Kailani and Elliot tied the knot on a beautiful day at the regal Paso Robles wedding venue Villa San Juliette. Although the venue is elegance in itself, the details of the day elevated the elegance of the wedding with ethereal florals, unique moments like an olive oil seating chart and self-serving champagne cart, and classic tablescapes. Their talented photographer Kari Humphrey was there to capture each devoted moment. I had the pleasure of interviewing the bride about the special day.

Their Love Story
"We met in 5th grade when Elliott was the new kid at my school! I offered to show him around, and immediately our friendship blossomed. Throughout our early teenage years, we found ourselves doing everything together, and considered each other best friends. We attended school events together, helped each other with homework, and our families even went on trips together. Evidently, our friendship developed into something more and we fell in love as high schoolers. We soon went off to college together, and the rest is history! Elliott asked me to marry him overlooking the sunset in Santorini after almost 8 years together. I truly got to marry my best friend in the whole world and am so excited to spend our lifetimes together."
"Timeless and classy, with a hint of Italian countryside!"
"White, greenery, and gold."
"I was so excited to see the champagne cart that my Dad and I spent several months building from scratch come to life! Also our infused olive oil seating chart!"
"Reading our personal vows to each other during our ceremony."
Knowing what you know now... what advice would you have for other brides planning their wedding?
"Try not to stress too much about the small details or that something might go wrong on your wedding day. I promise that on the day-of, none of it will matter to you because you'll be surrounded by those you love most and marrying the love of your life. You'll feel nothing but pure happiness!"
What was the most challenging part about planning your wedding?
"The most challenging part of the wedding planning process was comparing what we had planned to other weddings I would see on social media. It's easy to start to second guess your plans when you're constantly flooded with beautiful weddings online. I tried to remind myself that what we had planned was true and unique to us as a couple, and within a budget we felt comfortable with. Now that it's all said and done, I wouldn't change a single thing!"
