As soon as photographer Joshua Caine sent over a peek at this whimsical wedding last week, I just couldn’t wait to share it with you guys. Dominique + Taylor were married in Parkfield, California and the whole day was inspired by one of their favorite songs Big Rock Candy Mountain. It was such a whimsical, thoughtfully quirky and wildly fun wedding. Thanks to Dominique + Taylor for providing us some insight into your super fun wedding.
Dominique walked down the isle to a Ava Marie, recorded by her late grandfather. How beautiful!
Our cake was made by my mom. It was made from an amazing, very exclusive recipe called, “funfetti” (yes, the boxed funfetti that has the little candies in it. It’s my favorite!) She decorated it with lace and our monogram. It was only a little cake for display so we had something to cut. Taylor’s mom made tiny felt bride and groom owls wearing a birdcage veil and suspenders. They sat on the top of the cake. Our guests were served a yummy peanut butter cheesecake that was provided by the Parkfield Cafe.
I think we both enjoyed the dance party that went well into the wee hours of the morning. We had so much fun dancing and enjoying a beautiful night with all of our favorite people to celebrate us as husband and wife. But the whole day was memorable so it's really hard to pick just one!
What was your favorite detail of the wedding? ALL of the little details! The 52 chevy used as a guest book … all of the unique trinkets collected for centerpieces … the unique setting of Parkfield … our HUGE toasting glasses .. .the photobooth … karaoke the list goes on. It would be impossible for us to pick just one detail because all of the time and thought we put in to EVERY detail is what made our day so special and unique.
And a few other fun things to note: Each guest had a mason jar with chalk board painted on it for them to write their name on. In the champagne glasses they put colored rock candy at the bottom so when the champagne hit it would turn different colors. They had a large popcorn maker with many toppings for guest to have as the evening went on. And the guests were all invited to camp over for the night! Such a fun fun wedding!
