Today’s first wedding is total charm. The bride’s big sister actually submitted it to Style Me Pretty, which is so super cute, as she was so blown away by the chic, DIY touches and charming home-grown feel that the gorgeous bride and groom infused.  Held in Spanish Oaks Ranch in Santa Margarita, CA, you guys are going to love this one!

From Emily, the brides sister…

My sister, Aly, and her fiance are both teachers, so they wanted to use elements like apples and chalkboards in their decor.  Aly wanted the vibe to be casual yet elegant…it was a ranch-style setting amongst huge oak trees and rolling hills, complete with a barn, lake, and grassy knolls.  The color scheme: black and white and granny-apple green, very chic, and was balanced by some “down-home” elements like mason jars filled with flowers and candles, mini burgers and a french fry bar (sweet potato fries, garlic fries, blue cheese fries and regular fries to be exact – yum!), even fresh baked apple-shaped cookie favors (made by our grandma and sister Annie!).

So much more to come!

PS…Dress is Vera, waiting on info about those cute shoes!
