Lauren & Alex: A Blend of Two Cultures with Elegant Whites and Gold Accents at Villa Montalvo

What do you get when a California girl meets a Swiss darling? Lauren and Alex's wedding hashtag says it all: #SitlerGoesSwiss! Lauren is a native Californian, and Alex is Swiss—their wedding was a gathering of two cultures at the verdant Villa Montalvo at Saratoga.

Lauren looked simply chic in her gown from Hayley Paige. Paired with dainty accessories like her silver drop earrings and a few bracelets for added sparkle, she looked stunning next to her dashing groom. Alex wore a cream boutonniere from Huckleberry Karen Designs to match the lovely bride.

Soft, romantic petals led up to the altar, where the couple happily said their “I do’s!” After, the newlyweds and their guests dined on the most elegant tablescape. We loved how the strings of gold pearls, ivory roses, and antique wine glasses added sophistication to the space. On the couple’s table, gold lanterns were added as statement pieces.

To end the perfect night, Lauren and Alex shared their first dance, followed by the cutting of the cake, in all of its golden glory.
