Nova and Chris’s wedding is a gorgeous mix of rustic and glamorous. Their simple outdoor ceremony overlooks the peaceful California hills surrounding Julian, California. About 30 minutes inland from San Diego, this small town is filled with apple orchards and quiet spaces, perfect for a farm wedding. The handmade bunting sign on the card basket is as charming as the dessert bar. Who wouldn’t love the option of fresh apple pie, caramel apples, cake, or cookies? The couple also made wine favors for their guests. This entire celebration feels sweet and romantic, perfect for this down to earth couple. As the sun set during Nova and Chris’s reception, the quaint Farmhouse Inn became even more beautiful. This modest venue is wonderful reminder of what weddings are all about: LOVE.

This wedding has a traditional, vintage feel. The DIY details on the dessert table and the personalized reception decor, like the lace doilies on the wedding favors, are adorable. My favorite part? The framed directions that read “Here’s a twist on the guest book. We would like all of you to write a quick note for us to read on our 1st, 10th, 25th, or 50th anniversary. A thought, prayer, poem, quote, memory for us to share with you over the years, and remember this beautiful day far into our future.” That’s such a sweet way to involve your guests in your wedding day and future anniversaries! What a lovely farm wedding, through and through.

From Andrea’s hair and infectious smile to “The Homestead” reception table, to the incredible cupcake bar, this wedding oozes rustic elegance. Don’t you just want to spend the day under the giant oak tree at their ceremony?!

From  Katherine Salvatori Photography:
“I am so excited to share this beautiful backyard summer wedding. Andrea and Peter grew up in their small town together, and as family and friends reminisced at their reception, everyone knew they would end up together. This wedding was a labor of love and hard work from family and friends, as everyone pitched in to hand make all of the details for the wedding. Married under a large oak tree on their parents farm, it was a perfect setting to capture their love. I was so thrilled to be a part of this wedding, and I hope you enjoy their hard work and beautiful details as much as I do!

The wedding story from the bride:

“We spent about 3 years looking for the right location; a big rustic barn that hadn’t been renovated, refurbished, or rehabbed in any way to host weddings. Moody Mountain Farm hit all our marks. It was perfect. I’m sort of obsessed with mason jars, particularly the aqua blue ones. That is where the inspiration for the colors and decor came from. The color is amazing and mixing shades of aqua and teal with little pops of red yielded this beautiful overall aesthetic for the wedding. That, paired with the mismatched plates and glasses (also sourced second hand), repurposed burlap coffee bean sacks and zigzag strings of globe lights added just a touch of Americana to the the whole thing.

“Something else I’m totally obsessed with are shoes. The dress was actually designed around the shoes, simple and hemmed just below the knee so the shoes would be on full display. Once I found the perfect ones (aqua rhinestone, peep toe, stilettos of course) I made them even more fabulous by painting the bottoms of them. Why? Why not?

“We have the most amazing group of family and friends that helped us put everything together, it just would not have happened without all of them, because of this I literally got the wedding of my dreams. Setting up the barn the morning of the wedding with an army of friends and family, especially two of our closest friends Kate and Ryan who were up to their eyeballs in mason jars and flowers. (Their flowers and hard work were a gift for which we’ll never be able to thank them enough!) On the day of the wedding the universe rewarded us for every good deed we’ve ever done by providing the literal BEST wedding weather we could ask for! Sunny and 78 with a light breeze and no humidity (insert the sound of angels singing here). Its all a matter of Karmic balance.”

Wow, wow, wow! This wedding is so bright and energetic. Abby and Jon created the epitome of a farm wedding- rustic, simple, and full of love. I love Abby’s DIY details and appreciate how much work went into the day! Congratulations Abby and Jon!

The details, explained by photographer  Fibre di luce:

“Simone and Giulia had a low budget to work with and we feel they’ve managed it perfectly: they avoided the city and moved to country to set up the reception in a rustic venue (very very good food, a pleasant place and not too hot weather), married on a week day instead of Saturday or Sunday, had their ceremony in the same town they’ve choosen for the reception, in the lovely Palazzo Farnese of Caprarola (the same place they’ve had their portrait session, too: isn’t it awesome?). Also, they’ve choosen local vendors for flowers and cake. As a favor for their guests, they’ve choosen bio jam jars done by the restaurant. The guests also truly enjoyed their stationery, photobooth and guestbook (a simple basket filled with colorful cards).”

This Italian wedding feels timeless. I love that the traditional ceremony was followed by an informal reception, with bright orange and green details. The cake topper and personalized jam jars are phenomenal!

Congratulations to you both!
