I’m back! I have to say the month leading up to (and after) your wedding goes very quickly. But I happened to luck out in several ways with our celebration. One by having absolutely beautiful, although crisp and chilly, weather for our outdoor ceremony. And second by staying under our $ 10,000 budget.
If I had to imagine the most romantic, natural wedding possible, it’d look something like Tor and Alper’s wedding in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Also, it doesn’t hurt that their wedding was full of some of the industry’s leading pros, including Sean Flanigan, Honey of a Thousand Flowers, and Jenny Packham. Get ready to have this wedding floor you:
From the bride, Tor: We wanted the day to be a merging of our love in the company of all people we love. Since Alper and I got engaged while on a forest-y hike, we knew we wanted to get married outdoors so Nestldown became the perfect venue for us. The only other main ingredient that I really wanted were beautiful florals because I grew up on a flower farm and love flowers. Yes, flowers were more important than even my wedding dress.

I’m absolutely beside myself to share with you this styled wedding I recently cooked up. I wanted to create a shoot that focused on the more romantic side of autumn, with decayed walls and intricate textiles thrown in for some added visual interest. Jenna Trapasso Thomas of Red, White & Green Photography and McKinna Hahn of House of Ceremony jumped on board to round out my vision, and the sixth floor of Piedmont Renaissance Center was the ideal spot for a shoot. Thank you SO much for your work and participation!
My main inspiration point was textiles, with some metallic and deep amethyst thrown in. I love the pizazz that gold brings, but I wanted to focus more on gold’s warmer sister, copper, to give things a fresher look. I knew I wanted the tablescape to be full of natural elements, so I used greenery with some lesser-used flowers and petite pumpkins to create the base. Most challenging was the ceremony backdrop, which took quite a few late nights watching The Cosby Show, gluing down rolled yarn, and making dip-dyed tassels. In the end, it turned out to be my favorite piece.
Lani + Damien’s playful wedding, beautifully designed by Little Gray Station, was a fun mix of some of their favorite things! They wanted to incorporate lots of little details to really make the day their own, but mostly they wanted to throw a super fun party where everyone would have a great time. Since they live in Singapore, it was really important to them to be able to celebrate and spend quality time with their family + friends over the course of a few days, rather than just one. So when they happened upon the Moller Pavilion, tucked away in the Byron Bay region of Australia, they knew they’d found a location that was the perfect fit for what they wanted. And when it came to inspiration, Lani had the vision to transform a blank space into a vintage forest wonderland! You’ll see how she did it a bit later in the post!
Big thanks to Tim Coulson for the gorgeous photography + congratulations to Lani + Damien!
Excited to share this beautiful rustic barn wedding on a budget – the wedding of our LoveWins2013 contest winners by the talented Charlie Juliet Photography! Shannon and Jordan planned a gorgeous day by using many different budget savvy tactics! They had friends and family donate services or other wedding items as gifts, such as the cupcakes, the bride’s hair and makeup, etc. Another smart thing that Shannon did was borrow items whenever possible– they avoided extra rental fees for several items by borrowing them from their church! So smart!! And I think we can all agree, the results are gorgeous! xoxo- Jessica

This lovely couple tied the knot in a rustic outdoor ceremony at Cedar Bend. Gorgeous floral arrangements from Cedar Bend Events nicely complimented the vintage and DIY decor. Visit the full gallery here to see more of this rustic wedding at Cedar Bend, all photographed by Matthew Johnson Studios.
So I’d been meaning to sit down and actually go over the budget we’ve been working with and see how we were doing with things. Some things we don’t have to pay for until the day of the wedding while several things we know we will have to pay for a few weeks before (such as the food) and the rest has been purchased as we went along straight out of our savings account. When we decided on a guest list of 75 to keep our wedding small and still give it that intimate feeling, it helped a great deal when we started planning on our budget. In the end, we decided on a max of $ 6,000 and that if possible, we would keep it somewhere between $ 4-5,000. So how are we doing? Here’s the breakdown …

Charlene & Jason
Today’s wedding is a mix of tradition, of a beautiful garden ceremony and and an urban, warehouse reception filled with the brightest of citrus tones. It speaks to the love of design of the newlyweds and their lives as they intertwine.
The couple answered our questions together, so let’s kick it off with their version of the story. “Jason & Charlene shared the same best friend in high school, although they attended different schools. Charlene didn’t like what she heard about Jason from their best friend Joey, because he would always make fun of people and sounded like a show-off. It wasn’t until after their year 12 formal that Charlene decided Jason wasn’t as bad as she thought, so they started chatting online and getting to know each other. When uni started, they found out that they shared similar break periods so they started seeing more and more of each other. Jason chased Charlene for 6 months and was rejected a few times before perseverance paid off and they finally became boyfriend and girlfriend. The rest is history.”
