Palm Springs Destination Wedding

Elisa and Komron held a destination wedding in Palm Desert, California, that can only be described as glamorous, elegant and sparkly! Wedding planner Kelley Lee Gin mixed modern and feminine style to make the day really shine. On keeping with her vision, florist The Vines Leaf used gold and silver vessels to hold fluffy flowers, including antique hydrangeas, garden roses, ranunculus and anemones. The couple also set up a cigar and scotch lounge outside for the men! But our favorite part about this gorgeous wedding is that the couple included their dogs, Moose and Bailey, in the wedding ceremony—and brought out the most adorable puppies during cocktail hour for guests to play with! Ashley Rose Photography snapped pictures of all the snuggle-worthy pups—and all the perfect details—for us to enjoy!Elegant Black Wedding Party Outfits 1

Rancho Las Lomas New Year’s Eve Wedding

Where do I even begin?! WOW! This was definitely a wedding for the books, for so many reasons.  Monika and Steve were one of the couples that you look at and you can honestly and truly feel the love that is shared between them.  Monika has such a warm and loving spirit to her and you can feel that she has a desire to live life to it’s absolute fullest, love as much as she possibly can and most of all you can tell that she has a desire to never stop growing in herself or her relationships.  Throughout the process of the wedding planning, we never talked about these things, but you just knew they were there, it was a feeling of sincerity and that she had such a deep and loving heart.  When she would see you, she would Thank You and tell you how happy she was that you were there in this experience with her, and you could TELL she truly truly meant it because she followed it up with the warmest hug! Monika has truly inspired me as a person and I am grateful for that. Congratulations to Monika and Steve, you have a BEAUTIFUL life ahead of you!

The boutonnieres were made of wintery white ranunculus and Brunia Berries wrapped in a textured ivory ribbon with gray velvet accents.

How gorgeous is this custom ribbon that Monika had made?! Each Bridesmaid had a different line from 1 Corinthians that we hand tied around their bouquets of white anemones, garden roses, ranunculus and of course that beautiful and wintery dusty miller.

Monika’s Bouquet was made of a feminine and wintery mix of garden roses, ranunculus, white anemones, brunia berries, and dusty miller that we hand tied in a beautifully pleated ribbon wrap and her custom linen ribbon that read “I Z Wed 12.31.12”  The Z is for her Husbands last name Zeldin…so sweet!!

The Ceremony was only lit by Bistro lights and candlelit which made for the warmest kind of light.  It was gorgeous. Stunning.  In the center of the U-shaped Ceremony was the softly lit Chuppah that was very simple decorated with branches, hanging candles and simple blooms.  This just might be one of my favorites!

The centerpieces were a wonderfully eclectic mix of vintage metals, mercury glass, and vintage crystal vessels.  Some were filled with wintery white blooms with deep purple accents and some were filled with hand dipped gold dusted fruits…AMAZE! In between the arrangements there were pockets of driftwood with tufts of wintery white flowers and vintage gold votives nestled in.

Behind the Bride and the Groom, Lindsay from LVL Weddings and Events placed the Found Vintage mantle piece that we adorned with driftwood arrangements and candlelight.

This New Years Eve Wedding was just plain AMAZING! We are so grateful to have been a part of all of it and what a way to cap off a wonderful year for our business! May this set the tone for the year to come!  Congratulations to Steve and Monika and a HUGE Thank you to the most amazing planner Lindsay Longacre of LVL Events and Christine Bentley who got these images out SUPER fast and all of the other awesome vendors who made this event what it was.  Happy New Year Everyone!

Hotel Del Coronado Wedding

Constance Curtis and I had a blast pulling the details together for this wedding!  Erika was a super classic and timeless kind of a bride.  Her family has a tradition of staying at the Hotel Del Coronado every summer so it was an obvious place for her to marry her Prince Charming.  We wanted a very regal and classic feel with a bright and beachy lightness to it, so we chose the pale yellows with whites and greens with a tiny pop of blue.

 Erika’s wedding was in the perfect time of the year to get the coveted yellow peonies in the mix…pure amazingness.

For the ceremony, we took the Gazebo at the Hotel Del Coronado and draped the front of it in a beautiful raw silk fabric to soften (and hide!) the existing lattice work that was behind it.  We bordered it with two think bands and tiebacks of hydrangea, dahlias and fluffy green viburnum.

For the reception we used a vintage crystal and gold candelabra that perfectly fit the feel of the Grand Ballroom…totally old world charm! We went with all tall centerpieces to fill the large room and high ceilings.  The head table was filled with an eclectic mix of vintage crystal vases with peonies, garden roses ranunculus and hydrangea (not pictured here).

 Loving these photos from Oz Visuals, Thank You!

I had to repost some of my absolute favorite pictures.  These were from a photo shoot that we did at The Historic Casino in San Clemente.  It is one of my very favorite new venues.  It is filled with so much old San Clemente charm but in a new and modern way.  The gardens are complete with a minimalistic succulent landscape, white stucco walls and a stunning view of the ocean just a block away…you have to check it out!! Also, another one of my very favorite vendors is in this shoot…Found Vintage Rentals…all of the furniture is one of a kind, restored vintage pieces that she rents out for weddings, parties, showers etc…Check them both out!!
