San Juan Capistrano Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

We got another gorgeous Cali wedding to share today! Our favorite part of this wedding has to be how obviously personal it was for the bride and groom. From naming each table after a Beatles song to having the groom, James, hand design the invitations and paper goods, each detail was totally about them and their love for each other — just the way it should always be. With amazing pre-wedding shots at the stunning San Juan Capistrano Mission and more from Katelin Wallace Photography, you might fall for this wedding as much as we have!

From the bride, Michelle: From the moment we got engaged, James and I began dreaming up tons of ideas to incorporate into our wedding day. We knew from the start that we wanted to do as much of the design and decor elements ourselves with the help of our friends and family. Coming from creative backgrounds (I work in product development for a major cosmetics company and James has a design business) it only made sense that we’d work together to make all of our ideas come to life. With the help of my interior designer Mother and furniture designer Father, we collaborated and began planning a day filled with endless DIY projects that reflected our personalities, cultures and styles.

We were certain that we wanted to incorporate a favorite color combination (yellow and grey), our love of the Beatles and all things vintage and my Spanish and Portuguese heritage. Though it was a lot of work, each detail was extra special as there was so much thought and effort put into it. Each project was important to us as it reflected who we are, what we love and our families. Many months of planning, researching and crafting lead to our perfect wedding day. Walking into our wedding we were filled with so much love and joy not only to finally be marrying each other, but to be solidifying our union in a space that was so very us. Our friends and family raved about all the details everywhere they glanced and it made our hearts want to burst knowing that we created our dream wedding together.

Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

Our hearts may have fluttered just a bit looking through these images from A Love Supreme, but how could they not? Bride Kathryn and her new husband Ryan furnished their own wedding by hand, and tackled project upon project for a truly unique and personal day. Our absolute favorite detail has to be the “kissing tree” — what a sweet addition to such a beautiful affair!

From the bride, Kathryn: We were so fortunate to have found such an amazing venue for our wedding. The rolling hills and enchanting farmhouse already provided a beautiful backdrop so we decided to keep things pretty simple. Instead of renting everything, we opted to purchase several items which helped to save money and give it a more unique feel. We wanted to play off the farmhouse’s vintage aesthetic so what decor we did use we had purchased with that in mind. We scoured thrift stores, Craigslist, and Etsy for various vintage goodies. Our biggest travail was our hunt for mismatched antique silverware and lace tablecloths, but in the end it was well worth it.

One of my favorite finds was a bright coral settee and matching chair which we lugged up to the venue and placed under a tree outside; the contrast against the rustic background really made them statement pieces. We designed our own invitations and had them screen printed onto linen fabric by Ike Fonesca of Rebel Rose Clothing in Portland, OR. Since some of our guests had to be shuttled up to the venue fairly early before the ceremony, we knew we had to keep them entertained. Not only did they have 150 acres of land to explore (complete with ostriches, goats, and a pond), we provided outdoor games such as bocce and horseshoes, and a kissing tree to boot.

Overall, our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be, but we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of our friends and family. Many a friend and many a night was spent laboring over the invitations (narrowly escaping carpal tunnel after placing hundreds of grommets), spray-painting mason jars, and stenciling table numbers. Of course, on the actual wedding day nothing runs as smoothly as planned, but it was amazing to see everyone come together to create an absolutely memorable experience. Bottom line… DIY is a lot of fun, but it’s also a lot of work!
