Brendon + Mykaela's Montage Laguna Wedding is on MARTHA!

We are so honored to be featured yet again in our favorite wedding blog of all time: MARTHA WEDDINGS!

Brendon and Mykaela got married on September 1, 2018, and had the most beautiful celebration at the Montage Laguna Beach. We had the honor of planning and designing their wedding in less than 6 months!

Our bride and groom are avid travelers, so we incorporated a slight travel theme to their overall wedding design. We are thrilled how it turned out, and the editors at Martha Weddings did a fantastic job at writing all about it. Check the blog post out here!

As always, we love to share the Mood Board we designed at the very beginning stages of planning. So fun to see how the wedding turned out based on this overall design we created! To see the full gallery of photos by the talented Ashley Ludaescher, and video by Nikki Riehle, head to our Portfolio.

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!

The JAM Event Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

When Cameron Ingalls first approached us to design a space at The Jam Event for The Wedding Standard, we were a bit hesitant. The theme was 1980's and we weren't sure where to begin. This is not our favorite decade design-wise! But of course we're willing to do anything for Cameron, so we put our thinking caps on and decided to go for it. 

Our idea was to go full Miami Vice and create an over-the-top surf inspired/iridescent/pastel paradise. The Wedding Standard sponsored a space at The Jam Event where we were able to design a tablescape and lounge with our pal and florist Katie Noonan. It was pink, blue, punchy and bright, and everything we like about the 80's. 

The entire album of images from The Jam is featured on Green Wedding Shoes today- check it out! After we saw all the other design spaces at the party we decided this decade wasn't so bad. Everyone knocked it out of the park!

The floral + balloon installation above is by Bright Inc and we LOVED it. The colors, textures, asymmetry, everything. Best way to start a party!

See our table and lounge design on Green Wedding Shoes under "THE VICE" and let us know what you think!

"Not Your Average Ranch Wedding" featured on Style Me Pretty

Our beautiful couple Ali & Thane are featured on Style Me Pretty today! Ali and Thane were such a special couple to us. We could feel the true love between these two, and they were just the sweetest, most down-to-earth, laid back, fun and happy couple. We absolutely adored them and their families, and working their wedding did NOT feel like work at all! 

We were hired on for our Design + Month-Of Coordination service, where we walked them through each part of the design process: color palette, picking out linens, tables, floor plan design, floral choices and design of ceremony/reception tables, seating chart design, and so much more. Ali's favorite color was turquoise, and when she decided on navy bridesmaid dresses, we knew we could bring that color in with La Tavola's blue and white Casablanca linens! Precious & Blooming florals really brought in the magic with her beautiful floral designs and Jen Rodriguez captured everything so beautifully! 

Below is the design board we created for Ali and Thane, and a link to the final product- their wedding photos published on Style Me Pretty as "Not Your Average Ranch Wedding". Because do we ever do average ranch weddings?
