Love From The Victorian Era: Christen & Dominic Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday Lovebirds!

Today, we’re ecstatic to share with you one of our all-time favorite weddings from this past year. The creation of this celebration was truly one of a kind and we’re so grateful for having the opportunity to work with this couple along with the honor of being featured on Stylemepretty. Without further ado, please enjoy Christen & Dominic’s charmingly elegant soirée.

Christen and Dominic’s lovely celebration took place at The Victorian and it was truly magical. We used a variety of vintage fancy touches and a mix of marsala prominent colored flowers, making the venue all the more timeless. The wedding came out looking like it was straight from the Victorian-era, overflowing with beauty and sophistication.


To top off the already classic vintage romance ambiance, we brought in gold flatware and chargers along with crystal glassware, slightly warm up-lights and candles galore to set the mood for the evening.

It was important for the couple that their wedding be deeply personal, reflecting their backgrounds and the love that they have for each other. They were intentional to bring in curated elements that were meaningful to them and their story as a couple, and it definitely gave us all the feels!

Since Christen and Dominic are both foodies, the food was absolutely delicious, leaving all the guests with a happy tummy at the end of the night! To make the evening even more special and personable, we brought in cannolis to give a nod to her Italian background. Dominic, as a chef, handmade jars of spices as party favors!

Our hearts are full for Christen and Dominic and we wish them nothing but the best on their journey of married life. Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your beautifully romantic special day!

Orange County Soiree – Tina & Steve Married!

Hi lovebirds!

It’s been awhile since we last shared one of our real weddings. Today, as Steve & Tina celebrate their one year anniversary, we couldn’t be more excited to share their super colorful, super memorable orange county soiree with you (woohoo)! Without further ado, let’s give it up for Mr & Mrs. Adams!

Tina and Steve are both fun loving  individuals with a large friend base. We worked with them to create a thoughtful, easy, intimate and vibrant wedding at the amazing Heritage Museum in Fullerton, California. Talk about a modern crafted fetê.


Since the venue is very nature-oriented, we elevated the space with vibrant splashes of color, including varying blue and green hues along with pops of bright pinks and gold. To further spice up the already enchanting setting, we utilized a variety of textures, incorporating a mix of muted cacti (a nod to Tina’s Arizona roots) with soft bright pink blooms to transform the venue from pretty to perfect!

The couple really wanted this wedding to be memorable for their guests, with a takeaway that everyone would treasure. Killing two birds with one stone, Tina’s bridesmaid, Chelsea, hand calligraphed personalized agate rock for each guest at their seat (fozy!). Sticking to the desert motif, the love birds also gifted their guests with cutie cacti treats for everyone to take home!

One detail that we loved about this wedding, was how Tina & Steve incorporated all the kiddos in their lives into the wedding. They had a army of cute as a button flower girls and page boys at the wedding.  

To end this oh-so-fun and beautiful celebration, the couple had their neighborhood ice cream truck driver pop by the wedding for dessert! The guests went crazy. It was the perfect cherry on top to the perfect wedding sundae.

Thank you to Tina and Steve for giving us the privilege to help create such fun wedding! Congratulations and Happy One Year!
