A Rustic Old Mansion Wedding at Sequoia Mansion in Placerville, California
Lindsay Baldwin (23 and a yoga instructor) and Niles Dhanens (27 and a mechanical engineer) chose a rustic theme inspired by their reception at an old mansion. Lindsay's favorite color is Tiffany Blue, so that was the root color of the palette, complemented by peach and coral accents. "It worked out great for our spring wedding!" Lindsay says. The bouquets and centerpieces were filled with soft peach, coral, and white roses and ranunculuses. Burlap sashes were wrapped around the reception chairs to add to the rustic look of the decor. Lindsay wore a Maggie Sottero A-Line gown with beading and lace and a subtle, sweetheart neckline. The bridesmaid’s dresses--cocktail length and Tiffany blue--also had sweetheart necklines to match Lindsay's gown. At the end of the night, everyone enjoyed a gluten free cake baked by Niles's godmother. "I'm gluten intolerant so she spent a long time researching the best ways to bake gluten free. It turned out beautifully and matched our color scheme!" Lindsay recalls.
