A Romantic Wedding at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, California

Brittany Rinella (27 and in sales) and Robert Papenhause (28 and in sales) wanted their coastal California wedding to be romantic—and was it ever. The stunning Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, California, provided a beautiful outdoor setting for the couple's ceremony and reception. Working with Hoste Events, the couple created an elegant evening that combined an intimate ceremony and a communal family-style dinner with sophisticated decor, including sheer white cabanas floating above the long head table, hanging candelabras draped with lush greenery and boho-chic handwritten wooden signs. "We tried to do just enough and never too much of anything," says Brittany, who paired her fitted mermaid-style lace gown with a delicate mantilla veil and blue satin jeweled Manolo Blahnik heels. Little details—like the basket of parasols to protect guests from the July sun and Spanish tile place cards—helped elevate the experience for Brittany and Robert's guests.  —Michelle Thomas
