It’s not hard to see why Anthony and Caitlin were drawn to the Wild Iris. Imagine the most exquisite garden you can, fill it with manicured paths, fruit trees, and sprawling lawns that lead right up to the wooded forest, add a wisteria-draped pool, secluded sunny afternoons, and a spectacular view of hillside vineyards.
Caitlin has always been fascinated with biology and now works as an environmental lawyer. She immediately started envisioning complementing the natural beauty of Philo with a botanical theme. They collected vintage scientific illustrations for table markers, agate slices for name cards, and incorporated gems, flowers, and woodland themes into their decor.
In what seemed a perfect nod to the bride’s fiery Irish locks, the wedding date approached in time for trees full of apples and bright autumn foliage. Heartfelt vows were followed by al fresco dinner overlooking the valley, and dancing by the pool under the rising full moon.
