Photographer Tec Petaja captured the beautiful couple, Andrea and John at Twin Peaks Ranch in Southern California’s Ojai Valley. When the couple started planning their wedding, they got some serious help from the industry creatives over at Bash, Please. Paige Appel and Kelly Harris are known for crafting unfussy and highly personalized weddings. “The inspiration was definitely more autumnal, wild and rich,” Appel and Harris say of their approach to Andrea and John’s September celebration. “It felt very California, with a nod to an alfresco Spanish dinner party.” Faced with the challenge of designing a not-too-feminine wedding (“which weddings can tend to be,” says Bash, Please), the duo ditched formalities and focused on cool, natural elements. “Andrea and John wanted to incorporate the transitional colors of the beginning of autumn,” say the designers. The color palette of the day was earthy yet elegant: mushroom, wine and ochre.
