Rustic Ivory and Succulent Wedding

The Villa in San Juan Capistrano is one of our favorite venues in Orange County. With all its natural beauty, there isn’t much anyone has to do to make a bride feel like she’s having her dream wedding!

Have you seen The Villa? There are so many elements that make it so gorgeous from the walkway entrance to the gorgeous offering candles in the chapel!

We used The Villa as inspiration in our centerpieces and the design we added to the venue; all natural and simple to create one cohesive look. We used a simple garland of torn muslin, burlap and ribbon as Sarisa + Ryan’s ceremony backdrop and smaller versions of the garland to accent chairs along the aisle. And for our tables and centerpieces, we used simple wooden boxes as vessels and filled them with hydrangea, lisianthus, brunia, astilbe, roses, succulents and gorgeous maidenhair fern. We also had some tables with simple candle pillars with accented moss and succulents.

The details Sarisa added to her day were unreal; so creative, cute and special. Each table setting included simple buttons with her guests’ name that gave the feeling of intimacy and care for each of their guests, The bride and groom had a subtle “direction and compass” theme with globes, maps, and simple quotes throughout the venue.

Now onto my favorite part, let’s check out the bride + groom’s wedding style! I love looking at pictures of our brides and grooms, especially Sarisa and Ryan; you can literally see their love in their eyes!

Shade Hotel Shoot

The Shade Hotel is such a cool and stylish luxury hotel in Manhattan Beach and it was the perfect place for this shoot. Aaron Young shot all the goodies you’re about to see and it all couldn’t have happened without the amazing Constance Curtis!

We had two floral concepts going on, and these upcoming pictures are the first concept.. A little bit of romance mixed with a lot of pretty in muted tones, all carefully designed with blush garden roses, lavender roses and ranunculus, ivory hydrangea and lisianthus, with touches of gold.

Love Neutrals…Love. Love. Love.

I love everything about our new collection of white ceramic vases…they are so simple and clean and beautiful.  I would have this in my house every day if I could, the classic blends of the white and ivory blooms with touches of super pale blush peonies…to die for.  LOVE! These little gems will forever be in my heart! Thank you Aaron Young Photography for another beautiful set of images!

{The Montage Wedding, Laguna Beach}

Today we have a little bit of fantastic-ness to share with you in this art-filled wedding that we collaborated on with Lindye Galloway Events and Mark Brooke Photographers.  Jen and Matt’s late summer wedding was held at The Montage in Laguna Beach, one of the most classic and elegant beach Venues our Southern California Coast has to offer.  The details here are awesome…Seriously, working with a fab group of artists on a wedding makes my day…no wait, makes my year! I love it when we get to collaborate with someone who has a vision and then let’s us run wild with our ideas…Jen did just THAT! She was such a fun and easygoing bride that had her own personal style and flare to her…Lindye and I took her personality and applied it to her wedding to make it unique, romantic, and artsy, with a touch of vintage modern elements.  Mark Brooke Photographers did a FANTASTIC job at capturing the feel of the day, I love the colors in the photos, the soft tones that they incorporated, seriously gorgeous. I love it…I love it all. So without further adieu…the beautiful evidence of this outrageously fun event!

How awesome is this vintage silverware Kraft Paper runner?

This was honestly one of Lindye’s shining moments as a designer, she created a HUGE wall of beautifully folded and painted music pages and suspended them behind the Band.  An amazing backdrop, so simple and beautiful…I’m sure it only took a few short hours to create…;)

Thank you to Lindye Galloway and Mark Brooke Photographers for helping to create and capture all of this gorgeousness for Jen and Matt…Congratulations!!

{Their Love Story}

Superbowl Sunday was beyond super for Brooke and Matthew when they met that day at a party in a restaurant. The pair spent two years traveling between San Diego and Riverside to keep up their winning relationship. A morning trip to Balboa Island became a photo opportunity for Brooke and Matthew when the attractive couple was approached to have their pictures taken on a sailing company’s boat for publicity for the business. A few rough waves brought Matthew to his knee…to ask for Brooke’s hand in marriage. Brooke had no idea until that moment that he had planned it all along!

{Details of Distinction}

The rustic garden setting of the bride’s family home emphasized the vintage elements found in old frames, a wrought iron birdcage and unique floral vessels.
