Imagine it is a beautiful Fall afternoon, with a slight breeze in the air… you’re standing in the middle of the woods, surrounded by big tall beautiful trees and the people you love the most. Now imagine just how all of that fills you up with big bursts of joy… and that is exactly how the day went down for our couple today, Jaymee and Drew. Sarah Maren Photography captured this magical California wedding at the Berkeley Botanical Gardens with lots of photos of our beautiful couple amongst the nature in the gorgeous sunlight as well as all the DIY components… I can’t wait to share them with you!

Our beautiful bride Jaymee is a designer, and of course she’s got to design all aspects of her wedding. Just exactly how involved was she? See that gorgeous LOVE sign (shown above) that sits right behind the head table? Yeah, don’t ask where she bought it because she designed it! For the double win, they’re re-using the sign as the headboard! She also DIY her own bouquet as well as the escort cards. The gorgeous succulent that’s decorated all over the reception? She planted those! And one of my favorite component of the wedding, the glittered table numbers and signs… yep! she DIY those herself, too! What can’t Jaymee do??

How adorable were Jaymee & Drew? And how cute were the bridesmaids’ dresses? I love that minty bluish-green color and how Jaymee found her wedding shoes to match the bridesmaids. Jaymee really allowed her taste and style to shine through this natural beauty of a wedding. Congratulations to the two of you and thank you for allowing us to share your wedding with our readers!
