While we love a light and airy design plan as much as the next girl, sometimes something a bit more dramatic can really make our heads turn. Danielle + Logan’s amazing wedding is one beautiful example of what we’re talking about! These guys took eclectic to the next level, deciding that nothing was off limits in terms of ideas. Danielle explains, Whatever popped into our minds, we said let’s throw it in and make it work. How much do you love that mindset?! Before we dive into the beautiful photos, let’s hear a bit more about their inspiration behind the day:
We are all over the place so we decided it’s ok to go against what everything says about what you should or shouldn’t do. We knew we wanted a long farm style dinner. so we had one long table with 100 guests with really really good food. We love games so we had bocce ball and badmitton and a giant Jenga set was our “guest book” that they signed the blocks instead of some book we would never look at again. We love taxidermy so we incorporated that as well.
Thanks so much to Laura Goldenberger for the beautiful photography and congrats to Danielle + Logan on such a perfect day!
Danielle carried a mega-awesome bouquet by Twig & Twine, who also crafted Logan and the groomsmen’s berry-toned bouts. The rest of the florals you’ll see throughout are a result of the handiwork of the bride + groom!
D kind of takes our breath away in her custom made by L’ezu gown + veil!
Peter Strauss Ranch in Agoura Hills, California looks like such a cool venue. The built-in arena seating is so amazingly perfect for a dramatic wedding ceremony!

If you do a lot of DIY, then plan to work a lot...but in the end it will make it that more rewarding and special.
