I got married on September 1st and man has time flown by since then! The week after the wedding I went straight into training for my job so its kept me really busy. But we finally got our pictures back and had time to sit down and tell you guys about it! Prices are all estimates as we didnt have a total budget, more just like a "we know that's way to expensive so let's not" kinda budget.
VENUE- The Pines Resort in Bass Lake, CA($2500 for venue space, about $3400 for food and bar- 65 people)
PHOTOGRAPHER- Allyson Alm Photography ($1500)
CAKE- Sweet Dreams Cakery (450+ delivery fee)
FLOWERS- Vons!!!! (spent no more than $170)
DRESS- Azazie (now discontinued, was $300ish)
DJ- Yosemite Entertainment ($1000)

There were other expenses I'm sure I forgot, but most of the decor was DIY, from Etsy, or a gift from my MIL, as she is absolutely so creative.
The day was so much fun but went by so quick it was crazy. I felt so disorganized but everyone gave us compliments on how they thought it was so organized! Meaning: THEY dont know if something is wrong, so dont stress too much! The food and cake were absolutely the best part! Some of our family missed the ceremony due to being at the bar (gotta love family ugh) but still the best day ever! We also changed the whole time frame up due to it being way to hot to take pictures standing straight in the sun.
Here's some pics!!!

    Hey Heather!! I loved Kirk as a DJ! My family was ALL up in his business asking for songs and he took all their requests with no problem, which was awesome because my family is so hard to please lol. And we chose the raspberry supreme cake and EVERYONE raved about it! They pretty much all had seconds (and some thirds) and we still have our topper in the freezer that we occasionally take out and eat away at because it's too good to wait a year! Lol. Congrats!
