From the bride, Lauren: Since Jon and I can be a bit, let’s say “quirky”, we knew we didn’t want to be too traditional in planning our wedding. We really wanted a rustic, vintage feel, but also to have fun. We wanted our guests to have a total blast at our wedding and be something that they could remember forever along with us. Moments of silliness were definitely a necessity to tie in with everything to help us relax and enjoy the entire evening.

Adjectives to describe our wedding would include silly, romantic, rustic, and FUN. We didn’t really have a set color palette, but we tried to stay within a mix of spring pastels with pops of bright color for contrast. I would say about 75% of our wedding was DIY. From the invitations, programs, guest book, cake topper, place cards, wedding jam favors…I could probably keep going… we wanted everything to be very personalized. It was also great having a 13 month engagement in order to take our time with all of the projects, and thanks to the ranch, the rest of that 25% was taken care of by them and their wonderful staff.

    What a great night that was!! So much fun (and I was working)!! Lauren and Jon are the sweetest couple. It was so obvious how much Jon loves his bride. They also had great friends in their wedding party. It was a pleasure and honor to be their wedding coordinator.
