Happy, happy Friday cakies! You’re gonna love this one: Photographer + design blogger Kim and her guy Seth, an engineer, opted for a glammed up natural curiosity-inspired theme for their Big Sur wedding, with feathers and antlers, glitter and gold. (As you can see on Kim’s Pinterest board, she knew just how to mesh the two.) Between all the lovely details + Evynn LeValley‘s breathtaking photography style, the whole thing was meant to be.

Their most memorable moment…

Her: Coming over the hill and seeing everyone looking back at me. I was crying before the ceremony even got started.

Him: Seeing her come over the hill.

Sometimes nature can swoop in and make your photos even more incredible. That fog!

Kim, on all her DIYs: The tissue paper tassels that we used as a photo backdrop, gold-leafed Geode bookends for table numbers, gilded feather garland on the cake table, and the crystal bottle stoppers. The ring box was a vintage find that I filled with moss and I wired succulents and Billy-button to create boutonnieres for the guys. For the girls I created custom totes with their names, had the robes embroidered with a floral monogram and made the sequined hangers. The welcome bags were created using a custom wedding map off of Etsy and tote bags. For favors we made s’mores kits.

Brittany met Ben during a cultural exchange program to Israel, where he’s from and was serving in the Air Force. They became best friends, fell in love, and after he discharged, he moved to the US so they could be together. Brittany told photographer Cacá Santoro that she really wanted to capture how much fun they have together as friends and life partners. Here’s how Cacá translated their love and friendship to photos…

Their cute proposal story… He proposed on the beach in Santa Monica a few days after he moved to the US. He told me to come with him to the sand to take pictures of us with the sun setting and set up his go pro to take pictures on a timer. Little did I know he was recording a video of the whole proposal! After I said yes, he said “lets get a drink to celebrate” so we went to a hotel on the water and all my family members were waiting for us there with champagne for a toast. Happiest day of my life!

On their photog, Cacá Santoro Photography

We fell in love with her right away and she was the first vendor we booked for our wedding! Our style is eclectic and creative, and that was what we loved about her and her photography style. She really understood what we were looking for in a wedding photographer.

Brittany says wedding planning is so fun and so much work… Trying to remember to enjoy the ride and to take advice from former brides, like “No one will remember the color of your napkins!”  Never have I spent so much time on Pinterest, pinning my dream wedding. 

Congrats, Ben and Brittany!

Sure, we loved the last bit of customizations + site designs that the folks at Riley & Grey came out with. Well, maybe it’s because we’ve seen so many gorgy watercolors + gold handwritten words on everything from wedding invites to signage, but we really have a soft spot in our hearts for their newest designs:
