How precious is this wedding??? All put together by family and friends. So much love….beautiful photography….and it probably doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom are rather easy on the eyes, too! ;) Below is a little interview with Molly…

What made you fall in love with Max? Max first won me over by his looks. I mean, look at him. But very quickly I saw his humor, which is exactly like mine, and that drew me to him initially. But the thing that made me want to marry Max was the way he treated me. Never before have I been treated with such respect and love by a man. Never have I been so cherished and taken care of. I have never felt more myself and never been pushed so much to be a better person, daughter, sister, friend, lover. Max makes me a better me. I wouldn’t want to be anyone else and I wouldn’t want to be that with anyone other than Max.

Why did you choose your venue? We wanted an outdoorsy feel for our wedding and Max works for the Boy Scouts so we started looking at all the Boy Scout camps in the So Cal area and found this one. It was perfectly tucked away in the hills of Orange County so we could be as loud as we wanted for as long as we wanted and we were able to use the camp all weekend so we stayed there the night before and after. It also had a little amphitheater which was perfect for the ceremony.

Where did your inspiration for your decor come from? We wanted it to look like we were on a picnic. Max and I love packing up a picnic and going to the park so we set out blankets for people to sit on during the ceremony. We also gathered a bunch of vintage table cloths and sheets to cover the tables and all the flowers looked like they had been picked from a garden. There was also a Native American feel. Lots of chevron stripes and I wore moccasins. Our decor was kind of all over the place but we were at a camp so I think it all meshed together pretty well.

Can you describe some of your favorite moments as you look back on your wedding day? My best friend grabbed me the morning of the wedding when I was trying to figure out how to help with set up and she said “This is YOUR day. You are not helping. I’m taking you back to the room where we will put our pajamas back on, hang out, laugh and probably nap.” We did just that. It was the best ‘morning before the wedding’ ever! Once it was time for the ceremony, I felt so calm and rested and ready to marry the man of my dreams. Another moment I loved was when all the little kids that had come to the wedding gathered together and walked down the aisle yelling “The bride is coming. The bride is coming.” right before I walked down.

THANK YOU Once Wed for featuring our wedding!!! And thank YOU for all your sweet comments :) The rings were found on Ebay. Max picked mine out WITHOUT my help. Let’s just say he’s a pretty great gift giver. And we found his ring together. We are still amazed at how perfectly they match. They are from the 20’s and we like to pretend that they were made for a man and wife and then the rings were separated when the couple died. Okay that sounds a little morbid, but then we imagine that we found the rings and reunited them. Cheese, I know :) The invitations were made by Wiley Valentine but the chevron stripes on the back are from a painting by the amazing Joanna Goss (joannagoss.com). Thanks again Once Wed!!! xoxox. the bride

First off, I don’t think this couple could be any more attractive. They are both so unbelievably gorgeous. Second, I want to live in this wedding. It just feels so honest and raw, like they’re not about to put on any pretenses just for the sake of the guests. And I love that.

This old dock in front of a quite pond is accented with florals and blankets in a muted palette that don't detract from the greyed wood, while handmade ice candles give a delicate nod to the season.
