©2016 Sun & Sparrow Photography // Barn wedding at Strawberry Farms in Irvine
FROM THE BRIDE // Over the years I have always been fond of rustic weddings and weddings in barns, so when I got engaged I already knew I wanted a rustic wedding/décor. When I went to look at Strawberry Farms Golf Course and saw the barn, I knew right away that that’s where I wanted Ryan and me to get married. I loved the idea of having a fall wedding and using navy and burnt orange as our wedding colors. I used all of these pieces to help inspire me while I was planning and creating the decor for our wedding.
I could not have asked for our wedding day to have gone any better than it did. The day was filled with so many amazing moments it’s hard to just pick out one moment that was most memorable. But if I had to choose, it would probably be walking down the aisle and seeing my future husband standing at the end, waiting to say our vows in front of all our family and friends.
When I started the wedding planning process I knew that picking the right photographers was top priority. I knew the day was going to go by fast, because of this, I wanted someone that would be able to capture all the priceless moments of our special day. A friend recommended Sun & Sparrow after using them for their own wedding. After looking at their work and seeing how amazing all their pictures looked, I knew that they were the ones that I wanted to be our photographers on our big day.
My advice to future brides would be to don’t let the stress of planning the wedding get in the way of you enjoying how amazing it is to be marrying the one you love. Also make sure to enjoy the day of the wedding because it may sound like you have heard it a thousand times, but it really does go by in blink of an eye. So don’t let the little things get to you, relax and remember that the day is for you and your future husband, so enjoy it.
Ryan and I were together for 7 years prior to getting married, so it is so nice being able to call him my husband. It still puts a big smile on my face every time. I love everything about being married and knowing I get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing guy.
