Newlyweds Danielle and Justin wanted a wedding where that blended the rustic setting but still keeping an elegant aesthetic without being too stuffy — I think it’s a safe bet to say they achieved this, no? This couple and their wedding day, captured by Priscila Valentina, are worlds beyond the definition of cool. The groom’s first look image gives me chills!

From the bride, Danielle: We wanted a rustic feel, but still elegant and very “us” at the same time. We wanted to have a lot of our own personal touches implemented in the wedding. We wanted people see our personalities through our decor.

Our wedding could be described as fun, laid back, beautiful, simple, and us…our color scheme was blush, peaches, and ivories. We choose dark chocolate brown linens to off set the light colors. All of the signage that we used around the venue were hand made by my mother.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Don’t sweat the small stuff, and try to make your wedding your own. Add personal touches that show who the both of you are. Take everything in, because it goes by very fast! If you blink it’s going to be gone. Just have the time of your life.
