This beautiful real wedding by Still Music Photography is the perfect way to start the week! Leann and Evan were married this summer in Coronado, and treated their guests to a lovely day at the beach, complete with a monochromatic dessert table, adorable kids’ table gifts, and a fun party that went to the wee hours. Read below for Leann’s inspiration for her DIY projects and more!
What was your weddingâ€™s theme?
The theme for the wedding was vintage burlap and lace. It was very DIY and I got tons of ideas from pinterest and etsy. One of my very favorite aspects was my bouquet which had antique broaches from my great-great grandmother, great grandmother and grandmother. It was beautiful and so special.Â I loved my hanging mason jars with flowers in them….. they were so cute and so cheap! Also I used tons of chalk boards all throughout the venue for decor. My favorite DIY chalkboard , though, was the menu that I made. I used an old window and chalkboard spray painted it. It was perfect!
Did your wedding location hold a specific significance to you?
We fell in love with our venue on the spot.Â We wanted a beach venue and we love Coronado so it just worked out perfectly!
What was the most meaningful part of your day?
There was one thing that Evan and I will never forget. The rainbow that was in the sky right after our ceremony ended. Evan proposed under a rainbow, so that made it even more special. It was so beautiful and a moment we will forever be near and dear to our hearts.
How did you know your partner was “the one”?
Evan and I were together for 4 years before he proposed. He popped the question in the Swiss Alps under a rainbow. It was so perfect and beautiful! I was so surprised! We were on a month long European vacation and he carried the ring around the whole time until about 5 days before we were to go home. It was so surreal and gorgeous, like in a movie.
Any advice you’d give new brides who are just getting started?
I would say to enjoy every minute of it! All the planning goes so fast and just simply being engaged is an amazing time in each and every couples lives. Itâ€™s fun and exciting! Try not to stress the small stuff and have FUN planning!
