Thank you to Elegant Wedding for featuring Alma and Joe’s DIY wedding at Whitmore Mansion! This is one of my very favorite weddings, so I’m thrilled it’s been featured.

Here’s the link where you can read Alma and Joe’s love story: A Quaint DIY Wedding


Alma and Joe’s vintage wedding at Whitmore Mansion in Ceres, California was fun and beautiful! There were some snags in the plan, such as the bride and groom breaking down on the freeway on the way to the reception, and a timeline that completely fell apart, but so what!? In the end, everything came together beautifully – delicious wood-fired pizza, gorgeous location, perfect wedding dress, fun bridal party, yummy desserts, and an awesome bride and groom dance.

On their first date, Joe knew Alma was “the one.” They are SO sweet and cute together, there is no doubt they are best friends who are in love. Thank you, Alma and Joe, for trusting us with such precious memories!
