Justine & Robert’s Rustic Beautiful Wedding

An Earth-friendly wedding mixes nature and glamour with stunning results

Everything about Justine and Robert’s wedding was fresh, stylish, and eco-chic. Held at the romantic Nestldown estate in the Santa Cruz mountains, this event perfectly pairs a rustic, natural backdrop with glamorous details like Justine’s sexy Melissa Sweet wedding dress, and lush floral bouquets to match the fresh orange, green and purple palette. It was all photographed by Gia Canali, whose fantastic blog is a must-read for in-the-know wedding folks. <!–more–>

The photographer brought along an antique Italian parasol she found at a flea market in Miami that she had been saving for years for the perfect couple and a wedding that matched. The love is in the details! Thanks again to Gia Canali for sharing these great pics with us.
