Kai and Reggie met when both were students at UC Davis. They share a love of science, and their first date was to go starwatching at the park! The couple wanted to include the importance of science and have a nod to their first date. Thus, a celestial themed wedding was designed! They decided to go back to UC Davis for their wedding and get married at the Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center. Personally, we think that was a great decision. In fact, TWE owners, Jennifer and Rick, got married in the exact same garden space on campus 27 years ago!
Celestial Themed Wedding
There were so many great details to this beautiful wedding that represented the sky and stars.
Rosaura from Pigment & Parchment was the perfect fit to create custom watercolor-painted signage, planet table names, hand-drawn menus, and stained-glass place cards. She also provided live painting services for guests during the reception!
Bekah of Bloom & Vine incorporated fairy lights with deeps floral hues to match the fall season and compliment the blues and purples within the palette. She created a floral moon behind the couple for their ceremony. It made for a beautiful backdrop and matched their theme perfectly.
Kellie of Palette Cakes designed exquisite layers showcasing the sunset, clouds, sky, and stars. It was the perfect cake for their celestial themed wedding. Not to mention, it was delicious!
Once night fell, UC Davis Astronomy Club hosted a special star-watch talk and shared their telescopes with guests after dinner. Between stargazing, face painting, and dancing, the guests all had an amazing time and experienced a wedding to remember!
