From the bride, Gabie: when Matt and I moved to California we fell in love with Big Sur. Matt asked me to marry him on our favorite beach there. We knew right away that Big Sur is where we would have our wedding. After researching a few locations we decided to stop by the Henry Miller Library and instantly fell in love with it’s woodsy charm. Adjectives that best describe the look of our wedding are vintage, woodsy, bright and cozy… The colors I used were different shades of orange, yellow and pops of bright robins egg blue. My sister, Madeleine( plus a few other helpers, Kris, my mom, Matt) and myself made all of the tissue paper flower napkin rings. I also collected vintage milk glass vases for the table. I made place cards and a friend, Jamie Coxon, made the the frame that held them. We also made all of the honey jar favors and I drew our “wedding tree” for our guest to sign.
