Do you love the Lord of the Rings? Then you must keep scrolling to see these enchanting Nestldown wedding photos! Kim and Rob knew they wanted their wedding to be fantasy-inspired, romantic and ethereal. I think it’s safe to say they knocked it out of the park!
To quote the bride, they were on the lookout for “A place where we imagine elves would unite in marriage”. When they stumbled upon Nestldown, a wedding venue in Los Gatos California, they didn’t need to look any further. Tucked in the Santa Cruz mountains, this venue is bursting with so many fairytale elements.
Kim and Rob kept their theme front of mind with every single enchanting detail. As a result, their wedding day couldn’t have turned out more magical!
How sweet is this first look with Kim and her dad?! I am always such a fan of first looks. Father-daughter first looks are always so special!
Nestldown has so many unexpected whimsical features for their couples to take advantage of. This London cab is used throughout the property to escort the couple and is such a cool idea!
The cutest member of the wedding party – this adorable mini pony! This guy makes their enchanting Nestldown wedding feel like it’s straight out of a storybook!
I absolutely loved Kim’s all lace fairytale-inspired gown! It paired so well with the gorgeous lavender hue of her bridesmaid’s dresses.
How magical is this redwood grove? Nestldown was a perfect fit for their fantasy Santa Cruz wedding day.
Being huge Lord of the Rings fans and writers themselves, it was only fitting that the place cards were Tolkien-inspired displayed books! Also, adding to the fairytale fantasy theme was this gorgeous ‘happily ever after calligraphy sign.
The twinkle lights reflecting on the pond, make Nestldown just as enchanting at night!
Congratulations Kim and Rob! It was the most beautiful day.
