With the New Year comes a new crop of newly engaged ladies, and if you were one of the lucky women to receive a marriage proposal (and score a gorgeous engagement ring!) over the holidays, then look no further for inspiration. When you're in the beginning stages of planning, there's no better place to gather ideas than seeing how other people put together their celebrations, and our collection of incredible real wedding videos is the perfect place to start. From glamorous weddings to low-key parties, we've featured every type of party imaginable. Each week we highlight one of our favorite new love stories, and this week we're taking you inside Kimberly and Russell's outdoor wedding in Ramona, California.
Cloudless Weddings joined the pair for an early fall celebration at Hidden Oaks, a private estate that was perfect for Kimberly and Russell's rustic bash. For other couple's that are looking for idea for an open-air party with a casual — yet totally beautiful! — vibe, then this is the wedding to see. To achieve the aesthetic they loved, the couple mixed laid back elements with more classic details for a look that feels timeless yet still somehow trendy. We love that the bride chose a traditional lace gown and paired it with a more contemporary, loose bouquet.

As for their décor, Kimberly and Russell chose vintage-inspired elements, like reclaimed wooden doors and table numbers, as well as hay bails and lush, low flowers. Another detail we loved? In lieu of an altar, the couple exchanged vows beneath a wreath of greenery that was suspended between two trees!
Plus, this couple's one-tiered white cake was something to remember. We love how they balanced the simple confection with a glam gold monogram.
