From Marisa Holmes Photography… I’m excited to share this DIY wedding from an amazing bride! She wanted a Classic and Romantic wedding with a little Southern Charm thrown in. She definitely accomplished that with the soft white, blush and grey color palette and personalized monogramming from her veil down to her table runners! See below for the brides point of view on her inspiration… I must say I am smitten with all the monogramming and letters!
From the beautiful Bride…Travis and I started dating in High School and after 12 years we decided it was finally time to take the next step and become Mr. and Mrs. Tyson. With us being the last of our friends to get married, everyone was very excited for us and to celebrate our big day. Travis and I are very close with our families and wanted an intimate and personal wedding as much as we could with as many close friends that we have. My parents always wanted to give me a dream wedding, and it was just that.
We wanted a soft and romantic feel to the wedding and the Ponte Family Estates Winery provided the perfect atmosphere for it with soft color tones, beautiful white garden roses lining the vineyard and gorgeous crystal chandeliers in the vineyard pavilion that held our reception. Travis and I live only a few cities away from Temecula but when we go out to the vineyards we always feel like we are miles away from home. We wanted our guests to feel the same way. Many of our friends and family stayed at the vineyard the entire weekend making it a mini vacation of their own surrounding us with love and laughter the entire weekend.
Travis’s Uncle conducted the ceremony that Travis and I both wrote, and he included his personal touches which included a part where each of our parents and grandparents provided us with well wishes for our future together. My mom is the most creative woman I know and the personal touches throughout the wedding were all created by my mom from the monogramming, to the signs, the thank you menus, to the favor cards. She took my vision and brought it to life.
For our first dance we had a pianist place a baby grand piano and create a special rendition of Can’t Help Falling in Love With You just for us. For the rest of the night, every guest was on the dance floor dancing their hearts out. We used our playful sense of humors and provided our guests with clappers and streamer poppers to use as we left the reception to continue the celebration with our guests at Ponte Inn. It was truly the personal touches and the love from our friends and family that we will remember our day by.
