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.

We then swapped out the arrangements with our second concept.. Something different. Still pretty, still romantic, but a lot more bold!

What a FUN wedding this one was with the incredibly talented wedding designer, Lindye Galloway!! The wedding was actually on Cinco De Mayo so there was a lot of Mexican Infused design throughout the wedding.  Lindye created a custom tile runner for the aisle that was decopaged with Papel Picado…amaze.  She also created the custom backdrop fit with Papel Picado Chandeliers and streaming ribbons.  We brought everything to life with TONS of coral peonies, peach garden roses and the sweetest little sweet peas, all within or on bright white vessels for a bright and modern feel.  The Bride’s Bouquet was the most simple and gorgeous mix of white peonies and astilbe, while the Bridesmaids has bouquets of coral peonies, roses, sweet peas and astilbe. Enjoy!

{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!

My personal favorite blooms and color scheme of the year…Cafe Au’Lait Dahlias, peach garden roses, maidenhair ferns and dusty miller…love the soft palette. All held in a perfectly stained wood box to coordinate beautifully with the Market Table Runners.

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!!
