{Metallic Succulents}

Hanna + Randy wanted a wedding that was upbeat yet comfortable, and infused multiple colors and a plethora of circle patterns that could bring some fun, funk, and style! Love it. :) They also wanted great food and had to incorporate their love for coffee with a coffee bar and signature drinks. They selected the The Casino San Clemente as their venue and the outdoor space was a perfect setting for their lovely ceremony. Lindye Galloway Events helped Hanna + Randy create a day that was uniquely them while Emily Blake Photography captured it all on film. Congrats to Hanna + Randy!

{L’Auberge Wedding}

Kim and Garrett are such an inspirational couple to me.  Garrett is one of the many amazing soldiers that serves for our Country and Kim is one of the amazingly strong wives that supports him.  Every time that I met with Kim I was updated with her wedding planning of course as well as all of the things that she was doing to create a life for her and her husband to be while he was over seas…This woman worked her butt off at multiple jobs, in the gym late night, house hunting AND moving! AS WELL as planning a beautiful wedding and honeymoon completely on her own! They inspire me!  I think it takes an extra strong connection, faith and trust to be able to endure what they endure.  Garrett, Thank you for everything that you do for our Country and Kim, Thank you for keeping him strong and loved!

Now you can enjoy some of their beautiful wedding photos even more with that little slice of background information.  Kim was trying to create a vintage, beachy and chic feel.  We used tons of warm ivories, pale taupes, natural elements like driftwood, balsa wood flowers and manzanita branches.  They were married at the beautiful L’Auberge Resort in Del Mar, Ca…a truly breathtaking view! For the Bridesmaids, Kim gifted hand made clutch purses made by the super talented Ally Lossness of Moda Viajando Custom Bags, and we accented them with mini Bridesmaid’s Bouquets made of beachy orchids and balsa wood flowers.  I LOVE the idea of clutches either in lieu of bouquets or in addition to them…you can mismatch them or totally coordinate them and I think that they are such an awesome and useful bridesmaid gift.  Such a beautiful wedding, Congrats Kim and Garrett!

{Spanish Inspired Wedding}

So I have not posted in SOOO long and I am SOOO Sorry!  Life has been super hectic with lots of weddings, brides and a super fast crawling baby! But I am back on the blog and am working super hard at gathering all of the fabulous wedding photos from the amazing events that I have been so busy making happen since this past spring.  I am going to start with one of my personal favorites as well as some friends of mine.  Dodger and Clarissa make a phenomenal couple and you can feel it by just looking at their wedding photos.  Clarissa made a beautiful spanish bride and Dodger was her all american sweetheart.  The details that they incorporated were one of a kind and something that I truly have never seen done at The Casa Romantica before! Their amazing and super talented Paper People {Birds and Planes Letterpress}  actually took the medallions from the spanish tiles and created Save The Dates, Invitations and Menu Cards out of them, they also used the design on the cake! Simply stunning and so darn creative.  We carried the spanish theme through to the flowers, using brick reds, oranges, tons of green textures and succulents, as well as pomegranates and grapefruits.  Take a look and be inspired!!

Succulents, Cedum, Rasberries! Scabiosa and Monkey Tail…The Textures!!

Loving the Pomegranates with the bright reds and oranges…yum.
