An Elegant Wedding With a Glamorous Twist at the Gardens at Peacock Farms in Arroyo Grande, California
The lush landscaping at the Gardens at Peacock Farms in Arroyo Grande, California, shaped a charming atmosphere for this elegant wedding with a glam twist. "The venue has a beautiful rose garden and is a winery with a beautiful vineyard—all on a personally owned farm close to the ocean," Linsay Starbuck (27 and a site merchandising assistant manager) says of her marriage to Stefan Springer (27 and an engineer). "It was so charming and intimate, and it was the perfect mix of everything I wanted." Silk ribbons dangled from lines that strung across one side of the ceremony space to the other, and Linsay and Stefan got married in front of an elegant mantel surrounded by candles and gold decor. Pops of pink accented the neutral-colored garden area, from the tassels that hung on the back chairs to the blooms that made up the bridesmaid bouquets. Guests sat at wooden dining tables with pink runners draped down the middle, decorated with romantic white candles and leafy green garlands. We loved the display of three wedding cakes on the dessert table—our favorite was the two-tier white cake splattered with gold and topped with a pink sign of their last name. A tip from Linsay: "Choosing the right vendors, along with choosing a venue with an amazing coordinator who truly wants you to have the perfect wedding, make the world of difference."
