California Wedding Day Best of 2017 Winners!

We are so excited to announce that we won BEST Event Design at the California Wedding Day Best of 2017 Awards

We were so honored to be nominated for this category, which was voted on first by the public, then by our vendor peers, and lastly by the magazine itself! Once we got to the final four, we were invited to attend the awards ceremony in downtown LA, at the beautiful Vibiana

This night was one for the books! A bunch of our vendor friends from SLO drove down the coast to attend this party, and it was so fun to celebrate with them all (see photo above!). There were four areas that rounded out this Best of Awards: San Luis Obispo County, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Ventura County/Santa Barabara. It was so fun to cheer on vendors who won from all these different areas. But it was especially fun to cheer on vendors from our little small town of SLO! And it was no mistake that we were THE loudest area by far. We love each other so much!

Above are some moments from when we won, it was such an honor to be up on that stage. All the late nights, long hours and FUN that comes with planning weddings. We absolutely love our jobs and love creating beauty for our couples. There is nothing better!

Thank you California Wedding Day!

Agate Slice Place Cards + Wedding Prepping

We're prepping for a fun modern wedding coming up this weekend, and we've got some pretty exciting design elements in the works that we just couldn't wait to share!

Agate has been popping up everywhere, and we can't get enough. We got a huge shipment of it in last week, and this is how it looked..

I mean, those colors?! Insane. We had an idea of what we wanted to do with these little guys (they're about 3" wide), and that was to use them as place cards for each guest! See below:

We wrote on them with beautiful gold foil pens (iPhone photos don't quite do it justice), and gave the caterers a little heads up on Beef or Fish in the right hand corner. Don't they just look adorable?! 

We also can't wait to show you what we've done with the larger agate slices. It's going to be a Palm Springs wedding full of modern, yet earthy decor and it's sure to be a pretty one. We'll be sharing photos of this weekend on our Instagram, so check that out as well!

Featured On... Inspired by This!

Inspired by This is one of our favorite all-around blogs; they are constantly posting the most interesting content! It ranges from inspiring weddings, to adorable small businesses, to the most delicious recipes you can find. That is why we were so excited when they expressed interest in the Boho Caribbean wedding shoot we designed! Click here to see their lovely blog post!

We styled this shoot with the Caribbean in mind, even though we were far from it! This venue is in the middle of Paso Robles- a country town known for it's great wine here in the Central Coast! Danielle Poff photographed this beauty and we just loved how it turned out. Although it rained the entire time, the decor and mood of the Caribbean shined through! 

Each and every vendor put so much time and effort into this shoot and it really shows. Thank you to you all!
