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.

Reinna’s bridal bouquet recipe: anemones, mums, and wax flowers.

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”.

While everyone else got to munch on churros and bundt cakes, their wedding cake of choice was a strawberry shortcake.
