Goodness gracious, this next little numbers is darling with a capital D. It’s as though Help Me Get Hitched brought all this pretty together just to make me giddy with wedding glee. The cute personal details, the bountiful florals from Julie Stevens Design, the pretty paper details from The Aerialist Press and all the smiles in between is enough to make this blogger smitten. Larissa Cleveland Photography snapped up every little moment for us all to gush over, and we can do so in the full gallery of images!
From Help Me Get Hitched… Christine and Matt Cox dated for 10 years before they decided to get hitched, and I think it’s safe to say the bride started planning this wedding even before Matt popped the question. They were married at The Carneros Inn, located in the wine country of California. Christine, being a creative bride, thought of everything, from the candy apple favors to their send-off at the end of the night (on a tandem bike the groom bought as a wedding gift). The couple decided to play off their last name and since Cox is a type of apple, they went with an apple theme. The bride had the right idea by keeping it simple and classy at their modern, barn-like venue. The wedding party got prepared for the day in their country chic cottages at the inn. They stood in front of two wine barrels and crates full of green apples to say their “I do’s.” The cake had four layers of wainscoting, just like the walls at the dinner reception. The floral arrangements were in a mix of modern metal and warn wood boxes to keep with that modern barn feel. All the perfected detailed planning paid off with the perfect wedding day.
From the Bride… Matt and I based our wedding around two main themes: green apples and the tandem bicycle. We chose the green apple because the ceremony took place in The Carneros Inn’s apple orchard, and we chose the tandem bicycle because Matt is an avid cyclist. We wanted our wedding to feel warm and inviting for all of our guests. From the handmade table numbers to the “Christine & Matt” wedding labels, we wanted it to feel special and unlike any other. In the end it was by far the best day of our lives, and we love to look back at all the fabulous photos and reminiscence!
