Quality Time

We wanted the wedding vibe to be relaxed and all about family. Since our two families have been friends for years, pretty much everyone on the guest list knew each other. We wanted to choose a place where everyone could come, have fun, relax, and spend quality time together.

Custom details

At the ceremony site we had a custom “Uncle Bruce, Here Comes Your Bride” sign made, that was carried by two of our nephews. We also had custom “Almost Mr. & Mrs. Olson” flag straws made for the guest’s lemonade, along with custom fans to help keep our guests cool.

Chic decor

Since our venue was so vibrant, I wanted our décor to be subtle yet chic. We worked around a white and gold theme, from the flowers to the final touches. With the help of Artisan Event Floral Decor, our flowers were white phalaenopsis orchids, white hydrangea, white garden roses, and blush tea roses. We accented the space with gold sequined table cloths and gold and white throw pillows in the hammocks and on the couches.

Stick together

My best advice to a bride that’s planning is to stick together during the reception. It may seem obvious, but it’s so easy to each get pulled in different directions. Everyone wants a piece of your time, and there are so many faces you haven’t seen in a while. Bruce and I decided not to separate during the night, and I’m so glad we did. Whether we were thanking guests, or on the dance floor, we did it together.

Sweet And Pretty Orange Wedding

orange bridesmaid bouquet

The inspiration for Hannah and Zac’s sweet and pretty orange wedding came from the idea her grandpa had taught her when she was just a little girl. He was explaining the idea of marriage as he sliced an orange. She listened as he told her how the two halves of the cut orange made the whole. He described how he was not whole without her grandma. How sweet!

Hannah wanted that special story to be part of her special day, and thus her color palette was born. The pops of orange paired with the greenery of the silver dollar eucalyptus served as the focal point of the wedding. See all the orange details in the full gallery here, photographed by Lindsey Marie Photography.

Calm From The Storm

The morning of the wedding I woke up to the sound of thunder and a stormy sky. Something I didn’t plan for. As my bridesmaids and I got ready in the bridal cottage the sounds of rain against the window gave me a sense of peace of walking down the aisle towards my soon to be husband!

The Rainy Bright Side

As the ceremony began the rain subsided giving the guests a small break from the July rainfall. As we said our vows under the dewy eucalyptus archway the clouds broke and as we were pronounced husband and wife the rain fell. It was something I could have never planned but made my wedding incredibly memorable. The oak trees and vineyards served as such a fresh and clean background, and the rainy day just added that extra touch! It was the perfect day.

Paperclip To The Rescue

If there was something I could have changed about my wedding it was to bring a mini sewing kit with me! I know I had read that somewhere but when the day came I didn’t have one with me. It would have came in handy when a clasp on my dress broke and my coordinator had to fasten it with a paperclip. Luckily the paperclip held up the entire ceremony and reception!
