Backyard Santa Cruz Wedding

There are always huge debates about getting professionally done photography of the wedding day or not. Some couples still believe that it is more than enough, that mostly all the guests have their cameras with them and that at least couple of photos will workout well. Then there are those couples who believe, that you can't really trust that the photos made by guests will really work out well. I am one of those who thinks professionally photographed wedding is the best way to go if you want beautiful memories for yourself and your future kids. If the money is biggest of the concerns, then cut from something else.. Just think what a disappoint would it be if non of the guests photos are good ?

I thought i would start showing some of the weddings, that in some way touch my heart or just are unique and inspiring looking. I will start with the amazing wedding kept in Santa Cruz. This was a beautiful outside wedding with lots of beautiful details and soft colours. Photos made by Danielle Gillet Photography are so peaceful, full of love and beautiful nature. I hope you will enjoy looking at this stunning photos as much as i did!

".... thank you for giving me the wedding of my dreams...."

Invitations seems to picture the exact place where the wedding was kept. Looks like the pictures were painted with the watercolours. Same palette of colours can be seen in the bridesmaids dresses, bouquets and decorations. Stunning way to show the quests what to expect from upcoming wedding.


The sills of straw with white fabric as a cover gave the rustic feeling to the aisle.

Different shades of pink roses in the light blue glass canisters gave festive look to the aisle.

The board with the namecards.

Using moss for decorating ? Just remember that you can't pick the moss without the permission of the landowner ( at least here in Finland ).

How about fresh flowers and cake topper looking like your pet?

If the weather is stunning, then there is no better place to celebrate wedding than outside... Unfortunately here in Finland with the good weather we get mosquitoes as well :)

You can't go wrong with colourful flower arrangements

Unique touch with glass plates in light green colour

Celebrate your marriage with your own tree which which will grow each year bigger and stronger like your own marriage.
