Rustic Purple Wedding Ideas

Nestldown is located in the redwoods on acres of lushly landscaped property.  This exceptional wedding venue is located just minutes away from the heart of the Silicon Valley in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It is pretty much the ideal location for a rustic wedding. Mark and Afton loved this wedding venue so much that they sacrificed other wedding splurges in order to have their wedding here. Yep – it’s that good.

Since most of their budget was spent on the venue,  the decor and details were diy. The bride goes into more detail here about her planning process and of course the bow on the back of her dress. Be sure to see more Rustic Purple Wedding Ideas in the full wedding gallery. All of this prettiness was captured by Christina Diane Weddings.

    Love these photo’s. There are many to choose as my favorite…in no particular order..the one with the house in background…the photo with their dog…the one with groom holding the book…one with them running away at the end. Great photo’s…great job..

  15. -100. Noel says:

    Where did the bride get her dress? Stunning!

  16. -100. Heather Mitchell says:

    I have to know where they got this dog. I am 90% sure she is a sister of my dog. She looks exactly like my Crockett, but she is brown. He is Siberian Husky/Newfoundland. He was the only boy in his litter and all his sisters were brown. He was black. Can you somehow ask her if she got her dog in Utah around 2009 August?

  17. -100. Christina says:

    @Heather: Eugene is 12 years old now, so it doesn’t seem like they are brother and sister. :)
