Amber + Sean’s Intimate Monday Wedding

Yes, you read the title right. Their wedding indeed took place on a Monday! What a lovely way to start the week with this lovely intimate vintage inspired wedding. Shot by the talented Ken Kienow, Amber and Sean chose Linn’s Farm Store in Cambria, California to celebrate their union with close friends and family.

A little bit from the bride, Amber:
Sean and I planned this wedding in only seven weeks. This alone made it necessary to keep the wedding small and intimate which was fine with Sean and I because that’s what we wanted. What started as just Sean, me, a witness, and our pastor grew to that plus parents and siblings and finally to an agreement that we would invite 25 people each…you’d think it was the bride who kept increasing the guest list…but it wasn’t, it was Sean :-) We ended up with 30 guests which was perfect given the small setting. We picked a Monday because we knew it was going to be outdoors and likely in a touristy area so we wanted to pick a day that was least likely to be busy. Also, we were on a very tight budget and everything is less expensive during the week (like booking places for our honeymoon!)

Love this session of photos of Sean waiting to see Amber for the first time as a bride:

Initially, we thought we’d have our wedding at the beach but we just weren’t feeling “it”. We drove around one day looking at different locations and as we were ending our tour, on a whim, I suggested we drive out there. It just clicked and we knew this had to be the spot. We immediately drove back into Cambria to Linn’s Restaurant and spoke with Aaron Linn. I told him our idea and he was excited because that is where he got married, his sister got married, and his best friend got married…those were the only 3 weddings that had been done there. He said he’d have to ask mom and dad and get back to me. The Linns said “yes” and the rest is history!

We knew we wanted to do something unique and vintage-y. As for the peacock, after we decided on our location, we went back out there for a visit and were pondering what our color scheme should be given the surroundings. There was a resident peacock and he was strolling around that day which gave me the inspiration. I just love the vibrant colors inspired from that beautiful bird! I asked Sean if he would wear a peacock inspired tie and he liked the idea. In the end, the tie we picked out didn’t work out but from there a theme was born and he ended up with that really cool turquoise print tie which totally worked out! The vintage feel was even more inspired by the location and the surroundings; the old broken down truck, the farmhouses, etc.

I will be announcing the lucky winner from Brilliant Earth’s giveaway today, so check back in a bit!

Vintage Hawaiian Wedding, Part IV

This wedding is dreamy, beachy and vintage glam altogether. What’s not to love about it?

Instead of a traditional cake table we placed dainty cupcakes onto vintage dishes and filled drawers with brightly colored taffy and clusters of flowers. Behind the dessert table hung a perfectly placed sleepy tree, which served to hang candle lighting from for a romantic effect.

Vintage Hawaiian Wedding, Part III

To design a Hawaiian wedding off the beaten path is not easy task, and Canvas and Canopy Events did it beautifully. I just can’t stop swooning over these images! The fresh color palette and vintage elements look like they were made for each other on this wedding. Photos by Honolulu wedding photographer Christie Pham, whose website is a must see for brides planning a Hawaii wedding!

From Cortnie from Canvas and Canopy Events:
Ombre hand dyed runners inspired from the couture resort collections of the Paris runways faded from bright blue, to light aqua to sea foam green and blended into the backdrop of the sparkling sea. Chandeliers swayed above the tables were also hand dyed in a palette of light blues and greens made from cotton fabric with raw edges, knotted and strung with crystals sparkling throughout. A floral crown was placed on top of each chandelier resembling a woodland fairy. Since we did not want to go the traditional Hawaiian wedding route and create chandeliers from leis of orchids- this was our softer and more custom interpretation. Each chandelier was up-lit and glowing by the time the sun started to set.

We wanted to incorporate the rest of the peacock feel in a non-literal way with the ruffles of the curtain swaying behind the soda bar, the pattern of the brocade napkins which resembled the outline of the peacock monogram, and the color palettes which consistently faded from dark to light throughout the event.
