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

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!

On the front page of Snippet & Ink!

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

"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?
