The bride, in a stunning lace and tulle mermaid gown steals the show (as she should!) in this rustic fall wedding on IBT today. The nuptials take place at a beautiful venue in Sonora, CA; a candlelit barn for the ceremony, and outdoor tree-lined clearing for the reception. They covered it in beautiful greenery and florals in shades of blush and burgundy. It’s all so romantic! Read on for the bride’s depiction of the big day, as well as her photographer’s Danyelle Dee Photography.
Danyelle shares, Where do I even begin?? This wedding was just drop dead beautiful from beginning to end. Christina and Fausino were married at the best venue in the Sonora area, Union Hill Inn. And with a venue like this, you just know the wedding will NOT disappoint. The love these two share for each other goes beyond what you can imagine. They have a son who tried to steal the show whenever he could, so cute!
The fall tones throughout the florals and decor perfectly tied into Christina’s stunning dress as well as Faustino’s rocking suite. Hues of burgundy and blush with lots of greenery just made this September wedding pop!
It was hard not to enjoy the party once the music started! Their guests were out there hitting the dance floor like there was no tomorrow! This day was full of love and laughter, and beautiful too! I wish I could go back and photograph it all over again!
The bride shares…
For our wedding day, we wanted three things: look good, have fun, and be comfortable! We had a budget in mind and wanted to maximize it to create a memorable experience for our guests, and to truly celebrate our love for each other. The best way I would describe it would be simple elegance. The colors were soft, the flowers were vibrant but not too much, and love was all around.
Florals were the main aspect of the decor. We had a soft color palette with pops of color and a lot of greenery. The bride’s bouquet was slightly different than that of the bridesmaids with a special flower in recognition of my father who passed away. We also had florals in the pews in the barn, and behind us at the ceremony backdrop. For the reception, tables had flower names instead of numbers and were linked to special family members (e.g. my grandma’s favorite flower as she passed away over ten years ago). It was a small way for me to feel like they were included without making it a huge statement.
