Casey and Jacob were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony just north of San Diego, and their wedding was truly a family affair. Everyone pulled together to create a day that celebrated not only the bride and groom, but the community of friends and family they surround themselves with. For the tables, Casey’s mom created table runners from a bolt of burlap purchased at a fabric store, and vintage milk bottles and blue mason jars were painstakingly collected by the bride, her mother, and grandfather for use as centerpieces. All the floral elements of the wedding were created by a family friend who worked in the floral industry and had access to a wholesale flower market where all the flowers were selected days before the wedding. To save trees (and money!) they decided to forgo traditional paper programs and instead created a program chalkboard for the ceremony, and used a vintage suitcase that had been gifted to Casey as a card box. Jacob’s dad also outdid himself – not only did he reinvent old fence boards into signs for the wedding, he and his friends catered the entire wedding! Casey’s mother created the wedding cupcakes from scratch, and the favors of jam were made from produce grown in her parents’ garden.
