This couple wanted to keep things simple and relaxed and do most of their wedding themselves.  The florals were DIY, the decor and signs were DIY, the bride even made the groom’s tie, and the groom made all four types of beer served to the guests.  The bride even got a wedding day tattoo of the groom’s initials behind her ear.  That’s love!

During the processional, when my father and I were coming up through the vineyard, Robby and I had asked the DJ to play the bridal march, then scratch the disc, and play the imperial march from Star Wars. I am a bit of a dork, but mostly thought it would be hilarious to have this ominous sound track playing as I approached the altar. Everyone started laughing and my nervousness disappeared completely (OK, almost completely). It took some of the seriousness out of the affair and reminded me that we were here to celebrate, and to be ourselves.

{how did you make your wedding you?}
We wanted to have a relaxed feel to our wedding. Robby and I have been together for 5 years, own a home together, have a pup together, so we kind of did things backwards when compared to tradition. We wanted to have a celebration of our union and to bring together our friends and family for a beautiful party. A stuffy formal ballroom just wouldn’t have felt appropriate. We lucked out with absolutely gorgeous weather, fine friends, and a truly great experience. 

Don’t you love those bright yellow bouquets, and the DIY florals with the DIY painted mason jar containers?  And I so love the bride’s style – that birdcage veil, Claire Pettibone gown, rosette shoes, all on such a gorgeous bride.  And what a fun sense of humor – I’ve never heard of anyone playing the Imperial March from Star Wars as the Processional, and it might be the best thing ever.  I love that they let their personalities shine through, and created some humor in a usually super serious moment.
