Rustic Bohemian California Wedding: Kimberly + Zack

Leo Carrillo Ranch wedding

Did you catch our romantic Valentine’s date night feature from this morning? We’re still in a rather dreamy mood so we’re keeping the sweetness going strong with a gorgeous rustic bohemian wedding that we know you’re gonna love! Kimberly + Zack took a laid-back approach to planning a day filled with color, fun, and beautiful details. Since Kimberly owns her own event design firm, it was a given that they’d DIY as much as they could + infuse the already beautiful setting with plenty of personalty.

Kimberly shares, When it came time to plan my own wedding I decided to take an ‘anything goes’ approach. Although there was no set color scheme I had a vision in mind of a bohemian wonderland where guests were completely surrounded by flowers and pops of color. I relied heavily on trusting my instincts when it came to the design. If a particular vase, flower or texture caught my eye it found a place in the wedding. I also have an obsession with fringe, macramé and brass, therefore these were present throughout the event as well.

Thanks so much to Love Janet Photography for the pretty photos + cheers to the newlyweds!

Kimberly says, Zack was my master builder and made all of my crazy ideas a reality, including the faux fireplace, tiled seating chart and the sweetheart table backdrop.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Goodness, I have so much more advice to give after planning my own wedding! First, don’t procrastinate and second trust your vendors. I think the best decision we had made early on is to let people have creative freedom with their trade. From our caterer to our florist, photographer, videographer, make-up artist, etc. they all worked their personal form of magic and the result was nothing short of spectacular.
