Teal and Burgundy-inspired Heritage Museum Orange County Wedding
I am ecstatic to share Dani and Chris’s vintage-inspired fall wedding with you today. Their wedding was a fall-lovers dream come true. From deep teal bridesmaid dresses to rich burgundy flowers and vintage accents, their wedding was the perfect ending to our 2017 wedding season. Also, Dani actually works at Heritage Museum and is one of the reasons it is as beautiful as it is, so it was so special to capture the wedding of someone who helps curate my favorite venue!
I was so impressed with the way Chris and Dani curated their wedding to honor their separate past while bringing everything together to start a new future together. From Dani’s great-grandmother’s hand embroidered handkerchief to Chris using the gold from his grandfather’s ring to make his own—their wedding was nothing short of a love letter to their family bonds. It was more than apparent that family means the world to these two and I am convinced that, that will be the legacy they cultivate in their only new family going forward.
Dani took a deep breath and locked arms with her dad. They walked slowly towards Chris, who was waiting under sun-kissed gazebo. Lush pink and red flowers with draping greenery were handing above him, as he nervously clasped his right hand over his left and subconsciously began shifting his weight from one leg to the other. As Dani approached, I could feel the anticipation of the moment. Every storm they battled together, every joyful giggle, every late night phone call, was just one more anchor on the path that led them to the end of this aisle. Dani’s dad stood proudly joined by Dani’s mother as they gave away their baby girl to the man she, for the past 5 years, has been growing in love with.
Chris reached for her hand, as they tenderly touched and stood at the altar. The warm sun kissed glow of the suns setting light gently wrapped them from behind as if encapsulating their love. Dani stood in the warm light, with her veil wrapping around her. In her hand, vows she had written by hand—her heart transcribed onto a piece of paper. He heartfelt words encapsulated their love story, while Chris’s words loving shared his heart. As the ceremony wound down, Dani gently slid the heirloom wedding ring onto Chris’s finger. With that gesture, they took on their new titles of husband and wife, shared a kiss, and were married.
