Real Wedding: Elizabeth & Brian

Today we get to reminisce about the beautiful celebration that was Liz and Brian's wedding! I had such a great time working with this couple to pull together all the beautiful details of their special day. They gave a whole new meaning to the term DIY wedding! I got to spend the days leading up to the wedding with the bride's mom, aunts and friends making all of the floral centerpieces and bouquets. The groom, himself, even made the hummus appetizer! Such a fun couple! Enjoy these beautiful photos by Emma of Honey Honey Photography.

Liz wanted very soft, elegant looking bouquets in shades of white and blush pink with touches of greenery. We made her bouquets mainly out of roses, hypercurium berries, and lisianthus, and then tied them all with long ribbon and lace streamers to add movement and fun texture. So much more exciting than just a plain old satin ribbon! The boutonnieres were tied together with twine to add a nice vintage looking touch.

The bride and groom (along with their friends and family) put together all of the cute DIY details found throughout the wedding. There were custom signs, fun desserts, a whole appetizer station, and games for guests to play during cocktail hour. The groom even made little signs out of scrabble tiles, because the two of them love playing games together. What a great personal touch!

Thank you so much to all of the vendors who helped make this wedding fabulous!

Reception Venue: The Casino San Clemente
Caterer: Jay's Catering
Photobooth: Pink Shutter
Florals: Cassandra Dyane Weddings & Events (plus the Bride's friends and family)

Congratulations to Liz and Brian! We hope you have many, many happy years together!
