To say I adore these two is a huge understatement.  Sarah and Dre just radiate coolness but they are also two of the most genuine, open-hearted and light-filled people I’ve ever met.  Their rad, desert wedding in Pioneertown was the perfect representation of their style and relaxed but cool vibe.  It was also one of the most love-filled celebrations I’ve had the honor of attending.

I am way behind on sharing all the  lovely events we’ve been lucky enough to be a part of over the past couple of years.  I am so happy to be able to break the radio silence with one of my favorite weddings ever.  Tanah and Lev could not be more kind, genuine, considerate and amazing.  It was such an honor getting to know them throughout the planning process and being able to put together a magical, elegantly bohemian wedding in Tanah’s parents’ backyard.  When clients’ trust us and the amazing vendors we recommend the result is just breathtaking.  We were able to hand-craft their chuppah, work with the talented Olive Willow Designs, pick pieces from our favorite gal The Hostess Haven and rock out with our best buds Dart DJ.  The Knot Southern California featured this in their latest issue and we are just pleased as punch!  Birds of a Feather nailed it with the photos like always!

Happy New Year!  We are so excited to be kicking off our SEVENTH year planning and designing weddings!  We couldn’t be more in love with our 2016 clients and can’t wait for everything that’s in store.  To celebrate we wanted to share a New Year’s Eve wedding from last year with one of the most gorgeous, genuine and sweet couples on the planet.  Their wedding was full of sparkle, light, love and laughter.

Since we headed out to Joshua Tree a couple of weekends ago for an awesome autumn desert wedding I thought it would be appropriate to share this fun and fabulous desert wedding from earlier this year.  Anna and Max are a creative, talented and incredible couple that I just adored working with on their modern DIY wedding at 29 Palms Inn (LOVE this venue!).  One of my absolute fav photographers, Fondly Forever, was there to capture every perfect moment.  The bride and groom handcrafted everything from the invitations to the dip-died tablecloths.  I love that Anna wore the beaded Mara Hoffman bustier (a favorite from our tropical shoot)!

This pastel-hued vineyard wedding has everything – it is elegant, romantic and personal, has the perfect setting, and the most adorable couple.  We feel so honored that we got to play a small part in what was a beyond epic day.  The team that day at Saddlerock were top-notch and every detail just perfectly executed.  We always love being at the dome at Saddlerock Ranch and this is one of our all-time favorites!  See more on Green Wedding Shoes!

Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible—it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.—Barbara De Angelis

We joined forces with some of the most fabulous vendors in the biz – Whiskers and Willows, Type and Title, Pow Wow, Borrowed Blu, Thorne Artistry, Dress Theory and Beauty by Stacey – and the result was pure magic.  The inspiration came from the above quote as well as all that woo-woo stuff I love.  You can see so much more on 100 Layer Cake today!

    Someone over there said they’ve just moved to Monrovia? And so are we. Must be a Monrovia Move Movement 😉

I can’t believe I never shared the images from this fantasic event with you!  Awhile back the incredible Jaime from Wild Heart Events asked us to design a table for their epic Jam Event in Santa Barbara.  The greenhouse venue was to-die for and all the vendors that Jaime gathered together were amazing.  We had access to some of the best rentals and decor which makes our job pretty easy!  We were paired up perfectly with a Woodstock-theme and created a peace sign centerpiece, floral placemats, flower crown and boutonniere place cards and a crazy, flower explosion guitar.  Flower power to the max!  A BIG THANK YOU to Borrowed Blu for letting me borrow her awesome dip-dyed napkins!

See more from this phenomenal party on Green Wedding Shoes!  Pretty sweet that our instagram shot of the table got a shout out on!
