Caitlin and James wedding editorial at Kestrel Park Santa Ynez California.

It is difficult to do justice with words when writing about this Kestrel Park wedding editorial. But if we have had to translate what we felt in words, it would be an ode to timeless romance entwined with a modern flair.

Starting from the location, the Kestrel Park is nestled in the Santa Ynez Valley, near the town of Santa Ynez, and is an exclusive venue that hosts a limited number of breathtaking events each year. What we adore about this venue is the unique architecture that feels like being transported back in time or a real-life fairytale. When we arrived, this vision became a true embodiment of that fairytale when we realized how peaceful and stunning everything was. The venue felt miles from anywhere and felt so pleasant. You will get a perfect idea of what we are talking about, through these Kestrel Park wedding photos.

Another thing that made us so fond of the place was the onsite suites for the couple to get ready before their ceremony. As photographers, we know how useful this feature can be for a wedding venue. Its usefulness lies in the fact that you lose no time for photography as a result of traveling between your hotel and the venue.

The place is unique, with features that trace all the way back to the sixteenth century. We were enchanted by the Castle’s old-world appeal, the welcoming staff, and the relaxed pace of life in the open country. It was surely a spot where we felt inspired to capture this romantic wedding editorial.

At the very first sight of such a beautiful wedding at Kestrel Park, California, we sensed the day was going to be both fun and lovely. Then, to add to our delight, we saw how the Janna Brown Design set the tone, and the Charmed Events Group coordinated the vision. Janna was so wonderful with her talent, she tailored the designs most magnificently. From the color palette to the florals and from the flatlays to the tablescapes, she weaved her craft into an awe-inspiring work of art. Also, from the lovely couple to their stunning outfits, and all the details about the day, everything was absolutely magical. It was no wonder since Charmed Events Group coordinated the wedding editorial seamlessly. In fact, all the Kestrel Park wedding photographers would feel themselves to be lucky to team up with these amazing artists just like we did. 

Caitlin and James looked gorgeous together. Caitlin, the bride, wore a beautiful gown by Marchesa, a very exquisite dress with an organza ruffle that swayed behind her as she walked through the wild fields and nursery, making it all look so beautifully ethereal. Then as the sun began to fade behind the horizon, the couple set off in a 1955’s classic Porsche Speedster 356 in the warm golden sunlight, which looked absolutely mesmerizing for a stylish and fine art Kestrel Park wedding editorial.

A ‘Classic and Simple’ setting always fascinates the human eye, which was the case here too. The views of fall with a soothing autumn breeze in the glimmering nightfall were the ideal backdrop for this elegant pre-winter wedding. And of course, you must be aware by now why we are sharing all this with you in this Kestrel Park wedding editorial? Well, because it has won our hearts, both aesthetically and creatively and we hope it has inspired your heart as well.
