Today’s couple Haley and John had a sweet, laidback wedding in San Clemente, California. They wanted to show their many out-of-town guests the beauty of California beaches and they wanted their wedding day to be easy and fun. They kept the wedding intimate and simple with DIY decor, a small guest list, and recruited the help of friends and family to make the day extra special. Their wedding was presided by the father of John’s childhood best friend who had passed away. He had never officiated a wedding before, but it was one of the most heartfelt, genuine, and beautiful ceremonies. Their favorite band, The Black Keys, was very heavily played throughout the reception and was used for both their first and last dance song. The bride handmade the programs and found the boutonnieres on etsy. We also love to see some of our favorite vendors as part of their wedding, including Krista Jon Floral | Botanical | Stylist (who did the amazing floral for our booth at Soolip) and Found Vintage Rentals who’ve graced many many pages of our magazine!
