What a way to wrap our year, with the anniversary of this absolutely darling vintage wedding in Balboa Park. It was intimate and DIY and tender, with the cutest retro crew. When Liz & Ross first got in touch, we geeked over a mutual love for the past and our art school backgrounds. But we also chatted about how tricky it can be to find balance in planning a wedding that’s not your first. Inspiration for second weddings is relatively non-existent and dated. Add to that that these two are proudly plus-size, and they also ran into frustration seeking inspiration in that regard as well.
For both of them, they wanted to make sure only the things that mattered most were prioritized, and that led them to plan a tiny charming union in the very place they had their first date (art museum first date? Swoon!). I loved their vision to rally everyone back at their utterly charming pad for tea and cake afterward—homemade by the bride—and loved most of all how seriously they take their champagne. The answer is very. I had such fun with their playful close-knit group, and loved getting a little window into their stylish, fun world (seriously, scope out their apartment and you’ll have heart eyes for days). What a privilege to have had the good fortune to help them celebrate this significant union.
