Monteleone Meadows Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Newlyweds Danielle and Justin wanted a wedding where that blended the rustic setting but still keeping an elegant aesthetic without being too stuffy — I think it’s a safe bet to say they achieved this, no? This couple and their wedding day, captured by Priscila Valentina, are worlds beyond the definition of cool. The groom’s first look image gives me chills!

From the bride, Danielle: We wanted a rustic feel, but still elegant and very “us” at the same time. We wanted to have a lot of our own personal touches implemented in the wedding. We wanted people see our personalities through our decor.

Our wedding could be described as fun, laid back, beautiful, simple, and us…our color scheme was blush, peaches, and ivories. We choose dark chocolate brown linens to off set the light colors. All of the signage that we used around the venue were hand made by my mother.

San Diego Backyard Wedding

Garden Weddings

We couldn’t possibly be more excited to share today’s wedding from photographer Rachel Thurston and with florals by Twigg Botanicals, featuring a pair of newlyweds that is nothing short of completely gorgeous. You may recognize the reappearance of the envelope note card board from last year’s Las Vegas wedding, which is just as much of a hit this time around. There are gobs of ideas to adore in this wedding, which are as sweet as the bride and groom themselves.

From the bride, Becca: I imagined a vintage feel. I love lace, and antique looking bottles. I also wanted a sorta comfortable feeling in my backyard with people I’m close to. I wanted a sort of magical feeling with the lights and mason jars lit which I got!! I love flowers too so I wanted a soft vintage look with those to bring everything together. I love Anthropologie too so a lot of their furniture inspired me and I created some of my own pieces in the backyard.

I had a color scheme that helped me plan everything. Everything was centered around that. It was a seafoam green, some natural creams and taupes, shades of pink (terracotta, peach, rose, mauve).. very muted versions of all these colors. My flowers were a great reference to my color scheme. I wanted a vintage, antique feel. We purchased all of our decorations. We went to antique shops or just looked for antique looking things wherever we went. We also borrowed furniture, books, and other things from my grandparents home. I made my own paper bags for the candy. I had someone create silhouettes for us and then I ordered bags from Etsy and made all of them with ribbon and a scallop hole puncher. We made the chalkboards we used using old frames and chalkboard paint. I loved the overall soft feel that my wedding had with the colors we used.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Take a breath. Everything will get done. I planned my wedding in 3 months and everything got done and was perfect. It is possible. Just make sure you know what kind of wedding you’re wanting… big/small, etc. Also, decide what things are most important to you and what you’d like to spend more money on. Flowers were really important to me so I spent more on them. Also sometimes you have to call people or places a few times to get what you need done!
