.
Marisa held a pastel-colored bouquet on the day of the wedding, which was filled with a combination of chrysanthemums, roses and calla lilies. The flowers were held together by a wrap accented with a white beaded pin.
"The bridesmaid dresses, designed by Bill Levkoff, were light pink chiffon, knee length and had a sweetheart neckline," Marisa says. "For shoes, I let the girls decide on their style, but the colors consisted of gold and nude. For accessories, the bridesmaids wore chunky pearl necklaces with tiny rhinestones intertwined."
The ceremony took place on the lawn outside at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln, California. The aisle was lined with white petals and lanterns, which led to the wedding arch that was draped in strings of crystals and white linens.
At the outdoor ceremony, the aisle was lined on both sides with white petals and tall elegant lanterns. This led to the wedding arch, which was draped with white linens and dangling crystals hanging down the middle.
The flower girl walked down the aisle wearing a dress with a silver sparkly top that flared out into a knee-length tulle skirt. A pastel-colored flower crown was placed on top of her down hairstyle, and she held a small, white basket filled with petals.
Marisa and Mikhail shared their first kiss at the wedding arch that was draped with strings of crystals and covered with white linens. Marisa wore a traditional ivory veil made of tulle on the day of the wedding, which went nicely with her ivory Pronovias dress.
Dining tables dressed in white tablecloths were decorated with flower centerpieces filled with roses, hydrangeas, chrysanthemums and a variety of greenery.
Once guests arrived for the reception at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln, California, they found their seats by locating their simple white escort card bordered with gold.
"For dessert, we had a small cutting cake made and decorated by Whole Foods," Marisa says. "It was a simple white cake with pastry cream filling, topped with cream cheese frosting. Simple and elegant small, pink roses topped the cake."
