Colorful Central California Wedding from Alders Photography
May 10, 2011
United States

This California wedding is one of those weddings I wish, wish, wish that I could have been on the guest list. The colors, the setting, the cake, the everything - it's all pretty fabulous. There were even a couple guests of the canine variety present - and they dressed for the occasion. To top it all off, it was captured stunningly by one of our favorites, Alders Photography. This wedding is the equivalent of the butterflies in your stomach the first time you meet that special someone, in party form. So special. When you need more, let those butterflies lead you to the gallery!

The vision for our wedding was a garden on a perfect summer, sunny day. Lots of trees and shade, so obviously, McCormick Home Ranch was just perfect! There were so many DIY details, from the personalized picture invitation booklet, right down to the centerpieces.

Our table numbers were named after Monopoly properties, a favorite game of ours, and included a little bit of trivia about our relationship. The place cards were named after Monopoly pieces. Our friend Daniel Urrutia, personally designed all our wedding stationery.

Our colors were orange and lime green, which looked absolutely fabulous on a summer day. My bridesmaids wore orange dresses with lime green peep toe wedges, while the groomsmen wore khaki colored suits with orange ties. The ring bearers carried our ring on little hay bales.
