DIY Beach Wedding | Brian + Deze

Share this project

“While Guests enjoyed panoramic views of the ocean for this Half Moon Bay, CA wedding, Deze was waiting anxiously to walk down the aisle to her groom. Everyone wondered how beautiful Deze would be but no one could have imagined how truly breathtaking she was. Her gaze met his, and smiles became infectious. Deze and Brian are the type of couple who can change your day by spending time with them. They are kind, intentional and are very much in love! Tiffany blue and hues of pink, orange and yellow pulled the day together and Deze’s vision for her day came together like a dream. Our long distance Skype dates had me dreaming of what this day would be like, and it was everything Deze described and more!

We couldn’t be more thankful for Deze and Brian! Pinterest connected two lovebirds in CA to two photographers in love in Texas and it couldn’t have been a better pairing. Their kindness, intentionality and joy were a blessing we won’t soon forget and we wish them all the happiness in the world!” – Jennefer Wilson

“This is a tough question! It’s very tough to pick out one single memory in such an amazing day as my most favorite. I do have have to say that I’m very glad that my husband and I got some time together before our wedding when we did “our first look”. Our ceremony took place on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean so it was a nice, relaxing moment to spend together before all the festivities began…


..Yes! I did several DIY pieces for our wedding. In fact, most of the reception pieces were DIY including various signs (outside reception chalk board, candy buffet, sparklers, Mr. & Mrs. sign, etc.), table decorations, sand ceremony kit, table numbers and table number key/chart). I even did the flowers for the whole reception with the help of my mom, sister and mother-in-law!


..Of course; I had all four! My blue and new items were my garter and shoes while my something borrowed was the hanger that I used to hang my dress on and that I also used for my dress pictures. My little sister had gotten the hanger for her special day so I was able to borrow it from her to do the same. My something old was a piece of lace that my mom cut from her wedding bouquet from my parent’s wedding. She gave me this on the morning of my wedding and I had it incorporated into my bouquet as well!


..Give yourself plenty of time to plan, be as creative as possible and enjoy every minute. Ultimately, no matter what you decide, your day will be perfect. You will most likely stress over little things but in the long run, it will all be worth it!” – Deze, the bride
