A Scenic Outdoor Wedding in Carmel, CA by Sabine Scherer

When you choose a wedding location like Big Sur, California, you have to highlight the location at every turn. That’s just the rule when you’re talking about such a gorgeous locale. Elizabeth and Kristof clearly got the memo because that’s exactly what their wedding was all about. They exchanged vows in the middle of the Santa Lucia Preserve overlooking the mountains, incorporated lots of local flowers (including the California poppy) and donated to the Big Sur Land Trust in lieu of traditional wedding favors. Take a look at their gorgeous West Coast wedding!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
