California country wedding: Lauri + Karley

Categories   Real Weddings

california ranch wedding

Lauri + Karley’ approach – add random details that perfectly reflect what they love. Guests dined on blue enamel camping dinnerware, wildflowers, cacti and jars of candles found themselves in every open space available, a nothing-but-donuts sweets table provided the always welcomed sugar rush, and at the end of the night Lauri threw on a plaid flannel, ran through a glow stick tunnel send off and into their honeymoon ride (Dodi the 1986 Toyota Dolphin) parked out front already packed to go with bikes and canoes for their honeymoon road trip. Big thanks to Still Music Photography for sharing this one with us!

As you can see below there were total of 12 groomsmen, including the groom + 3 dapper ring bearers. Impressively, Karley’s mother and sister handmade all the guy’ ties + the little guys’ bowties!

We shared this pic on our Facebook yesterday afternoon and y’all were lovin’ it! With good reason. This is a good looking gang of gals here with the most adorable variety of bridesmaid dresses.

Lauri, her mom, Karley’s mom and the bridesmaids put all the reception and decorative flowers together the Friday before the wedding using daisies, ranunculus, feverfew, string of pearl, billy balls, peonies, million star, gerberas, anemones, freesias, lissies, roses… and lots of succulents.

Their music: Karley and the groomsmen entered to the sentimental version of Swept Away by the Avett Brothers. The girls and Lauri walked down to You’re That Way to Me by Jon Troast. They walked into the reception to Hall & Oates, You Make My Dreams Come True and had their “first bite of donut” to She’s Got the Honey by Mat Kearny. The father/daughter dance was to the country song I loved Her First. And, L + K’s first dance was the classic Heaven by Bryan Adams.

What a beautiful wedding, I love those patchwork hand made ties! Don't suppose you have the contact details of the women who made them?

Carol on Jan 4, 2014

Can I please get some additional detail on the men's ties that were made. Did someone actually buy that patchwork material or was it made? Looking for similar material for my sons upcoming wedding. Thanks Carol

Carol on Jan 4, 2014

Can I get some additional information on the mens ties. Was that material bought or did someone make it? Is there a website where i can get more information?

Ina on Jan 7, 2014

Hi I would like to know what kind of fabric you made the ties from. My daughter is getting married this Aug and i would like to make the ties different colours but with the quilt look. Is this the style of fabric or is it a lot of pieces put together thanks Ina

Mallory on Nov 24, 2014

Hello! I, like many others, am very interested in both the mens suits and the ties. Is the creator of the tie interested in making more for a wedding? This is exactly what my fiance is looking for in a tie. Please let me know! Thank you!

Megan on Feb 17, 2015

I have an upcoming wedding this September and my fiancé LOVES the grooms suit...do you know where they came from and the name of the color?
