We’re always amazed to hear when couples plan their weddings long distance, in a short amount of time, and with so many other things going on. Such was the case with Yvonne + Ruda. Their engagement was just five months long and for the first three of those months, Yvonne was in her final semester of nursing school finishing exit exams. All while trying to plan a California wedding from Virginia. But she looked at the bright side of things – when else do you have a reason to get hair & makeup trials, cake tastings, and bachelorette parties? And thanks to such great vendors, their elegant but still California laid back wedding came to be.
Um, how adorable is this photo?!
