Read on to hear how Sarah and Eric made their love last through a tough long distance relationship and to see how much this pink and peach bejeweled wedding in California cost. Please note that costs change as the years go by, and prices are subject to change. This is just one couple’s breakdown to give you a rough estimate on how much a wedding like this may cost you.

From the Bride:
Eric and I defied many odds in order to end up together. We met through a mutual friend, but from then on, it was never made totally simple for us. He was going to school in San Diego; I was going to school in Malibu. He was a busy engineering student; I was studying abroad for a year in Germany. However, from the first moment we were introduced, we both knew there was something there that distance and inconvenience would ultimately surrender to. Through e-mails, Skype, and other early stages of online communication, we got to know everything about each other over the course of a few years. So when we finally started dating (in person), we realized it had been the distance and inconvenience which made our bond so strong. It was perfect.

Here is a rough breakout of my budget:

Venue, Ceremony, Tables, Chairs, Linens, Food and Drink for 120 people: $20,000
Flowers and Decor : $5,000
Dress: $1,500
Veil: $80
Garter: $40
Shoes: $80
DJ: $2,500
Transportation: $600
Bundt Cake Cupcakes: $300
Photography for wedding & engagement session: $4,500
