Trevor and Tori met in 2012 while attending the same church. Many of their friends instinctively knew that they would be a good match and continually tried to set them up. After a several failed attempts, they gave in to their friends’ pushing prodding. Even then they thought going on a date would be primarily a fun night out and completely social. To their surprise, they found themselves inseparable after just one date.
They were engaged in October of 2013 and had only 3 months to plan their wedding!
“Trevor took me to a John Mayer concert at the Hollywood Bowl. All night I kept having this feeling that he was going to propose. By the time the concert was over, my brain was fried from thinking he was or wasn’t going to propose. On the way home, he took me to a vantage point overlooking Orange County where a picture of us, candles, succulent flowers, and some sparkling cider was set up. He got down on one knee and BAM!”
On January 3rd of 2014 this sweet couple was married in the LDS Temple in Newport. Following the private and quiet ceremony, they proceeded to the beautiful venue of Hillcrest Terrace of Fullerton. Their gorgeous bohemian chic wedding was full of laughs,elegance, and pure joy.
The Wedding Planning
The biggest concern for Victoria and Trevor was the guest list because their reception venue only allowed for 145 guests. Since they both have a large family, this meant limited room for friends and other important people in their lives.
For her wedding decorations and accessories, they mainly shopped at Hobby Lobby and did DIY projects. For example, for their table center pieces, they collected glass bottles, spray painted them gold, and then put baby breath in them. Projects like this make decorating easy and cheap if your are on a tighter budget.
The Wedding Look
Victoria wore a beautiful floor length wedding gown dripping with lace. Her quarter length sleeves adds simple sophistication. Her favorite wedding accessory and the one piece that established her chosen bohemian bride look was her flower crown. When asked about it she said, “I personally think veils mess up your hair, get caught in the wind, and are expensive for a piece of fabric. I liked the flower crown look because it is so unique and easy to wear for a day. It established the bohemian, elegant but easy-going vibe I was looking for.” She was most certainly right and her wedding day look turned out flawless.

When getting ready on her wedding day, Victoria chose to get ready with only her mom. She said that since she was going to be getting married in a sacred and religious place in just hours, she wanted to respect that and not make a big party of getting ready. This is a great alternative to the festive rush of getting ready with your bridesmaids and surely provide some sweet moments between mother and daughter.
They had a large bridal party and had them in gold and grey. For their color scheme they chose to go with neutrals because it was an easy way to keep things sophisticated. They added hints of peach and greens in their flowers (Done by Allie at Floweralliestyle.com) -basically a very soft color pop! This worked great with the mismatch bridesmaid dresses and the groomsmen’s suit pants. Mismatch bridal parties is a huge trend now, but can be tricky with very specific color choices, bold colors, and small bridal parties.
To go with their fun personalities and their love for In-N-Out they actually had a In-N-Out food truck as the caterer of their wedding (To hire a food truck for your wedding click here)! This was a big hit with the wedding guests and became a special highlight of their wedding.
For activities at their reception they had dancing and even a (volunteer) magician to entertain the kids! They had wanted to have a fire pit with s’mores, but their venue wouldn’t allow it. It is always important to keep in mind what you want in comparison to what your venue will allow.
They also kept the wedding traditions of their first dance, wedding toasts, cutting the cake, and the send off. Cutting the cake, of course, turned playful with Victoria and Trevor somehow missing each other’s mouths.
They ended the night with a bubbly send off (Victoria had wanted sparklers, but again the venue could’t allow it due to regulations) and road off on Trevor’s motorcycle/scooter happily as husband and wife.
Congratulations to Victoria and Trevor! We hope your first year of marriage is as beautiful as your wedding day. Thank you for sharing!
