DIY Backyard Wedding – Oakhurst, California – Angela & Michael

Angela and Michael put together this DIY rustic backyard wedding that took place on their pastors waterfront property surrounded my massive ancient oak trees in the heart of Oakhurst, Califonia.

Virtually every element of this casual celebration was a DIY project involving family and friends of the bride and groom. Angela hand picked the fabric for each bridesmaid gown, and created them herself (reserving fabric to make matching pocket handkerchiefs for the groomsmen and banners to drape at the reception and behind the ceremony alter)! She also altered her off the rack discount bridal gown to suit her personal style, removing the train and adding lace shoulders.

Angela worked closely with her florist to create the rustic bouquets with sunflowers, pastel flowers and actual cotton blossoms. The reception flowers were a personal DIY project that Angela tackled, filling old coffee tins with live snapdragons, succulents and various flowers to take home and replant later in the bride and grooms newly purchased home.

The entire wedding party got involved crafting, supplying and creating the elements for the ceremony and reception on the spacious lawn. Bridesmaids and family supplied rustic chic furniture from their own homes – chairs from a bridesmaids kitchen, bird house from the mother of the brides garden… one bride even brought her antique love seat all the way from Los Angeles!

The cake adorned with live flowers was also a DIY project by one of the family members of the groom.

After the ceremony, guests mingled over a buffet of light appetizers and played games on the lawn while soft music played in the background. The reception featured cake cutting and toasts before the happy couple made their getaway in a cherry red classic car loaned to them from a close friend.

Dubsdread Historic Ballroom Wedding – Orlando, Florida – Christine & Jesse

Christine and Jessie met back in high school in 10th grade English class where, as luck may have it, the teacher had assigned the class to work in pairs to complete a literature paper. Paired up by their teacher, the two exchanged numbers to work on the paper together and it wasn’t long before a crush ensued and soon the two went from study buddies to high school sweethearts.

Young love soon turned into a long term relationship as the two graduated high school and moved on together in the next chapter of their lives. Jessie knew it was the right time to propose to Christine and asked for her to marry him while at their home, sitting on the couch, snuggled up together, Jessie took out a little ring box and asked for his darling’s hand in marriage. Of course, Christine said “yes” and the wedding planning began!

Lori, Christine’s amazing mother, helped plan out Christine’s special day and created a beautiful ‘poetic romance’ wedding theme as we like to call it. From antique books with ink pens and feathers as table centerpieces to light baby blue bridesmaid dresses, Jessie and Christine’s wedding theme looks like a love novel.

Their day started off with photographing Christine’s details upon her arrival and capturing her putting on her gown. Then prior to the ceremony beginning, Christine and Jessie shared a first look together where tears flowed down from Christine’s eyes as she saw Jessie for the first time. Underneath the oak trees where their ceremony was about to take place, the moment of realisation that all of their planning, love, and time together was about to be shared with friends and family through officially becoming Mrs. and Mr. Musick officially hit them.

As guests flowed in to sit down for the ceremony, Jessie lined up with his groomsmen and Christine with her bridesmaids. Jon with Once Upon a Wedding helped guide the two sweethearts through their ceremony as they held back more tears. After a beautiful sand pouring tradition, exchanging vows, and sharing their first kiss, it was finally time for formal portraits with family and their wedding party before their wedding reception began and they danced into the night.

Styled Shoot – The Barn at Oak Manor, Georgia – Peachy Keen Styled Shoot

This “Peachy Keen” styled wedding shoot was inspired by soft peach and pink hues with silver accents and a touch of gold. The styled shoot team met their goals of romantic, intimate, feminine, and whimsical feels. The sign “forever his always hers ” was a custom, hand-painted sign made by the calligrapher.

The florals were an important and intricate part of the wedding shoot, with a large romantic bridal bouquet that paired beautifully with the bridal gown. It looks as though it was a lovely mix between the dreamy arrangement and the sparkling details of the gown. The centerpieces of the head table were smaller, quaint pieces which complimented the loose flowers scattered across the floral runner of the estate table.

Sometimes when the weather is unpredictable and there is a chance for rain, often times this is stressful to the bride, but the cloudy day made for some great natural light filters for outdoor photography. And the gorgeous model bride and groom were super flexible, so we love the impromptu umbrella shots of them heading to the reception area.
