This wedding makes me want to eat fish and chips and roast marshmallows over a beach campfire.  The bold color palette, the fun, quirky details, and the super sweet couple make for one inspiring wedding.  I especially love the buoy aisle decor!

Some details from the amazing photographers + invitation designers, The Goodness (multi-talended much?):

Don and Emily are adorable!  They were married in Watsonville, CA at Pajaro Dunes, where Emily’s family has been vacationing since she was young.  The venue is part beach condos, part campground, so they wanted to incorporate both of those things when planning the wedding.  We were excited to design their wedding invitations which featured their bold color palette, casual and quirky wording, and cute camping-related illustrations.  They did an amazing job decorating and incorporating the beach-camping theme – all DIY!  The flowers were done by the bride and her friends and family.  The centerpieces were old-fashioned lanterns (just like the ones in her invites!) and camping pots filled with beautiful summer dahlias and billy buttons, accented with sea stars.  Each place setting had a personal note from the couple and one of Emily’s cute drawings.  The favors were beach towels.  Their cake topper was almost 100 years old!  I believe it had been through 4 generations of weddings!  One unique thing during the ceremony was a twist on the sand ceremony.  Don and Emily had their mothers bring sand from their respective homes: Lake Michigan and the California coast.  Another very important part of the wedding is that Don and Emily are expecting!  I remember Don being so happy that their baby was there to share the day with them.  One of the highlights of the evening was announcing the baby’s gender during the reception – a girl! They are going to make fantastic parents!  The evening concluded with making s’mores at a bonfire on the beach!  A perfect ending to an amazing day!

Everytime I look at these photos I fall even more in love with it!  And how sweet is this couple and their baby on the way!?   For those of you who don’t know this, you find out the gender around the halfway mark, which means the bride was 4-5 months pregnant here.  She doesn’t look pregnant at all, except for that gorgeous radiant happy glow!  I already looked huge by this point.  Lucky girl 🙂

Congrats to the happy couple on their marriage and growing family!

So, I’d love to hear – what’s your favorite thing?  The bold palette, the gorgeous DIY (yes, DIY!) floral arrangements, the beachy-camp details…  So hard to choose just one!
