This pink and yellow wedding that I have for you all today from heidi-o-photo is absolutely beautiful! Pulling their inspiration from rustic and vintage styles, Heather and James’ San Diego wedding was handmade, intimate, and absolutely gorgeous! Oh and PS- you’ll be seeing lots of my favorite flower… ranunculus!! ;)

From the bride…

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

James and I planned the wedding together – I couldn’t have pulled it off without him! He found many of the vendors (including the venue, photographer, and caterer), designed invitations, and even sculpted our cake toppers!

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

The most important thing for us when deciding with whom to work for our wedding was the rapport we had with the vendors. We met with people ahead of time before choosing, either through bridal fairs or appointments, and were able to work with vendors with whom we felt we connected and were able to share and execute our vision.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

Our inspiration for our wedding theme was from the venue and our favorite things. We were married in San Diego, and wanted it to feel like it, so we chose a unique venue overlooking the ocean. From there, we decided to keep it simple with handmade details. Details were mostly inspired by hours of browsing Pinterest and wedding blogs.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Our favorite thing about the wedding was all the people who were able to celebrate with us, either in person or from afar. It was really special to have all of our closest friends and family together. The whole celebration felt really personal since we had worked on so many handmade touches.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

 Our best advice to other couples planning their wedding is to enjoy the process. If it gets to be too stressful, simplify – no one else will notice if you don’t have that extra detail. Trusting your vendors is also hugely helpful towards keeping the wedding planning manageable. Lastly, after all the hard work in the planning process, make sure that you have someone to help you execute on the day-of, whether it be a friend or day-of coordinator, so that the wedding goes off as you envisioned and you can enjoy the day!

That’s a really important thing to remember when planning your wedding… if something gets to be too much, do what Heather suggested- simplify. I think sometimes you can tend to get a little too wrapped up in how things “should” be… I know I did!

Brides, what do you think of the combination of rustic and vintage styles? Will you be doing something similar, or perhaps combining other styles? I love it- and I would love to hear what you’re planning on doing!
