James & Crystal // June Lake Mountain wedding

how she did itFROM THE BRIDE //  

James and I were just looking to have a fun day to share with our family & friends. Since we both enjoy the outdoors, a rustic wedding seemed like the way to go.
I would have to say that our favorite and most memorable part would have to be the chairlift ride up the mountain for all our guests and the breath taking views from all angles of our venue site.

Photography was important to us because it is the only way to capture these once in a life time memories and for us to be able to share these memories with our future children. We chose Sun & Sparrow because you girls are awesome and fun and our friends! I wouldn’t have had it any other way because it was easy to let loose and be ourselves in front of people we already knew. Not to mention seeing all the other weddings and events they have been a part of were spectacular!!!

Oh man, DIY… To complete our rustic theme, mason jars were our main project. My mom and I diligently worked on the center piece vases by wrapping 40+ mason jars with burlap followed by a slightly narrower piece of lace and then topped it off with tying a piece or coral cord and a “love” charm around the mouth of the jar. Then we moved on to the small jelly jars that we wrapped with a burlap ribbon and completed it with a small white ribbon flower. For our escort cards and the display, I ordered business cards from the company that made our invitations so that we could stick with the theme of that and then one of my bridesmaids helped out by hand writing all our guest names and their table assignments. The display, I found a large clearance frame at the local craft store, strung twine across and pinned up each card with a small mini-clothespin. And, I believe that is it for the DIY, at least the big stuff!

For those ladies that are planning a wedding right now, make sure to do you and your fiance… no one else! Friends and family will have their opinion, but this day is about the 2 of you and no one else!!! Also, do everything in your power to have fun with it. You will always come across speed bumps that will try to cause stress, but remember to stay calm and work through it. On your wedding day, be open to the things that will inevitably go wrong, and when something does go wrong, embrace it and laugh!!!
The awesome thing about being married is knowing that I am officially tied to the man that I love!!!
