{Rustic Beach Wedding}

 

See the Full Feature on Wedding Chicks!

As the weather warms up, a beach wedding sounds ideal. Picture the rolling cliffs and the crystal blue ocean as the backdrop to your ceremony, we can’t think of a prettier setting. Jacquie and Greg could not agree more. They chose a San Clemente cliff side camp spot for their ceremony and headed over to theHistoric Cottage San Clemente for their ceremony.

Most all the details were crafted by Jacquie. Umbrellas & fans for the ceremony, mason jars for the guests’ cocktails, succulent filled window panes, burlap banners, wine barrels as cocktail tables and wooden signs directing guests to each location. She did it all with a little help from event plannerKimberly Conners. You can see all the pretty details up close in the full gallery. Photographed byMatthew Morgan Photography.

First off how incredibly fabulous are those Christian Louboutin shoes?

Yes, they are quite unique along with the rest of this DIY wedding that My Bride Story shared with us. This is one of those weddings where it actually rained, and a few changes were made, but overall everything turned out to be perfect. Filled with the most exquisite DIY details. That were all done by the bride. This is sure to be one of those weddings you will look back on for a few ideas.

{Their Love Story}

Superbowl Sunday was beyond super for Brooke and Matthew when they met that day at a party in a restaurant. The pair spent two years traveling between San Diego and Riverside to keep up their winning relationship. A morning trip to Balboa Island became a photo opportunity for Brooke and Matthew when the attractive couple was approached to have their pictures taken on a sailing company’s boat for publicity for the business. A few rough waves brought Matthew to his knee…to ask for Brooke’s hand in marriage. Brooke had no idea until that moment that he had planned it all along!

{Details of Distinction}

The rustic garden setting of the bride’s family home emphasized the vintage elements found in old frames, a wrought iron birdcage and unique floral vessels.
