Real Weddings: Olivia & Neil

No detail was missed in Olivia and Neil's perfectly planned vintage style wedding set in old San Juan Capistrano, California. Olivia put a lot of effort into achieving her dream wedding and seemed to have a lot of fun doing it!

The bride's favorite moment of their wedding day was walking down the aisle with her wonderful dad and turning the aisle corner to see her future husband with the look on his face of true happiness and love.  She also enjoyed walking into the reception garden before guests arrived and seeing her vision and hard work come to fruition. With the help of friends and family, she tirelessly made many DIY projects including lavender satchel favors, table backdrop and lace overlays, vintage key place cards and centerpieces, and ceremony programs.

The bridesmaids wore mixed Alfred Sung dress in Pearl Pink dupioni and chose their own shoes to complete the outfit.

Olivia also wanted to encourage future brides in what is often a very challenging process of wedding planning:

"Stay true to yourself and make sure that the dreams you have for your wedding do come true on that day because anything is possible and you just have to follow through with your ideas. Use your friends and family to your advantage. They are there to help you and it never hurts to ask! Most importantly, enjoy the entire process. Don’t get stressed out…and if you start to, just remember that this is you and your husband’s day and it will end up being the most memorable, special, romantic day of your life. "

Thank you for sharing your experience Olivia. We hope that you and Neil enjoy a marriage full of precious moments!
