A stunning backyard wedding in California….
Backyard Wedding California
Christina and Peter first met at work. They soon found that they shared many loves – hiking through the great outdoors, animals and Chinese food to name a few! Christina chose to wear the lace Madagascar gown from our Emanuella collection, which she paired with a bespoke tulle and lace overskirt that we made especially for her. Their wedding was an intimate affair held in the bride’s backyard in California. Here Christina answered a few questions about her day for us….
Peter Trends Bridal: How did you meet your husband?
Christina: At work. We go to hiking group together. I was surprised to find out he loves Chinese food and we decided to go out to eat and started dating.
Peter Trends Bridal: How did your partner propose to you?
Christina: He proposed to me in front of our neighbor’s sheep (Poco) because we visit the sheep really often [and share a love of animals].
