Garden Wedding at Green Gables Estate, California (17)

Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Jamie B. Photography, takes place in a lush garden setting and is absolutely brimming with sweet, romantic details! Here’s the lovely bride, Alysse, to tell us more:

We met in 2012 while I was visiting home for a few days. We were at a mutual friends when I saw him and immediately felt an overwhelming attraction. I did what I could to be near him or talk to anyone that was talking to him. What I didn’t realize is that he felt the same. After one very minimal but pleasant conversation I was off again back to NYC with this handsome man now in my past; or so I thought.

See more after the cut!

A few days after returning to New York I received a Facebook message from him. We started messaging, then texting which led to phone calls. Two weeks later he was visiting me in New York. After months of back and forth we decided I would move back to really give this thing a chance. On my 28th birthday he proposed to me in Corona del Mar California on the cliffs.

From there the wedding planning immediately began. I knew I wanted a vintage feel but something that was classic, that I could look back in years to come and it still feel relevant. I wanted soft colors that weren’t overwhelming but simple and pretty. We did not have a wedding coordinator or any professional help with the planning. We did everything with the help of our families from the flowers to the fan programs. Every detail was important to me and I had a blast bringing this vision to life!
