Ellery & Rarig's Los Olivos Wedding Featured on California Wedding Day!

Ellery and Rarig got married on the perfect summer day last July, at the Crossroads Estate in Los Olivos, and today their wedding is featured on the California Wedding Day blog! 

We were so honored to help plan and design their beautiful wedding day. These two were an absolute dream to work with, and were SO in love with each other. They were calm, cool, and collected on the wedding day and seemed to soak in every moment! 

The outdoor ceremony was under the most beautiful grand oak tree, and Ellery looked absolutely stunning! Her bridesmaids were all gorgeous as well, making for some beautiful shots! We love how Alexandra Wallace captured their wedding day, the photos have a romantic sense to them, and they are light, airy, and beautiful. 

The reception took place at Firestone Vineyards, just down the road from Crossroads. Dinner was held inside the prettiest courtyard with ivy lined walls, and twinkle lights strung overhead. It was such a magical venue! The design of Ellery and Rarig's wedding was classic, simple elegance. White, gold, and green were the colors that made up their palette, and we had fun creating timeless and beautiful decor for their big day.

We chose textured linens in an array of different patterns, but all in the same neutral color scheme. These linens were complimented by white and green florals from Anna Le Pley Taylor, bringing just the right amount of contrast to the dining tables. For the escort display, we hand wrote each guest's name and table number on a six foot tall Embellish Vintage Rentals gold mirror. This was a labor of love and so much fun to complete! We had a fabulous team of vendors with us on this wedding that we cannot thank enough. Thank you California Wedding Day for allowing us to re-live these memories!

Featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

Today our Gal Pal Campfest at the Tinkertin Trailer Co. Trailer Pond is featured up on Green Wedding Shoes! We put so much love behind this shoot and are so excited to finally share it!

Of all the details we made for this shoot, this balloon installation was definitely a highlight. Balloons aren't the easiest to work with, and that proved to be especially true over water, but we did not give up and are so pleased with how it came out! It added such a fun touch to the pond that really gave that 'bachelorette party' vibe!

This campsite full of restored vintage trailers from Tinkertin Trailer Co. is the most perfect venue for a bachelorette. You can make it as camp-like as you want, but for us, we made it girly, fun, and comfortable! With acrylic invitations, abundant florals, a mandala selfie wall, the most plush and stylish lounge, acrylic mandala place cards, and of course gorgeous bridesmaids, it all came together so wonderfully. We are so thankful to all our vendor friends who helped us put this shoot together. Our designs would be nothing without you all!

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!
