Rustic California wedding: Hannah + Mike

California wedding: Hannah + Mike

Heartwarming fact behind this wedding: Hannah + Mike actually got married a few weeks before their official date because Mike was shipping off to Afganistan shortly after the wedding and they wanted to make sure they had a few solid weeks of living together as husband and wife. That being said, you can imagine their day was filled with family, friends.. and lots of DIY projects. The entire wedding felt like a family affair – the coordinator was a dear friend, the photographer, Paige Lowe has been a family friend since she was a baby. So much love!
