It is a dream to have a enormous wedding and invite everyone you know but not everyone desires or can afford such a large affair. When Stan and Katie got married at the Temecula Creek Inn in Temecula, California, they had an intimate wedding with just close friends and family. It still an incredible event. The Temecula Creek Inn is tucked away in the hills of California's other wine country, it boasts a championship golf course and fountains. There is even an 150 year old stone house on the premises. It was the perfect location for an intimate wedding.
Katie's wedding strapless was classic, elegant and modern all wrapped up into one. It had beautiful lace on the bodice and on the skirt. The veil was very traditional and classic. She wore drop earrings without any other jewelry. She took a classic traditional style but it had a modern flair.
Even though Stan and Katie had planned a smaller affair, they still had brides maids and grooms men.
The couple was surprised by Stan's co-workers with a special treat. It fit perfectly with the feel of their nuptials. Stan is a fireman and his co-workers brought over a 1950's fire engine. It provided a very personal touch to their special day.
At the reception, the wedding cake also unique. It was two tiers and a big bunch of flowers on top. It was simply gorgeous.
If you are considering a smaller affair, Stan and Katie showed that you don't have to skimp on the details. You can still have all of the special touches of a larger wedding. You just have to find the right venue to set the tone and be very creative in your planning. You can have a magnificent wedding even if you decide to do it on a smaller scale.
