A little over a month ago, I had the pleasure of attending the beautiful wedding of two friends. It was held at the bride’s parents’ home just off California’s Central Coast. It was an amazing gathering of friends and family, where the emphasis was on celebrating with the couple and having a great time. There was good food, ample drink (alongside margaritas, the brother of the bride made six varieties of beer especially for the occasion), and a live band to ensure dancing ’til the wee hours.
Before the wedding, I had fun with helping with some of the last minute DIY projects (signs, photo sets). My friends are so creative!
Lis designed these simple wedding signs that were perfect for the theme. (Thumbtacks, wood, and stain. Genius!!)
I went crazy with the flower photos because they were irresistible. (Arranged by Panacea Flowers) This is one of the bridesmaid bouquets — I love the feathers!
They had high boys set up for pre-ceremony cocktails and ceremony overflow. I love the dual-purpose blue bottled water that served as refreshments, while adding a pop of color to the space.
Here’s the fun photo set put together by some of the wedding party and friends. It was definitely a hit with the guests!
Another photo opportunity, this one slightly more interactive!
The beautiful flowers were arranged in assorted vintage vases and containers.

Pie! There was lots and lots of pie.
The selection stayed stocked throughout the night.
This huge protea blossom was enhanced by the pink glow of the sunset — stunning!
The clear tent made for a great view of the sunset.

I had a wonderful time with great people, and I especially loved reconnecting with one of my BFFs! (Her husband’s cowboy hat made the rounds that night. . .)
One of the most fun weddings I’ve been to, and with pretty details to match. The newlyweds are off to a fabulous start!
