    Colorful Fiesta Wedding

    Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography

    Sometimes a wedding submission comes in that makes me so excited to do all the work it takes to feature a real wedding (and it is a lot of work for this one woman show of a blog called Oh Lovely Day). This is one of those weddings. From the amazing paper floral ceremony arch (DIY at it’s finest) to all of the fun little details and the personal story behind them, I am in love with today’s wedding. I know you’ll love it as much as I do.Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light PhotographyColorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light PhotographyColorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography Colorful Fiesta Wedding | Lady of Light Photography

    I met Manda Wong, a talented artist, through one of my bridesmaids. I reached out to her about my vision for papel picado wedding invitations she told me that she did not have experience making invitations like that but that she was willing to give it a try. She was there by my side with every crazy idea I had and we both would be sending numerous messages brainstorming throughout the months trying to get our invitations, RSVP cards, envelopes, seating chart, and thank you cards completed. She also made the amazing Tapatio bottles that we gave to our wedding guests as favors. I couldn’t have done it without her help!

    How stunning is the detail on that cake!?

    Can you believe that backdrop and the flower arch for the ceremony were DIY by the bride!? They took her two months to create, and I think they were worth every second. She talks more about it below!

    Some details on creating and sourcing the materials for their dream Mexican wedding (including that awesome ceremony arch and backdrop) from the bride:

    It started with my husband suggesting we have a Mexican wedding so we could eat Mexican food… (brilliant!) During the early planning we took a trip to Zacatecas, Mexico to a little town called Cruz Verde where my parents are from. While we were in Mexico we bought most of our wedding decorations. We went to Guadalajara Jalisco to a Mercado called San Juan de Dios where we negotiated prices and bought so many decorations we couldn’t take it in one trip. It’s where we bought the Charro hats, luchadores masks, and most of the props. Before we left we visited a woman who works from home making personalized table napkins, pillowcases and other household items. We sat with her and told her that for our wedding we wanted personalized table napkins for all our guests and we wanted our names, wedding date and other decorations engraved in the napkins. At that time, we knew we wanted the royal blue and persimmon colors for our wedding so within 45 minutes with her old Singer sewing machine and a needle she engraved an example for us. We loved it and placed an order right there! After we left, my mom and I were on the phone every other day and as soon I would get more ideas I would ask her to purchase the items. One day, I saw a picture of a Mexican wedding on Pinterest and they had colorful papel picado as one of their decorations, I called my mom and told her about it and she loved the idea she immediately got in contact with several vendors until she found the right one. I told her we wanted our names and wedding date engraved in the papel picado and we were able to get exactly what we wanted. It took a month to complete because it’s a time consuming process involving chiseling delicate tissue paper with a small hammer and chisel. Houston (my husband) and I wanted to have tequila as toasts during speeches but due to restrictions at the venue we were unable to, so we started doing research on wine that tasted like tequila. Houston found “Agave Wine” as a replacement; it is made out of the agave plant giving it the tequila taste. We found an online vendor who carried this agave wine and it came to him directly from Mexico.

    One day while I was online I found a beautiful paper flower backdrop made by a women named Tania Fischer so I called and told her about our Mexican wedding and how I was interested in ordering a backdrop from her. After she told me her pricing I was disappointed to find we couldn’t make it work with our budget. She was nice enough to tell me that she had a do it yourself step-by-step video on her website and I could possibly do it myself if I had the time. So I decided to give it a try. After watching a lot of YouTube videos I started doing several paper flowers (buying all of the paper from Michaels). The whole project took me about two months including the wedding arch. Almost every day after work I was doing 1-2 paper flowers and on the weekends that’s all I did. By the time I started the arch my mom was back from Mexico and she helped me complete it. 

    I just love how everything came together and was such a group effort. It shows in the gorgeous photos and looks like such a fun and personal celebration. Congrats to Diana & Houston! Check out the vendors below if you’re loving what you see — lots of talent for sure.

    Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal

    Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s dreamy beach vow renewal is full of beach wedding inspiration and might have you longing for a simple destination affair. This couple really wanted to celebrate their anniversary with a vow renewal on the island of Saipan, where they have lived for over a year, because they felt like they wanted to include the island and their new “family” there in their marriage. I love that idea, and the stunning images from Mylyn Wood Photography

    I love Lauren’s beach chic bridal style – her hair is perfection and the florals could not be a better match.

    Great idea for a simple beach wedding: lay down wooden pallets and cover with colorful blankets and linens for guests to sit on. Bonus points for guests who dress this colorfully festive!Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day Dreamy Beach Vow Renewal in Saipan | Mylyn Wood Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    Here’s more from the couple:

    This little island has special significance to us. We haven’t lived here long (only a year) but our lives have changed so much since coming here. We’ve found some of the greatest people to share our lives with and as a couple we have grown more than we ever had before. With our anniversary nearing we entertained the idea of renewing our vows. At first it was just an idea we threw around but the more we thought about it the more important it became to us. We really wanted the island itself to be well represented since it was here that our marriage has been strengthened and here that we met our new “family.” The flametrees have very great meaning on the island and they represent deep love and passion. Since they were already in season we decided it would be the perfect way to incorporate this wonderful new home of ours. It was important to us that only those who touched our lives significantly would be there so it was very casual and very small. We lined our favorite beach with family quilts and blankets, made an aisle runner from coral pieces and adorned the natural cave with the firey red blooms from the flametrees. It was here that we spoke boldly, honestly and humbly about our lives, our love and our gratitude for each other. A special opening was given by my best friend and love song was played to us on the ukulele. To us, this became more significant than our original wedding and it meant everything to us that we were able to do it in such an authentic way in front of those dearest to us. Afterwards we shared toasts with champagne, and shared stories and s’mores as we watched the most beautiful pink sunset fall upon the water. We ate the most delicious cake from our favorite local bakery that was adorned with local seaglass from our favorite beaches.

