Debbie & Frank's Seaside Wedding

On the weekend of Thanksgiving last year, we planned a beautiful seaside wedding for Debbie and Frank.

Although their marriage took place later in life, it didn’t deter these two from being head over heels for each other. Through every meeting we had with them planning colors, details, food and decor, these two seemed to be just so in love!

When talking with the two of them about their wedding design and feel, they made it clear they wanted a beach style wedding, with seashells and sunset toned florals. They wanted it to be a comfortable, fun space for their friends and family to gather and celebrate. Below is the mood board we created for their reception design, full of beach inspired shells, coral and driftwood, and the sunset toned florals. After looking at all the photos from their day, leave a comment below if you think we hit the mark with the design!

 
 

The reception took place at a private home in Shell Beach, right on the cliffs of the ocean. With various soft seating lounges throughout the yard, we brought the indoors out for a fun celebration that went well into the night. The sunset toned florals by Precious and Blooming were just the perfect accent to the ocean front property. Guests were sitting on the lounges, dancing on the dance floor and celebrating all night long!

This was such a lovely wedding to be a part of, and we will never forget the planning that went into it, and enjoying watching all the guests and Debbie and Frank celebrate. Debbie is no longer with us, and it is with heavy hearts that we send her family and friends our deepest condolences. She was the sweetest to us and we will forever cherish our memories of planning her day with her. Thank you Debbie for being so wonderful! <3

Gemstone Place Cards

A few weeks ago, photographer Alexandra Wallace approached us to see if we could make some place cards for a shoot she was working on. We absolutely love making place cards, and any type of event signage, so we jumped at the chance!

 
 

Alexandra was working with some amazing fellow central coast vendors and we couldn't wait to see what they were dreaming up. The team consisted of Alexandra, Gusto on the Go, Copper and Crystal, and Eden Floral Designs.

Above is the Pinterest board that the team had put together, which we fell in love with! All the color, flowers, fruit and texture give us heart eyes all the way. We decided a natural texture would go with this shoot, as opposed to a paper or acrylic option, so we picked out the prettiest colored gemstones we could find, complete with gilded edges, and got to work!

We chose gemstones in a blue and pink palette, cut out names in gold foil in a fresh, modern font, and they were off to the shoot! We are so happy with how they came out, and they looked right at home with the other details in this Floral Bridesmaid Brunch shoot. 

Even though we just contributed a tiny detail in this shoot, we love it all the same - these vendors did an amazing job. See more on Green Wedding Shoes!

Shayla and Michael's gorgeous fall wedding is featured on the front page of Snippet and Ink today!

 We absolutely love this blog and are honored to be recognized as the planners and designers of their wedding. 

One of the things we love about fall on the central coast is the crisp air and warm golden light. Shayla & Michael's wedding radiated just that, plus lots of LOVE! These two were the sweetest, most relaxed and laid back couple on their wedding day. Michael wanted everything to flow smoothly for his wife-to-be, and you could just tell how much they loved each other. 

We can't help looking back on their wedding with huge smiles on our faces. We loved these two! See the full feature, here
