This wedding is so amazing there are going to be several blog entries about it. You’ve been properly warned. Bride Ashley had so many lovely details at her wedding from incorporating heirlooms from her grandmother and great grandmother (her buttons and her wedding ring on her bridal bouquet) to her love of paper (including using vintage stamps), to the amazing food from her employer, Wolfgang Puck Catering, to the wooden dessert stands being from trees in the backyard of Ashley’s childhood home.

I especially loved that Ashley used 14 Etsy artists to make her wedding day especially unique.

Laura and Patrick dated for seven years, traversing through college and their post-academia years together. From finals to job interviews to settling down, they stuck by each other through each phase of life. However, once Patrick proposed to Laura, they decided not to wait any longer. With little time to spare, they planned a sophisticated coastal wedding in two months. Their mantra became “don’t sweat the small stuff,” and by the time Laura walked down the aisle, they both knew this new chapter would be the very best.
Snowy white orchids dripped along the ceremony path at this elegant beachside nuptial.
