Andy and I wanted a semi destination wedding. So we started looking north along the Coast. Online we found a beautiful White barn that sat on a little beach town off the coast. Cayucos, The Cayucos Creek Barn! Don’t let the name throw you off. Cayucos is bright, welcoming, and a perfect combination of country and small beach town. We had the ceremony and dinner right outside the barn and reception in the barn. Perfect!!! The weather, the fresh ocean air, the fun laid back feel of the barn, Motown music in the background. Perfect!!!

More sweet details from Mercedes: Most of the decorations were home made or found at garage sales and thrift stores. We started right away looking for mason jars, old books and candlesticks on craigslist, or second hand stores. I also hosted a few wedding project nights at my house. Where the girls and I polished tin trays, candlesticks and cake platters. We also covered old tin soup cans with burlap to be used for vases around the barn.

The soup cans were collected for me by the mentally disabled adults that I work with. My Designer and friend made this beautiful frame display out of fishing wire and plastic tubes used to hold water for flowers after they’ve been cut. We used the frames as the back drop of our ceremony. My husband and his guys made an amazing chandelier out of rope, old glass bottles, and light bulbs that hung on stage above the band. I created a L.O.V.E sign out of fabric letters from Anthropologie, chicken wire, ribbon, and an old frame. The Love sign hung at the entrance of the barn and above our head table.

Advice for Brides: Don’t do it all yourself! It’s more fun for everyone promise 🙂 Love your Fiance’ through the whole process of the wedding. Not because your getting married but just because you love him. Don’t make your wedding the focus of the relationship for those few months. It’s refreshing 🙂
