Jen + Tim featured on Style Me Pretty!

Jen and Tim's gorgeous fall wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty today!

We planned and designed this wedding and Jen Rodriguez took the most beautiful photos of the day. Noonan's Wine Country Designs designed the gorgeous and lush florals, taking our color palette to the next level! The ceremony was one of our favorite parts. Simple, romantic and timeless. 

Jen always seems to capture candid moments in such a stunning way, this photo below is one of our favorites, just before these two tied the knot.

It's no secret that we love designing with color, and the rich fall tones that made up this wedding mimicked the bride and groom's love of wine: pinot red and rosé pink. 

We spent months planning this wedding with the lovely couple, and every little detail seemed to fit perfectly in the design. So romantic!

We created each dinner menu, as seen above, with vellum paper, marbled menus, wax seals and gold string. Guests were given wine charms at the escort display, as seen above. And we can't forget about the custom napkins with the wedding monogram!

Such a fun wedding to look back on, and thank you to Style Me Pretty for the feature. 

Last but certainly not least, we'd like to share the mood board that we created in the initial stages of planning for this wedding. After talking with the bride and groom to get a sense of their style, colors and overall feel for their wedding day, this is what we came up with! We always reference mood boards throughout planning and our goal is to have it be the overall feel of the day. How do you think we did?

Camille & Jonathan: A Little Mermaid Inspired Wedding!

When we say 'A Little Mermaid Inspired Wedding", you're probably getting the idea that we had mermaid tails and fish scales flowing abundantly throughout this wedding design. But let us tell you, that is NOT the case! 

Camille and Jonathan first met while working at Walt Disney Studios (hello, dream job), and bonded over the fact that The Little Mermaid was their favorite movie when they were little! Fast forward a few years and they began to plan their wedding, starting with the venue! They chose to get married at Lago Giuseppe in Paso Robles - the most magical venue set beside a lake and mossy trees in the middle of wine country.

They hired us on for Design only, and it was only fitting to incorporate their love of The Little Mermaid (and all things Disney) into their big day. With a color palette of pale ocean blues, deep reds, greens, and sequined neutrals, we created a romantic setting loosely based on the Disney theme.  We created table numbers out of seashells, Camille wore the most beautiful lace wedding dress, and linens were in various shades of blue. It was like a real life fairy tale! 

For the seating chart, we painted our 7' wall pale blue, and hand wrote a romantic quote on it from the Little Mermaid "You're the one, the one that I've been looking for." We wrote guest's names and table numbers in gold calligraphy on real mussel shells, and attached these to the wall for guests to take home. Under these we created a faux seaweed look with dried pampas grass, for a fun underwater feel! This has to be one of our favorites, ever! 

We put thought into each and every detail for C&J's wedding. See those fish shaped candleholders below? We sourced those specifically for this wedding! Jordan Voth captured every little detail, and we  were so excited to finally work with him after stalking his amazing Instagram!

Thanks to a fabulous team of vendors on this one. It was so fun to re-live this beautiful day! See the full gallery, here

Back to blogging

Hi friends!

It's been a while since we've blogged. Our last post was 10 months ago - almost a year! Not only have we been busy planning and designing weddings and events, but we just haven't prioritized blogging like we used to. Back in the day, we'd post every time we received a wedding album, or were featured on a large scale wedding blog or magazine. But once we realized a shift was happening, from Blogs to Instagram, we decided to go the easy route and just focus on upping our Instagram feed. It seemed to be a great platform for us, and our followers grew! Apparently less words, more photos is the way to capture an audience ;)

All that to say, we have decided to bring back the blog! There are certain things we can't post a ton of on Instagram, one of which is our design boards. We love sharing these as they're a little peek into how we go about the design process for events. We love seeing what inspires others so we want to do the same for you. Plus, if no one ends up reading our blog, we can always use it to reminisce!

One of our major goals of this year is to blog more and keep you updated on everything that's happening in the world of Lovelyfest. And if you don't follow us on Instagram, do so now! We post daily and give a lot of insight into our events, behind the scenes, and even some of our personal lives. We had such a fun year of designing and planning various events, and we wanted to share some highlights below. Thank you for following this journey with us, we cannot wait for some amazing 2018 weddings!
