Angel and Ryan wanted to have a sophisticated and comfortable wedding with a great party. She loves to dance, he loves great food and beer and together they love entertaining family and friends. Coming from Nevada, these two wanted to create a great getaway for their guests and ultimately decided to bring everyone along with them to Wine Country. Keeping with their theme of sophisticated comfort, Angel and Ryan found a sweet private residence called the Oak Leaf Retreat in Healdsburg, CA to tie the knot. Many of the wedding day elements held some sort of significance to the couple and many of the details were created by either them or family members.
The DIY elements of the day:
Tables – wine bottle hurricane cut by groom, wood planks for the runner, interspaced bud vases (put together by the bride’s stepsisters) and simple but elegant candles and succulents. Necklace – made by bride’s mom featuring grandma’s brooch (who was at the wedding); Table names – Beers with couple related theme (groom and bride love craft beers); Escort Cards – created by the Bride’s stepsister are embossed coasters tagged with names to take home if desired. All paper goods/programs/invites – created by a friend of the groom. DIY photo booth. Drink Stirrer Flags with song quotes for signature cocktail (a Pimm’s cup, the bride love’s music); Triangle dinner bell – from the bride’s step mom (we had one growing up) for getting guests attention for speeches or kisses. Several wooden signs for direction. Lighting – by the Bride’s Dad.
