The Boy and the Baker Tie the Knot: A look into the DIY aspects of the wedding

I can't believe it's been almost a month since we got married! Although we are still waiting for our photographer to send us the professional wedding photos, we were able to gather some pictures from our guests. Here's a sneak peak into our DIY, very much so Pinterest inspired wedding. After one year of intense planning, two very talented and crafty parents, two dedicated siblings, and two busy residents were able to put together a picture perfect wedding ceremony and reception. Rustic vintage themed, the wedding took place at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, CA. We could not have asked for a more beautiful sunny day, filled with love and happiness, and surrounded by our dearest family and friends. We can't thank our family enough for all the late nights and stressful days they put into making this day absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way.

Part 1: The ceremony

The father of the bride created an amazing rustic white paneled doorway, flanked by crates topped with succulents grown by the bride's mother herself! The beginning of the aisle was decorated with succulents. A burlap banner ran across the beginning of the aisle, saying "This is how our story begins..."

Ring bearer, rather than carrying the rings in the traditional sense of the term, carried a burlap banner made by MOB "here come's the bride" 

Flower girl and ring bearer carrying a banner made my MOB to head the recessional "...And they lived happily every after"
