Caitlin and Matt’s Garden California Wedding by Kambria Fischer Photography

Rustic and elegant garden wedding inspiration from mywedding

Best friends who initially met in the world of online dating, Caitlin and Matt each felt a never-before-experienced sense of comfort and ease about their relationship from the very beginning. “Whatever we experience in this life, we want to experience it together. There was just this sense of peace that we had both finally found the person we wanted to spend our lives with,” Caitlin said. “It was just easy.” The couple, who describe their relationship as seamless, got engaged on Caitlin’s birthday. When Matt surprised Caitlin with a ring in the exact place where they’d had their first date, she burst into tears and ecstatically said, ‘Yes!’

From that moment, the newly engaged couple set out to plan a gorgeous outdoor California wedding, with plenty of rustic, garden-inspired details and a ceremony that fully reflected their faith. Thanks to Kambria Fischer for sharing these incredible photos!
