WATCH: See One Couple's Beautiful Summer Wedding in California

Real Weddings

With the beginning of a busy summer wedding season inching ever closer, it's time to start planning the final details of your big day. As you prep for a weekend filled with wedding planning, we're bringing you a dose of bridal inspiration, perfect to perk up your Friday afternoon. Each week we're spotlighting one of our favorite new love stories from our brand-new real wedding video series, and now we're giving you a look at Chris and Laura's sunny, summer wedding in Pala, California!

This couple asked Enjet Media to join them on their big day at the Condor's Nest Ranch on July 12, 2014 for a day filled with love, bright blooms, and lots of fun. Set to the tune of "I Will Wait" by Mumford and Sons, join this sweet couple as they tie the knot on a perfect California afternoon. The pair planned a day that was part rustic, part elegant, and part totally laid back, resulting in an event that breathed both of the couple and of summer.

The details of their outdoor ceremony and reception will certainly inspire any couple. We can't get enough of their magenta floral ceremony arch or the waving white lanterns that were suspended over their reception space. Take note of their color palette, too! Chris and Laura turned a sometimes overly-feminine palette of pink and white into a crisp and cool look by balancing their space with natural detail. We love their poolside dance floor and what looks like one tasty (and refreshing!) signature cocktail.

While we're all about the styling of their big day, what really sells us on this wedding is the sheer love the couple have for each other. Listen closely as Laura calls Chris "her husband" — even if you didn't see the bride's ear-to-ear grin, you would hear the smile in her voice. Plus, you'll love watching their unmistakable joy as they're pronounced husband and wife, and both throw their hands in the air in celebration.
