A few more details for you to devour..the seating card rocks were purchased at home depot then hand-crafted by the bride with typed cards and yellow yarn. The adorable cupcakes were made by Hennings Cake and the PERFECT flowers were designed by Anna + Maggie La Play, family friends of the bride. The cute couple also hired Ahnika Johnson, who is just launching her wedding planning business, to coordinate the day.

My job is SO much more fun when I get to talk about weddings like this one. It’s total perfection, from the chic yellow color palette to the adorable succulents and the handmade details…I am totally and completely smitten with every last bit of it. Plus, I got to find a new photographer to stalk, Linda Chaja, so I am a really happy girl right now.

The best part about this lovely wedding is that the bride and groom made so many of the details with their own two hands. It has that great handmade charm while still being super chic, super sophisticated. The drift wood arch was made by the groom, the cones placed on aisle chairs contained knitted pom poms made by the bride and the program was designed and typed by the bride on a vintage typewriter. It was a total DIY affair and the result is total charm, total gorgeousness.

Some yummy, yummy details…

The couple wanted the wedding & details to be very casual and due to budget made most of the details themselves. The affair was held at QAD Inc. in Summerland, California. QAD is an international software company located on top of a hill/mountain over looking the ocean. The company/location is not open to the public for events. The bride’s father is a personal friend of the president of QAD and allowed them to host their wedding there for free! How’s that for thinking outside the box?

The stunning bride wore a dress by Pronvias, a pair of fabulous yellow shoes by BCBG. Her AMAZING hair was done by Michay Salon and she did her own perfect make-up.  Adorable bridesmaids dresses are Alexis Adamour found at Bloomies for 40% off. Headbands were designed and crafted by the beautiful bride herself!
