A country affair with handcrafted old Hollywood glamour
This stunning wedding at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse, a two hundred-year-old farmhouse on an ostrich farm, 9 miles up a winding hill in Los Olivos, California, features incredible paper details, a glamorous handcrafted bridal look, and a surprise performance by Alissa and Rich! Alissa and her friends created so many special handcrafted elements for the wedding that she was inspired afterwards to start her own wedding business! Read on for more about this unique bride and groom and their incredible wedding day…
In celebration of summer, we’re going to shake things up and share a real “fake” wedding this week! This photo shoot, set up by Christy Whitehead Photography in Jacksonville, Florida, captured the rustic charm of bandanas, boots and barn at a new wedding location, The Keeler Property.
Out in the pastures and down by the barn, the “Bride” and “Groom” had it all. The dress from Park Avenue Bridal, hair by Alison LeeAnn, and makeup by Ruthless Beauty. A Fantasy in Flowers designed the three different bouquets to play upon the rustic theme that were wrapped with bandanas, beads and rope.
Although this was a shoot, the Bride and Groom had a three tiered cake, designed in theme by Kakes by Katie, that provided for an all out cake trashing as a finale! Enjoy the photos and the fun…
The gorgeous hues of purple and green from this Autumn wedding sent over from Ashleigh Taylor Photography, made for a beautiful eco-chic celebration. Conservation was a very important theme for the couple, Christine and Tyler so they chose to have their wedding at the beautiful Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades, CA. Temescal park happens to be one of our favorite places in Los Angeles for hiking and enjoying nature and panoramic views of the city. It’s truly beautiful!
All the profits from Christine and Tyler’s wedding went back into funding for the park and conserving the surrounding environment. What an impressive and generous idea! We love this couple’s sustainable values, and the gorgeous wedding that reflected their unique personalities.
The different hues of purples and blues were stunning against her chic white dress.
The ceremony was intimate and naturally decorated by the beauty of the Park.
The couple used baby pictures and simple flower arrangements as their center pieces.
Growing more popular, and taller!, are the tiers of cupcakes and small deserts in place of a cake.
The country boots, the rustic charm of the ranch, and the hand made dance floor all made for the perfect DIY Wyoming wedding for Chris and Ali. Everything from the coat hangers and bags for the bridesmaids, to the invites and water bottles, was made with love for family and friends. They even cooked their own food and filled mason jars with special goodies for guests!
This homemade country wedding was sent over by friends at Sarah Christine Photography. Enjoy!
These super-charming 50th wedding anniversary party pics came to us from Lauren Rae Photography, the proud granddaughter of the happy couple! Pat and Ray’s anniversary celebration was made special by Lauren Rae and her parents , who helped plan and design it like the wedding reception that the loving couple never had. As Pat and Ray are big fans of bluegrass music and culture, a “hoe-down”-themed party was a perfect fit for them.
Fresh flowers, vintage bottles, mason jars, and mismatched china made the table decor warm, welcoming and chic. A local caterer provided the yummy BBQ dinner, and a family friend made three beautiful cakes for the desert bar. The family danced the night away to the tunes of Elvis, Johnny Cash and music from the 1950s. Pat and Ray’s celebration proved that a DIY reception built with labor of love can become a very special memory for all!
Here’s a beautiful country wedding with a Southern twist that was sent over from Cameron + Kelly Studios. Jennifer and Paul’s wedding was an infusion of Champagne, blush and ivory roses with cotton blossoms and a relaxing charm surrounded by large pine trees. Amongst the background of trees and moss at the Mormon Lake Lodge in Northern Arizona, event planner Peak Events and Kim from KD Event Designs created elegance out of the rustic nature.
The couple’s favorite detail of their wedding were the love letters used throughout the ceremony and dinner. A collection of love letters written by Matthew were printed by the bride’s father and folded into each ivory napkin. Every guest had a different letter to read and it was by far, the most unique detail to their wedding.
Enjoy the love and rustic charm!

Not only has this couple mastered the art of effortless vintage chic, but the details and photography are just amazing too! And it was all held at the Heritage Museum of Orange County, which looks like an amazing, quaint old farmhouse. So beautiful…enjoy!!
