Holiday in SoCal Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot

Happy Thursday lovelies!

Today I’m happy to share with you our ‘Holiday in SoCal’ inspired wedding shoot that we produced and designed with Becca of Becca Rillo Photography! When Becca told me the idea of a Christmas wedding with a twist, I was immediately on board! For almost every wedding I help plan around Christmas, the couple always feels as if they have to pay homage to the holiday season through their decor and end up with saturated red and greens, super shiny silvers and golds and twinkle lights everywhere. Although we love all the holiday season has to offer, we wanted to inspire couples who are getting married around the holiday season to think outside the Christmas box and hint at the holiday without making your wedding look like Santa’s workshop. Exchanging reds for coral, peaches and pinks and greens for Tiffany blue, we went to work on creating our modernized winter wonderland wedding!

Becca and I worked together to create a world of snowflakes and branches as the backdrop for our shoot. We had our couple tie the knot in front of a wall of handmade snow flakes falling from one of the fabulous trees at the Ahmanson Ranch. Becca and her mom worked their fingers to the bone creating this whimsical look! Don’t you just love it?!?

One of my favorite ideas for this wedding was to have the couple give individualized wrapped presents to their guests: a twist on the traditional wedding favor! We were looking to create a toned-down mad-hatter kind of effect with a pile of immaculately wrapped colorful presents for their guests to find their name and take home.

Every time I look at our head table, I am wooed all over again. I love how the whole set-up perfectly combines a modern look while keeping the whole party posh and formal! The beauty of our table is what happens when three amazing rental companies, a fabulous floral designer, and two sassy stylists come together with a fantastic photographer there to capture the whole thing! I simply can’t get enough of this table!

I’m in love with each and every detail of this styled shoot. Just the site of both the sweets table and designer cocktails makes my mouth begin to salivate.  And how cute are our models!?!
