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!

Style Unveiled | Paper Challenge

We were just recently a part of the most FAB group of vendors in this Paper Challenge that was put on by Paper Source and Style Unveiled.  Here is Heather, from Style Unveiled, “Sneek Peek”…Biggest Sneek peek EVER!! This will be a four part series, so stay tuned for more amazingness to come and the fill story behind the shoot from all of the amazing vendors!!

I know that I originally said that I would wait until Monday each week to unveil a new addition to the Style Unveiled Paper Styled Shoot Challenge features … but there is so much goodness to share, you would be waiting FOREVER if I only shared them one day out of each week … so as editor of Style Unveiled I have decided to break my own rules :)  I am also changing things a bit today because this is part I of probably 3 from the team that was led by Jill of Copper Willow Paper Studio.  There were so many images that came in from Christine Bentley Photography and I couldn’t edit any out!!  Haha!!  So, instead of forcing myself to ‘delete’ images that are perfectly lovely, I am going to make this a 3-parter.

Today’s post shows off a touch of each element of this shoot … just a touch :)  The plate is beyond … beyond anything I would have imagined and the paper this team was sent is the most brilliant shade of green, which makes the plate even more enjoyable and adds so much to the table setting (which you will see in part II).  And wait until you see the floral arrangements from this day!!!  Insanely gorgeous byThe Vine’s Leaf.  I was especially excited to see that they chose Serra Plaza as the venue, as Serra Plaza holds a special place in my heart, as I was one of the first wedding blogs to unveil it.

 

Write up by Jill Velez of Copper Willow Paper Studio:

I first saw the paper challenge greatness on Instagram.  Heather posted a photo of paper she had found and my curiosity was piqued.  What was Heather up to with paper?!  After I heard the details, I knew we were in!  This was such an original and creative concept.  Our original first meeting was with Mary Lallande of Jay’s Catering and Serra Plaza and Gianna SanFilippo of Chic Celebrations.  My first impression of the paper was that it had a Moroccan vibe and after that was layed on the table, the creative juices flew from there!  We wanted an oppulent setting filled with warmth and rich colors, dark woods, and golds. While I helped bring on the team, our main focus in the studio was paper of course!  Our main goal was to use the paper in unexpected ways and expand the design to textures and objects that echoed the paper design.  The first idea that came to mind was the plate treatment.  I ordered a few extra sheets of the paper and clear glass plates and went to work.  We knew the lounge area would also feature some mid century pieces so we paired the plates with some simple octogon shaped menus.  This octogon shape is also the foundation for the invitation design.  The paper is housed in a deep 2.5″ box covered with deep aqua dupione silk and the octogon invitation rested in a nest of gold brocaded fabric.  We finished it off with gold threading wrapped with gold and cream beads and a gold broach on the top of the box.  Even the reply card and hand drawn map is in a narrow octogon shape.  We believe personalization only creates a more signature event, so we positioned small calligraphed paper strips throughout the table and displays.  This calligraphy, in gold and aqua, was used throughout for all of the text on the menus, the invitation and signage.  Our final touch was on the bride herself.  As a studio, we are branching out to explore the range of paper through florals.  The delicate paper flower in the model’s hair was hand made.  The final result of every detail put together was beyond words.  We were so delighted to be a part of such a creative team and to be able to watch everyone work that day.  The talent in the wedding industry is so deep and diverse.  It was truly a pleasure to watch the original vision come to life!
