Nancy + Anthony: Nestldown Wedding

Nestldown is a private retreat in the midst of towering redwood trees, lush fields, and crisp clean lakes. The location is kept private so that there are no interruptions to any sort of event going on, which makes the venue even more magical. It was a perfect setting for Nancy and Anthony’s intimate vintage style wedding, where they only had about 50 guests and sat everyone at one long family style table, really allowing everyone in attendance to interact together.

These two are absolutely gorgeous together. It was fun to have them lounge in the soft lush grass on the Nestldown property for some fun outdoor couple portraits. I love the sunlight filtering down through the tree branches onto the couple.

Nancy wished for a wedding that was the opposite of a hotel ballroom wedding, opting for a mix of elegant, romantic, and vintage meets nature inspired wedding. She had an idea of a whimsical dream in a magical forest, and I think the Nestldown setting matched her vision perfectly!

The couple wanted antique styled china with heavy linens and lush centerpieces accented with vines and greenery to tie in the surrounding scenery of the Nestldown property. All of the green succulents and moss and foliage created rich centerpieces.

Sugary sweets from the Nestldown dessert table
Nancy and Anthony opted for a dessert table full of sugary sweets for their guests in addition to their smaller wedding cake. I love the three-tiered glass stands with the assortment of tarts atop the rich damask linen. That bread pudding is making me hungry just looking at these pictures again!

Long table for all guests at Nestldown by Tinywater Photography
The long family style table was so beautiful tucked under the tall redwood trees. It allowed all of the guests to gather together and be part of the same intimate experience rather than being spread out and separated in smaller tables.
