Rainy French Garden Wedding: Aurélie + Antoine

rainy french wedding

When Aurélie + Antoine were planning their intimate French garden wedding, never did they envisioned a freak rainstorm crashing the party! But this fun-loving duo wasn’t about to let it ruin their good time. And despite the rain, their day was filled with emotion, energy, and lots of love! They incorporated plenty of fun details that reflected the two of them + the things they love most. Antoine wore personalized converse, the tables were named after their favorite tv shows + cartoons, and guests received homemade jam stamped with A + A’s wedding logo. And wait until you see their super sweet ceremony, replete with tons of happy tears and their colorful confetti recessional. Too much cuteness!

Thanks so much to Marion Heurteboust for sharing this charming wedding with us + big congrats to Aurélie + Antoine!

Aurélie: For me it was during the ceremony. To see our families and guests participating to this ceremony that we thoughtfully created, put so much into…. and the vows of Antoine! Full of love and tears.

Antoine: Same here! The ceremony. Creating it but also living it! A highlight of the day for sure!

It’s important to listen to yourselves when organizing your wedding day. To create a wedding to your image that truly feels like YOU. Don’t worry too much about what other people think on this or this matter but really do what pleases you.
Same for the artists involved in our wedding, the feeling was there from the beginning, we loved their work and trusted them. We don’t regret our decisions one bit! Have fun when planning your wedding and trust yourselves!

Free-Spirited California Camp Wedding: Meagan + Ryan

bride and groom

Friends, say hello to the camp wedding to end all camp weddings! Because Meagan + Ryan’s free-spirited El Capitan fête is just so good! The stuff of glamping dreams, really. Everything was a fun twist on what you’d traditionally find at a relaxed summer camp-out. Like glam gold lanterns, a collected leaf table garland + fancy moonshine in mason jars. And since Tori from Sitting in a Tree headed up the design, we’re not the least bit surprised by our excessive swooning. We’re pretty sure you’re going to love this one, too.

A few words from Meagan, We had one goal from the very beginning. To have a weekend – not 5 hours – but a weekend filled with the people we love most and we wanted to show them a heck of a time. We also wanted to end up married. El Capitan Canyon is a magical place for us to begin with. I think that was the first right move we made. Get married somewhere that has meaning for you. Everything was beyond beautiful and authentic to Ryan and myself. All of the people we involved in helping us plan and put together our big day were carefully picked and were people we would want to vacation with, BBQ with, and just people we would like to hang with.

That’s how it should be, don’t you think? We’re so glad that Jen from Birds of a Feather was there to capture it all!
