Tori and Niko’s dreamy California beach wedding at Levyland Estates has us longing for warmer weather, sand between our toes, and picturesque sunsets. The couple created a vintage boho vibe by setting up a teepee-inspired arch for the ceremony and using a mix of antique and handmade decor. The bride’s vintage-esque Sottero and Midgley lace dress was stunning, and we love how she wore her hair down for the beach ceremony and then wore it braided with a simple greenery crown for the reception. Photographer Jami Laree did an incredible job capturing every moment of Tori and Niko’s wedding, especially the fun couple portraits by the water!
Tori and Niko
Levyland Estates, Carlsbad, California
My look was vintage bohemian. I love the ’50s and ’60s era fashion, and I love the laid back, eclectic nature of bohemian fashion, so I combined the two. I loved the lace sleeves on my dress the most. My accessories were simple. I borrowed earrings and a pendant necklace from my forever fabulous Aunt Peggy. She has been collecting beautiful jewelry for many years and she was gracious enough to let me borrow some diamonds for a day!
Processional – Niko composed an original song and played it on guitar
Recessional – “Got to Give It Up” by Marvin Gaye
First dance – “Till There Was You” by The Beatles
We had an authentic Mexican taco cart at our reception. Tacos are so close to our hearts!
