Today’s wedding from Kayla Adams has us pining away for the warm, crisp days of summer! With a bright color palette of greens, yellows, and some grey for good measure, it’s difficult not to get a bit happier just looking at these images. Most adorable of all is the ring bearer and flower girl with their sweet parasol!
From the bride, Kelsie: We really wanted an outdoorsy feel to our wedding, so we decided that more of the rustic summer wedding was definitely the way to go for us!
I typically don’t go with brighter hues, but for the special occasion we decided to be a little different and go with a bright yellow, kelly green, and then to keep it a little within comfort, grey. We wanted to do as much as we could ourselves, so with my amazing bridesmaids and family we did all of the bouquets, centerpieces, and favors the day before.
We knew we wanted outdoorsy, and the freedom to do whatever we wanted, so that really narrowed down a lot of places for us. Some places make you use their table settings, their catered food, and occasionally their DJ. But even though we did not have a lot of options, I couldn’t have imagined a better place. We decided on Crestmore Manor in Riverside, CA that gave off the feeling of a southern plantation.
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? I would definitely tell people to not stress out about the day. It is obviously a special day and you are always going to remember it. But as much as possible let the little things go. You can plan and plan, but not everything will go as planned – and sometimes, those are the best memories.
