Bohemian Farmhouse Wedding: Sarita + Jesse

bride and groom

Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse is one of those jaw-dropingly gorgeous venues that I will seriously never tire of looking at! It’s always fun to see how each couple is able to put their unique spin on it to make it their own, and Sarita + Jesse are undoubtably no exception. I am completely in love with every last sweet, boho detail – from  the ceremony streamers; to the painted antlers scattered throughout; to the pretty place settings. It’s evident that their day was a reflection of them + what they’re all about. Here’s more from Sarita about the design:

We always have had an aesthetic affinity toward the Southwest in terms of jewelry and artisanal products. Jesse grew up with his family digging at numerous archeological native american sites, and his father found out he was part Chicasaw recently, so we thought the theme tied in nicely with a heritage connection. The teepee was one of many projects we did together, painting it and creating an enjoyable environment for the younger kids to play in. Jesse airbrushed every single napkin with our signature Southwest pattern and we started including that through out the wedding, on the papel picados and wedding favors (wooden usb’s and chevron rose gold studs for the females.)

Thank you so much to Clayton Austin for the beautiful images + major congrats to Sarita + Jesse!

Can you even believe this gorgeous dress?! It was a collaboration between Sarita + Shu Hsien Ryu and Dream Creations. The lace + beading detailing is just stunning.

Sarita: There were too many: when we forgot our Game of Thrones vows that we were supposed to memorize and we broke out in laughter as we said the wrong words in union; when we were announced to our guests at reception, we gazed into each other's eyes as we danced to our song like no one was watching; when my Dad took over the dance floor and tried to do the splits to wow my lady friends.

Jesse: During the ceremony I dropped my wedding ring in golden colored grass, and was saved by the maid-of-honor mother's keen sight. I remember the look of joy in everyone's eyes, Sarita's outshining all others.

Presume that something always goes wrong and that everything will work itself out. Do delegate the work to your friends and family as you cannot do everything the day of by yourselves. With our handy and very talented friends, the wedding would not have turned out looking so amazing and running so smoothly.

Try to take in and enjoy every moment possible. The day goes by too fast. We only wished we had a time machine where we can freeze or even slow down the clock to relive what an amazing celebration it was for us to share with all our loved ones.

    I work with, a free personalized map-sharing platform that allows you to create personalized maps to specific locations.

    It would be great to map the location of the farmhouse to show other couples where to go in case they want to hold their ceremony there as well since it’s in an exclusive area.
