Dakota + Alec’s Rustic Vintage DIY Wedding

Dakota and Alec are living proof you can get married in one of the most beautiful and affluent cities in Southern California and have a gorgeous, budget friendly wedding thanks to some DIY and generous friends!  Details include invitations designed by the maid-of-honor (who just happens to be a graphic designer), flowers put together by friends, a vintage door-turned-seating chart, and a stunning cake made by a family friend.  (Side note – How do all these couples become friends with amazing bakers, and how can I sign up for this?)

Chalkboard signs made from old mirrors (bonus points for the pun):
