Hello all,

How was your weekend?

Zee and I had our 'farewell London' night out / in on Saturday night with a bunch of our closest friends and oh what fun we had ~ I'm going to miss them all terribly! (We're already busy planning their visits to the US of A to see us.)

Onto the loveliness...

A darling 50′s inspired dress, rustic cotton bouquet, unique orange stoned engagement ring and incredible hilltop views set the tone for this beautiful, DIYed from top to toe, farmhouse wedding in California. I can't think of a lovelier way to start the week!

Here's what the talented folk at Sunday Romance Photography had to say:

Shelly and David are a wonderful couple who treat others with tremendous kindness and respect. So when they asked for the help of friends to plan their wedding, they not only helped, but many went above and beyond. With everyone pitching in, the total cost of the wedding came to only $5,000.
