This week has kept me super busy working on fun and exciting new things for Once Wed, so I apologize this real wedding post from the incredible Braedon Photography is up a day late. The adorable couple, Laura and Ryan, were married in an old rustic barn on a not-so-sunny California day.











The reception with all its charming details is up next…

Lovely, such a pretty bride. I love that she wore boots. I may do the same with getting married in Ireland with all the rain.

This wedding could not be more beautiful. I almost think that they are LUCKY it rained. That soft gray light on all the white dresses and flowers is perfection. Bright sunshine just wouldn’t have been the same.

Absolutely stunning. Congrats to the couple!

These photos are beautiful, and how lucky the photographer was that the bride and groom were willing to bare the rain for these beautiful portraits. And that bouquet is just perfect!

I think it’s fantastic that the bridesmaids were in off-white colors! That’s awesome, and the first time I’ve seen it.

I found the sweater! It’s from Anthropologie and it’s name is the “Small Packages Cardi.” I just ordered one for my wedding next week!

What an amazing job Tricia Fountaine (the floral designer/stylist) did with this theme. love it all!! The barn is available for events. Dos Pueblos Ranch, Santa Barbara, Ca.

I LOVE her dress! Does anyone know where it is from?

Jen | Reply

My guess is the dress was custom made. It is VERY close to Amsale’s Coco, however here the sweetheart is less exaggerated. It’s actually a lot prettier than Amsale’s style.

Amanda | Reply

Her dress was custom made. It’s in the oncewed pre-owned wedding dress section. She says it’s similar to an Amsale dress, Cassandra, if I recall correctly.

I absolutely love the sweater as well but as it is now September, it is no longer at Anthropologie. Does anyone know where I can purchase a worn one? Jamie – are you looking to sell? :) My wedding is in October so I am on the hunt!

Jessica Cooper | Reply
