When looking through Robyn and Dean’s wedding photos we couldn’t help but notice not only her gorgeous dress, but the explosion of color that was happening in all of the florals! From wildflowers to dahlias, they accented the bride’s accessories perfectly. Robyn’s Wtoo Jasmine dress was so gorgeous against the backdrop of their charming farm setting.
Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
Nature, garden flowers, farms, Italy, dinner parties.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
For us, it was location, great food and wine, and photography. We spent the bulk of money on those things and pulled everything else together ourselves. DIY is a lot of work, but in the end, it reflects love and detail you can’t buy. Printing and designing my own paper goods was really easy and saved hundreds of dollars. My brother was the DJ, but he had so much fun in lugging the speaker around and was proud to do it. The challenges and stresses of the DIY projects were definitely there, but they were all overcome by love and support from friends and family members. Isn’t that what a wedding is really about anyway? A big family get together!
What was the most memorable moment?
There are so many! Besides the classics: Wedding photos with chickens and goats. It was so much fun and perfect for who we are. They also made for some great renditions of American Gothic. A chorus of local church bells broke out in song during our service. I remember thinking money couldn’t buy that moment. Our nieces and nephews dancing around us on our first dance. They were squealing with delight and seemed almost like fairies. Lighting our wishing lantern. Dean picking me up to carry me across our yurt threshold. I started to cry because I had completely forgotten about that since I was a little girl.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Go with your gut, and don’t second guess yourself. There are so many choices and decisions involved in wedding planning, you’ll drive yourself (and everyone else) crazy if you change your mind. We planned our wedding in three months and everything turned out better than we both imagined. Just do it! Also, my one regret was not getting a videographer, or even just asking a friend to shoot it on their iPhone.

This week we were inspired by one of our favorite prints by Rifle Paper Co. Peach and blush are always two of our go-to picks for wedding inspiration for their soft and gentle hues, but paired with a plum and deep green they take on a whole new character. These colors allow you to play with a more moody edge to your feminine side.
Rifle Paper Co. is our favorite place to find the prettiest paperies, inspiring prints, and darling phone cases.
Ivy & Aster will be bringing the pretty to Lovely LA May 2-4th. Their Spring 2014 collection is pictured below, and we love their season inspired photo shoot. Schedule your appointment before they fill up here! You’ll be glad you did.
