Real Wedding: Lydia & James

This week’s Real Wedding features Lydia and James’s rose filled celebration at Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park, CA.

The bride wore a stunning Rosa Clara gown (very Audrey Hepburn!) and paired it with a lush bouquet of white roses. The couple held an outdoor ceremony that was full of modern white touches, including flowing drapery and hanging lanterns.

Real Wedding: Ann & Chris

This week’s Real Wedding hits close to home. Minnesota couple, Ann and Chris tied the knot on Ann’s family farm, Vogt Dairy Farm in Sauk Centre. MN.

The couples’ celebration was a unique DIY wedding that was true to the two of them. The bride’s mother, whom is a Master Gardener, grew most of the wedding flowers herself. One of her gardening friends also helped out by growing the hydrangeas that lined the aisle at the reception. The night before the wedding friends and family, including the entire bridal party, gathered together in the garage to put the finishing touches on the flower arrangements.

More DIY touches could be found throughout the venue. Pallets were broken down by the couple to make a sign with many directional points, showing not only where the wedding events were, but places in the world they have visited as a couple, and were important to them. Pint-size mason jars with chalkboard stickers, were hand-painted by the maid-of-honor and adorned with the names of the guests that they used for beverages all night. They also served as a gifts for guests to take home with them. The couples’ centerpieces consisted of wood slabs, mason jars, and the flower arrangements put together by the family. The wood slabs were from a downed tree in the woods on the farm that the groom cut up for the occasion.
