When the bride wears her grandmother’s heirloom wedding dress from 1957, you know the wedding will be gorgeous! Today’s peach California wedding captured by Anna Delores Photography is the perfect example of a wedding filled with meaning and love. The couple even included tile favors to honor their father’s work. The whole look was classic, while being personalized.
We got married on our 13 year dating anniversary surrounded by our family and friends in Santa Barbara, California. For us, it was important for our special day to reflect us as a couple, but also to be fun and comfortable for our guests. AKA – We wanted to get sentimental, eat good food, and dance. Visually, we picked a venue and color palette that would be timeless.
Olivia wore her late grandmother’s wedding dress from 1957. She worked with a seamstress to create a more modern neckline for the lace gown, but other than that they left the design untouched. She also wore her other grandmother’s pearl earrings as her “something borrowed”, which was very special.
Documenting our wedding was really important to us. We invested in incredible photography by Anna Delores Photography and it was the best decision. We skipped having a traditional bridal party opting to just have our siblings be our bridesmaids and groomsmen.
We really wanted to get married on our dating anniversary, which happened to be in January. People thought it was insane to plan a semi-outdoor winter wedding, but we took the risk. It paid off! We had beautiful weather.
Griffin’s father was a tile contractor and we decided to honor his trade by using handmade tiles as escort cards that could later be used as coasters.
