Amanda and Josh were married at Rancho Buena Vista Adobe in Vista, Calif. on March 28. “From the moment we walked through the gates, we had a great feeling about it,” Amanda said. “It had the ambiance we were looking for and we knew we wouldn’t have to do much more to create a gorgeous setting.” The bride wore a strapless fitted lace gown with casual wavy hair. She carried a pink and white bouquet made of peonies, roses, ranunculeses, hyacinthes, tulips, and freesias. Her ‘maids donned short muted pink dresses with white embroidery on the bodice. They carried bouquets of ranunculuses, roses, sweet peas, among other pretty blooms. Her groom and his men opted for tan dress pants and vests, and went without a tie for a more casual look. The two littlest attendants carried a burlap banner that read “Here comes the bride” before Amanda’s dad escorted her down the aisle to wed Josh in front of 175 friends and family members. The reception followed with a taco dinner and an iced bundt cake for dessert. Each table featured a DIY floral mason jar centerpiece with burlap and lace decor on top of a wooden slab. Amanda and Josh’s main priority was that everyone had a fabulous time. “I didn’t want to be stressing about everything being a particular color or wedding favors or fancy place settings,” Amanda noted. “What mattered is that everyone was able to get an invite, that we had good music, everyone was fed, and everyone was comfortable.” How sweet!

Channing and Kellan were married at The Barn at Evergreen Park in Evergreen, Co. on June 7. The bride stunned in a lace gown with a portrait neckline. She wore her hair in a simple updo and carried a bouquet of pink, green, and white blooms and berries. Her bridesmaids donned short champagne-colored dresses and carried bouquets with the same blooms. The groom wore traditional military attire, while his men wore black suits and matching bow ties. “When we started planning, we immediately loved the idea of a mountain wedding,” Channing said. “We wanted a location with lots of natural beauty that didn’t need a lot of decorating.” The bride and groomed tied the knot in front of a small group of 75 friends and family members in a traditional ceremony. Afterwards, guests made their way to the rustic barn, where they sat at wooden banquet tables with floral center pieces. Guests dined on BBQ pulled pork, chicken, and beef brisket. Dinner was followed by toasts, a three-tiered cake adorned with flowers, and of course dancing. Channing and Kellan realized there were certain reception elements they simply could not do without. “We decided we had to have good food, good beer, and a great band at the reception.” At the end of the night the guests formed a tunnel of sparklers for the newlyweds to run through and begin their life as husband and wife. Channing’s best advice? “Things don’t always go as planned,” she said. “Expect that things will change and bounce back when something unexpected happens.” See the full board here.

Logan and Percy were married at Paniolo Ranch in Boerne, Texas on November 9. The bride looked gorgeous in her fit ‘n flare sweetheart lace gown, topped off with an intricate updo and a birdcage veil. She carried a bouquet of lavender roses, green hydrangea, and calla lilies, paired with fiddlehead fern curls. Her ‘maids donned short deep purple dresses, a perfect fit for Fall. The groom and his groomsmen looked dapper in matching gray suits. Framed photos of the couple and family members, along with ceremony programs, were displayed on a wooden table near the ceremony location. Logan and Percy were married outside at dusk under a giant tree with gorgeous hanging lights giving off a very romantic aesthetic. “The weather was perfect,” Logan gushed. “It was nice and cool with the smallest breeze. Absolutely perfect weather for a wedding. I could hear the strings playing, I was so anxious to get down that aisle!” Afterwards, guests dined at round tables with deep purple accents, and sat in chivari chairs. Each table featured a centerpiece filled with green and purple blossoms and curly branches. Guests danced and socialized on the outdoor patio, which was all lit up with string lights. The five-tiered cake was a green hue and was adorned with cascading purple flowers. The happy couple was sent off into married life with sparklers from their guests. Logan’s wish for engaged couples? “RELAX! Its your special day, don’t stress. Get things done early enough rather than last minute,” she said. See the full board here.

Ashley + Randy: A Rustic Summer California Garden Wedding by Hearts & Horseshoes Photography
Posted by Sarah Title. Filed under Real Weddings

Ashley and Randy were married at Dallidet Adobe and Gardens in San Luis Obispo, Calif. on June 21. The bride stunned in a lace illusion halter dress with a bedazzled belt and opted for a soft wavy hairstyle. She carried a bouquet of peonies, ranunculuses, astilbes, and lavender sprig, wrapped in lace and burlap. Her ‘maids donned short pale purple chiffon dresses with necklines of their choice. The groom and his men wore gray three-piece suits and purple neckties. “I really wanted to create a laid back, intimate atmosphere that reflected Randy and I as a couple,” Ashley said. Intimate it was, only 40 guests watched (while wearing their sunglasses favors), as Ashley and Randy exchanged vows in what Ashley described as a “secret garden.” The welcome table featured monogrammed letters for guests to sign, along with glass jugs asking for donations to Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America as well as a personal adventure fund. Guests learned of their seating assignments from DIY chalkboard plaques. They sat at round tables with white linens and burlap and lace table runners. Each table featured floral centerpieces that sat atop vintage books, monogrammed letters, and marbles. “All the food was gluten free, including the cake,” Ashley said. Photos of the couple were hung on string and wrapped around a tree for a natural look. Guests took home jars of homemade jam at the end of the night! Ashely’s advice to engaged couples? “Keep things in perspective,” she said. “The most important thing on your wedding day is that you’re making a commitment with the love of your life. At the end of the day, if you ended up married, it was successful!” See the full board here.
