Real Wedding: Darren + Kayli’s Vintage Rustic Wedding

I really love the style of today’s real wedding – a vintage, rustic vibe – my favorite! This wedding was at the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center in Huntington Beach, CA. Jesi Haack was the talent behind the design (including the florals – with my new fav billy buttons!) and coordination of the day. I love the classic gray suits for the guys, along with gray vans and colored socks. Kayli went with a handmade string of pearls made by her mom, and a vintage fabric flower for her hair with patent leather yellow heels to complete her look. Jesi added some of Kayli’s grandmother’s vintage buttons from her collection to the corsages and boutonnieres to bring in the vintage, personal touch. This wedding was photographed by the talented Aaron Shintaku with help from the equally talented Amy Hinden since Aaron was also a groomsman.

One of my other favorite things about this wedding is the amazing dessert bar created by Melody Brandon of Sweet & Saucy Shop. The intricate dessert bar showcased homemade cookies by the mother of the bride and fudge by the grandmother of the groom – and the cake is so so beautiful!! So many personal treasures were woven throughout the design of this event. The shredded vintage sheet backdrop with scrapbook page flags that hung behind the dessert display is so lovely! Oh, and there was a horse for some photos – love!
