Rural, Ranch Wedding in California

July 14

San Luis Obispo, California


Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The moment I stepped foot on the venue, I knew I couldn’t get married anywhere else. The venue had three houses on the property, which worked out perfectly for our close family and friends. We were able to spend three whole days together-so many memories were made. I will forever be thankful that we were able to spend so much time together.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Maika, our 7-year-old Labrador retriever, as my flower girl. She is my baby girl and was the last one to walk down the aisle before me. That was a very special moment for my husband and I. 

2. The pie bar with mini pies to feed everyone instead of a cake, which was cute and cost-effective.

3. The lemonade stand (refreshment bar) before the ceremony.  

3. Give us one moment in your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

When I think of our wedding, countless moments come to mind. One in particular, is the feeling of complete and utter happiness I felt when the ceremony was over, and we were able to hug and kiss as husband and wife. I had never felt anything like that before, and it’s one of the moments that I think about often. 

Are You Including Your Pet in Your Wedding Day?

Including your pet in your wedding party has become a popular trend these days. It has become so popular that there are even personalized bow ties, collars, leashes, and ring bearer pillows made especially for dogs. However, it’s important that you make sure your ceremony site allows pets before you decide to include them in your wedding party – or buy these adorable accessories. You might also want to talk with your bridal party and see who would be willing to walk your furry friend down the aisle – as much as we love our pets we don’t want to be distracted from saying our vows!

Favors: Felt Corgi Dogs

Posted by bridalbuds on Apr 04, 2011

A while back ago when I felt like I could do 100 DIY projects, I made these.  At first, I was thinking I could do 350 of these for favors.  But, after about doing 10 of them…that didn’t fall through.  Each one took a while to do, but they turned out really cute!  I made these felt magnet corgi’s in memory of my dog that passed away about a year and a half ago.  They’re now posted on our magnet board.

Flower Girl or Flower Dog?

Posted by bridalbuds on Jun 10, 2009

Many aspects of our first wedding are not what you would call traditional or even typical. Our wedding party has 1 more groomsman than we have bridesmaids and we will not be having any flower girls or any ring bearers.

Because there will be no children as part of our wedding party, many people have jokingly asked if I will have my dog Bella bring the rings down the aisle for us?
