bride-groom
May 02, 2018

“Melissa and Brett were married at the Flower Farm Inn in Loomis, California and it was nothing short of romantic and charming. Every part of their wedding was so delicate and lovely, it is perfectly described as Pretty in Pink. It had a modern, classic, elegant feel. Just by looking at the wedding you would think they spent much more than they did but Melissa had a ton of DIY details throughout the entire wedding. We were blown away by how stylish and affordable their decor was! We know that a lot of Brides would be inspired to see how beautiful their wedding was without breaking the bank, heck we were inspired! Melissa enjoyed planning every detail of the day and it showed. No detail was left out and the whole day was whimsical and stunning. In every detail and in every photo you can see the love between these two and the gorgeous elegant style they both posses. From the First Look to the last dance, the day was magical!” –Awe Captures Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

My favorite memory was definitely the first look. I was so nervous up until that point but seeing him took all of my nerves away. It was such a special time for just the two of us {and our amazing photographers, of course} to spend together before the ceremony.

What did you DIY for your wedding?

Our venue only provided table and chairs so it was up to us to figure out the rest. In a sense, we DIY-ed all of the venue hoping everything would come together in the end. I made our dinner menus by downloading a calligraphy font and printing them on a wooden looking paper. We also made all of the props to ask our bridal party to be in the wedding. I made wine labels for the bridesmaids and cigar holders for the groomsmen. We also made groomsmen boxes for the day of that had their tie, socks, a flask, etc. I made shirts for the flower girls and ring bearers to wear the day of the wedding, as well. I also made the flower girl boxes. I could not find anything that I liked that matched with our theme, so I took some of the leftover wooden boxes we had for our centerpieces and my husband drilled holes on the side so I could attach ribbon for the girls to hold. One of my husband’s friends also made us a gorgeous wooden pallet bar and my Maid-of-Honor’s husband made us our wooden wedding signs that we used for the welcome sign, guest book, seating chart and bar. After the signs were stained, our calligrapher did the the writing.

Did you have a something old, new, borrowed or blue?

I don’t think I had anything old, but I had many things that were new. My something blue was actually the tag on my dress. The collection of the dress was Blue by Enzoani and the stitching of the word blue was in turquoise. Lastly, my something borrowed was my veil, it was my Maid-of-Honor’s that she wore at her wedding.

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

My best advice would be to not stress over the little things. This is an experience that you do once so cherish every moment and enjoy doing it with your partner. At the end of the day, no one is going to care about the small details that sometimes we get so caught up in, so just take it step by step and it will all turn out to be perfect! -Melissa, the Bride
