Brittany Nelson (21) and Bailey Acee (20) wed in the garden of Riverview Evangelical Free Church in Bonsall, California, with a classic, romantic aesthetic that used soft blues, peaches and ivories. “We loved the idea of having a lot of greenery and pops of peach and blue flowers throughout our venue,” Brittany says. “Our main focus for the wedding was creating a rustic yet minimal feel.” After a garden ceremony under a rectangular wooden arch, Brittany and Bailey served their 200 guests delicious comfort food favorites, including meatballs and a tower of doughnut holes. Pavan Floral crafted simple, bright centerpieces made with pale blue and peach blossoms in gold vases. “Make sure you enjoy every moment,” Brittany says. “Do not let yourself get stressed out over the little details, because in the end it is about you and your spouse becoming one. Take time and think about how blessed you are to have found the one who completes you.” —Carolyn Meers

"I was in love with my dress as soon as I put it on," says Brittany, who chose a gown by Alfred Angelo. "I also had a small simple bow added to the back of my dress. I wore Lauren Conrad ballet  flats that were nude. For jewelry, I wore my rings and gold vine earrings."

"My favorite detail of the entire wedding would definitely be our grand arch, which was decorated in beautiful flowers," Brittany says. "Our family members even brought it outside to the reception so that we could take more pictures in front of it."
