Sweet & Simple DIY Garden Wedding

California DIY Garden WeddingSome of the sweetest soirees that come across my desk are the simple DIY weddings that are so lovingly hand-crafted by the Bride and Groom. It’s always a big score in my books and this California backyard wedding captured by Alyssa Marie Photography gets top marks. From the bright and cheery garden theme to the traditional Russian wedding cake (a nod to the bride’s heritage), right through to the fabulous ‘getaway bicycles‘, this wedding proves that sometimes the best things in life come in small packages!

From the photographer: It was a beautiful intimate backyard wedding shared with close friends & relatives. All the details of this wedding were absolutely gorgeous and easy things to make on your own! Tracy Williams & Laurie Stacey from COLORSAW design helped the overall garden theme come to life. Yana (bride) is Russian and had her family from Russia was watching the entire evening over skype while most of Bryan (groom) had his family flown in from Japan. They had so many cute ideas that made their evening really special like a symbolic balloon release & their personalized “get-away” bikes for their honeymoon. Their cake was a simple homemade traditional Russian layered honey cake.

Rustic Backyard Wedding by Adria Peaden Photography

It is not every day a wedding makes me look twice but this backyard beauty succeeded easily. It’s a wonderful mix of of homemade wedding goodness and sweet, rustic details both so simple yet so effective. Adria Peaden Photography captured this gorgeous couple and their equally gorgeous big day, which has me dreaming of warm summer nights. The swing (yes, the fabulous, rustic love swing built for two!), the beautiful ceremony arch, the cowgirl boots, and the pretty fairy lights twinkling through the trees… yes, I’m loving it all.
