Intimate Wedding in the Woods | Pine Hills Lodge, Julian, CA // Dani + Kole | Sneak Peek

Trying something new today! I was attempting to create a "sneak peek" from this past weekend's wedding - my first wedding of 2018! - and just throw together a few photos as a little teaser, but clearly I got carried away, and can you blame me?! I seriously loved everything about Dani and Kole's intimate wedding in the woods of Julian, California at the beautiful Pine Hills Lodge! Dani's incredible Alvina Valenta layered tulle dress, her kickass leather jacket with her new name painted on it by her aunt, the fact that she and Kole had some awesome custom socks made with their dogs on them to incorporate them into their wedding, and their handmade ceremony arbor that was also crafted by their aunt (isn't she awesome?)! Holy cow, and those incredible florals by Joy of Blooms! And I love that Dani opted for white converse over heels - I'm definitely an advocate of my adventurous brides choosing sneakers, hiking boots, or otherwise comfortable and personal wedding footwear for their big day! They also sent me home with a freaking amazing gift, a Yeti Rambler mug - they know my husband and I love camping (and so do they!) and this is definitely one of the best gifts a couple has gotten me, it was so personal and I can't wait to use it!
