weekly wrap up + california wedding

by Stephanie


This has been a week of such happiness, good news and exciting new things that I couldn’t resist ending with another happy day: the wedding of two designers in California. Danni and Nick met at The Art Institute; he was studying game design, and she was focusing on graphic design. After meeting at a friend’s poker night they clicked, and Nick proposed during a trip to Seattle (he even made her a wooden ring).





For the big day, Danni and Nick chose to get married on their five-year anniversary of dating at a park in Fullerton, California, where they had their first date. What I love so much about their big day is that they actually reversed their wedding schedule to have the reception first because they wanted to get married at sunset. So at 4pm, guests gathered and everyone shared a picnic basket lunch together. Blankets were laid on the ground and everyone was able to pick up delicious wrapped food and eat together in the sun. I think it’s such a sweet and romantic way to start off a fun celebration, which ended with a post-ceremony dessert party. Danni has shared all the details below, so I hope you’ll enjoy this glimpse inside a beautiful day as much as I did. Thanks to Danni and Nick for sharing their photos, taken by Christian Cruz & Hope Feathers.

Before we dive into the wedding (which continues after the jump), there is a summary of this week’s content below. Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday (with some pictures of our new apt.)! xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:
