Black Tie Botanical Whimsical Soiree: Marisa & Jason Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today, we are so excited to share with you one of our favorite weddings of 2016. From the moment I met Marisa & Jason, I fell in love with their sweet disposition and chill, yet excitable demeanor. We are grateful to have been able to plan & design with these love-birds. Together, we were able to create an event that really resembled their personalities. It was a fab time, and looked drop-dead gorgeous! Their wedding was unique in it’s aesthetic and design combining formal, whimsical, and urban touches all around. It was one of those times when we mixed together an overwhelming amount of visuals, but it totally worked!

Marisa & Jason’s wedding was a well styled celebration of love and family. To get a general idea of their style and design, you have to understand some context of the couple. Marisa and Jason both work in the music biz and also happen to have the cutest little girl that you have ever seen named Olive that served as their flower girl.

The couple fell in love with Millwick, a venue with funky furniture in the middle of the arts district in downtown, because it gave them the perfect template to bring their creative, artistic vision to life.

It was important for the couple that all their guests have a great time and that the aesthetics were very detailed. We worked with them to craft a romantic soiree that was super fun, gorgeous and meaningful. As a venue, Millwick already has quite a bit going on, but the couple wanted to elevate the space to bring it from a laid back backdrop to the perfect setting for a formal fete. To set the stage, we started by hanging both greenery and bistro lights from the ceiling (lush + enchantment = swoon).

We made it detailed, but kept it simple and clean. We used individual champagne bottles as both the party favor and place card. We brought in cool mirror art, vintage glassware, specialty flatware, and lots of fun fab touches and more to bring the look from pretty to perfect!

We even put together a bit of a speakeasy with a secret tequila tasting and cigar bar, and brought in an old car to take fun photos.

Really fun meets really beautiful in this family-styled feast, complimented by one heck-of a Maids-of-Honor speech set to the ever so familiar “Fresh Prince of BelAir” rap.

The food was to die for and the look was divine. Everyone danced the night away and had an amazing night! Guests called it the best wedding ever (and we’ll take it!). We are also very excited to see this wedding featured in California Weddings Day’s upcoming magazine. Can’t wait!

Lovestruck at the Lombardi House: Ginny & Jaimie Married!

Happy Thursday!

We are happy to present a wedding that you will never forget. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful event and have the honor of being featured on Ruffled. Without further ado, let’s give it up for Ginny & Jaimie!

Ginny & Jaimie’s wedding was a truly special celebration. It was important for the couple to incorporate aspects from their hometowns and backgrounds to bring together their families from various parts of the country. Once they visited the Lombardi House in Hollywood, Ginny & Jamie knew it was the perfect venue for them.

We were looking to infuse and combine mid-west, desert and coastal touches into the wedding aesthetic. From the moment the love-birds saw the barn, mixing something so quintessential Americana, smack in the middle of the excitement of Hollywood, the gals were in love.

We worked to craft a vibrant, elevated, comfortable affair, mixing cool blue and green tones with pops of warm hues.

The couple wanted their wedding to feel like one big dinner party for their nearest and dearest. The guests dinned family style at feasting tables under an enchanting blanket of bistro lights.

We paired textured light linens with wooden vineyard chairs to evoke both the modern and rustic feels! We lined the tables with a mixture of soft, open blooms with potted cacti. One of my personal favorite details was the silver patterned china and textured glassware at each place setting (foxy, foxy, foxy!).

One of the most memorable moments of the night was when the couple used Jaimie’s father’s military sword to cut the cake.

Throughout the night, the food, sweets and drinks never stopped flowing and the guests danced the night away. Ginny and Jaimie’s wedding is definitely one for the books!
