Natural Springtime Wedding at The Villa

With Springtime coming up more quickly than we even realize, we thought we’d start this year off with one of our favorite weddings from last year! We’ve already mentioned before how much we love working at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano and we’ll say it again; WE LOVE IT! It is such an inspiring venue for a wedding and we always love being able to play off of it’s natural beauty in creating the florals for this venue. Katie + Chris’ Wedding is a prime example of how we accented the venue’s beauty with the natural look of ivory blooms, an array of natural greens, and the simplicity of succulents.

Summery California Backyard Wedding

We’ve been featured on The Wedding Chicks!!

We absolutely loved designing the florals for this bright, citrus colored, summery back yard wedding! Not only was it a beautiful California day, the colors, flowers, and decor were just so perfectly the epitome of California that if we didn’t already live in California, we’d totally be jealous of anyone who does! And not to mention, we got to work with LVL Events; it’s always amazing, we love them! The bride was able to hold her ceremony and reception at her aunt’s house in Beverly Hills and we were beyond thrilled when we arrived to set up; the views of Los Angeles were amazing from where we were! Thank you, Kristen and Tristan for allowing us to be a part of your big day!

From the Bride on the Wedding Chicks Feature:
Our vision was a classic, fun California Summer Beverly Hills wedding. I wanted to do something bright, playful, with a mix of rustic and modern touches. I wanted it to seem a bit mid-century modern Beverly Hills, too. I wanted people to feel immediately comfortable and happy when looking at the decor. My husband and I had been together for such a long time that all of our guests essentially knew one another, so I wanted to promote mingling whenever I could. That’s how we designed the general flow of the ceremony and feel.

The colors were like nothing I’ve ever really seen and it gave off this energy that reminded me of Miami/Los Angeles in the summer. With the help of all my incredible vendors, I was able to incorporate what I thought were disjunctive ideas into a cohesive vision that complemented not only the space, but my husband and me, us as a couple.

And for future brides, we think Kristen summed this up perfectly: 

In terms of things I would have done different, there really aren’t many. I’m sure many brides say this but I would have slowed the day down. I would have taken notice of all the little things I spent so much time putting together, building, staining, designing, etc. I would have appreciated the guest table more, I would have eaten every appetizer we put out, I would have looked closer at all the flowers on the tables, I would have taken a close look at the cake. I felt like the day was such a whirl that I would have liked to have a snap shot of all these different little things in my mind!

Agoura Hills Wedding Featured on Ruffled Blog

We were featured! Kevin and Melissa’s big day was at the amazing Trufino Creek Vineyard in Agoura Hills. We were beyond amazed by its beauty when we first saw the venue. The couple wanted their main colors to be burnt orange and mint and we added a bit of peach and ivory to soften the look. We used mostly orange roses, calla lilies and ranunculus and softened the orange with peach Juliet roses, ivory hydrangea, and pretty white lilac. To bring in the mint, we used viburnum and olive branches among other mixed greenery.

From the stylist, Melissa of Styling Starts HereAs Hall & Oates’ “You Make My Dreams Come True” closed the ceremony, we knew this would be a fun celebration for Melissa, Kevin and their 110 guests. The couple that met online a few years back spared no creative expense when designing their dream wedding. Outdoor tenting, romantic setting, customized chalkboard art signage, Edison bulb chandelier above the dance floor, gastropub food for cocktail hour, bistro lighting, overload of candles, vintage mirror trays, a playful dessert station, wine barrels galore, the list goes on! We also had wonderful time with the bride’s parents surprising the couple with event details like an aerial signage plane that flew over the venue after the ceremony, a video montage during the reception and the father/daughter dance sung by American Idol’s, Matt Rogers.
