Rustic-Chic Carmel Wedding

Michelle and Ari’s wedding at the beautiful Holman Ranch in Carmel, CA was chock-full of sweet rustic details! Their seating chart was out of this world. Love the burlap and silhouettes! Amazing details aside, how epic are the portraits from this wedding?! SO epic! Epic portraits and amazing detail shots are courtesy of JL Photografia. How gorgeous is her poofy veil? It was handmade by bride, using blush pink tulle dyed in black tea. Sewn and accented with vintage crystal pin (bought at Alameda Antiques Market). Michelle also made all the jewelry for the bridesmaids, as well as the ruffled sashes to go with their dresses.

Their seating chart was made out an old cork board covered in burlap screwed with c-hooks made by the bridesmaids, and all the paper goods were made by the bride.

Their ring pillow was a pin cushion made by groom when he was in Kindergarten…hands down, this IS the sweetest wedding idea ever.

Instead of a traditional guestbook, the bride purchased three old shutters at a thrift store, screwed in some loop hooks and tied some twine to create mini clotheslines where she placed mini clothespins where guests could hang messages.