    Many congrats and happy wishes to Lauren & Matt!

    New England Autumn Wedding

    New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com

    Fall is normally my favorite season of the year, and now that I live in Southern California I yearn for it even more. But with this current heatwave we’re suffering through, today’s wedding has me ready for cooler temps, pumpkin spice everything, and cozying up with my sweetheart. And man, oh man, am I dying to see some colorful fall foliage! Today’s charming New England wedding from Love & Perry will have you feelin’ fall too.

    New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com New England Fall Wedding | Love & Perry on ohlovelyday.com

    Our inspiration for our wedding day was a rustic vintage affair, as if you came home and pulled together a beautiful wedding with what you had in your garage, your garden, and knickknacks just lying around the house. We wanted it to reflect the New England charm of the Red Barn and feel like us, laid-back, eclectic, and fun.

    One of the most memorable moments for us was our personalized ceremony. Our officiant had both of us share our story with him, and only revealed what the other had said while we were standing at the oak tree saying our vows. Our entire ceremony was the story of us.

    More details and some advice from the bride:

    Do you. Don’t make it about anyone else. Only the two of you know what you really want, and that’s all that matters. Everything is in the details. It’s what makes your wedding YOU. For us, we did a lot of the little things ourselves and that made it feel even more like us. One of our favorite details was our card table lined with old photographs of our loved ones on their wedding day, and pictures of us throughout our relationship. We wanted our guests to get a sense of who we really are as a couple. The personalized DIY details and the ceremony that shared the story of us provided each and every guest with an intimate glimpse into how we met, fell in love, and ended up there at that oak tree saying “I Do.” 

    Love that advice! “Do you.” Congrats to Meghan & Ryan! And thanks to Love & Perry for sending these stunning photographs my way. Who’s having a fall wedding and just got super excited!?

    Laid Back Fiesta Wedding

    Laid Back Fiesta Wedding | Gather Events, Molly & Co Photography, Inessa Nichols, Whoa Nelly, Casa Shelter Half | ohlovelyday.com

    Today’s laid back So Cal wedding was an intimate family affair. It’s a beautiful example of how you can make your wedding represent who you are and have a small, non-traditional wedding that is both elegant and fun. Add the GATHER Events gals and their talented handiwork and breathtaking florals from Inessa Nichols and you’ve got a wedding that has both sweetness and style for days. And the food has me dying for some Whoa Nelly catering of my own!

    Don’t you love the vibrant purple shades of the florals!? GATHER Events’ in-house floral expert, Inessa Nichols, chose punchy purples, pinks and whites in vintage brass and silver vessels to add an eclectic feel and used Jennelle’s favorite flower, tulips, for her the bouquets.

    Jennelle’s children, Emi and Ethan served as maid of honor and best man. A multi-colored sand ceremony symbolized Dwalu, Jennelle and the children coming together as one family. They each took a color and blended the sand together into one larger vessel. This important moment was a beautiful highlight of the ceremony.

    Laid back vibe + elegant presentation + vibrant florals = the perfect modern and fun fiesta! And I love all of those fun details from GATHER Events. Here is more from the GATHER girls about the day:

    Jennelle and Dwalu came to us with the task of finding the perfect location for their intimate wedding. They felt drawn to the idea of a laid-back Mexican-style fiesta. We incorporated Mexican design elements to complement the wedding’s south of the border menu. White papel picado dressed up the deck’s canopy; handmade paper flags and tassels garnished the guests’ margaritas and paper tassels decorated the dinner buffet. Starting with Jennelle’s favorite color purple, we developed a fresh, lively color palette to represent the couple’s joy for life and their love for one another.  Vibrant purple and turquoise pillows, throws and runners livened up the dark outdoor space.

    The couple craved a cozy, laid-back vibe that represented them as people and that was the opposite of a traditional “wedding” venue. Casa Shelter Half, a private residence in the heart of Venice, had just what they were looking for and more. When they laid their eyes on the balcony that overlooks Abbot Kinney Blvd., just steps away from the restaurant where they had their first date, they knew they had found their perfect location. Two years to the day of that first date just down the street, they said their I Dos in front of an intimate gathering of thirty of their family and closest friends. The evening could not have been more perfect! 

    Congrats to this sweet couple on their marriage and joining their family! And if you’re planning a So Cal wedding or event, take note of the vendors — they clearly did a fabulous job.

    Rustic Sundance Wedding

    Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    The second this submission landed in my inbox, I fell in love with both the wedding and with Sundance (and I’ve never been!) I swear I can feel the warm sun and the crisp fresh air and smell the pine through the gorgeous images. It seems like the perfect place for a rustic wedding. Even better, it is a place the couple loved and where they got engaged. The adorable pup is just the icing on the wedding cake.

    The bride says the first look was one of her favorite parts of the day and that the couple loved having those first moments just between the two of them. It also allowed for more time to spend with their family and friends later.

    I’m sort of obsessed with these stunning yellow bridesmaid dresses. They are so modern and chic and contrast really well with the rustic setting and decor. Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day Rustic Sundance Wedding | Logan Walker Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    The color palette and wedding design were inspired by Sundance itself. The couple tried to bring the outdoors in for their reception, incorporating the natural color palette of the setting and adding other rustic elements and personal details.

    Don’t you love all of the rustic details and the pops of color? The yellow and lavender, along with all the natural green is just a gorgeous combination. And the couple’s pup Trooper stole the show — such a cutie. Local to Sundance or thinking of having your own destination wedding there? Be sure to check out all of the vendors below.
