I love that Yeri + Adam took something that’s a bit played out in the blog world (bunting) and made it fresh and modern, and not at all rustic or vintage, by taking it inside and punching it up with a bright color palette of coral and turquoise. And that cake! Like so many elements in their wedding, it was handmade by a good friend of the couple. The bride took care of the remaining details (no surprise, then, that she has an adorable blog and design business!) Yvonne Wong was on hand to capture all of the details at Eva Restaurant, and she stayed on past the party for a portrait session with the happy couple. Beautifully done, everyone!

And here’s the couple’s sweet portrait session. Yvonne did such a beautiful job!

Describe your wedding cake: My good friend Katie baked the cake to resemble a circus tent. I loved that she carried over the bunting decoration into the cake, which was lemon-flavored with raspberry filling.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I had to reign myself in because I kept thinking of new ideas. This wedding was the epitome of DIY, from the invitations (screen printed by hand) to the hand-held celebration flags. Each new idea created much more work for me.
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? When Adam and I spontaneously did step aerobics on the dance floor. Yes, we’re dorks!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? Yes, we both wrote our own vows. My favorite part was when Adam said that he loves me because I give him an excuse to watch the Real Housewives.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? For now we’re focusing on school and our careers. We look forward to starting a family later and living a happy, simple life.

Ooo boy do we have a fun wedding for you today — DIY brides, delight! The wedding invitation designer-bride screen printed the couple’s invitations herself and decked Eva Restaurant with colorful bunting and a cheerful banner stretching across the ceremony space. Yeri, the bride, made it easy for guests to wave their well-wishes with little flags and dab their tears of joy with individually packaged handkerchiefs. The festive air didn’t stop at paper, however. Yeri and her bridesmaid both wore short and fun David’s Bridal dresses, while Yeri opted for a simple dress and veil and completed the look with adorable polka-dotted coral pumps from J. Crew. The bride and her sister arranged all the flowers themselves with the help of her in-laws, who bought dozens of assorted flowers from their local farmer’s market. Special thanks to Yvonne Wong Photography who shared this DIY wedding with us!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met while attending the University of Washington in Seattle. We found out later that we used to attend the same elementary school in Los Angeles!
Describe the proposal. Adam was in cahoots with my sister to pick out the perfect ring. She also made a custom box / ornament for Adam to hang on our tree. I was on my way home from work and was going to pick Adam up to go eat. He kept urging me to come into the apartment. When I went inside, he showed me the ornament and proposed!
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Light-hearted, humorous, and joyful.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The “Tears of Joy” bundles.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: It was a strapless, short dress. Very simple.
Describe your wedding flowers: My in-laws were kind enough to go to the farmer’s market and buy a large amount of roses and other assorted flowers. My sister and I made our bouquets and the in-laws helped to make the table arrangements.
