The Rengstorff House in Mountain View was perfect for Caroline and Mike’s relaxed and intimate fall wedding. It is a charming historic house in the Victorian Italianate style, and the grounds are elegant and filled with lush green spaces and lots of beautiful trees. Caroline and Mike were married beneath an arch decorated with the prettiest blush and cream florals, surrounded by their community of friends and family.
Every little detail was thought of, with design help and fantastic coordination by Denise of d.Royal Engagements. The illustrated invitations showcased Caroline and Mike as travelers, because their shared love of adventure was part of what brought them together. From morning mimosas to the bride’s strappy Jimmy Choo heels, from tissue poms to paper lanterns and string lights, from TOMS shoes for every bridesmaid in monogrammed tote bags to the glittery bar signage and gorgeous florals from Floral Design Studio, there was so much steal-worthy prettiness! Caroline and Mike are not only travelers but total foodies, which is why they put a lot more thought into the dining experience of their guests than your average wedding buffet (not to mention that their favors even reflected this too, with DIY recipe cards and heart shaped measuring spoons!) I love that while guests sipped on His and Hers signature cocktails, the kids were off playing corn hole, there was such a fun and relaxed ambiance throughout the day. And there’s just something about an intimate wedding dinner beneath twinkling cafe lights that will always get me.
A huge thanks to my lovely friend Mariah who stepped in to second shoot and did such a wonderful job. And thank you Caroline and Mike for trusting me to document your wedding day!
