From the Bride…Hayden and I met in Florida through mutual friends. There’s a debate to this day as to who “courted” who, but after our first date we were inseparable. Hayden proposed at home (on a weeknight) because on the day he picked up my ring, he decided he couldn’t wait until we made it home to California! Originally, he had planned on proposing at his family’s Christmas party, but he is terrible at keeping secrets. So on that random weeknight in December, he told me he had gotten my last Christmas present, and the next thing I knew, he was proposing! We wanted a classic wedding with a rustic-chic vibe. My mother in law and I had so much fun creating the design for our day! I love earth tones, and adore succulents with their cool green, so we used those for favors and decided to accent that green with blush throughout the whole wedding – including our cake! Additionally, we loved the idea of guests bringing home a succulent because they are very resilient, and we thought it was the perfect way to “let love grow”. My favorite memory from the day was really captured in the wedding film. Our ceremony was so heartfelt but it was us to the core. It was funny, quirky, a little awkward and full of love. We love watching the film back and laughing. In our photos and film, you would have never known that in the midst of it all my sister in law had an allergic reaction and was rushed to the hospital. It’s a hilarious part of the day (wasn’t funny then) that we all still laugh about it. Everything else went perfectly and we said it must be good luck that SOMETHING went a little wrong. We had an amazing team that went above and beyond and it was a beautiful day. Special touch: mother in law made me a garter with fabric from her wedding dress.
