FROM THE COUPLE:

CREATIVE ASPECT
We wanted the wedding to feel rustic and personal, so we made most of our decorations, including the arrow place cards and succulent pots on each reception table. We hit flea markets and antique stores to find a lot of historic bottles that we used for the centerpieces, so each table looked slightly different than the rest. Also, because the wedding party was in several different colors, we decided to keep the flowers classic and simple and only have white flowers for the table and bouquets. We also had a great popcorn bar with bags of popcorn labeled “Our Love is Poppin’! Stephanie & Kyle, 7-18-15”.

FAVORITE DETAIL
I LOVED our dessert table. We had pie and hand pies instead of wedding cake. so we had to make sure everything fit on the table. We used cake stands from family and friends and I painted a few signs for the different types of hand pies. We also had a few old family wedding photos that were included on the table to lend another personal touch.

OTHER ASPECTS
Our wedding was rustic, homemade, and very personal. Although we could have bought decorations or other items for the wedding, we thought that by making them it would add so much more meaning to the day and the surroundings. We did everything with love and excitement about our wedding, and I think it showed. The day was relaxed and fun, with great food and music. It was everything we could have wanted on a rainy July day in southern California.

MEMORABLE MOMENT
The ceremony is something I will never forget. It started about 30 minutes late due to the rain and was in a completely different area than we had planned. We had the ceremony in the reception area under a large metal-roofed pavilion. We could hear the sound of raindrops tapping on the metal roof as we said our vows, surrounded by our friends and family that were standing, gathered in a circle around us.

BRIDE’S ADVICE
Remember what the day is for! Our wedding was in southern California in July, where there was a wildfire, dust storms and it rained ALL day long, which we were not expecting at all! We had to rush to redo almost all of our photo locations and even our ceremony location. But in the end, I was there to marry my best friend and we were there to celebrate our love and start our lives together. Whenever I would remember that, all of the problems just faded to the background.
