Lisa and Derren didn’t have a traditional reception, there was no dancing, no garter toss and no bouquet toss. They did however have a few elements that made their reception uniquely theirs!

The post ceremony snapshots of Lisa and Derren are so much fun. I’m particularly enamored by the use of silhouettes in their wedding shots!

Lisa and Derren

The first wedding in our week of Wedding Wednesdays is of Lisa and Derren (a musician, hear his work here)!

This wedding has such a cute polka dot, silhouette vintage look to it with a lot of fun twists!

Lisa created so many of the details of the wedding herself – including the handmade bouquets using buttons which created polka dots! Lisa also made centrepieces and signs to decorate the wedding.

Lisa and Derren held their wedding at Point Loma Nazarene in California and the celebration was planned by Carter & Cook Event Co.

Today’s photographs are by Megan and Micah of Micah Dahlberg Photography.

Instead of a sand ceremony, Lisa and Derren planted a tree together, they poured dirt over the tree and their parents watered it. It symbolised the way their parents have been an influence in teaching and encouraging their love.
