A stunning backyard setting paired with lush greenery was perfect for Monica & Stephen’s chic vintage garden wedding last spring.
How they met: Stephen, my new HUSBAND, and I met six years ago. We lived in two different cities for a year and then decided to both take a leap of faith and move away to a new city for us both. We moved to Sacramento to start our life together and before we knew it we were two love birds engaged. Now we are two love birds married. Each stage of life we have explored together has been nothing short of amazing thus far and we are ecstatic for the future chapters. Stephen asked me to marry him on Christmas. We were engaged for 1.5 years. We both wanted a spring wedding and plenty of time to plan it.
From the bride: Like most brides, I have dreamt of my ideal wedding since I was a little girl. When my dream mate asked me to marry him I knew it was time to get into gear and begin creating that very dream day. Together, we were able to have all those dreams become reality. We were blessed to have our wedding in the beautiful backyard of my husband’s mother and step-father off the water in Lodi, CA on May 13, 2017. I always wanted a spring wedding to enjoy all of nature’s gorgeous greens and florals. The theme of our wedding was to convey a chic, vintage garden, which was easily achievable in such a gorgeous setting. I always have believed that the fine details of a wedding are what bring a good wedding to an amazing wedding. I wanted to be sure each craft was created with love and included the exact details envisioned in my mind. I created multiple signs, paper flowers to indicate what table each guest was assigned to and much more.
