A Classic, Romantic Wedding at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln, California
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."
