Allison and Bart had a DIY rustic backyard wedding. I love the lavender bouquets and mismatched bridesmaid dresses.
From the Bride: “For our April wedding we wanted a California Mediterranean feel with olive branches, lavender, and light pastel colors. We wanted to have our wedding somewhere close by so all of our friends could make it, and so our families from out of town could see the beautiful area where we decided to settle in together. We also wanted to support the local vendors. After looking at pictures of the Portola Inn, we were sold. It had the perfect layout and look, beautiful landscaping backed by oaks and central coast mountain views.”
“We met Scotty from Scotty’s BBQ outside the local Santa Margarita Tavern and after trying some of his food thought he’d be the perfect fit! We are lucky enough to have some very talented friends, Laura (bridesmaid) made the cake, and she and Chris (the best man) also sang us a duet of All I Want is You by Narry Louis Polisar. Bart tried to serenade Allison with an Eric Church song Love your Love the Most. Eric Church is slightly better. Our other friend James Martinez is a pianist for the Shout House of San Diego made the perfect announcer… even if he didn’t get the site name correct – Portabella Inn!”
