These two lovebirds have a little something to do with an announcement we’re making in our next post. (They’re teaming up with photographer, Max Wanger on a rad new project). It’s exciting news that you’ll have to wait to hear because for now we want to chat all about their quirky, carefree and colorful, rustic bohemian wedding! It’s gorgeous!

Reinna’s off the shoulder ivory lace wedding dress was purchased from an Etsy shop, Luv Stoned Vintage. And her sweet floral headpiece was handmade by her sister, My Cakies.

We know what you’re thinking. We love her lipstick too! It’s Ruby Woo by MAC Cosmetics.

bohemian bridesmaids

All of her bridesmaids dresses were individually bought at thrift stores or vintage shops. They look so darling next to each other in their mismatched patterns, don’t they?

That’s quite the lineup of flower girls! Their wedding had over 300 guests in attendance so it kinda goes with the vibe. Plus, we just love all flower girl dresses from Indo Crafts & matching headpieces.

As for their wedding songs: Reinna walked down the aisle to Sigur Ros’ “Saeglopur” & their first dance was to Beach House’s “Take Care”.

  7. Wow! Loads going on but so beautifully presented. I think I’ll grab myself a cup of tea and have another good look.

  8. Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Cruz! They could not be any sweeter and their wedding is a pure reflection of them! Beautiful job to all the vendors involved in creating such a sweet day!

  9. A colorful bohemian wedding beautifully photographed by @maxwanger.. http://t.co/yASaKCym

  10. Very unique and beautiful. I love her gown and headband is so simple and lovely.

  11. Beautiful wedding. Where is the venue?

  12. WOW! That is really impressive! What a unique wedding!
    Sometimes it seems like DIY weddings cost more than regular weddings…I would love it if you could include the average cost of each wedding in each post. Just a thought!

  13. such a lovely DIY wedding! love her style and the photos by max. did I miss where this was held, didn’t see a venue listed?

  14. Oh my gosh, I love all the colour and all the handmade pieces! What a beautiful celebration :)

  15. Oh I am so sad I missed this wedding! it looks amazing! hugs!!!!

  16. Your article impressed me enough to comment which is kind of odd for me http://wegnegs.skyrock.com

  17. Love the mix of colors!! This wedding has such a fun and relaxed feel! I love the non traditional desserts, churros are one of my fav snacks!

  18. How is it that empty picture frames can always make everything look so much more magical and interesting.

  19. What an impressive array of thoughtful details and DIY touches! Wonderful job on the photography, too! Kudos to the wedding planner and coordinator; as a fellow wedding planner here in Hawaii, I understand the behind-the-scene logistics that serves as the “glue” holding together the individual pieces, and from the looks of the photos, everything turned out beautifully!

    Congratulations to the Mr. and Mrs!

  20. What is this venue? It’s beautiful

  21. To everyone that was asking about the venue, we contacted the bride and have updated the credits. Their venue (so gorgeous!) was the Parker Ranch in Trabuco Canyon.

  22. All of the bright paper decorations were gorgeous and really accentuated the desert landscape. And Beach House for a wedding song? Nice!

  23. Where did you purchase the Churros? I need to find some for a crowd. Also, where’d you get the bags?
