Before we start, let’s back it up a bit … if you recall, we posted Wildflowers Photography, Pixar’s Up Inspired Engagement Shoot. Take a look by visiting here! Long story short, Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera (writer and producer of the movie UP!) sent Lynnette and James a customized hand drawing based on them and a little note about how much they loved their engagement photos. The photo is below! Pretty amazing…right?
Yay to Wedding Chicks for being so rad and helping guide these photos up to the big head honchos. Such a rad thing that they took interest in the couple and Pixar even called me to say how much they loved the photos.
Joy. To see more photos of the wedding please click here.
From Lynnette the bride on their wedding:
After 8 years of growing in love James and I decided to invite our closest friends and family to celebrate our marriage and everyone in our lives who brought us together. It was as much about our friends and family as it was about us. We were engaged in our favorite vintage photo booth at the Musee Mechanique in San Francisco, so we knew from the beginning that we had to have a photo booth at the wedding and everyone had a great time taking photos in it!
We wanted the wedding to be unique, personal, intimate and beautiful which it turned out to be all of those things! We wanted every aspect to represent “us” from the handmade save the dates and invitations to the picnic blankets and baskets we used in lieu of chairs at the ceremony. We had one of our best friends perform the ceremony which meant so much to us. It was so special saying our own self written vows and “crossing our hearts” to love each other rather than saying “I do”.
On their wedding inspiration:
Lynnette and Jame’s wedding was loosely based on our favorite Pixar movie “UP”! Some fun items that they included was picnic baskets, grape soda, a painted mailbox and a few balloons!
They had help from family and friends along the way to make this incredible day come alive. They made their save the dates and invites with help from their moms. Lynnette and her Mom made the entire dessert bar based on the adorable custom cake topper from lollipopworkshop on Etsy. We love the use of vintage hankies to make an adorable bunting backdrop. Everything came together and looks quite amazing.
If you are not looking to have a DJ you might want to see if you can borrow sound equipment from friends who also helped set up a iPod DJ station!
