I always love working at The Villa! If you are looking for a garden fell with a bit of luxury and elegance, a Villa at Ridder Country Club wedding is for you!
Amanda and Jorge chose the tent for their enchanted garden wedding. Greenery and vines were worked throughout their wedding day, from the invites, by Elegant Wedding Invites, to the table numbers. The tent decor flowed seamlessly with the beautiful garden at the Villa.
First Look at The Villa at Ridder Country Club Wedding
This couple clearly had a sense of humor! I knew Amanda and Jorge were the perfect couple for me when Amanda and I met over Jalapeño margaritas (my kinda gal)! When she told me her first look would be in a T-Rex suit, I almost died. Jorge was definitely fooled thinking a bridesmaid in a T-Rex costume was indeed his bride. I’m sure he was even more enamored to see his lovely lady in white coming out after the dinosaur!
Villa at Ridder Country Club Wedding Ceremony at the Tent
This was the first time I had photographed a wedding at The Villa’s tent. It was AMAZING! I adore the Madera Room, BUT, the light during the ceremony was absolutely ideal at the tent! Seriously…. this was the stuff I dream about. The ceremony was beautiful backlit with a wash of golden summer sun.
Tented Reception at The Villa
The Villa’s tent is STUNNING! Drapery and chandeliers give the tent a luxurious feel. The uplighting made the tent look extra beautiful as the sun set over the garden. Jorge and Amanda danced to Skid Row’s “I Remember You”. It was one of those moments that filled me with absolute joy. I’m a huge Skid Row fam. Pretty sure I wrote I <3 Sebastion Bach on every school book cover from 5th to 7th grade. I sang along discreetly as the beautiful couple twirled on the dance floor.
Uplights for the WIN!
If you are on the fence about uplighting, please do it! I have rarely seen uplighting that doesn’t look good. There’s so much depth and texture the uprights bring to a reception dance floor at night! I especially loved the way the uplighting highlighted the touching on the drapery ceiling of the tent.
