We were over the moon excited when Candice reached out to us last year about helping coordinate her & John’s August Leo Carrillo wedding. Her very dear pal and one of our faves Courtney of Brightly Designed was helping her out with all of the details, so we immediately agreed to step in the last few weeks before the wedding and on the actual big day to take the reins and make sure everything went off without a hitch! By far one of the breeziest and most fun weddings of the summer. Who could complain when you get to work with Brightly Designed, She Wanders, and Root 75!? C & J’s wedding is in the current issue of Exquisite Weddings, but also on the Bride Suite blog today! Check out those links & the lovely photos below!
Wowza! Candice is already a stunner, but Brides by Brittany highlighted her features perfectly and really let her gorgeousness shine through on the big day!
Seriously, we have a ton of photos of everyone smiling & giggling through out the whole day, as it should be. NON-STOP BLAST!
For the ceremony decor, a mix of horseshoes with pretty patterned hearts and mason jars filled with flowers and flags that read John loves Candice/Candice loves John hung from the chairs down the aisle. Ashley & Courtney from Brightly Designed also crafted a stunning paper flower backdrop for the ceremony that fit perfectly with the theme and into Leo Carrillo!
Ummm how adorbs are the navy dresses paired with cowboy boots and statement necklaces!? Cute, quirky, and classic all at the same time!
During cocktail hour, brightly colored vases, vintage cigar boxes, & old fashioned liquor bottles adorned the tables to set the mood on the patio for “Hurley’s Pub.”
Mini glass beer boots were used for the escort card display. Guests were asked, “If you’re a pair find your boot to share. If you’re single use yours to mingle.” Too fun!
One of our favorite moments of the night was when the bridal party made their grand entrance. After everyone was announced they stopped by the bartender, who had shots waiting for them, where they all raised their glasses before going bottom’s up! Way to get the party started!
The peacocks were out in full force for the wedding- as seen above! The Brightly Designed gals repurposed C+J’s cute rsvp postcards and strung them with ribbon and hearts to make a killer sweetheart table backdrop for the couple. Gathered vintage items were used as table number holders which were an eclectic mix of wooden numbers and paper printed numbers.
In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple and their guests got their sweet fix with a bundt wedding cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and donuts from VG Bakery. Mmmm! Our kind of desserts!
The guests had a blast drinking & dancing into the night! Congratulations & thanks again to Candice & John for letting us be a part of your special day. HUGE thank-you to two other love birds, Suzanne & Mike from Shewanders for capturing every detail so perfectly, being so fun to work with, and sharing these lovely images!
