wedding bells: a shop horne wedding

by Grace Bonney

i absolutely adore getting a peek at well-designed weddings so i was thrilled to hear from alissa and ryan at shop horne about their recent nuptials. after seeing their incredible sneak peek (which is, to this day, one of my top three favorites) i was curious to see what sort of beautiful decorations they would come up with and of course, i was not disappointed. this is one of the most beautiful weddings i have ever seen. i’m so thrilled that alissa and ryan, and their wedding photographer jose villa, were kind enough to share these images with us. i hope you’ll enjoy the beautiful design details as much as i did. before we launch into the images and alissa’s descriptions, i just wanted to add that alissa and ryan’s wedding took place at san ysidro ranch in montecito california, was designed by lisa vorce of oh, how charming!, their flowers were designed by mindy rice of mindy rice floral design, and photographed by jose villa.

ps: there are WAY too many pictures here to edit them down to any fewer than 20, so please be sure to CLICK HERE (or click “read more” below) to see the full set, which continues well after the jump!

[The tumbleweeds were handpicked by my mother and father in West Texas and shipped to California for the wedding and I think they were an awesome addition to the decor (especially those that were done chandelier-style). ]

[Evan and Christine of Yellow Owl Workshop did all of our wedding paper products and I want to hug them and kiss them everything was so beautiful! Chris even hand painted our menus and our invitations!]

[The little silver cups that you will see in some of the images were made by Miranda Meilleur (they have our wedding date inscribed on the bottom) and were our wedding gift to our guests. HORNE will soon be carrying her silver bowls]
