A Classic Outdoor Wedding at Randall House in Bakersfield, California
Katie Uhrich (20) and Dustyn LaBarbera (20) envisioned having an outdoor wedding with a simple style that reflected them as a couple. When Katie and Dustyn came across the Randall House in Bakersfield, California, the garden and patio space filled the bill. Instead of thoroughly planning out their color scheme, Katie and Dustyn let the decision naturally form into what would be a combination of oranges and pinks. Katie made sure to honor her late grandmother by incorporating her gold coin necklace into her elegant bridal bouquet arranged by the Garden District. Other than the elegant chandelier that hung from the wooden pergola, no additional decorations accented the ceremonial garden space. Their church pastor conducted the service filled with handwritten vows and a braiding ceremony, symbolic for their strong relationship with God woven into the marriage. The celebration continued at the outdoor reception, where guests left their thumbprints on a tree-inspired guest board for Katie and Dustyn to cherish. Friends and family members took home burlap bags filled with fertilizer and wildflower seeds, given out as favors. Of all the personal touches that made up this classic outdoor wedding, we loved Katie's white 1940s dress that belonged to a relative. Talk about keeping it in the family!
