Of course, I hope that you all have a MERRY and BRIGHT holiday this year but I’m kind of digging the idea of a dark and moody winter wedding or holiday dinner party. Black sequins, midnight blue, gold and pops of coral and peony pink. Check out the pinterest board for all the credits!
Did you catch our latest feature on Green Wedding Shoes? My favorite floral ladies over at The Little Branch asked me to help out with the design and planning of this adorable winter table inspiration. I had been wanting to do something with wool and wood and this was the perfect opportunity. I made the super cute and oh-so easy napkin rings from old sweater cuffs! The square, wood chargers were one of my favorite elements. I stained precut wood from Michaels. Easy! I love how effortlessly elegant it all looks and so cozy! Perfect for a holiday party or Christmas dinner!
A client recently asked me for flower girl dress recommendations that are under or around $50. Ever since becoming a mommy I’ve become a wee bit obsessed with the baby + kid sections at Target, Gap and H+M. Right now, or after the holiday when the sales start, are great times to hit the stores because the party frocks are in full effect! Here are a few of my favorites…

My bestie + wedding photographer extraordinaire Aimee asked me to put together a Design Blueprint for her best friend in Florida who is getting married next year and I liked it so much that I had to share it with you. I have to admit that sometimes I’m afraid of too much color. I tend to lean towards soft, romantic colors or neutrals with pops of bright hues but I love a challenge so I jumped at the chance to create this colorful mood board for Tina and Matt’s modern beach affair. I can’t wait to see Aimee’s photos! Check out my pinterest page for credits and loads more photos.
This past August I had the great pleasure to witness the marriage not only of two of the nicest people I’ve ever met but two of the nicest families! I was also lucky enough to work with my best friends in the biz – Captured by Aimee, The Little Branch and PowWow – plus gain some more friends like Bryan from Pacific Entertainment (LOVE him!). Deborah and Richard shared a magical, intimate, gorgeous day at The Sunset in Malibu and here are a few of my favorite photos from Miss Aimee. See the rest on Style Me Pretty!

Speaking of gorgeous, coming up on November 24th we have a wedding at the spectacular Rancho Las Lomas in Orange County. We are doing design, florals and coordination for this one and we’re looking for a couple fabulous interns to help us execute everything the day-of. If you have an interest in floral design, event planning and event design you will definitely want to be a part of this wedding. Plus Rancho Las Lomas has tigers!!!!

Yesterday I got to work with my dream clients at one of my favorite venues with some of my favorite vendors, my favorite caterer and all photographed by one of my favorite photographers. Needless to say it was a dream day and everything was absolutely gorgeous! Though I helped out with the design concept the creative and pretty-as-can-be bride created most of the details and we installed and styled everything for her from the fringe ceremony curtains to the hanging mirror bar signs. We were busy, busy bees getting our floral on too! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I was documenting every detail from the day!
We had a great time at Fizz and Frills yesterday! The Utterly Engaged girls really put on a fantastic event at Pandora on Green (can I do a wedding here PLEASE!). Here’s a couple photos I snapped of our table. I wanted to create an overgrown garden look with a modern feel. Melinda painted the prettiest watercolor for me and I used that as the main ingredient in all the paper goods and inspiration for the rest of the display. Meg from The Little Branch killed it as always with framed ivy for our escort cards and the most gorgeous, lush centerpiece ever.
