There is something so special about a Central Coast wedding – especially if it’s outdoors! So much beauty to look at in a variety of textures & elements: panoramic views of rolling hills, sandy shorelines, mixed in with cityscapes, & rugged mountains. So you can see why I was excited to receive Kevin and Cori’s rustic chic mountain wedding in my inbox. Described by the bride as a “rustic, DIY love fest on top of a mountain”, this rugged mountain wedding, beautifully captured by David Pascolla Photography, is Central Coast rustic perfection.
Kevin and Cori’s Story:
Kevin and Cori have known each other since they were 14 years old! They were neighbors, went to school together, and Cori said that while they never dated in high school, she sure had a big crush on him! When she ran into Kevin at a Fourth of July party in 2007, she didn’t let him out of her sight and it was the first time she ever made a move on a guy! They spent the entire summer together, but when fall rolled around, he moved back to San Luis Obispo, CA and neither of them really thought that their relationship would be anything serious. The move wasn’t enough to keep them apart however, and they decided to keep things going long distance for a while. After what Cori refers to as “six months of shenanigans”, she decided to move to be close to him! It ended up to be the best decision she ever made, and since then, they have spent eight wonderful years on the Central Coast together.
Cori said that her wedding was a dream come true, a “rustic, DIY love fest on top of a mountain.” They got married at a privately owned venue, a barn on a hill in Prefumo Canyon with panoramic views of the city. From the ceremony site you could see Morro Rock and the Pismo dunes, with the rolling hills of San Luis right behind them. It was a gorgeous location. Almost all of their vendors were close friends, so everything was personalized and customized for the couple, making the day extra special. Friends and family supported them through the whole planning process and helped to make their day absolutely perfect. She said it was the most special and glorious day that she could ever imagine!
Cori’s Favorite DIY in her own words:
Succulent centerpieces were a LIFE SAVER! We ordered the boxes from Etsy and Kevin put them together with succulents from our garden and some extras were got from the swap meet. We saved THOUSANDS!
