I am in love with every detail of today’s wedding, photographed by the fabulous Aaron Shintaku (assisted by Ashley Rose) in San Clemente, CA. Nichole and Joel pulled together the entire event themselves – with the help of Nichole’s mother – and it’s one of the most beautiful DIY weddings I’ve ever seen!
Nichole is positively stunning, isn’t she?
Peach is one of my favorite colors for weddings and it’s not used enough – so I was so excited to see these gorgeous peach bridesmaid dresses, paired with casual gold sandals. Perfect for a beach wedding!
Not to be outdone, the men were handsome in light blue suits.
The ceremony was held at the Calafia Beach County Park in San Clemente. There were tons of great spots for photos!
All of the programs were accented with fabric flower details.
(how cute are the ring bearers?)
The reception venue, The Historic Cottage at San Clemente State Beach, was the perfect backdrop for all of Nichole and Joel’s DIY details.
Nichole’s aunt created all of the flower arrangements and her mother sewed these gorgeous table runners!
Guests were treated to homemade cookies and cupcakes and lemonade in mason jars.
Last but not least, my favorite photo – I love how happy and relaxed Nichole and Joel are. That’s what a wedding should be all about!
Aaron, thank you so much for sharing Nichole and Joel’s wedding with EAD!
