Eloisa and Dan's destination wedding surrounded by sequoias makes me want to cuddle up around a fire in my sleeping bag. They're weren't completely isolated though, since they were at Seven Circles Retreat in the teeny town of Badger, CA (population: 140!).

If getting away from it all (and fashionably so) doesn't pull you in, these other details just might: jam jar favors, a thumb print motorbike sketch, homemade lemon and mint water, and lots of Philippine and Romanian home-cooked food. It's the multicultural camp-out of my back-to-nature theme week dreams. We have Mariela Campbell Photography to thank for giving us this mini, virtual vacation.

Comments on A sweet and small fashionable wedding among the sequoias

  1. Kindred spirits! My groom wore a blue shirt, has very little hair on his head, wears glasses, and we got a Presidential note too! I love how elegant this looked yet so comforting. Congrats!

  2. how cool!! I love badger I will be there on mothers day! my soon to be mother in law lives there. Its a gorgeous wedding and looks so relaxed and laid back, and the veil, super cute and sexy. :))

  3. Thank you for the feature and everyone’s kind comments!
    Mariela was an amazing photographer who went above and beyond and she really captured the moments I would not have thought of -because I was too exhausted ha!

    It really was such a lovely day and the best part was that we made it our own.
    Oh and that veil was super simple to do and entirely diy 🙂
