Rustic Fall Backyard Wedding, California: Melissa & Charena
When searching for a venue, Melissa and Charena sought something outdoors, rustic and woodsy. Melissa’s friend’s backyard was the perfect place. The couple did everything their own way. A lot of things were DIY, and the event was truly a family affair.
After being together for 10 years, it’s hard to imagine the joy the two felt when their officiant, Bethel Nathan, pronounced them as Mrs. & Mrs. They were legally married!
Melissa’s advice to other couples is: “(The wedding day) is your day, so make sure it represents you and your soon to be spouse. Enjoy the planning process and make sure to make time for each other on the actual day.
