One thing we love about receiving submissions from California-based vendors? Soaking up all the sunlight while we're hiding from winter here in Maryland!! And this wedding blew us away when we saw it - not only is it filled with all of the glowy light and warmth that you'd expect from a CA wedding, but when you tell us how the bride made just about EVERYTHING for their day and the vendor team is only 2 companies, AND it looks this good.. yeah that's music to our ears!! We're obsessed with this unique take on their centerpieces - elevated metal and wood shelves that held greenery and glass bubbles make for a dramatic and dynamic reception look! So many great ideas featured here - we're so glad to share it! Enjoy being whisked off to this warm sunny day with us!
From MFD Photo: I promise, this is the best DIY wedding you’ve seen! For almost a year now I would see fun DIY projects that Tiffany and Omar were working on for their wedding. From painting and staining wood to making their guest hotel bags. I saw it all and Tiffany’s Instagram only made me more and more giddy as time went by.When I say this wedding was a DIY wedding, I mean it! Their vendor list isn’ t very long because Omar and Tiffany with the help of their friends and family created 90% of the beautiful details you saw on their wedding day. Omar hand painting the figurines on their cake. Tiffany’s dad made the arch that went over the sweet heart table. Tiffany printed their programs. The hotel bags, thank you gifts, entry mirror at the venue… all Tiffany. Their center pieces were created by hand and stained by them as well. So much work went into this wedding by the bride and groom and let me just say that it was AMAZING. I was blown away by their creativity and attention to detail… I’m pretty sure Tiffany can start a career as a wedding planner without a hitch. I sure would be the first to recommend her ;).
My favorite part of their day was their first dance. If I’m completely honest, I'm not a huge emotional person and yet Tiffany and Omar’s first dance made me tear up with happy tears. They danced to the tune of UP. You know, the beginning of the movie when they play the super cute love story? yes. That song. They definitely got me!
The fabulous vendor team
