Paso Robles Farm Wedding: Lawren + Jesse

Today’s gorgeous wedding is from the Fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings available today! These two creative (Lawren is a fashion stylist + Jesse is a drummer) cuties were married in Paso Robles, at Willow Creek Farm — which is next door to the Jesse’s childhood home. Lawren + Jesse created a beautiful southern picnic wedding with lots of vintage elements. They really wanted their guests to be relaxed and comfortable – and above all, to have a blast. My kind of wedding. :) Congrats to Lawren + Jesse and thanks so much to Shira at Martha Stewart Weddings for letting me share a peak into their wedding today!


I’m totally obsessed with the bridesmaid dresses – and I wouldn’t expect anything less from a stylist as the bride! Did I mention she works on Mad Men too?! The dresses are all vintage and Lawren is wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown.

Jesse’s bandmate Will Etling designed the folk-art-inspired paper details. Just love how the invitation really set the tone for the day.

Yep, Lawren is not only Christina Hendricks stylist, but also good friends with her. Love her picnicky attire for the day – and mint juleps for the cocktails!

How sweet is the heart-shaped dinner bell?! They enjoyed home-style foods for dinner, including fried pickles, mini root-beer floats, and bite-size chicken and waffles.

Fresh pies were displayed in vintage refrigerators (love that idea!) and Lawren collected the little birds for her cake.

Such a perfect rustic wedding to head into the holiday weekend! You can see more from the day online here and in the Fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings on newsstands today! Perfect for some pooltime reading this weekend. :)
