Moorpark Country Club Wedding Photos
Brittany and Robert were married this fall in an outdoor ceremony at Moorpark Country Club in Moorpark, CA. Brittany described their theme as “fall, with small touches of Halloween.” You had us at Halloween! Among white pumpkins, black and white anemones, and weeping willow trees, the couple exchanged their vows shortly after the bride’s “flower grandma” made her way down the aisle.

Our theme was rustic fall, with small touches of Halloween. One of my husband’s favorite holidays is Halloween, and that’s how we ended up with our wedding date! We chose white pumpkins in our florals, and handed out pumpkin tic-tac-toe and trick or treat goodie bags. Little nods like that gave the wedding those small touches of Halloween that we wanted without going overboard. We had 3 custom snapchat filters and our hashtag was #ANewPairofSchus.
What were your favorite or most memorable aspects of your wedding day?
Our first look was definitely the most memorable part of my day! I was so stressed and nervous until I saw my husband, and he was feeling the same way. Once I saw him, any nervousness and stress that I had gave way to excitement. After doing a first look and seeing each other before the ceremony, my husband still teared up when he saw me coming down the aisle.
My grandma was our flower grandma, and she stole the show! She was showering herself with the flower petals instead of tossing them at the ground, employing a sassy hand flick and all.
Is there anything you would have done differently?
I would have made sure I had room in the budget for a videographer! The photos are beautiful, and everything that I could have ever wanted, but a video would have completed everything. I also wouldn’t have had our sweetheart table on a raised platform. It felt kind of odd being at a different level than everyone else, and we felt disconnected from our guests, so we ended up staying away from our table for most of the night.
Do you have any advice for future brides?
Don’t make any rushed decisions, and take your time planning!
