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.

From the photographer: This shoot was put together for a new cake company to feature in a Bridal show. It ended up being a fantastic experience. We used two models who are sisters and have been married for 6 years. Both of the girls got to put their own wedding dresses back on and feel like princesses for the day. Afterwards they told us ‘it was the most fun they had had in a long time.’  They were able to relive their wedding day all over again, only this time without the stress.They also loved how they got to enjoy the experience together. Because of this shoot, we have decided to start offering “group” Bridal sessions, not only for newlyweds, but also for those who have been married for quite some time.

In my opinion, there is no way you can’t adore this sweet country garden bouquet. With pops of cherry red blooms, soft pink roses and pretty daisies scattered throughout, it’s as pretty and fresh as the countryside itself. Not to mention, the gorgeous gingham ribbon to finish off the sweetheart appeal – adorable with a capital ‘A!’
