DIY Country Style Summer Wedding with the sweetest giving away

Rachel and Jonathan's beautiful summer wedding ceremony was held at her father's church in Newbury Park, CA. Rachel's dad wore a red baseball cap which was given to him at Rachel's birth. It was inscribed with "I belong to the Rachel Elizabeth Ferguson Fan Club." When Rachel's father walked her down the aisle, he passed the cap to the groom when he gave away her hand in marriage. Photographs are by Karen Ard Photography.

Before heading to the barn reception, the couple and their wedding party kicked up their cowboy boots at the adjoining field for some great photos.

The bride's personal DIY touches set the rustic tones for this country-style wedding that included everything from burlap on the groom's boutonniere to the luggage tag escort cards.
