Romantic California Barn Wedding: Dianna + Brian

Romantic California Barn Wedding: Dianna + Brian


Dianna + Brian's California barn wedding was just about as romantic as they come! But don't just take my word for it, you're about to see all the prettiness for yourself! Dreamy, layered hues of ivory, peach and gray provided the perfect base for a slew of charming DIY details, handmade by the bride herself. And the floral design + flower crowns by The Little Branch integrated so naturally into the design, you'd swear you were walking into an environment that had been styled this way for ages. Everything fit so well into the setting at Graf Barn and had a serene, organic feel. Definitely a nice dose of inspiration for other DIY brides who are handcrafting their day! Here's a bit more about it all from Dianna:

We were inspired by nature and vintage love. We wanted the day to be earthy yet romantic. We added so many of our own DIY elements - from the vintage door chandelier photobooth, to the homemade soap and candle guest favors, and then of course the moment I changed into my mother's wedding dress just for the father/daughter dance. The personal touches were endless and the feel and look of the venue radiated what we both love to escape to when we travel on our many roadtrips together.

Big thanks to Love is a Big Deal for sharing Dianna + Brian's gorgeous photos with us and congrats to the newlyweds on a beautiful day!

Dianna + Brian's first look was one of the sweetest I've seen - and was also Brian's favorite moment of the day!

Dianna's look was so ethereal + romantic. Her dress was by Tara Keely which she paired with booties from BHLDN.

And how pretty do the bridesmaids look in their mismatched Jenny Yoo gowns?!

I'm beyond in love with their escort card display, which featured mismatched vintage handkerchiefs denoting the seating layout. The casual arrangement of the props + flowers gave the setting the feel of an old-fashioned shop or market. So sweet!

The barn, where Dianna + Brian hosted their reception, exuded so much charm! Loving the lace textiles, hanging candlelight and mismatched place settings.
