Angie & Nick Wedding : SkyPark at Santa's Village, Lake Arrowhead, Ca
Angie and Nick’s wedding at SkyPark at Santa's Village in Lake Arrowhead, Ca was everything they envisioned and so much more. When I talked to Angie about her vision for the big day, she said she wanted it to feel like a “romantic dark forest theme, with a little bit of vintage style as well”. Well I think they absolutely nailed it! SkyPark at Santa's Village is the most beautiful forest venue, paired with an amusement park? Which sounds crazy, but surprisingly works incredibly well. The backdrop for not only the ceremony, but the entire reception is surrounded by a portion of 230 acres of natural forest. The bride and groom even get to adventure into the middle of that forest for their first look, as well as portraits.
I have to say this wedding was so filled with tears, that I couldn’t help but leak one out throughout the day. The beautiful bride Angie cried while her mom watched her get ready, crying. Her dad cried during their emotional first look, while Angie was crying. Nick started to cry during their own first look, while Angie wiped away the tears. The ceremony was literally just a bucket of tears; mom cried, the officiant cried, Angie cried, Nick cried- I’m pretty sure half the bridal party cried too. You definitely get my point, but my goodness, the whole day was filled with some absolutely beautiful emotional moments. And to tie the whole romantic forest theme together, Oak and Ivy Designs used some beautiful red roses and greenery creating an archway for the ceremony as well as decorations around the venue.
What made this day especially special for me, was the fact that Hailey and Ryan were not only in attendance, but referred me to this amazing couple. I actually met Angie at Hailey’s wedding in 2015, and I am in love with how things come full circle. Check Hailey and Ryan out with the sweetest bundle of joy they have at home now!
