I have heart of the wedding story about a new couple- Kristina Heaton. Her wedding took place in her parents’ home, the every element of wedding is creative. Today I will tell you something about her wedding things. Just listen to her words:
While my husband and I got engaged it looked like lovely obvious that we would get married at my parents’ home, an avocado farm in Carpinteria, CA. It was April and we intended a fall wedding, therefore we determined to only go for it and plan it all in 6 months–I understood more time might just mean more obsessing! I also actually intended everything to have a hand-made feel and come out of the genius of our community–we are fortunately to learn so many creative, wonderful person, therefore we enlisted them all to make the wedding as homegrown as possible.
I am a wedding photographer myself, therefore photography was of great significance; Nancy was my first and only option. I like horse, so with my husband we take photoes in this land and lovely horse. She led me to Emily, my new buddy and dream dress creator. I would discovered an old lace dress at a vintage show, and she reworked it wholely, making a hand-dyed ombre slip to go underneath and putting in panels and sleeves made of tulle from my husband’s grandmother’s veil. She also dyed an old silk bedcoat I had lying around to suit the dress. The invitations were based on a watercolor I did–the persons at Aardvark letterpress worked with me to make a custom two-ink press therefore the colors might bleed like watercolors! I inquired my mother, an incredible florist, to do the flowers.
I intended the tablescapes to feel wild and blowsy, like a fairyland. For centerpieces, she gathered my husband’s family silver and planted it with succulents, after that are full of little flower arrangements, pomegranates, baby apples, and acacia branches from one of her trees. I cut napkins out of sari fabric and used painters’ dropclothes as tableclothes. For escort cards, I applied cut-up watercolors I had painted; table numbers were old house address numbers I found on Etsy.
It was an intensely emotional, magical day and Nancy’s photos capture the spirit of the thing so wonderfully. Thank you for letting me share it!
