What three adjectives that best describe your wedding? Romantic, vintage, elegant
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? While browsing blogs (like Junebug!) and magazines, what called out to me the most were the vintage and romantic themed weddings. I also wanted our wedding to be outdoors for guests to experience the great southern California summer weather. This inspired me to DIY a lot of small and subtle details (lace wrapped votive candles, vintage sheet music for the candles and rose petal cones, personalized water bottle labels, tissue paper pomanders, flower monograms, etc.). In the end I wanted our wedding to look simple yet elegant.
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? There are so many to name! Our favorite moments included our first look – it was nice to have a moment together before the ceremony and it calmed our nerves. It was also fun to see our loved ones feverishly wave the DIY streamers that my husband and I made. In fact, all our DIY stuff was worth it. I admit it got stressful sometimes making it, but to see everything on display at the wedding was very satisfying. Lastly, it was amazing to have all our friends and family come together to celebrate with us.
