Real Weddings: Cynthia + Dustin

Cynthia and Dustin’s wedding is just dreamy. I think it’s the lovely floral designs by Peony and Plum paired with the exquisite photography of Meg Perotti and an artistic vision by the bride and groom that was seamlessly carried throughout the event.

Cynthia created her beautiful programs and their accompanying muslin bags herself.  Packaging was a key element of their wedding.

I love it when couples meet prior to the ceremony for a first look!

Their ceremony was held at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.

Meg always captures the most relaxed and natural portraits.  Beautiful!

Cynthia’s parents had a wooden tree in their home that was transformed for the event with paper poms from Pom Love and DIY escort cards attached to twine with clothespins.  The finishing touch?  A custom wood sign by Etsy seller Roberto Sand (which matched the favor tag on the gorgeous S’mores favors you may remember from yesterday!).

In lieu of a traditional guest book, the couple opted for a wedding certificate signed by their guests designed by the amazing Anna Bond of Rifle Design.

The centerpieces created by Peony and Plum are perfection – I love the soft shades of pink, red, and green paired with lemons, limes, and small apples for a whimsical touch!

The S’mores favors doubled as place cards.
