Balloons, succulents, and a beautiful day—what more could you ask for! Andrea and Eric had such a gorgeous wedding—there are so many cute props and details around every corner! Here is Andrea’s description of their wedding: The weather was perfect the day of our wedding! Not too hot and just enough clouds in the sky to make our pictures look great. I was so excited when I got to the venue, my father in law handmade our backdrop and it came together just like I had envisioned it. The barn was beautifully decorated and the large paper lanterns that really gave it a romantic feel. One of my favorite things was the mini dessert bar! We received so many compliments from our guests. Our ceremony ran so smooth and we both started to cry as I walked down the aisle. We didn’t have a huge budget for our wedding but I really think we spent money in all the right places and ended up with a wedding that was just what WE wanted. Also I can’t stress enough how important photography is. The whole day rushed by so fast and I am so glad I have the beautiful pictures to remember all the details. Also Stephanie and Isaac made us feel so comfortable. It was just like we were having some friends take pictures of us. If you’re going to splurge anywhere it should be on photography!
Inspirations for Wedding/Description of your approach to weddings: I always loved the idea of a barn wedding but they’re a little hard to find in southern California. We wanted a location that wasn’t going to be too far away from where most of our friends and family live. I was so excited when we found Strawberry Farms in Irvine. Who would have known there would be a big red barn at a golf course? We knew from the beginning we wanted a relaxed feel at our wedding and the venue ended up being perfect. I found a lot of inspirations from looking at wedding blogs and crafty websites like Etsy. I made sure I had fun through out the whole process. I’m normally easily stressed out but the whole process was a breeze. Having great vendors really takes most of the stress away.
