A DIY Malibu Ranch Celebration
Today I am so excited to show you this sweet Malibu wedding from Feather Love Photography. Jenny and Luc are both graphic designers so their playful, creative spirits came to life through every detail of the evening. I just adore the twinkle lights hanging from the trees at the ceremony–so lovely and enchanting!
With the hopes of saving money, I went all out DIY: designed letterpress invites, inserts, labels, ‘Save the Date’ coasters, RSVP custom-stamped vintage postcards, scoured the internet for vintage postage stamps, designed our wedding website [http://jennyandluc.com], ordered flowers direct from the farm, found all vendors, made all iPod playlists for the party, etc. and .. eventually I learned how to ask for help. We wrangled some amazingly talented friends and loved ones to participate and they helped make it a magical day.
I planned the wedding over the course of a year while working fulltime/freelancing as a graphic designer. I felt the most creatively fulfilled when working on this huge project. (Dear Brides, I would love to help you/discuss any print/web design or event design ideas).
So many evenings when Luc would come home from work (he is also a graphic designer at a branding firm), we would bounce ideas back and forth, and below is a portion of the questions we asked ourselves in order to create the best wedding imaginable:
Where do we want to get married?
Under a big tree (major bonus for a carousel, ferris wheel, and huge pavilion nearby)
Should we include Prince’s: “Dearly Beloved. We are gathered here today to get through this thing called Life. Electric word life that means forever…” in our vow ceremony?
Stay tuned for Part II of this fabulous couple’s wedding coming up next!
