Enchanting Wine Country Wedding: Thuy-Van & Stewart Married!

It’s finally Wedding Wednesday, my friends!


There is no better place to be than wine country and Thuy-Van and Stewart’s wedding at an enchanted stonehouse ranch at Temecula Creek Inn proves it! We were also extremely excited when Style Me Pretty agreed with us and featured their wedding! Today, I have the pleasure to share more details of their special day. The couple wanted to host a celebration that reflected who they are as a couple, generally laid back with just a splash of fancy and a ton of fun and we can’t wait for you to get a peak into all the details…

We worked with them to create a look that was swoonfully romantic, naturally organic, and with aesthetic variety around every corner. The stone house at Temecula Creek Inn is surrounded by trees, so it gave us a lovely rustic base that we added layers of personal and design-forward details. We worked with a pallet of diluted hues paired with bold pops, incorporating wine, raspberry, Mauve, Blush, Deep Purple, Blackberry, Light Grey, Dark Grey, and touches of greyish blue.

We used a mix of textures, a variety of lines and tons of glow throughout the space. We paired farm wooden tables with neutral light and textured hemstitch runner and napkins to serve as a base for our florals. We used a lush garland with big ruffled blooms and candles woven throughout to create a full sense of full-on romantic enchantment on the guest dining tables.

With Thuy-Van’s background in dance and Stewart’s background in hockey, we had lots of fun sprinkling a few of their personal items around the space. The bride’s own sister did all the chalk art and the bride herself handmade the watercolor seating cards. Amongst the fancy dining and fab decor, the couple wanted their guests to experience a playful, light-hearted celebration. They offered a photobooth, lawn games and glow-ball (glow in the dark golf) on the on-site course.

Inside the stonehouse, we brought in comfortable, yet luxe, lounge furniture, board games galore and an array of bite-sized treats that would satisfy even the most potent of sweet tooths! Everyone danced, ate and played the night away and a legendary time was had by all!

Carondelet House Romance: Kat & Paul Married!

Good morning, friends! BeccaRillo_20151204_2010

Recently, we were pretty darn excited to see Kat & Paul’s candle-filled wedding featured on Style Me Pretty. Today, we have the pleasure of sharing more intimate moments of their fairy-tale wedding! Kat and Paul got married on December 4th at the Carondelet House in downtown Los Angeles surrounded by fifty of their nearest and dearest. Their goal from the beginning was to host an intimate dinner party style celebration with delicious cuisine, engaging entertainment and understated gorgeous decor, at which they would just happen to tie the knot.









Our aesthetic aim was create a sense of classic, comfortable elegance. We wanted guests to walk in and swoon a bit, but not feel as if the decor was contrived or over the top. Carondelet served as the perfect backdrop in bringing this vibe to life. Katherine loved the idea of having candles anywhere and everywhere to create a sense of glow and warmth throughout the space. We coupled all that candlelight with neutral whites, creams, and dark browns, diluted blush, and touches of gold.








The guests dined on long wooden rectangular tables, paired with a mixture of upholstered seating and wooden cross-back chairs. The floral designs were grounded on a light neutral colored soft and textured runner. We used arrangements that were roundish and somewhat symmetrical in shape, but relaxed in structure. Kat loves ruffled blooms in a mixture of sizes with bits of textured items and greenery peeking throughout.





A few of our favorite personal touches from the celebration were the items located at each place setting which served to reflect Kat & Paul’s personalities in just a lovely way – with a little bit of class and a little bit of silliness. For the class, each guest was gifted with an individual sized customized champagne bottle with his or her name on it. And for the silliness, along with the napkin treatment & menu peaking out of a beautiful napkin was a scratcher for each guest to try their luck to win big. We hung “for richer, for poorer” tags on each, along with pennies and guests played the lotto just before their family style feast. Kat & Paul don’t really love cake, so we brought in a cake and cookies truck instead and guests hopped around between the dancefloor, photobooth and ice cream truck throughout the party part of the evening.
