"A few of our favorite things": a nostalgic wedding down memory lane

The theme to our wedding was pretty simple: "these are a few of our favorite things." One of the things that made us fall for each other was our similar interests from childhood. We wanted our wedding to be full of nostalgiac whimsy and, most importantly, us. From the first day we were engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Childrens Fairyland in Oakland, a place near and dear to our hearts. You better believe I called the venue that first day while laying on the beach in Hawaii.

Stars meets nature: a subtly geeky lakeside wedding with DIY for days

We combined our love for nature and the stars into a theme that came very easily for us. It helped that we found a venue that was the perfect setting to view the beauty of nature, as well as get a great view of the stars at night.

Just wait until you see the green lacy, painted goodness of her dress. Add that to her red floral crown and you'll be blown away

The reception space was filled with colorful shapes, DIYed paper craft, and flower combinations. The reception was wild with games, tons of dancing, confetti storms, and fireworks on the beach. When two creative people put their heads together in a gorgeous place like this, magic happens…
