Real Wedding: Heather + Grayson’s Fun Wedding

When photographer Dana Grant sent me these photos and said they thought this wedding was just my style, I couldn’t wait to see them – and they were totally right! I love this wedding! So many fun details – and really beautiful photos! Heather is also a photographer, so she knew exactly what she wanted from her wedding. Heather + Grayson choose Crestmore Manor in Riverside CA which has beautiful Southern grounds. Heather either handmade everything or put it together somehow. From each centerpiece to the place settings. Their theme was birds, feathers, orange, teal, yellow, apple green.

I love these pin wheels! I was just planning to do a post on how cute I thought it would be to include pin wheels and then I see these – so fun!

Heather made the bouquets. Grayson’s boutonniere is from Etsy.

Heather handmade the teal sashes for the dresses. The bridesmaid dresses are from Urban Outfitters. The maid of honor and best man wore teal instead of yellow.

I love the different colored ties and no jackets – and the groom in a vest! Oh, and how cute are the shoes the girls are wearing?

How cute are their dogs!?

Each centerpiece was a little different. The plates at the head table were all from Heather’s vintage collection.

  3. Great find on this one! The bride and groom are gorgeous and I love all the whimsical yet real details. Gotta agree about the bm dresses, though – you gotta look out for your girls! That’s a tough dress to pull off.

  4. Hot damn those shoes are awesome.

  5. What a cute looking couple!

  6. Do you happen to know where the groom’s outfit is from? Awesome wedding!

  8. sorry about my dresses… i guess :/ they liked them… and Grayson’s outfit was from Express Men, on sale!

  9. I LOVE those colors! I am thinking of changing from green to teal and yellow now. :)

  10. Heather – I love the bridesmaids dresses!! A cute dress with pockets that I would totally wear again?? Sign me up!! I think your girls look fantastic – and I’m sure they loved them! As long as you know what your girls can pull off – and yours totally did – I think that’s all that matters.

  16. They are so cute. The bride is absolutely stunning. I love that the maid of honor has her own dress that separates her from the other bridesmaids – what a nice way to distinguish her!

  17. Oh my goodness I love this!! My themes are teal, chartreuse, peacock feathers, and black and white damask patterns!! I know it sounds like a lot, but this wedding completely reaffirmed my thought that I can do all of those themes!

    I love the hanging peacock feathers- It’s hard to tell from the photo- Where are they hanging from? And how are they situated? :)

  18. Unique color combination. I would love to do something fun like that. The Bride is especially pretty!

  19. Wow what a beautiful wedding, inspired me to look for patterned fabric for my bridesmaid sashes and her hair style is gorgeous.

  23. Beautiful bride, fun couple. Colors are great.

  24. Gorgeous! That wedding is so inspiring!

  25. Your blog is gorgeous, and I love this wedding. :) Especially the centerpieces.

  26. Wow – the bride is soo pretty, she should be a model! The colours are great!
    My wedding will be next year – I have to thank all of you, because of the great photos it`s hopefully possible to bring some of the great ideas to my wedding in Austria.

  27. To respond to Carly,
    We hung all the peacock feathers from fishing wire, just glued them on. They WERE all separated and all different lengths, but the wind made sure they clumped together, haha. They are hung from a line of twigs and wrapped around the tree with twine. It took us 3 hours to make and was REALLY hard to handle.
    i loved it though, but I wish they stayed separated like a back drop.

  28. What a cute wedding!

  29. i loveee this especially the color scheme. The tandem bike and pinwheels are awesome!!

  30. This is so inspiring, their wedding must have absolutely wonderful <3

    I'd love to know who did her hair…I'm getting married in Riverside in July and I'm not sure who to go to! I'm planning my wedding from Brooklyn so it's extra difficult :/.
