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.

Timeless Traditional Wedding Inspiration in Charleston

Today, we are swooning over this breathtaking styled shoot. Hosted in the ever-romantic Charleston, this wedding does not disappoint. This historic venue has been around since the 1900s, and has everything a girl could want on her big day- from the striking wood floors to the heavenly windows that let in an abundance of natural sunlight. If you want a traditional wedding with a bit of a twist, take note of what this talented team put together.

From the grey tablescape, blooming yellow flowers, and delicate letterpress invitations, we are loving how these dreamy colors and textures effortlessly complement one another. The bride’s unique wedding dress is the real star of the show though. We cannot take our eyes off of its stunning lace top! The bride’s soft makeup look and elegant up-do are truly a look to remember.

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!

Boho Style Vintage Wedding Inspiration in the Rain

Today, we are swooning over this romantic garden wedding. If you’re forecasting rain on your wedding day, have no fear! This dreamy vintage wedding inspiration will show you how to look stunning even during moody weather.

From the classic gold wedding rings, softly flowing wedding dress, and custom peach bourbon cocktail, we are smitten with this rustic outdoor wedding. Most people wouldn’t think to have their wedding in a nursery, but this expansive backyard is filled with an array of perennials, herbs, and native Georgia plants. What could be more romantic than a garden wedding in the South?

This Wedding Paper Divas invitation suite helps complete their vintage wedding theme. With just a few rustic touches, the theme really comes alive. No matter what type of wedding the two of you are planning on, just make sure that it’s true to the two of you!

Spring-Inspired Simple Vintage Wedding in a Winery

Today, we are swooning over this vintage wedding inspiration from Virginia. Perfect for spring, we are loving all of the natural sunlight within this stunning winery. Everything from the bride’s long lace wedding dress to her stylish up-do, makes us do a double take. This is the type of styled shoot that makes a girl feel nostalgic.

We love all of the delicate, vintage touches. From the premium letterpress invitations to the gold chargers on the tablescape, we are swooning over what this creative team put together for the season. Green, pink, and orange have never looked so good together! The whole piece is dreamy and effortlessly romantic.

Dreams Come True Spring Boho Wedding

Today, we have fallen in love with this sweet fairytale inspiration. From youthful spring wedding colors to angelic butterflies, there is so much to swoon over within this styled shoot! If you enjoy vintage decor, we know you’ll enjoy this fun boho wedding.

The premium, floral laser cut wedding invitations inspired this fabulous team of wedding vendors. The relaxed, garden wedding venue exudes some bohemian flare without overpowering the reception decor. The funky mason jar glasses, gold silverware, and varying array of plants scattered across the tablescape tie in the theme so well!

The 3-D Our Ever After sign may be our favorite piece of all. It really kicks the wedding theme up a notch, and helps the cohesion come full circle. It’s details like these that give us butterflies.

Tip: If you and your partner aren’t needing lengthy transpiration, consider a more retro way to travel from the wedding reception to your overnight hotel! This vintage Vespa could not be any more adorable. Add this option to your list of potential wedding exit ideas.
