Kersten & Christian ♥ California, USA
Photographer: onelove photography
Kersten and Christian tied the knot in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley in California and successfully added loads of local flavour to their romantic rustic wedding.
With delightful DIY details done right, the result was a unique, highly personalised and handmade wedding celebration – there’s even a pretty little piglet named Hamilton at the party!
“We wanted to highlight the best of California, so most everything was local, seasonal, homegrown, and community-driven. A friend made our invitations using photos Christian took of Carmel Valley (reproduced in the program we made); Christian brewed all the beer; a groomsman with a knack for mixology created a signature cocktail; my DJ brother got everyone dancing; a family friend made the delicious lemon cake; and my super-artsy sister Katherine did all the signage, escort cards, and table signs depicting things that are meaningful to us-a cypress tree, Half Dome, a pig. We just wanted the wedding to reflect our love and friendship, and the love we have for our families and friends. And we wanted it to be an awesome party.”
