Real Wedding - Susan and Joe

Susan and Joe were married in Lake Arrowhead, California and had the amazing Sarah K. Chen as their photographer. They choose the location because it holds a lot of sentimental value for Susan, she was born and raised in the area and it also perfectly captured the "whimsical and rustic" theme they were striving for. Susan was kind enough to put together some collages of all the details and offer up some explanations of the different projects they put together: After finding those gorgeous indigo dresses on sale at jcrew, Susan made the decision on her wedding colors. She liked the dresses because she thought the blue would go with the color of the lake, and finding them on sale was the push she needed! The champagne color was added in to incorporate the color of the sash on her dress, and a color scheme was born. And about all those beautiful details, here are some descriptions from Susan, "My brother made the stump the cake sat on, as well as the stumps for the escort cards. My mom and I bought fabric to overlay the tables with for $1 a yard at the garment district in Los Angeles! We bought twig vine on sale at potterybarn and gave it to our florist to use on the arch. The pashmina’s were bought for $2 each on Canal Street in NYC and tied with leftover ribbon used for a few other random wedding things. The frames were bought from Ikea and spray painted brown." "My stepmom made the nests the surrounded the hurricanes, the ring bearer nests, the flowergirl basket, the “Oh Happy Day” lettering for the cake table, and the ‘Mr’ & ‘Mrs’ chair signs. She used moss found at a craft store and her trusty hot glue gun to get her through the projects. She got the flowers for the centerpieces and cake the day before the wedding at the flower mart in Los Angeles. I designed the table name signs and framed table name photos using photoshop and vintage photographs of lakes found online. The invitations were designed by ignafruit on etsy, I then added the grossgrain bow, and vellum polka dot overlay. " And if you haven't already noticed, they also had a getaway boat at the end of the night! Such a beautiful wedding, thank you so much for sharing it Susan.
