Where oh where to begin with this San Clemente wedding from Matthew Morgan? Perhaps with the fact that the handsome groom looks uncannily like Adam Scott from Parks and Recreation, or that everyone in this wedding is drop-dead gorgeous, or that every bit of the styling and floral design from Love Me Do Weddings and Tropical Blossoms is nothing short of southwestern perfection…
From the bride, Katie: The style I was going for was a southwestern vibe. We wanted a lot of DIY and love to show through all the decor of the wedding. I also wanted to keep it simple, but make a statement. Some adjectives that come to mind would be… simple, happy, or relaxed. The theme was southwestern, along with red-orange, turquoise, yellow colors…
Our DIY projects included: we painted geometric designs on each of the table numbers, and we painted the escort frames with geometric designs as well. We had bracelets tied around the napkins at the tables that had tags with clever sayings written on them. We painted each terracotta pot, and we made the sign in table/find your seat table decor too!
Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? My advice would be to stay calm and roll with whatever happens…you’re marrying your best friend, nothing can change that. I think all brides can agree that the day goes by way too fast, so take in each moment!
