Real Wedding | Melissa + Justin

It’s almost impossible to find the right words to describe the incredible gorgeousness of this amazing California wedding. Simple but chic…relaxed yet perfect…rustic and still elegant. Melissa and Justin married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then celebrated with a casual but sophisticated reception held in a refurbished barn. All the little details (and there are so many here to inspire you!) are what made this event truly special. The creative table settings,  yummy candy bar, the shabby chic décor…mason jar lighting…I could go on and on, but I think I’ll let you discover your own favorites below.

Glowing, comfortable, elegant.

Why Melissa decided to sell her wedding dress

This dress is meant to be worn again, not put in a closet! I want to pass the beauty on to another blushing bride.
