DIY California Ranch Wedding

Many brides are happy to dish out the wedding duties to friends, family, and professionals. In fact, the advice we hear most often from real brides? “Ask for help!” However, there are those special few with the stamina and creative energy to go full-on DIY…though we have a feeling asking for help is still the common theme! Stephanie and Daniel love a good DIY project and viewed their wedding day as an opportunity to work together to build a day that was truly them. This included all the wedding stationery, signage, calligraphy, the ceremony backdrop, and a whole lot more! And to bring it all together, Wink! Weddings was on hand filling in the ever-important details.

Aside from their hands-on mentality, S+D focused on creating a relaxing atmosphere for guests. Stephanie tells us: We are both pretty simple and easygoing people that love hanging out with friends and family. We wanted our wedding to be fun and outdoors and Reinstein Ranch truly made our wedding special! All of our family and friends stayed on the ranch (some even camped!) the entire weekend, which really allowed us relax and stay present during all the festivities.

Onelove photography was on site, snapping away from “get ready” to “dance party”! Let’s have a look:

Turns out Stephanie is quite the hand-letterer! She designed the invitation suite, menus, programs, and save-the-dates!

Pronovias Wedding Dress

She looked just beautiful in a Pronovias gown and veil from Haute Bride!

blush and hot pink bouquet

Notice how her bouquet from Freckled Floral matches the florals on the invitation?! So cool!

Daniel looked handsome in a bluish grey suite from Express. We’re seeing more and more grooms go for something blue and we love it!
