Inspiration

Marcy and Kasper's love of nature and literature inspired this romantic greenhouse wedding full of plants and quotes. With a colourful pink suit and a brightly coloured bouquet adding pops of colour to all the greenery. Plus, wedding signs and a tufted rug crafted by Kasper adding those all-important personalised finishing touches. If love is what you're looking for, here is where you'll find it.

Early in our friendship, we bonded over the books of Tom Robbins, a writer whose work really speaks to us. We each read quotes from our favourite books during the ceremony, and our vows were edited quotes from his books as well.

GREENHOUSE WEDDING

Jitterbug Perfume Tom Robbins’ love quotes filled the air at Marcy and Kasper’s beautiful greenhouse wedding overlooking the California coast in Pacifica. The nursery itself is a serene greenhouse overflowing with plants and flowers with a light blue exterior adding a beautiful pop of colour. Kasper, a Danish artist, created bright signage and placed them throughout the venue.

DETAILS

Their dog, Dr Biscuit, was dressed fabulously as an integral part of both their wedding and family. Along the pathways, they sprinkled books by Tom Robbins, whose writing and love quotes epitomised their love for each other. Their ceremony music was played by a lively mariachi band and during the ceremony, the couple stood together on a tufted rug that was handmade by Kasper.

Marcy and Kasper ensured they stood out amongst all the greenery at their greenhouse wedding. Donning a pink suit and an off the shoulder embellished pearl dress. Pure goals.

Outside, against the beautiful scenery and sunset, everyone was served dinner from Indian street and taco food trucks. Marcy and Kasper used to live in San Francisco and it was important for them to incorporate elements of their life together there into their wedding. Mora Taco Truck was a food truck they had frequented often. Marcy is an avid baker and wanted a showstopping dessert so they served cream puffs set in a tower and meringue bites from Choux SF, along with Marcy’s homemade caramels. They ended the night dancing to music from a live band, surrounded by twinkle lights.

The beauty of a greenhouse wedding is you don't really have to decorate it if you don't want to. The structure and the botanicals are already jaw-dropping enough. This means you can focus on your outfits or a few meaningful additions. Marcy and Kasper are book lovers - Tom Robbins books to be exact and dotted his literature and quotes around the venue to make it personal to them. Leigh and Luca and Chrisel and David also had weddings in a nursery. See how they personalised their celebration.
