Do you remember Amanda and Will from that magical engagement session we featured a while back with the sprinkler? Well….here’s their equally stunning wedding! (the first half anyway…come back for part II next!)
Will and I met studying abroad on a ship that sailed around the world. Four years later we found ourselves planning a backyard wedding. I always knew I wanted to get married at home with a wreath of flowers in my hair-just like my mom did.
Will and I wanted to create a wedding with an old California feel paying homage to warm family traditions and our California roots. We were blessed to have many helping hands, whether it was unstitching used grain sacks from France or in the garden picking fresh lavender for the invitations or burning our fingers while melting hot wax for the menus, our friends and family did everything they could to play a role in the celebration of the joining of us.

While we're always fans of weddings filled with beautiful, unique ideas so that we can show them to you, we know that not every couple is concerned about the small touches or has the budget to be able to do everything they wish they could. On this rainy wedding day in Oregon, the aesthetic focus was on the couple's amazing style, a beautiful stationery suite, and a dainty bridal bouquet -- and it's perfectly fine to leave it at that.
