Casual Ojai Wedding

After last Friday’s sneak peak, I have been so thrilled to share this adorable wedding with you! Nancy Neil sent me these images and I’ve been googly eyed over them ever since. The bright yellows and blues make such a beautiful contrast to the soft, garden feel of the whole celebration. And look at Charlotte’s gorgeous curls…dont even get me started!

Nic and I met in Rome Italy while studying abroad in college. 5 years later he proposed and we decided to get married outdoors at my high school in beautiful Ojai, California. We wanted the wedding to feel very personal and homemade and just be a fun party to celebrate with our family and friends.  I collected vintage enamel flower pins and earrings over the course of our engagement and used them to make napkin rings that doubled as party favors. To keep things rustic we used twine in lieu of ribbon on the bouquets, to hang homemade escort cards and to tie our homemade name cards to mason jar water glasses.   Nic’s dad got deputized to marry us and we found an amazing band, local food and flowers.  It was our dream wedding and we wouldn’t have changed a thing!

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
