This wedding is so meticulously styled I thought it was just that – a styled photo shoot. However, not only was this wedding beautifully done – it was almost all DIY!
Jen Ramos (the designer and blogger behind MadeByGirl – you really need to check out her work!) was behind the decisions made. Everything – from the menus to tablescapes, cakes to flowers – was conceived, executed and made by the bride, groom or someone they knew. This made an incredibly personal wedding day assembled by loved ones that was also budget friendly. By keeping the projects made by hand when possible and the guest list small (30 guests attended) the couple were able to focus on details that really mattered, and enjoying the wedding day!
Keeping with white and crisp apple green, the entire wedding has an exceedingly modern, clean look. The contrasting textures of the wheatgrass and manzanita and varied heights make for a gorgeous tablescape, don’t they?
Anyhow enough chatter – check out Mat and Jen’s winter Canyon Gate Country Club wedding, below, photographed by Yvonne Wong.
The wheatgrass was from Whole Foods, the roses from an online flower source, along with the manzanita branch centrepieces. All of it was put together by the groom, who used to work in a floral shop. Amazing!
The menus were customized from a template, and the little leaf place markers were again done by the groom and his friend.
A custom latte template? Yup, they got that covered.
My favorite was the dessert table – it was so stunning and full of little surprises and treats.
The LOVE plates (bought online) were filled with chocolate dipped strawberries!
The cake(s) were done by the groom’s mother were coconut and fondant, with the mini ones being vanilla-chocolate swirl.
What a gorgeous day full of personal touches and details! Thank and congratulations, Mat and Jen!
