The Cream Event

We had such a blast at The Cream Event this year….I think it might have been the best one so far and I’m not just saying that because I was lucky enough to be a part of it!  And I was lucky enough to get paired with the most phenomenal partner – Miss Alise of Sweet Marie Designs.  Working with this girl was a dream and she is, without a doubt, a floral goddess!

Thank you One Love Photography for capturing all of these details!!!  See more on Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake and Grey Likes Weddings!

Also, thanks to The Hostess Haven for letting me borrow the fabulous flatware!  Might be my favorite part!

    Loved the predominate use of greens in the archway. Really gave the entire scene a very refined and elegant feel. Great pictures!ReplyCancel

Michelle + Gareth at The Darlington House

Last October we were so privileged to be a part of a day that can only be described as pure magic.  The Darlington House set the most romantic scene for this Refined Bohemian soiree.  The bride and groom are not only totally gorgeous, stylish and creative but also so in love and sweet.  We couldn’t have asked for a dreamier client.  They were open to our less traditional ideas like covering the existing arch with Bougainvillea, using Noah Bells for escort cards and vintage matchbooks – something they collect- for the guest book which guests then placed in cigar boxes.  Everything from the linens to the flowers to Michelle’s fantastic long-sleeved, lace gown helped create the ideal elegant, chic and insanely fun wedding.   Jill Thomas, a photographer I have admired and loved for years, captured every moment, every detail with total perfection.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  Any big romantic plans out there?  I’m dreaming of jet-setting to some warm, tropical place and hanging out on a hammock with a cocktail or two.  Probably not going to happen but a girl can dream, right?  Most likely I’ll be sitting at home on the couch catching up on True Detective!  So romantic!

This table we designed with The Little Branch a couple of years ago for the Utterly Engaged party Fizz and Frills always makes me think of Valentine’s Day and a sweet dinner for two with girly, pink details balanced out by the black and white graphics.  I love the floral details that were hand-painted for us and used throughout and the little touch of glitzy glam!

The Cream March 9th

June and Daniel at Rancho Las Lomas on Style Me Pretty

It doesn’t get much better than waking up on a Monday morning to find out that one of your all-time favorite weddings is featured on Style Me Pretty!  And that also means that I get to finally share these images from the phenomenal talent Elan Klein!  This day pretty much had the dream team of vendors – Elan, 24 Carrots, Pow Wow Vintage Rentals, Borrowed BluAustin HendrixThorne ArtistryModern 8 Films, and Smile Booth!  And, of course, the dreamiest of venues – Rancho Las Lomas.  This place is pure magic with the gorgeous teatro, stunning gardens, a cozy reception room and tigers! June and Daniel, who are two of the sweetest people ever, handcrafted a lot of the decor themselves like the wood signs, table numbers and adorable lace covered potted succulents.  We brought in a mix of vintage bud vases filled with sweet, soft-hued stems and, paired with Borrowed Blu’s handmade napkins and runners and Pow Wow’s fun, vintage glassware, the setting was beyond romantic!
