Today’s featured wedding is extra special for two reasons: first, it features not one but TWO ceremonies (an American one and a Cambodian one) AND it was photographed by our extremely talented #PrettyPerfectPartner Erika Layne!

From the Bride:

I wanted to do something that was inspired by our relationship, Something, simple, organic, natural, industrial and earthy. We picked brushed metals as our color scheme because that’s what our home looks like and my engagement ring was a healing stone picked by a jeweler in Hawaii while on a hike in a cave.

The Reception

“I did a ton of DIY projects with my maid of honor/best friend Nalo Wise. She helped me do the entire wedding basically. We spray painted old books gold to represent me because I’m a writer. My husbands step father made all of the flower beds that held the succulents as centerpieces out of recycled wood. The guest were able to take them home after the wedding. Nalo made all of the wedding parties jewelry, head pieces and the mens boutonnieres out of succulents. My other maid of honor Brittany wrote all of the guest names on old mirrors we spray painted and repurposed.”

“My friend Elli hand made each invitation and table place card. My entire wedding was DIY, and I couldn’t have done it without my cousins Nalo. She even made my bouquet, as well as my head piece and decorated the desert table. My aunt made the broom we jumped and almost everything had a personal touch.”

The Traditional Ceremony

“Our Cambodian wedding ceremony was the following day and was traditional. We wore pink and gold as those colors looked good on both of our skin tones and let my husbands father and cousin decorate and coordinate the day. My favorite part was walking down the aisle and seeing my husband and daughter waiting for me with smiles. My nephew and brother broke the runner and my daughter went down the aisle before she was supposed to but I didn’t even care. I wasn’t going to let little things ruin my beautiful day.”
