This is the story of Tris + Remi and their vegan, woodland fairy themed wedding in California. The tables set with medieval chalices and collected vintage cutlery, candles flickering wildly. Homemade jam upon every plate. Hand drawn table settings and a wedding seal illustrated by the bride. Their day inspired by Midsummer nights dream, the secret garden, her favorite fairytale, and art nouveau works.
They aimed for their day to feel cozy + elegant just like their home and life.
One of her best friends sewing last minute details, as all of the girls prepare in a room filled with family heirlooms. Their first look, on the path between his childhood home and his best friend’s home down the street. The same path he has taken countless times as a child. Now, where he embraces his bride in her flowy, vegan gown and her antique German crown.
They exchanged their vows in the backyard of the home he grew up in, overlooking the Napa River. Boats sailing by, joining the celebration by tooting their horn. Afterward, everyone gathered in the living room for a great vegan feast. Tears, cheers, and cakes adorned with edible butterflies. Romantic, eclectic, whimsical, otherworldly. And they danced the night away under twinkling lights and then drove away in their vegan love mobile.
