We are so excited to feature Setareh & Mikko’s whimsical and romantic wedding that took place at Castle Green in January. From our first consultation call with Setareh, we hit it off and couldn’t wait to bring the couple’s wedding vision to life. She was interested in our Wedding Management services with some additional help on the overall design.
Setareh and Mikko were such a fun couple to work with. Setareh is a teacher and is extremely kind and caring. Mikko has such a fun sense of humor and kept us laughing every time we met with them.
The day started with Setareh getting her hair and makeup done at the nearby Hotel Constance in Pasadena. When she arrived at Castle Green, she put on her stunning dress with the help of her bridesmaids. Mikko and his friends put on their finishing touches before the couple’s First Look.
Setareh & Mikko had a beautiful “First Look” on the Grand Staircase at Castle Green. Afterwards, they took pictures around the historic venue and on the rooftop.
As guests started to arrive at Castle Green, we got the wedding party ready for the outdoor ceremony that took place in front of the magnolia tree on the lawn. Pavan Florals did an incredible job capturing the whimsical style in the ceremony flowers.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed the cocktail hour in the sunroom and main salon. Little Lily’s tray-passed scrumptious hors d’oeuvres options including a Caribbean Shrimp Siu Mai with Pineapple Jalapeño Glaze. The wedding guests were able to enjoy the couple’s decor touches before finding their seats in the ballroom for the reception.
The reception decor was very important to Setareh. We worked together to create something romantic and well thought out to create a cohesive design. We used dusty-blue table linen that mirrored her bridesmaid dresses. To finish the table-top design, we added purple water goblets and ivory napkins to help bring out the floral design by Pavan Floral. Finally, we added a ‘Better Together’ neon sign above the sweetheart table that made for truly epic photos opportunities.
We kicked off the reception with Setareh and Mikko’s first dance as a married couple. It was followed by an impressive plated dinner by Little Lily’s Kitchen. The rest of the evening was filled with entertainment for the wedding guests with a great mix of American and Persian music courtesy of Dart DJs. We also had a photo booth from Triumph Photo Booth to capture all the wedding memories.
We had so much fun working with this great couple and bringing their whimsical wedding at Castle Green to life.
