Not only is today’s wedding from Michelle Garibay Events stunning, it is incredibly sentimental! They picked their wedding day on the anniversary of Alexandra’s kidney transplant, making it an extra celebration. They had simple rustic vintage decor and breakfast for dinner, because duh! Scroll to see all the pretty captured by Allie Lindsey Photography.
Alexandra wanted a soft, whimsical yet rustic element to her wedding. The meadows at Temecula Creek Inn set the perfect tone to this romantic, intimate wedding. Alexandra and Andrew knew exactly what they wanted for their meal choice – BREAKFAST FOR DINNER! And, they did just that…hosting their guests with options of waffles, bacon, sausage, an omelet station and of course mimosas!
Alexandra’s Monique Lhuillier dress was a stunner! It was soft, pastel pink and absolutely perfect!
While planning with Alexandra and Andrew, they made it clear that they wanted to make their wedding their wedding unique and personalized to their style. Alexandra had a second shot at life and she went into her planning with an attitude of making her day exactly how they wanted it. From the fabulous pink dress to breakfast for dinner – I think they were able to accomplish just that.
The couple shared a bottle of Perrier Jouet, the same that was served at her parents wedding.

Would you stay up late the night before your wedding making your cake? Today’s bride wanted a cake hand-frosted with love and got her wish with their Florida museum wedding captured by The Ganeys. She also made her invitations and veil, making this hand crafted wedding even sweeter!
We both love art and colors, so we decided a colorful reception at an art museum in my hometown would be perfect. We wanted to be married before God in a church, and chose one that was both lovely and had an organ. (What can I say, I’m very traditional!) The colors were inspired by spring florals.
I was incredibly open to dress styles and just tried on a variety until I found one that I liked. I hand-sewed my own veil since I wanted to have a cathedral length and choose my own lace. The girls wore sage green dresses to go with the organic/floral theme.
Our ceremony was our favorite part. My German family surprised us with a song in German to the tune of Danny Boy; I don’t think there was a dry eye. We also washed each others feet as a symbol of our servant-love for each other.
If I could have spent my entire wedding budget on flowers, I would have! I requested lots of pinks, whites, and greens with an organic garden feel. 2Birds did a phenomenal job. The centerpieces were all in old/recycled silver containers so that guests could enjoy them throughout the week. I made the cake, my veil, the invitations, and the bridesmaid’s robes. Those were definitely a labor of love, but made for a great, personalized gift.
I was stubborn and refused to let anyone else make our wedding cake but me. Of course, at 11pm the night before our wedding (and after showering from the beach) I was frosting a cake made with love. I’d stop to practice a little foxtrot with my dad, and then get back at it. Although it didn’t look spectacular(hey, nothing a few flowers can’t fix), it was the most delicious lemon/raspberry cake I’ve ever had (if I do say so myself).

With a 1700’s barn as a venue, you know there is bound to be some vintage goodness! Elizabeth M Photography captured this romantic farm wedding inspiration that you are bound to love! How gorgeous is the reception table with the fabulous scrollwork china?
This shoot was inspired by the venue – the 1700s stone barn is so iconic. We wanted to turn the “barn wedding” into something romantic and super chic. The florals incoorperated soft lavenders, blush, creme and sage. Furthermore, Kate at Love and Luster included scent memory into photography. She laced all the bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces with lavender and rosemary – so each time the couple smells those scents they is reminded of their wedding day. The tablescape was a king’s table – bare – and decorated with cascading flowers. The table settings were all mismatched in an elegant way and accented with beautiful blush glasses.
