Intimate Boho California Wedding

Chase + Andrea’s Boho Wedding at Felicita Park

Going Boho

There’s a growing trend in boho (bohemian) weddings, and in my opinion it’s the perfect style for an intimate day. If you and your partner are free-spirited, with a love of nature, and truly unique styles, you might as well claim it: you’re boho baby! Chase and Andrea knew they wanted an intimate wedding, and Pinterest inspired them to go the boho route.

Mixing in Nature

Felicita Park in Escondido is a quiet place, perfect for an intimate wedding. Andrea and Chase had talked about this location for over 9 years, and always knew this would be the spot for their big day. When you choose a location so full of nature, you hardly have to add anything to create your boho vibe. A lot of bohemian weddings focus on organic elements like wood, plants, and fabrics very rooted in nature. So when thinking of add ons, keep those woodsy elements in mind. I think Andrea’s hairpiece had to be my favorite all-natural touch.

Keeping it Local

California has such rich flora, and I always appreciate when a couple uses what’s available in their region for decor. Chase and Andrea chose white and eucalyptus green for their colors, and really allowed those natural elements to pop. Their use of succulents were some of the more tasteful and clever I’ve seen in a small wedding. The guest were so happy to get to take some of the arrangements home as gifts! I love knowing that these succulents will last a long time. Most take-home florals wither in a day or two, so this was a nice boho touch.

About the Couple

 Chase and Andrea met at each of their first jobs out of high-school. They both worked at Albertsons where Chase worked the meat market, and Andrea was a florist. I think their origin story gives a whole new level to the phrase “walking down the aisle.” Ha! They were such a dream to shoot, and both had such joy sharing an intimate day with loved ones.

Boho Wedding Florals

Kelley DeHaan at A Flower Chick did a killer job bringing to life their bohemian style choice. I’ve worked with this vendor a lot, and it’s remarkable how many different styles they can do. I love how simple they were for this Temecula elopement, and how quirky and different they were for this big beach wedding. Now I’ll always recommend them when someone is looking for the use of succulents too!
