Cutest DIY Southern California backyard wedding

Jae + Nick got married in Silverado, CA - their original plan was to get married in Nick’s parents backyard but as the guest list outgrew the backyard, they knew they had to move to a bigger spot. Not too far away from Nick’s parents house was a community event space, it was perfect. Nick’s parents house was not forgotten though! It’s where all the boys got ready and where Nick & his mom shared a heartfelt first look!! Jae and her father shared a joy-filled first look as well back at the hotel where the girls were getting ready. It was precious!

They DIYed most of everything including the delicious cupcakes baked by Nick’s talented sister, and the favors homemade/handmade by Jae’s sweet mom! We ate lots of tacos, delicious cupcakes, and danced all night under the twinkle lights! It was everything.

Oh, and I got to see one of my past brides & grooms plus one of my future bride & grooms!! Nothing makes my heart fuller.
