Coleen Bauer of  Fairy Godmother Events says of the couples rustic California Wedding…


High school sweet hearts Victoria and Matthew chose to tie the knot at a stunning destination wedding at Democrat Hot Springs in front of friends and family.

This magical day was perfect with a soft breeze, sun sparkling through the trees, and the river gently flowing behind them.

Victoria opted for a soft classically romantic theme that with a bit of a vintage rustic twist.

Highlights included a first look of the Bride by both her Father and her husband to be, and first dance with both men too.

With blushing pinks and rich bold blues contrasting with the lush greenery surrounding them, it only complimented the venues natural beauty, and made for a dreamy Big Day nobody wanted to end.
