Orange and mint is such a fun and fresh color combination, perfect for a summer wedding! It looks adorable in today’s DIY picnic wedding. I love the bride’s effortless braided hair and the fab chevron sheet cakes!

When we first got engaged, we talked about the type and size of wedding that we wanted, the first thing we both said was “casual and laid back”.  The ideal wedding and reception for us was being able to relax, and have a nice time hanging out with friends and family.  With that picture in mind, my sister and I sat down and picked the colors, I knew I wanted a marigold/creamcicle orange (my favorite color) so Carol helped me pick colors that complimented that well without being too overwhelming (mint green and light tan).

After I settled on the location (La Entrada park) I focused on decor.  I will admit, Pinterest was a lifesaver. I found so many little details that I was able to personalize and make our own, that I never would have thought of on my own.  The best style to describe the decor for our wedding would be something like a mix of antique/rustic/picnic feel.  All the decor I either made myself by modge-podging dollar store jars and glasses to be different colors, or I found at local thrift and consignment stores in Corrales.

One of my favorite details was finding antique handkerchiefs to give to each bridesmaid to hold with their bouquets, this was special because it matched what I was using as my “Something Old” my great grandmothers handkerchief, which was attahced to my bouqet as well.  I had so much help from friends and family the weel of the wedding putting everything together, finishing last minute crafts projects that came up, it really made the whole process extra special and personalized.  There was not one thing the day of that I had not planned with friends or family, seeing it all in real life as opposed to just the picture I had in my head was way more awesome that I could ever have imagined it to be.
