I tell ya…when you get to work with your best friends and favorite vendors at a wedding some serious magic happens.  This past weekend we created a dreamy, vintage-y, beach wedding for one of the sweetest couples I’ve worked with yet and we got to party with our besties Captured by Aimee, The Little Branch and PowWow.

We also met some new friends who I hope, hope, hope we get to work with again and again and again.  Bryan at Pacific Entertainment might be my new favorite DJ.  He blends great tunes and exceptional emcee-ing like I’ve never seen before.  He made my job so much easier, has an all-around great attitude (seriously he’s the nicest guy!) and kept the dance floor full all night long!  And the big hit of night had to be The Vintage Vault – a photo booth like no other!  This adorable husband and wife team designed and built a genius photo booth set up with props and fun backdrops.  We love them!  Come to every wedding please!

Here’s a little sneak of the set up we did for the beach ceremony with Little Branch‘s alter + arrangements and vintage doors from PowWow.  How gorgeous is this!!!?

How genius is Brandon Kidd?  Not only are he and his wife freaking adorable and so much fun to work with but their photos are just about the prettiest around.  I am hardcore drooling over the images he took of Fern and Jeff’s wedding.  Here are a few of my favs!

Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about getting to share this AWESOME wedding with you.  When Fern asked me to help her create + plan a modern, fairy-tale, Marie Antoinette-inspired wedding at Calamigos Ranch I’m pretty sure my answer was “UM, YES, PLEASE”!  Fern is a super-duper creative gal so she wanted to craft a lot of the pieces herself like the invitations, escort flags + paper flowers.  But I couldn’t resist creating some elements myself like from bright, bold, pom arches to french signs.

Here’s the inspiration board I made as part of our Design Blueprint…

and I’ll share my fav photos by Brandon Kidd with you soon but for now head over to Green Wedding Shoes!

    Thanks for everything Emilia!!! You are absolutely AMAZING!! <3 <3ReplyCancel

And, big surprise, my absolute favorite table from the inspiration shoots we did with Captured by Aimee has to be the bohemian look.  My awesome assistant, Melinda, helped come up with the concept and design elements for this one and I just love how it all came together.  I love the rich textures, colors….it’s just gorgeous!  Make sure you check out the feature on Style Me Pretty California too!



I’m so happy to be able to feature the second tablescape from the project I worked on with Captured by Aimee!  We took three standard wedding motifs – classic, modern and bohemian – and gave them our own personal twist.  This is our rose pink and gold classic table filled with romantic, dreamy details.  Perfect for the modern girly girl.  You can see even more details at Style Me Pretty today!

And check out our first table – Modern Teal + Gold – right here!

I’ve been getting a lot of love on Pinterest lately for one of the very first photo shoots that I ever did with Erin Ever After and flutter glass Photography!  Even though it’s more than two years old now I think it still holds up pretty well!  Bright pops of coral and ombre, succulents and bohemian details are trends that are still going strong!  You can see even more photos from this shoot on The Sweetest Occasion and Style Me Pretty!
