Natural, Rustic-Chic Wedding at Kaleidoscope Inn and Gardens in Nipomo, California

Basing a color palette around the seasonal blooms of a garden isn’t always easy, but since Alyx Patterson (25 and a hairstylist) and Coner Boaen (26 and a landscaper) were using neutral colors to complement the natural decor, everything blended right in. “We didn’t want our decor or wedding day fashions to be bright and bold,” Alyx says. “We wanted the natural beauty of the trees, greenery and gardens to be enhanced by the style we brought in.” The couple had their rustic-chic wedding at the historic bed-and-breakfast Kaleidoscope Inn and Gardens in Nipomo, California. The ceremony took place in the inn’s garden space, where the aisle was decorated with black lanterns and small baby’s breath arrangements, just one of the many details captured by Alison D Photography. The reception featured simple dining tables covered in white linens adorned with centerpieces of bronze candelabras, wood lanterns and vintage glass bottles filled with baby’s breath. RSVP Events & Design helped the couple establish the soft, warm ambience. What we thought truly embodied the rustic-chic vibe was the small gazebo with an archway where Alyx and Coner were married, decorated in branches and a paper sign that read, “Let the Adventure Begin.” “We never expected that just this one day would provide so much love, laughter, tears and emotion,” Alyx says. “We are so blessed to have been able to bring everyone together under the same trees to celebrate our marriage.”
