Write-up by the bride:
"We wanted our wedding to be vintage, yet classy and very summery. Natalie suggested the term rustic elegance wedding which really captured our vision. I also wanted to incorporate summer fruits and berries. One of my favorite summer memories is of my Dad and I picking blackberries in our backyard, then making jam. We ended up making 140 jars of blackberry jam for favors! Natalie came up with the idea of adding fresh peaches to decorate the tables, which not only gave the centerpieces a summery touch, but also smelled wonderful.
I wanted to have a beautiful wedding, the kind you stare at in wedding magazines and dream of every since you watched your first Disney movie. I love entertaining and working with themes, color palettes, and décor, so I could hardly wait to plan my special day. Especially since I married a Spaniard and was having family and friends fly over from Spain, I wanted a traditional American wedding, but one with enough pizazz to wow my guests and make sure they enjoyed themselves. Alejandro and I loved how our vintage summery Southern California wedding turned out since our guests from Spain viewed this as a wedding in the movies!
