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 Vogue.com!

A couple of months ago we were beyond honored to be asked to join a stellar crew of vendors at the West Elm and Green Wedding Shoes Wedding Party they held in the Beverly Hills store.  Of course, being paired up with our favorite Little Branch gals is always a treat but to also share the store with Bash Please, Moon Canyon, Primary Petals, Firefly Events, Shindig Chic and so, so many more amazing, talented people.  I LOVED our set-up and I hope one of you lovelies hires us to recreate this for a wedding because it’s so much fun!  The inspiration board we were given was based on West Elm’s summer catalog which had a Joshua Tree meets Moroccan vibe.  Hello so up our alley!  See more of Mary Costa’s photos on GWS!GWSWestElm_650px_41GWSWestElm_650px_42

Last spring we were lucky enough to be a part of an epic DIY wedding at the Moniker Warehouse in San Diego.  Not only were the bride and groom uber-creative and talented (they designed and produced most of the decor for their modern, bohemian, industrial, camping-inspired party) but the team they put together was pretty much the dreamiest – PowWow, MIHO, Let’s Frolic Together, Mostra Coffee.  It doesn’t get much better than that!

We were so excited when Katherine and Ricardo asked us to help design and coordinate their vibrant, fun and elegant wedding in Balboa Park.  It was such a nice departure from the neutral palettes, as lovely as they are, that we’ve been seeing so much of recently.  The tone and vibe of this awesome party definitely matched the decor with a musician-led parade through Balboa Park, phenomenal cocktails and beer from Blind Lady Ale House, delicious food from The Vetted Table and a no-holding-back dance party.  Tucked away in the Spanish Village Arts Center we felt like we had been transported to a vibrant South American or European city and the night was truly magical.  And, of course, as always, Studio Castillero’s photos are to-die-for.  The Bride and Groom’s beaming smiles throughout the evening were the best part of the entire event!

    You do such incredible work! What gorgeous colors! I love the orange name cards!! Do you happen to know who made the bride’s dress? It’s amazing!ReplyCancel

I met the gorgeous Jelynn at this wedding where her company Mostra was serving up delicious brew.  A few months later we were at her own beautiful wedding in Palm Springs.  It was one of the hottest weekends ever at the oh-so-cool Colony Palms Hotel but no one seemed to mind….especially when a pool party broke out at the end of the night starting with the bride and groom!  Encarnacion Photography went above and beyond (jumping into the pool themselves) to capture every moment perfectly!

We don’t really have anything to complain about weather-wise in Southern California but I know some folks are looking longingly out there frosted windowpanes and dreaming of brighter, warmer days.  Hopefully this tropical-inspired wedding shoot we designed last Spring will be just the thing to heat things up.  We built the table ourselves with mid-century modern hairpin legs that went oh-so-well with our Palm Springs abode – The Amado.  If you are visiting Palm Springs try to snag one of these rooms.  It is such an incredible spot.  And if you’re getting married in Palm Springs it would be the perfect wedding party hangout or rehearsal dinner compound.  We also handcrafted the tulle skirt to pair with Mara Hoffman‘s stunning bridal bustier and hand-painted bells for the escort cards (one of our favorite bohemian details!).  This shoot was just bursting with creativity from the talented minds of Jen Plus ColourThe Little Branch, Papermade Design and Cucina Coronado.  And, of course, Ashley Kelemen Photography‘s images are, like always, beyond dreamy.   A lot of these shots have been making the rounds on Instagram and Pinterest too and we couldn’t be happier!
