"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?

Collaborations Across the Central Coast

We are so fortunate to live amongst so many talented wedding vendors here in the central coast of california. There are photographers, planners, designers, florists, and wedding vendors galore, and we love collaborating with as many as we can! 

Our vendor friend, Kelsey, of A Lovely Creative, asked to use our tabletop goods for two photoshoots earlier this year, each at gorgeous venues with incredibly talented photographers- what could be better?

These first photos above are from a shoot at Greengate Ranch (a venue close to our hearts!) with photographer Jen Rodriguez. Our vintage glassware, wood chargers, crystal salt cellars, and teak & brass flatware look perfect on the dining table amidst Wilder floral co.'s gorgeous blooms. We are overjoyed with the photos we got back from this shoot, and can't wait to share more once the feature goes live! We really can't get enough of that horse, either. Such a beauty!

The next styled shoot, pictured above, was photographed by Cameron Ingalls out at the Justin Winery in Paso Robles, California. It looks like a french chateau and lends a romantic, european vibe to any event. We are more than obsessed with this centerpiece by the talented and local florist, April Flowers, and are fortunate to have our tabletop goods among the beauty! 

Pictured here is our ornate gold flatware, gold chargers, crystal champagne coupes, and gold-rimmed wine glasses. All available to rent for up to 200 guests! And that beautiful calligraphy is done by Rosey Calligraphy (on the mini cakes, too!).

So thank you to all our vendor friends across the central coast. None of this beauty would be possible without everyone's constant collaboration and endless creativity. 

Wedding Weekend: Palm Springs!

This past weekend at Sand Acre Estate in Palm Springs was absolutely magical! We planned and designed a gorgeous affair for our bride and groom, and the bride described it as "better than she imagined." After months and months of vendor coordination, multiple design boards, and endless checklists, those four words were just what we wanted to hear!

The lovely sweetheart table where we re-used the ceremony backdrop!

In case you didn't read our last blog post, the theme of the wedding was based around travel and the vibe was boho Palm Springs. These two are avid travelers, so globes, airplanes, and table names based on their honeymoon destinations were all part of their wedding design. 

Here are some photos we took on our iPhones during the setup of the ceremony! 

And next came setup of the reception space! Sand Acre Estate is a gorgeous venue and was such a  fun challenge to make this wedding unique to the couple. 

It was about 100 degrees during setup, but that didn't stop us! We kept well hydrated and had great vendors to work alongside with, including Classic Party Rentals, Primary Petals, and Borrowed Blu to name a few! That last photo is of the two of us after we were completely done with setup and ready to start coordinating the wedding. 

We can't wait to share all the professional photos that Jessica Castro captured on their big day! We're sure they're going to be just beautiful. Congratulations to the happy bride and groom {who are having a fabulous time on their honeymoon right about now!}

Bianca and Carson Tie The Knot!

We had been looking forward to this wedding for a very long time, both because we were SO excited about the design, and because Bianca and Carson are some of the sweetest and most genuine people we've ever worked with! This included their family members and all those who helped along the way. 

The venue alone was gorgeous, and the home on site is one of several Pioneer Log Homes- crazy cool log cabin homes built around the world! These are just a few iPhone photos that we can't resist posting. Jake and Necia were photographing the entire thing and we can't wait to see what they have to share! We'll probably be posting more on our Instagram, too. 

So many details went into this event; from the tent layout to all the custom signage, there was nothing we didn't touch! All the vendors involved really made this wedding epic and most of all we are just so excited for Bianca and Carson in their marriage!
