Real Wedding: Leah + Neal’s Barn Wedding

I have such a lovely barn wedding to share with you guys today – and the bride wore green wedding shoes :) Photographed by the talented Cameron Ingalls, the wedding took place at the Santa Margarita Ranch in Central California. A bit about the day from Emily Kelly (their planner):

This was such a fun wedding to plan with Leah + Neal – they had so many fantastic, truly personal ideas, so in the end we were able to create a beautiful day that was an undeniable reflection of the two of them…. Every detail had a role in that, from the beer brewed by Neal, the groom (an avid and talented homebrewer), the homemade limoncello and welcome treats by Leah, the bride (an incredible cook and food writer), the farmer’s market touches in the printed materials, seed packets for each guest and vintage seed packet table signs (also a reflection of their passion for the freshest, local foods), the desserts made from their cherished family recipes, to the collection of mismatched vintage napkins in various green patterns collected and sewn over the past year by Leah and her mother. Truly an honor to have been a part of it!

How great are these beer bottle labels?! Happily Ever Amber? I’ll take one! The other beer is ‘Til Death Do Us Porter :)  Designed by Emily Kelly.

  1. Where did you get your green shoes? My wedding is coming up in 5 weeks and I am desperately trying to find some green shoes and fell in love with yours! We are having a barn wedding too

  2. @Nicki The votive holders we found online totally last minute. I’ll dig and see if I can find the name of the company.

    @Jennifer The shoes were from Mizz Moos and were super comfy. I bought them from a small boutique in VT because they were the only store in the county that sold them in a 6. That said, the majority of their line is on, which is great site because they ship you the shoes overnight (sometimes 2-day) for free and returns are fee and easy too!

  3. Thanks for sharing with us this wonderful post. This wedding is absolutly fantastic.

  4. I love your seed packets!!! I want to do something like that for my wedding this summer, how did you make those/get those?? Thank you!
