My Wedding Day


I promised to share pictures from my wedding day, and today is the day!
Welcome to my wedding day! Our special day took place in Mountain View, Califonia at The Rengstorff House. They were so accommodating and the coordinators were so helpful. The setting was beautiful, I could not have asked for more!





I really loved my wedding dress! It was an Oleg Cassini, and I bought it from David's Bridal. I had originally gone in with my mind set on another dress, I was all ready to pay and take it home with me. My sister saw this while we were waiting, and I HAD to try it on! It was designed strapless, so we added the bodice and sleeves on to make it modest. I was very insistent on wanting my dress to look like one piece, not a strapless dress with something attached to it. Thankfully, I found fabric that matched it perfectly!  The fabric and layers are so delicate, my seamstress said that this was one of the most difficult dress she's ever worked on.


The brand of my shoes are Anne Michelle, I just happened to see them while browsing DSW online. 
They were comfortable and I can still wear them after the wedding!




The watch I'm wearing was my "something old".
 It was my grandmother's, left with the rest of her jewelry before she passed away. 
I found it years ago and decided to put it away for my wedding day.

Dustin wore a navy blue Bar III suit from Macy's, he looked so handsome!

 

I love this picture of my mom and I while I was getting ready.


My floral designer Nicole, who was also a bridesmaid, did an AMAZING job!
My theme included shades of blush and peach, she worked so hard on making my dream come to life.


The aisles were lined with gold shepherd hooks that held pink baby's breath and garden roses.



My programs were very similar to my wedding invitations, designed by my sister Deanna. 
Aren't they beautiful?


I can't hold it together when I see my dad cry! 
This was us the entire time before the ceremony and walking down. This picture still kills me.



All of my bridesmaid's dresses were handmade, some using vintage patterns. My vision included  coordinating colors, long and flowy, and of course modest. They all looked gorgeous!


My flower girl's dress was also handmade. I researched dresses online and on Etsy, and saw one very similar to this that I loved. My sister Denice kindly offered to step in and make the dress! She did a beautiful job, and Miss Ella looked darling. And my nephew's trousers? I die! SO cute!


Our bridal party looked SO good!


My table decor included lace table runners, vintage books, and small vases that I had thrifted from Goodwill. Dustin's grandmother also gifted me with vintage teapots that we spread out over all the tables!


This was our head table, I still can't get over how pretty it was! {I love you, Nicole!}


This was a photo backdrop that my mom created, and she hand painted the floral design on the letters! They looked so so pretty, and now I'm planning to hang this somewhere in my house. :)




I spent months searching for vintage plates to glue onto stands for dessert table.
{Homemade pies and cheesecakes by my husband's grandmothers! They were a hit!}
The chalkboard signs were designed by my multitalented sister Deanna. 


Our favors were white paper bags filled with chocolate covered almonds. 
We stamped them in gold, with peonies {that were in my bouquet} and the word "love". 


If you're planning a wedding and need a game for the reception, look up The Shoe Game on Pinterest! 
It's so fun and it gave everyone a good laugh.



I could not have asked for a more beautiful day! We had so much help and received so much love. I couldn't finish this post without thanking Caitlin, our photographer, who was so great the entire day and gave us beautiful memories! 

I hope you enjoyed bits and pieces of our special day! If you want to see where I got my inspiration and ideas, head over to my wedding Pinterest board to see everything I've been pinning in the last year.
{I don't even know how people planned weddings before Pinterest!}
