Recently, I had the honor of being my maid of honor’s maid of honor. Hope that wasn’t too confusing right there. I met Monica when I was attending college in southern California and though we seemed like two entirely different people, we somehow became good friends through our boba loving, california hand roll happy hours and practicing Cantonese together.
This past November, she was married at Riley’s Farm in Oak Glen, California. This venue was absolutely gorgeous. I’m always a little envious of how many more options there are down south as opposed to the bay area. It was pouring rain the day before but God shone the sun on down to dry up the farm just in time for the wedding and it made for some beautiful hues and tones in the photos.
I would like to best describe Monica similar to Monica Bing of “Friends” during this wedding. This girl DIY-ed her little heart out and planned everything herslf to a tee. I had to admit, I didn’t think she could pull all the things she was doing off especially since 90% of bridal party was pregnant and I myself being pregnant and 7 hours away could not contribute much. In the end, it all came together so beautifully and I’m so excited to share some of the wedding details with you. The leaves were a beautiful yellow and the landscape was breathtaking. It was a beautiful fall wedding through and through.
I designed a lunchbox with their illustrations on it from their invitation onto a lunchbox and stuffed a bunch of goodies in there for a bridal emergency kit.
The bride made like a gazillion of these yarn ball things for the centerpieces. My contribution: 3
One of our favorite drinks is bubble milk tea so I was ecstatic for her bubble tea bar. All the guests got to take home a custom mason jar with
a scripture engraved on it and little wooden hang tag escort cards.
