{San Juan Capistrano Wedding}

Erin and Ben’s San Juan Capistrano private estate wedding was such a beautiful event! Erin’s grandfather’s estate, perched on a hilltop avocado orchard overlooking Orange County and the ocean, was the perfect backdrop for their big day, there is something so special about getting married at home. Erin is one of the most sweet and thoughtful and HAPPIEST brides I have ever met! A pure joy to work with every step of the way! Thank you to Acres of Hope Photography for these gorgeous images that let us relive the day once more!

Pinterest my current obsession…my reason for insomnia…my place for inspiration.  I love it. I use it to get ideas for the house, baby’s first birthday party, what to wear and of course all things weddings!  I find it to be a fantastic tool when consulting with Brides, as their is always a picture of the very exact thing that I am looking to describe! I find that it really helps the non-visual person in explaining just what it is that they are looking for.  It is also great, because there is SO much beautiful creativity out there that it is constantly inspiring me to get better and think outside of the box in all aspects of my design.  Could it get any better?!

One word…YES!

And it just did a few months ago!  This fabulous new site called Lover.ly is like Pinterest but purely for Weddings, whether you are planning your wedding, dreaming about your wedding, you work in the wedding industry or just plain love weddings, it’s the place to be.  All of the fabulous images you see on the wedding blogs are compiled onto this lovely little site with links back to all of their original posts or credits listed for who did the work. You can save all of your most favorite images in “Bundles” and organize them however you wish and you can make it public or private, which is awesome…I have talked to so many brides who wouldn’t pin before Pinterest had the option to make things private because they didn’t want everyone to know what there wedding was going to look like!  Genius! I highly suggest you go check out what they’ve got going on…they add new images daily and they are all AHHH-mazing!

First off how incredibly fabulous are those Christian Louboutin shoes?

Yes, they are quite unique along with the rest of this DIY wedding that My Bride Story shared with us. This is one of those weddings where it actually rained, and a few changes were made, but overall everything turned out to be perfect. Filled with the most exquisite DIY details. That were all done by the bride. This is sure to be one of those weddings you will look back on for a few ideas.

{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!!
