How adorable are the floral crown and little flower ring below? Can you believe that the ring is made out of ranunculus, berzelia berries and a “leaf”. So simple, so sweet. I love it.

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.

Historic Ballroom Wedding

Vintage Weddings

We have to say that bride Brooke stumbled upon one of the most gorgeous venues for an indoor wedding! Pops of yellow here and there brighten up the expansive ballroom in these photos from the wonderful Emily Steffen. Read on to hear Brooke tell us how adorable her “first look” with Jay was!

From the bride, Brooke: Jay and I are college sweethearts. We met in Milwaukee during our third year of college. Shortly after graduation we moved to Arizona and we have lived here for the past three years. After we got engaged we began planning our Midwest wedding! Minneapolis made the most sense because home is where the family is.

When I drove into the parking lot of Nicollet Island Pavilion I knew it was the place. I got tears in my eyes and could NOT wait to have my wedding there. The pavilion is surrounded by trees and water so we chose October for the beautiful fall leaves. I wanted our wedding to be clean and simple with some modern and rustic elements. Nicollet Island Pavilion was the perfect place!

After trying on many dresses I found the one at Priscilla of Boston. Months after my purchase, I felt that I needed to do something to make the dress my own, I added a crystal belt and a cage veil from Etsy. It was perfect.

I always wanted black for my bridesmaid dresses. I loved the bows on the back of these dresses–it added a bit of spunk to a timeless piece. Our attire was black and white but I needed something to spice it up, so I added the color through our flowers. This is where the billy balls came in! It was really important to make our wedding day our own. I wasn’t able to travel with many DIY projects so I ordered many pieces off of etsy — the crystal belt, card box, veil, and ‘here comes the bride’ sign.

My favorite part of the entire day was seeing Jay for the first time. I loved walking up to him with his back turned. Afterwards he told me that he could hear the swooshing of my dress as I got closer and closer to him. I waited until I got a couple feet from him and I said his name. He turned around and looked at me with such emotion and happiness that I knew this is the reason why I am marrying this man today. This really set the tone for the rest of the day. Nothing mattered except our marriage! To me it was perfect.

My husband and I share a common love of Winthrop… It is a beautiful and quirky little eastern Washington town. The lodge has the most majestic view. I personally think the entire place is pretty stylishly rustic.

From the photographer, Chrissy: Tanya + Tommy were married on a small lake in the backyard of a close family friend. Their tent reception was decorated with shades of white flowers in mismatched vases, so quaint and utterly adorable. Their s’mores station close to the firepit surrounded by hay bale benches and it was a huge hit. The clear tent allowed the couple and their guests to stargaze from the dance floor.
