Queen of Hearts Styled Wedding Shoot at Hartley Botanica

Posted By Holly Castillo Photography on Tuesday 28th February 2017

This Alice in Wonderland inspired Romantic Tea Party styled shoot took place in Somis, CA at the beautiful Hartley Botanica Gardens and Nursery. This was a coming together of many wedding professionals in Ventura County, CA. The couple is a real couple who met through a shared love of swing dancing. We wanted to incorporate both the "tea party" theme of the bride wearing a tea length dress and quaint tablescapes, as well as the Alice in Wonderland "Queen of Hearts" theme- with her tiara and crown wedding cake, and red accents in the flowers and details. We liked to imagine the theme as sort of Alice all grown up now in Wonderland (this garden is truly magical), and now becoming a benevolent and beautiful Queen of Hearts after her predecessor. And in true Alice fashion, our bride is a curious dreamer- both a swing dancer and a violin player. All decor was handmade and crafted by design professionals. Their information listed below:
