A legit seaside ceremony complete with toes in the sand followed by a backyard reception with scrumptious gourmet truck food kind of sounds like the best celebration on the planet and the crazy, blow-your-mind part is that the whole fabulous affair was thrown for less than $5000. I think there should be some kind of award for that. Sequins and Candy Photography was there to capture it all and you can see more of this insanely gorgeous couple and their budget beautiful wedding right here.
From Fawn of Sequins and Candy... Adrianna and Jerome were married on Sept 16, 2011. In loving memory of her father, she had his favorite baby blue silk scarf embroidered as a heart onto the back of her wedding dress. The groom surfed before the wedding at Cardiff State Beach and got ready at the parking lot in true surfer fashion in the back of a lime green restored Dodge truck. They each wrote letters to each other and read them before the ceremony. The ceremony was a small gathering on the beach with a raked aisle of sand, stones and beach blankets with the date and bride and grooms names embroidered. The reception was held at the pro skater Tony Hawk's home and was catered by MIHO Gastrotruck. The centerpieces were ceramic vases made by the groom, and the tables were lined with burlap and tree stumps. The groom's sister made wood blocks and burned into the wood quotes and the couples initials. It was a fresh, organic and chic wedding. The invites were water-colored by hand, including the maps. It was all done for less than $5,000.
