The Cutest California DIY Wedding Ever

We have a huge crush on Joy Harmon Prouty of Wildflowers Photography and we are over the moon to share her next wedding with you. If you recall, we actually featured Rochelle and Bobby’s darling engagement shoot. Inspired By Their Love Of Children was the theme of the engagement shoot which naturally carried on to their wedding decor and was actually styled by Wildflowers Photography as well. Talk about a jack of all trades.

Rochelle and Bobby wanted their wedding to be fun, creative, personal, handmade, inexpensive and a theme based upon all things childlike. They also firmly believed that it should be a day celebrating their love for God and their childlike joy in waiting on His timing in bringing the two of them together.

From Wildflowers Photography on the creative touches of the day:

Pinwheels made out of children’s book pages, paper chains, painted cardboard clouds, quilts hanging as backdrops, hundreds of old time candies, paper flowers, chalkboard artwork, cupcakes topped with fruit loops, gummy worms and sprinkles, a dinner catered by an in & out truck, a cotton candy machine, multicolored paper crowns, handmade boutonnieres with kites colored by my Gracie, paper “leaves” cut from an old Cinderella storybook and a lollipops, 20 pairs of converse sneakers and one fantastic hand made swing set.
