From across the grounds at Cal Poly, Hayden spotted Channel for the first time.
She was pajama-clad, hair a little wild and unruly, and rushing to class (we’ve all been there, right?!)… But in his eyes, she was the most beautiful person he’d ever known.
He immediately knew this spunky girl had his heart, and he stayed in a steady and strong pursuit of hers.
On their first date, they decided to cook a meal together – and Hayden impressed Channel by cooking an exclusively vegetarian meal, just for her! It must have been delicious, because we are pretty sure he won her heart…
Built on a foundation of faith, Hayden and Channel’s relationship has been an example of purity, intentionality, and selflessness. They decided to save their very first kiss for their wedding, which made for a very sweet day of anticipation and excitement! We just adore those tender moments in their First Look, and that oh-so-pretty light streaming through the trees… It’s those little moments that FILL our hearts to brimming.
Wanting to share her natural lifestyle with their friends and family, Channel and Hayden focused on sustainability as much as possible. They offered an entirely vegetarian menu, with Kombucha on tap. Even their invitations were green – they were made of plantable seed-paper!
Their earth-friendly ceremony and reception took place at a private estate in Placerville, CA, where their vision came to life in the most beautiful way. It was a true labor of love, as the whole family pitched in and created custom benches for the guests. Every gorgeous inch of decoration was set up by the family members, and we are simply googly-eyed for their natural, eclectic vintage style!
Hayden and Channel (and your sweet family): your wedding day was everything! It was beautiful in aesthetic and in heart, full of sweet and sentimental emotions, and rooted in the celebration of what you’re entering – the covenant of marriage. Each of those precious, heartfelt toasts revealed more and more of who you are, and the support you have as you move into a bright future. So much love!
