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. Their ceremony was held at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, and the afternoon lunch reception was held at the beautiful Il Fornaio restaurant. 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 their gorgeous S’mores favors!). 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 couple’s decadent Southern favorite, a red velvet cake, was created by Vanilla Bake Shop. Meg’s talent for capturing all of the lovely moments of a wedding never ceases to amaze me!
