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. 

Design Board // Biddle Ranch Wedding Shoot

Whether it's a styled wedding shoot or a real wedding, inspiration strikes us in the same way. We'll brainstorm together during a walk outside, start pinning beautiful images on Pinterest, and then make a mood board that encompasses our ideas. After we're happy with the design board, we'll send it to vendors to give them an idea of the overall look. 

These boards were the inspiration behind our most recent styled wedding shoot. It took place at a new VRBO and wedding venue called Biddle Ranch Vineyard in the Edna Valley. We are still obsessed with the look of these boards! We were going for a romantic, organic, modern and updated vineyard feel with gorgeous bountiful florals and stunning natural elements to make the venue shine.

Our design boards are used to convey a mood, and we don't copy the images in them exactly. We actually had to nix our bougainvillea idea completely (even though it is very prevalent in the boards) because it was not in season during shooting. Laurel from Adornments Flowers, who designed along with us for this shoot, exceeded our expectations tenfold. See a few sneak peeks on our Instagram of Cameron Ingalls' photos, as well as one of our favorites below..

Stay tuned for a full feature in the next few months, we can't wait to share the entire thing!

Dennis & Susan

Dennis and Susan's wedding took place in a lush Walnut Grove and could not have been more beautiful. We had so much fun designing and coordinating the big day with these two, and filled it with tons of personalized details making it all the more special. To see even more photos, the entire album is in our portfolio!
