Michelle and Jose fused black, red, and a playful sense of fun for their wedding at California's The Secret Garden Lindsay. The pair brought a whole lot of DIY to the day, including Michelle adding a detachable section to her red wedding gown, and even self-catering her reception. The ceremony was presented in both English and Spanish, and the wedding party managed to pile into a bounce house for a handful of unexpected bridal party photos!

The red and black decor and attire offered an excellent contrast to the green garden, and I'm pretty sure these guys aren't going to forget their simultaneous cake-in-face smash anytime soon.


  1. Gorgeous wedding! I now want to rent a bouncy house. 🙂
    Also, I would really love to know how the "self catering" came about, worked, etc. Mr. Zebra and I are struggling to find a caterer within our budget, and I'm just inclined to do it all ourselves!
