Event planner Jacqueline + project manager Casey had a pretty clear vision for “I do”: intimate, rustic, elegant, and definitely outdoors. They landed on UC Berkley’s Redwood Grove Amphitheater + and knew it was the spot. Jacqueline tells us, The redwood trees not only provided a beautiful backdrop, but made it feel private and romantic. We had always wanted an intimate and small wedding surrounded by our closest friends and family, and the redwood grove provided just that.

Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography sharing these photos.

From the bride… The most memorable moment from our wedding was our vows. We had decided to write our own personal vows and to our surprise, they were almost identical to each other. We were not only moved by each other’s words, but had all of our family and guests too. You could really feel the love we had for one another. It’s a moment that I will play over and over in my head and treasure forever.

Jacqueline’s dad made this wood backdrop + chalkboard easels. To make sure the overall vibe was romantic and elegant, they opted for rustic elements in the ceremony + chic décor for the reception. Take a peek at Jacqueline’s Pinterest board for more inspo.

Jacqueline says, The gown is a dramatic composition of lace and a striking trumpet silhouette with slight pleating at the skirt. The fabric used was a lace appliqué and English net. The fabric was a champagne color with an ivory lace on top.

Lara says, Studio Cake designed a beige cake with a faux leather band wrapped around and small white ruffle details to which we added some fresh fruit and flowers. It was placed on a sweet white table with a Spanish medallion runner and signage from Flight Design Co. that read, “Love is Sweet”.

Late Summer mid-west wedding | Photos by Sawyer Baird | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=79569

Katie + Stephen’s wedding represented the two of them just right: an intimate woodsy space at a friend’s property to honor his outdoorsy side, and soft, artsy touches that showed off her love of beauty + simplicity. When guests entered the ceremony space, they walked into a woodland fairytale setting that was captured ever-so-romantically in film by photog Sawyer Baird.

Katie’s BHLDN dress was light and airy with soft petals, a silk chiffon shell, ostrich feather, and a tulle petticoat. These pretty dusty purple bridesmaids dresses are from Free People.

Katie says, I walked down the isle to “A Soft Place To Land” by Kathleen Edwards. My brother is a musician and recreated the chords. It was so meaningful. We danced to Ingrid Michaelson’s version of “Can’t Help Falling In Love”.

A favorite moment, from the bride: There’s nothing sweeter to remember than the first moment I got to see Stephen in my wedding dress. I thought I might pass out, but the adrenaline of coming up behind him and having him turn around is something I’ll never forget.

They had 135 guests and the space gave them intimacy yet plenty of room to spread out, mingle, and lounge.

They wanted everything to feel artsy and eclectic with a feminine flare. Katie’s mom made the table linens and the ceremony benches, bags and cornhole game were also DIY.

Katie’s tips for brides planning: If you’re planning a wedding, ask for help. I think too many brides feel they have to do everything and make all the choices, but sometimes you need others to get you thinking creatively and logistically. The best thing I ever did was hiring an event designer. I enjoyed my wedding because I knew someone else was taking care of all our ideas!

Most of their budget went to three things: food, event design, and photography – food to create an experience for guests, design to bring their vision to life, and photography for memories that will last forever (Katie’s a photog herself – she knows how important that is!).

Congrats guys!
