Tammy and her architect fiancé Ryan wanted to incorporate a mix of their love for nature and architecture into their elegant, understated wedding. Wayfarer's Chapel proved to be the absolute perfect venue for their intimate ceremony.

The rugged, natural beauty of California's West Coast served as the sublime backdrop for their union. The awe-inspiring glass and wood chapel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright's sont overlooks the incredible ocean cliffside.  As an architect, Ryan was immediately drawn to the California wedding venue, a study in bringing the outdoors in with its immense windows and natural stone altar. "We wanted our wedding to incorporate our love of nature and architecture," says Tammy. "Wayfarer's Chapel was the unique setting we were looking for!"

Tammy's bouquet of ivory roses was punctuated with succulents and velvety Lamb's ear, which complemented Ryan's minimalist boutonniere flawlessly.

Their reception at Catalina View Gardens was imbued with thoughtful details  incorporating wood and metal elements. The handsome couple commissioned custom metal-etched table numbers, gifted steel camping cups as wedding favors, and designed stationary and printed materials used wood veneer.
