Whimsical California Ranch wedding: Dorien + Kenny

Categories   Real Weddings

Love the bright quirky style of Dorien and Kenny’s California wedding. They’re both actors and comedians living in LA who met in an improv class at Groundlings Theater in 2005. In planning their wedding they wanted to make sure that their celebration reflected their humor and style, and that the day was infused with joy and a profound sense of play. Right on, guys. Right on. The colors turned out amazing!

A friend made their invites…

Bridesmaids chose their own dress. The only stipulation being that it was bright and they felt beautiful.

Dorien made her bouquet and all the bouts from her grandma’s button collection. So cute!

Congrats you two! Thanks so much for sharing your perfect colors and pretty whimsy with us.

Drooling over all of this! Info on the friend who made the invites please?? :) I'm in love with them!

Dorien on Jul 6, 2010

I'm so glad that you all liked our wedding. It came from a lot of really talented friends and family all working together. Oh and the invitations were actually made and designed by Kenny's brother in law's company Print Management Associates in Cerrito's, CA http://www.printmgt.com/.

Wow! I really like the realness of this wedding, the festive colors against the vintage look of the bride's dress provides a great & interesting contradiction in style, very unique.

Penny Davies on Jul 6, 2010

Dorien created her own very special wedding. We, her family, were stunned at the originality and total beauty of that special day. I wish that the hand painted birdhouse center pieces were also pictured. The Greek appetizers make by her cousin Liam and his future bride were spectacular. Also, the Condor's nest had newborn baby goats. This was a wedding we will all forever remember. Dorien's Mom and Dad
