Keeping it Fresh

As we continue reflecting on past work we've done, we couldn't help but stop by this Citrus Inspired shoot we collaborated on with photographer Lindsey Gomes at the most beautifully intimate venue, Hammersky Vineyards. Citrus is a great natural accent piece for styling! 

We have always loved citrus as an accent, but we really wanted to make it the focal point of this inspiration shoot. The color palette consisted of orange and peach, combined with a pale romantic blue. These complementary colors worked perfectly together against the green backdrop of Hammersky and with the rich greenery in the floral arrangements. Eden Florals created the most stunning table arrangements and bouquet, and we tried our hand at floral design with creating a faux greenery and floral backdrop for the cake. 

As you can tell, it wasn't the brightest summer day, but the table setting alone creates a fresh, summery feeling. Using Anthropologie plates and glassware, the table had a farm fresh yet luxurious vibe.

The cake table was possibly our favorite part! The cake, by Christina Bonnet was so adorable and just had a slight blue marbling to it. And our fun triangular shaped backdrop turned out to be the perfect frame for this sweet cutting cake. And yes, we cut into it and it tasted just as good as it looked!  

Thank you to an amazing team of vendors on this shoot!

Angela & Nealon's Biddle Ranch Wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty

Angela & Nealon's 'Chinese American Wedding with a Bold Dose of Color' is featured today on Style Me Pretty!

This wedding was so much fun to plan and design, not only because of our sweet couple, but because we loved the color palette so much. It's not often when a bride comes to us wanting a color palette we haven't seen all over Pinterest! So when Angela told us she loved lavender and rouge, we were hooked. See below for a few of our favorites from the day. Kelsea Holder captured everything effortlessly!

Stephanie + Jared featured on MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS!

Today we are SO incredibly honored and excited to have our wedding featured on

Martha Stewart Weddings!!

If you don't know by now, Lovelyfest is made up by two sisters. Me (Stephanie) and my older sister, Natalie. We have been designing weddings now for exactly four years- our anniversary was yesterday! And one of our biggest dreams came true; we got a wedding featured on Martha! And not just any wedding, but my very own wedding day, when I got to marry my best friend. 

To read more in detail about our big day, and where we came up with our wedding design, head over to the Martha Stewart Weddings blog! The editors at MSW asked us to describe our day in detail and they did such a fantastic job of putting it all together.

Our friend Mirelle Carmichael was there to capture our whole day (a lot of it with film photography, too!) and we are beyond impressed with her skills. Each photo she took is intentional, detailed, and captures all the emotions of our day. We will cherish these photos forever. We've posted a few here, but to see the full album from our wedding, head to our Portfolio! Please excuse us for the excessive amounts of photos. When you receive thousands of photos back from your photographer, it's tough to narrow it down! And for a full list of vendors who made our wedding special, scroll to the bottom of this post. 

We've thought about sharing more about the planning process behind our wedding, which we might do so here on the blog in the future (if we get any requests!). But for now, we'd love to share one planning decision we made that we will never regret. And that is hiring a videographer. Cameron Ingalls is not only one of our good friends, but he is an amazing photographer and videographer! We hired him on to do our video and we are so glad we did. See for yourself, below!
