Bee and Sly Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovebirds!

Today, we’re excited to share Bee and Sly’s perfect wedding day. We loved working with Bee and Sly to create their relaxed elegance and romantic wedding. Bee and Sly are such a fun loving, eco-friendly couple who decided to approach their wedding from a sustainable point of view, which is where we came in to help! The celebration was definitely one for the books. So, without further ado, please enjoy these lovebirds’ dazzling soiree!

Nuzzled in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Calabasas, King Gillette Ranch set the perfect stage for Bee and Sly to tie the knot. King Gillette Ranch offers a beautifully rare view of California’s rich archeological, cultural, and historic resources. Bee and Sly loved the history and architecture of King Gillette Ranch which is why their hearts settled for this venue. The colors we chose for the event varied in deep and muted warm tones like yellow, pink, and wine with green touches. We enchanted the place with greenery to give the beautiful historic venue some life.

With all the neutral tones at the venue, we really wanted the flowers to sing! Enchanted Garden Floral Design created vibrant, beautiful floral pieces, which brought the historic venue to life. We just adore the mix of warm tones, greenery and matte white vessels that EG created for this wedding. Swoon.

With a gorgeous lakeside view, King Gillette was the ideal spot for the couple to exchange their vows. One of the things we loved about this wedding was the couple’s choice of guest book. They used a large map with pins to get travel advice from their guests. So fun! Another thing that made this wedding so fun, was that we veered away from the traditional wedding day structure by starting with cocktail hour! Guests were greeted by their host with a full bar and yummy bites. It served to break the tension and  by the time guests were invited down to the ceremony lawn, they made their way to the “I-do’s” with a smile on their face and a drink in their hand!

We wanted the guest dining tables to give off an easy, elegant, organic, lively vibe (quote a lot to ask of a table-scape). To bring this look to life, we draped soft, light patterned neutral linens over rectangular tables. They were then topped with greenery and gorgeous pink floral arrangements. To keep the whole look feeling clean and modern, we kept the place settings minimal. To complete the look, we incorporated colorful florals and dainty greenery throughout the centerpiece.

We gave the library some love by adding greenery and flowers to bring out the Earthly vibe and added lit candles to create a relaxed elegance feel. The lounge area was set up with mid-century modern pieces and was right next to the bar where guests could easily grab their drinks! Sly is Chinese so we wanted to bring his tradition into the wedding, which is why we added mandarins and red candies to the lounge area where guests could easily enjoy them.

The fun continued with a delicious cake and lots of dancing. These love birds get that not everyone loves cake, so they offered their guests a cereal bar that featured some of our favorites like Captain Crunch and Cheerios. Before the good times came to an end, guests were treated to the perfect midnight snack- pizza! Good times were had by all, especially the new Mr. & Mrs!
