Angela & Nealon's Biddle Ranch Wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty

Angela & Nealon's 'Chinese American Wedding with a Bold Dose of Color' is featured today on Style Me Pretty!

This wedding was so much fun to plan and design, not only because of our sweet couple, but because we loved the color palette so much. It's not often when a bride comes to us wanting a color palette we haven't seen all over Pinterest! So when Angela told us she loved lavender and rouge, we were hooked. See below for a few of our favorites from the day. Kelsea Holder captured everything effortlessly!

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!

Stephanie + Jared featured on MARTHA STEWART WEDDINGS!

Today we are SO incredibly honored and excited to have our wedding featured on

Martha Stewart Weddings!!

If you don't know by now, Lovelyfest is made up by two sisters. Me (Stephanie) and my older sister, Natalie. We have been designing weddings now for exactly four years- our anniversary was yesterday! And one of our biggest dreams came true; we got a wedding featured on Martha! And not just any wedding, but my very own wedding day, when I got to marry my best friend. 

To read more in detail about our big day, and where we came up with our wedding design, head over to the Martha Stewart Weddings blog! The editors at MSW asked us to describe our day in detail and they did such a fantastic job of putting it all together.

Our friend Mirelle Carmichael was there to capture our whole day (a lot of it with film photography, too!) and we are beyond impressed with her skills. Each photo she took is intentional, detailed, and captures all the emotions of our day. We will cherish these photos forever. We've posted a few here, but to see the full album from our wedding, head to our Portfolio! Please excuse us for the excessive amounts of photos. When you receive thousands of photos back from your photographer, it's tough to narrow it down! And for a full list of vendors who made our wedding special, scroll to the bottom of this post. 

We've thought about sharing more about the planning process behind our wedding, which we might do so here on the blog in the future (if we get any requests!). But for now, we'd love to share one planning decision we made that we will never regret. And that is hiring a videographer. Cameron Ingalls is not only one of our good friends, but he is an amazing photographer and videographer! We hired him on to do our video and we are so glad we did. See for yourself, below!
