Inspired by European gardens, this elegant wedding—filled with soft pastel shades of whites, pinks and greens—embodied a romantic ambience that had us feeling love in the air. “When we found Calamigos Equestrian in Burbank, California, we were finally inspired and felt that it matched perfectly with our vision of an intimate, timeless celebration with our closest family and friends,” Olivia Wu (33 and a wedding planner) says of her marriage to Peter Lam (32 and a creative visual director). The color palette had guests floating through this celebration that felt like a dream, starting with the outdoor ceremony where the couple were married underneath a metal archway draped in white linens and accented with lush flowers, with a beautiful backdrop of the surrounding mountains, all captured by Jennifer Fujikawa Photography. Guests were invited into the Polo Room for the reception, filled with elegant chandeliers, overflowing pastel flower arrangements and gold-accented table numbers, all done with the help of Zoie Events. For us, it was love at first invitation stationery paper, thanks to the watercolor design that framed the calligraphy that reflected the garden-inspired theme of the occasion. “We wanted our wedding to be simple, timeless and romantic, yet full of fun and warmth,” Olivia says. “We wanted our decor elements to be very personal, and we selected items we knew we’d eventually display in our home.”

The ceremony took place outside on the lawn at  Calamigos Equestrian in Burbank, California, where rows of white folding chairs faced the wedding arch adorned with white linens and lush flower arrangements. Guests entered the space with overflowing pastel flower arrangements on both sides of the aisle, along with small potted plants lining the entire aisle down to the archway.
The bridal bouquet was arranged with a wide array of pastel-colored flowers—from peonies to garden roses and ranunculus. All the flowers were tied together around the stems with a blush ribbon that draped to the ground.
Olivia and Peter shared their first kiss as husband and wife underneath the elegant wedding arch, which was draped with white linens and tied around poles. The corners of the archway coming down the sides were soft pastel-colored flower arrangements accented with a plentiful amount of leaves.
