Love Found in Winter Wonderland: Karla & Lloyd Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovebirds!

Today, we’re ecstatic to share with you our one last weddings from 2017. It was such an honor working with Karla and Lloyd to put together this stunning and glam celebration last winter, so without further ado, please enjoy these lovebirds’ romantic soiree!

Karla and Lloyd’s lovely celebration took place at the Fig House. The couple wanted their ceremony to take place at night with a super wintery, romantic vibe so we kicked off their wedding with the cocktail hour and ended with an enchanting family-style dinner. While the tradition was defied, the whole night was even the more beautiful and memorable.

For their ceremony, we hung up art deco lighting fixtures as the anchor for the ceremony (did someone say statement piece?) and candles galore down their aisle to create a ceremony that was simply dripping with romantic glow. The turnout was truly breathtaking; the epitome of a winter wonderland which gave us all the feels!

For their reception, we incorporated geometric elements to complement the setting of the venue. We used hexagon marble tiles as place cards for each guest and gold rimmed flatware for a glam look. We garlanded the tables with greens, blooms and varying sized candles in gold vessels to elevate the ambiance of the dinner. As the pièce de résistance, we hung greens and light orbs over the tables. Swoon!

Since Karla and Lloyd are both major foodies, the food needed to be absolutely delicious! The guests left with a full, happy tummy!

Finally, in light of the holiday season, we set up a kissing corner with a mistletoe. It was so much fun!

This is it for now lovebirds! We hope you enjoyed Karla and Lloyd’s winter wonderland inspired celebration and we wish them the very best for their marriage life!

Palm Springs Love Fiesta: Sophie & Aaron Married! (Part 2)

Happy Wedding Wednesday lovebirds!

As promised last time, today, we’ll be sharing with you the super intimate and grand wedding of Sophie and Aaron. In case you missed last week’s post, the couple celebrated their wedding weekend at the Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs where they had 5 events over a 4-day weekend and their celebration was no doubt one of our favorites from 2017. So without further ado, please enjoy Sophie and Aaron’s amazing wedding day!

Sophie and Aaron are a lovely couple from New York and they both have a great sense of design so it was an honor to be able to bring their aesthetic to life. Their vision for the wedding was to have a celebration that was modern, elegant and simple yet luxe so we decided to use neutrals such as white, oatmeal and touches of grey as their color focus.

To bring a super chic and clean vibe for their wedding, we brought in a chuppah overloaded with lush, white flowers and peeks of green leaves; it was truly breathtaking.

One of our favorite details from their wedding was all the customized printed items that screamed fun and grand at the same time. We used gold foil on the programs, menus and table assignment board to match their invitation suite and add a touch of elegance… we loved how they all turned out!

To make the night even more special, we brought in a surprise aquadance performance during cocktail hour which had the couple and guests talking all night!

For their reception, the couple had a family-style dinner. We used long banquet tables paired with delicate white linens for a smooth and clean look. At each place setting, we used 1 green glass as a pop of color. The guests dined under chandeliers, bistro lights, glowing orbs and poms of flowers.

Finally, we also let up a lounge area with a New York nightclub feel to bring the couple a sense of home and it was so much fun!

The night ended with lots of dancing and sweets which gave us all the feels when their celebration was coming to an end.

This is it for Sophie and Aaron’s fete! We hope you enjoyed reading all about the couple’s wedding festivities and we wish nothing but the best for their wedding journey!

Palm Springs Love Fiesta: Sophie & Aaron Married! (Part 1)

Hi lovebirds,

Today, we’re ecstatic to share with you the wedding weekend of one of our favorite couples from 2017. We had the pleasure of working with them to put together 5 events over a 4-day weekend (wooh!), and it was definitely one for the books! Next week, we’ll be sharing more of their wedding day but today, we’ll show you all the fun festivities that surrounded the weekend. So without further ado, let’s give it up for Sophie and Aaron.

Sophie and Aaron’s fête took place at the Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs. We kicked off their wedding weekend with a welcome reception where we served mezze, munchies and handcrafted cocktails to show all the guests what they have in store for the weekend.  

The day before the wedding, we put together a giant pool party that spanned over 2 pools. While 1 pool was your typical tiki-themed pool party filled with floaties galore, the other one was reserved for more mature guests and it had a more laid-back and relaxed vibe. To bring their vision to live, we prepared leis, sunglasses and flip-flops for all the guests to enjoy.

To complete the true pool-party experience, we had deliciously exotic snacks served all day and even set-up a tiki bar with tropical drinks. Just before you thought it couldn’t have gotten any better, we also brought in games and a DJ spinning real vinyl throughout the day; it was so much fun!  

Following a whole day of fun at the pool was the rehearsal dinner on Friday night. Since Aaron is Australian, we decided to go with an Aussie-vibe where we had an outdoor BBQ and fun for all. All the guests had the choice of red or white sangria upon arrival (Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi! Oi! Oi!). We lit up the whole backyard with Chinese lanterns to make the venue all the more romantic. The night was filled with sentimental toasts and delicious Mexican food, needless to say it was truly beautiful and heart-warming.

On Sunday, the morning after the wedding, we had a farewell brunch for all the guests and it was honestly the perfect ending to the weekend. We had brunch foods, mimosas and bloody marys served all morning, leaving all the guests with a happy tummy! In terms of decor, we chose to use vibrant florals but clean linens in order to tie together the wedding and the rehearsal dinner.

This is it for Sophie and Aaron’s wedding weekend festivities. We hope you had as much fun reading all about it as we did planning it and stay tuned for next week’s blog post on these lovebirds’ beautiful wedding day!

Intimately Enchanting Celebration: Annalee & Ethan Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday lovebirds,

Today, we couldn’t be more excited to share with you another real wedding! Annalee and Ethan are one of our favorite couples of all time. We worked with them to create a celebration that was playful, relaxed, romantic with a touch of whimsy, and had a sense of intimate enchantment… and we absolutely loved how it turned out!

Annalee and Ethan’s gorgeous celebration took place at Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado, California. This venue is super unique because it is located in the Rancho Wildlife Foundation which really added the wow factor to the wedding. The colors we chose to focus on for their fête were true blues (navy to medium), greens, whites and pops of diluted mauve/blush. We just love how classy and sophisticated these combinations look together.

To make their soiree even more special, we brought in a set of vintage arched glass doors to mark the entrance of the aisle. Swoon. We utilized a mix of wooden and clear acrylic signs throughout the event to pair the rustic venue with a clean, chic vibe. Finally, we surrounded everything with romantical, lush and organic florals galore to transport the guests into a fairy tale wedding.

The couple really wanted their wedding to have details while remaining extremely clean so for the reception, we exposed all the wooden tables and spiced the setting up with clear chargers with gold rims and blue colored glasses. To make the ambiance more romantic, we also added twinkle lights, glowing candles and blush-toned florals.

It was very important for Annalee and Ethan that their celebration was intimate. To that end, we brought in rocks with each guest’s name on it (in a foxy diluted teal hue) as a personalized take-away from the day. To get from the cocktail hour to the receptions, guests walked through a three-story cafe. We filled every nook and cranny of this space with over 100 family photos.  

The night ended with lots of dancing and a super fun cake. We chose a playful patterned linens to serve as the base of our dessert and cocktail tables and the outcome was truly stunning.

And this is it for now lovebirds! We hope you enjoyed this as much as we loved putting this wedding together. Thank you Annalee and Ethan for allowing us to create this beautiful celebration and we couldn’t be more excited for our mama to be!
