Vintage-Inspired Seaside Wedding
Hope everyone stayed safe this weekend for all of us in the East Coast! Mastin Studio is bringing us sunshine all the way from California with a sweet seaside wedding in Carmel. Love the bride’s tea length wedding dress and cobalt blue heels! Of course we have many more stylish images to gaze over in the gallery.
From the groom: We both love the outdoors, so we decided to get married outside. We decided to hold our reception at Mission Ranch to extend the feeling of being outside: the patio provides expansive ocean views, and the barn gives a rustic feel. To go along with the rustic outdoor theme, we collected vintage bottles and jars for the centerpieces, and the florist filled them with wild and garden flowers. Adrienne’s dress was altered to be reminiscent of a fifties dress.
In addition to collecting vintage jars and bottles, Adrienne and some loyal family members did a few projects. We spray-painted animals silver to hold the table numbers, made flags for people to wave at the end of the wedding ceremony, and packed DIY ice cream kits for favors. Adrienne also made all of the paper goods: the invitations, programs, and cards for guests to leave their wishes. We bought the pinwheels that were at the ceremony from an artist on Etsy.
Adrienne doesn’t normally like cake, so we struggled with the choice. Our solution was to order a dozen small cakes (and several dozen French macarons) from a fantastic local bakery. We really liked that we could get creative with the flavors by having lots of small cakes, and Adrienne was particularly won over by the strawberry cake.
The summer that we first met, we’d roam around the South Bay singing “With a little help from my friends” with our group of friends. We’re both shy about dancing in public, so we made our bridal party stand up and dance with us to that song.
