Sara & Dustin ♥ Santa Cruz, USA
Photography: onelove photography
Mountain weddings always seem to be so tranquil and idyllic, and Sara and Dustin’s ceremony certainly lived up to this with a sweet and private setting tucked away within the quiet hillside of Boulder Creek in California.
Once it was declared that Sara and Dustin had ‘nailed it’ – literally, check out their cool announcement board! – the party really got started!
This cool couple put their heart and soul into their DIY day and it really paid off; there are so many steal-worthy ideas! Rustic signs, a milk and cookies station, personalized blackboard glasses for all of the guests, a homemade photobooth, wedding flowers put together from the local farmers market and more.
You’ll be so impressed by the festival feeling that this darling duo managed to create for their celebration and the stunning, serene Santa Cruz mountains standing silently in the background simply add to the already magical atmosphere.
Sara the bride says:
“We had a total do-it-yourself wedding. I wanted everything to just flow from beginning to end. My friends had a big hand in helping us execute everything. We wanted a fun, magical, unique wedding… and I feel like we succeeded. Our friends and family are the most important thing… so we wanted to keep it less structured that way we could have more time to mingle, dance and drink.”
