Walnut Grove Boho Geometric Wedding | Moorpark, California // Brittany + Ivan
Brittany and Ivan met when they were working together at the Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo, CA and fell in love through years of going on camping adventures, enjoying road trips together, and eating delicious food - my kind of couple! Ivan proposed in the Sequoias under the stars by a crackling fire and we honored that beautiful memory with an epic Engagement Session in Sequoia National Park – check it out here! After going on that adventure with them and my husband, being part of their wedding day was even more special!
On their wedding day at Walnut Grove in Moorpark, CA, Brittany was most excited about their First Look, where they decided to share their own private vows with each other. Their day was so full of their personalities and their love. Ivan made a custom mailbox just like the one from the movie “Up” for their card gift box, their rings were kept in a beautiful little ceramic egg, the adorable custom mini jars of honey as their wedding favors for their guests, and their wooden geometric ceremony arch in the shape of a hexagon was made by Brittany’s brother! One of the coolest things I’ve seen is that one of their loved ones created a magnificent painting of one of their wedding photos – I can definitely say that’s one of the most unique things I’ve seen done with any photo I’ve taken!
The overall style for their day was inspired by a rustic vibe, with lots of flowers, greenery, geometric shapes and candles everywhere, accented with navy blue, steel blue, and forest greens. Ivan’s look was one of my favorite groom looks I’ve seen, with a tweed bow tie and vest, brass buttons, a chef’s knife tie clip, happy astronaut pocket square, cool socks and fashionable shoes! And Brittany looked like a forest princess with her boho lace dress by Chic Nostalgia from Lili Bridals and her elegant hair braid and hairpiece to match!
Their Send-Off was one of the sweetest I’ve photographed, they had a beautiful Bubble Send-Off with all of their loved ones to see them off! Their getaway car was Ivan’s kickass Tacoma with “Just Married” on the back – and they were off to their Honeymoon road tripping in Yosemite and the Russian River staying in revamped airstreams (I’m jealous)! It was truly an honor to be a part of their day and with their loved ones hugging and thanking us so much, they made us feel like family!
