Laid Back DIY Wedding in the Los Angeles Hills

Today, we are so elated to be sharing this fun wedding in Los Angeles! If you are yearning for a summer wedding, these two lovebirds did a stellar job at creating a fun atmosphere well into the night. We loved Kyle and Natalia’s vintage wedding theme, and all of their fun DIY wedding decor details.

From the Bride:

The inspiration for our wedding was our hometown- Los Angeles. We knew early on in the wedding planning process that we would have an LA wedding. We met in Los Angeles ten years ago during our final semester in college. We’ve always viewed the city as an extension of our relationship, and wanted our friends and family to share in the closeness we felt to the city.

We were looking to find an outdoor venue that felt unique yet also represented our laid-back vibe. Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, a public park in Culver City, had just opened a new area, and we would be the first couple to get married there!

Seeing as our venue was a public park, it would truly need to be a DIY wedding. We brought in everything from the bathrooms to the blankets our guests sat on. We relied heavily on our incredibly talented friends and family to be part of our event for hair & makeup, flowers, decor projects, music, comedic toasts and even officiating. Having the involvement of those closest to us furthered the importance and intimacy of the event.

Blue Vintage Wedding Inspiration with European Decor

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this European-inspired nuptial with you all! Filled with an array of vintage wedding touches, we can’t take our eyes off of this decadent piece. This charming old world venue was built in the early 1900s. Created to resemble a villa in Florence, this house is the epitome of high society. From its serene walled garden to its tall ceilings painted with gold, this breathtaking venue is the ultimate place to exchange I DOs.

We are really enjoying the neutral color palette, filled with soft creamy colors and majestic navy hues. These two colors are a classic pairing, and make a truly great wedding theme, no matter the time of year. The carefully crafted floral letterpress invitations are sophisticated and allow guests to be swept off their feet from the moment they open up the wonderful news. Romantic and stately, these wedding invitations make a stunning accompaniment to the regal wedding theme. Yet, the delicate, hand-painted wedding cake may just be one of our favorite pieces of all!

Grey Classic Wedding on High Grove Estate

Today, we are so overjoyed to be sharing this stunning classic wedding inspiration with you all! Set on an elegant Southern estate overlooking Lake Laurel, you’ll quickly see why these vendors fell in love with its vintage charm.

Perfect for any time of the year, this chic color palette is neutral enough to be used during any season. We love the various grey hues, and baby blue colors paired with just a hint of mint. Though this wedding feels traditional, it also encompasses some boho style flare. This swoon-worthy wedding dress has an embroidered lace bodice with an illusion neckline. If that doesn’t make you fall head over heels, the cathedral train will!

Their elegant floral watercolor invitations set the tone for this event. Filled with soft creams, pastel blues, and chic grey tones, this vintage design perfectly matches the reception decor.

A Blue Wedding in New Mexico

Today, we are sharing a darling wedding to honor Jacquelyn and Peter!

This charming wedding took place in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Their stunning religious ceremony was later followed by a relaxing outdoor reception at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya. Located in the Sandia Mountains, this Resort & Spa captures the real beauty of the Southwest.

We love the amazing pops of blue throughout their entire wedding theme; and those creamy white floral bouquets are so stunning, they almost take our breath away! Jacquelyn and Peter picked fun wedding colors, and we are smitten with their attention to detail- from Jacquelyn’s jewelry to their blue and gold wedding cake. This blue wedding works beautifully for any season!
