I am totally in love with this real wedding! It is one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen, in the most simplest of ways. However I am biased, because it is my wedding My name is Kiera and I have been doing graphic design and social media for Bliss Bridal Magazine for about 8 months now. 2 and a half months after starting, I got married. Working for Bliss gave me some incredible inspiration! And I was so excited when Angela wanted to feature our wedding in the magazine.
It was the most perfect day ever! Tim and I went with a book theme for our wedding because we both love to read and he is an English teacher. Also, using books was an easy and inexpensive way to do a bunch of DIY crafts. Almost everything you see in our wedding was DIY. We even wrapped our own bouquets and made the boutonnieres. We also incorporated stuff from California, my home state, like wine from my hometown. And then little pieces of Texas/Austin like P.Terry’s (delicious!!!) and Shiner Beer. We had many other personal touches as well. For instance my Aunt (Franc Photographers) did the photography and I am so in love with the images! She is my favorite and it was so special to me that she could be there to photograph it. Also, we had a very close friend of ours do the cake and cupcakes. They were to die for! We just wanted our wedding day to be laid-back and fun for our guests and ourselves. I think that our wedding is the perfect example that just because you are on a budget, it doesn’t mean you can’t have the wedding of your dreams.
