Shauna & Cody: Young, Sweet Love at the Emma Estate
San Diego, California
Shauna & Cody’s June garden wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty this past October. The charming words spoken in the article by the wedding planner (Rebecca Gaffney of Red Letter Days Events) perfectly captured the event and the sweet love that the couple share:
“From Rebecca Gaffney, Red Letter Days Events…From the first moment I met Shauna Stoughton Miller and her mother, Lisa, I was struck by their kindness, their strong commitment to their family and loved ones, and their unwavering faith. It was an instant friendship and laid the groundwork for a joyful, inspired planning experience for Shauna and Cody’s wedding day. Our path was guided by creating signature moments that were extremely important to Shauna, Cody, and their families, which then developed the aesthetic framework for those elements. “I wanted to cherish every second of the day like my time with my mom as I got ready, eating breakfast with my bridesmaids, praying with my dad before I walked down the aisle, telling Cody my vows, our first kiss as a married couple, the father-daughter dance…” explained Shauna.
True to Shauna and Cody’s sweet yet sophisticated charm, a garden feel with a hint of vintage was created for the day at the stunningly beautiful Emma Estate in Rancho Santa Fe. “It was an incredible job of making it romantic yet not over the top,” Shauna shared. Paula Rae Anderson for Rae Florae created personal and decorative floral that spoke to the classy whimsy Shauna sought. While maintaining a natural feel, Paula translated Shauna and Cody’s color palate of pewter, steel, slate, eggplant, and soft white through bouquets and vinyets made of peonies, garden roses, dahlias, hydrangea, dusty miller, tulips, sweet peas, ranunculus, and mini cymbidium orchids. Soft market lighting draped the garden and dance floor, and mirrored the glow of romance that came from Shauna and Cody. The couple’s attire, along with that their wedding party, was perfectly matched for the day – dressy garden party.”
