mariah & johnathan
This is a peek into my own special day with my husband, Johnathan. I designed our wedding suite and day-of decor to complement the atmosphere of the venue. We got married in the backyard of a historic home in a tiny town near San Francisco, CA. Think tall redwoods, a big wooden deck, and twinkly lights. It was absolutely perfect for us.
the big day
not like everybody else:
Kraft paper with hand-painted gold ombre shine
Vellum envelopes with hand-lettered addressing
Custom polaroids with save-the-date
Gold envelopes with hand-lettered addressing
Custom day of decor included welcome sign, seating chart display, and hand-made charcuterie boards
Hand-stitched leather bound guest book created by the maid of honor
We were married under a birch wood archway that Johnathan designed and built
pieces of our story
We have a cat named Achilles who we love just a little too much.
We both prefer whiskey over wine.
We surprised our wedding guests by performing an Argentinian tango for our first dance.
"It truly was, and continues to be, the happiest day of my life."
