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!

Love Found in the Heart of L.A. – Allison & Matthew Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Before the year is up, we have one more wedding to share with you. We loved creating this celebration with the couple to bring their different backgrounds and fun personalities into the fabric of their day. Without further ado, we are happy to share the wedding of Allison & Matt with you, one of our favorite couples of last year.

Allison and Matt are a fun-loving couple that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. The love between these love-birds sparked when they met in college at Yale University. Matt is a Jewish actor and composer while Allison is a catholic Irish scholar of love in literature. For Allison’s Irish background, the couple opted for a traditional wedding at St. Ambrose Catholic Church located in West Hollywood. As urban-foodie lovers and Allison’s love for literature, it only made sense that the couple decided to hold their reception at Cafe Pinot located in the heart of downtown directly beside the Los Angeles Public Library.

We worked with Allison and Matt to create an enchanted urban garden filled with color and pattern that the guests could never forget. The design had a tailored elegance inspired by the colors of their alma mater using navy and greens with white touches and pops of copper (foxy, foxy foxy!). We wanted the place to glow, so we used florals with muted, neutral tones surrounded by candles galore to emphasize the natural and organic atmosphere with bistro lights overhead and uplights throughout the space to light up the night.

If you had not noticed, the name cards were paired with Irish bells. This Irish tradition is two-fold: to keep the bad spirits away, and as a signal for the couple to kiss (opposed to the old glass clink)! It was really important to this pair that their guests have a super fun time, so we incorporated “game night” fun with customized playing cards as party favors, and board games in the lounge area. Oh, and our favorite touch was the fancy-pants scotch tasting bar that kept the party going all night long!

The food was catered by the Patina restaurant group and was absolutely to die for. The night ended with an adorable cutting of the cake and a sweet kiss from the couple as the guests partied the night away.

Allison and Matthew’s wedding was a celebration to remember. We are so grateful to have been a part of it! Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you for another fun night out!

Black Tie Botanical Whimsical Soiree: Marisa & Jason Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Today, we are so excited to share with you one of our favorite weddings of 2016. From the moment I met Marisa & Jason, I fell in love with their sweet disposition and chill, yet excitable demeanor. We are grateful to have been able to plan & design with these love-birds. Together, we were able to create an event that really resembled their personalities. It was a fab time, and looked drop-dead gorgeous! Their wedding was unique in it’s aesthetic and design combining formal, whimsical, and urban touches all around. It was one of those times when we mixed together an overwhelming amount of visuals, but it totally worked!

Marisa & Jason’s wedding was a well styled celebration of love and family. To get a general idea of their style and design, you have to understand some context of the couple. Marisa and Jason both work in the music biz and also happen to have the cutest little girl that you have ever seen named Olive that served as their flower girl.

The couple fell in love with Millwick, a venue with funky furniture in the middle of the arts district in downtown, because it gave them the perfect template to bring their creative, artistic vision to life.

It was important for the couple that all their guests have a great time and that the aesthetics were very detailed. We worked with them to craft a romantic soiree that was super fun, gorgeous and meaningful. As a venue, Millwick already has quite a bit going on, but the couple wanted to elevate the space to bring it from a laid back backdrop to the perfect setting for a formal fete. To set the stage, we started by hanging both greenery and bistro lights from the ceiling (lush + enchantment = swoon).

We made it detailed, but kept it simple and clean. We used individual champagne bottles as both the party favor and place card. We brought in cool mirror art, vintage glassware, specialty flatware, and lots of fun fab touches and more to bring the look from pretty to perfect!

We even put together a bit of a speakeasy with a secret tequila tasting and cigar bar, and brought in an old car to take fun photos.

Really fun meets really beautiful in this family-styled feast, complimented by one heck-of a Maids-of-Honor speech set to the ever so familiar “Fresh Prince of BelAir” rap.

The food was to die for and the look was divine. Everyone danced the night away and had an amazing night! Guests called it the best wedding ever (and we’ll take it!). We are also very excited to see this wedding featured in California Weddings Day’s upcoming magazine. Can’t wait!
