There’s no doubt about it — California weddings have that undeniable “it” factor. That sense of too-cool-for-school spunk that’s just not found anywhere else. But the very best part of West Coast weddings? The cream of the crop vendors California brides have right at their fingertips. Photographers like Emily Blake and planners like Kensington Ryan Event who were able to help take this pretty backyard wedding to the next level. Catch every fun-filled moment right over here.
From the Bride…Our Wedding was a dream come true. Both Chris and my parents celebrated their nuptials at the parents homes so we thought we should keep the tradition alive. Our vision was this; an upscale backyard BBQ with 220 of our closet friends and family, a killer dance floor, a stocked bar , a menu that made coming back for seconds, and anything on top of that was icing on the cake. Our wedding day would not have happened if we didn’t have the amazing vendors we did, the late night crafting parties and most importantly the support of all our families and friends.
