More from Amanda:
To create a seamless transition from the natural surroundings, we included desert inspired wildflowers, bougainvillea and freshly cut olive leaves on the tables. Wooden bowls and rusted copper vessels filled with a bounty of fresh fruit and herbs adorned the table tops as if we had gathered them just hours before. Our menu was local and organic and the wine we poured was from Will’s family’s vineyard. The beauty and warmth of the gathering was only surpassed by the knowledge and comfort of being united with the man I knew God had always planned for me.
And be sure to come back tomorrow to see the beautiful Super8 film of the event!!

While outdoor wedding venues are almost always our favorites, we know that it’s just not realistic for a lot of couples. If you dream of an elegant garden wedding, then there’s no better way to bring the outdoors in than with gorgeous flowers.
