The Big Day: Lauren & Hank!

Happy Friday Beaus! We’re on a sugar high and can’t wait for Lauren & Hank’s sweet day tomorrow! If any couple deserves to be treated it’s these two; seriously they are the definition of sweet. It just so happens that they both are also suckers for sweet treats like pie and ice cream.

Lauren & Hank 2

This gorgeous tent wedding will have some fancy schmancy specialty cocktails, gilded flatware, to-die for florals (um flower chandeliers, what!?), an abundance of baked goods, and some Sweet Lucie’s!! Their guests will sure be spoiled. We also have plenty of eye candy going on, so be sure to stay up with our instagram feed tomorrow, but in the meantime here is the inspiration board for their lovely day.

The Big Day: Joanna & Adam

Okay, we did it again! We went to Palm Springs and forgot to give you a sneak peek of the wedding before it went down. Hopefully this fun and fantasmical  inspiration board will make up for it!? For Joanna & Adam’s big day we brought some whimsy to the desert. A Tim Walker inspired affair complete with stripes, polka dots, floating balloons, pastels and cacti a plenty! What made the day even more perfect were the lovely vendors who made it all possible….

little bit of everything

J&A Sneak

These are our lousy instagram photos above, but we can not wait to see the real deal from the oh so rad Jessica Claire!! That floral goodness you’re eyeballing above is all from Isari. They even polka dotted the little cacti for us!! One of our absolute favorite details was the paper goods from Color Me Carla. Fab and perfectly fitting with the theme linens from La Tavola, and Los Salazar Mariachi to set the mood whilst guests dined on fine fare from Border Grill. Perfection! Wait, perfection was truly the shaved ice from Hula Girls at the end of the night. Mmmm! Loads more pro photos to share and all the juicy details, so stay tuned….

The Big Day: Alana & Tyler!!

It’s Friday and we are grinning ear to ear. That’s what happens when we’re en route to Palm Springs. That’s also what happens when we’re headed into a fun-filled weekend for a RAD wedding. Alana & Tyler are that dream couple that you hope you get to work with and they are of course very very rad. Need some proof? Here’s some goodies we’re incorporating into their big day on Saturday: disco balls. polaroid escort cards. a record wall. a pie bar. fake mustaches. Yup, we’re still grinning.

Alana & Tyler 2

If you couldn’t tell, these two are music lovers. From their record wedding invitations to their band poster table names, this shared love for rock n roll will be weaved throughout their whole day. The cherry on the tippy top of this musical sundae is The Flashdance. Couldn’t think of anyone better to rock out this wedding! Yup, still smiling. Can’t wait for tomorrow and to be working with the lovely Root 75, Honey Honey, Amy Clarke, Lady Dianna, Yeah Rentals, and Son of Sharkpig on this killer Ace Wedding. All this talk got you hot & bothered? Head over to our Pinterest to see what else inspired A&T’s big day and stay tuned to our instagram for some sneak peeks! Promise not to post too many poolside pics

Snapshot Love: Abey & Matt

So glad she was more than happy to have us post her & Matt’s dreamy engagements shot by her best friend, the fabulous Tara McMullen. We’re so excited to have Tara also capturing Abey & Matt’s big day! Now check out all of the romantic goodness below….

Pretty much exactly what you hope & dream your engagements will turn out looking like, right!? Doesn’t hurt if you’re also gorgeous like these two! Abey always looks flawless, but there’s a great story behind why she looks extra radiant. She didn’t think Tara was going to make it to her bridal shower last week being that Abey lives in LA and Tara in Canada. Tara being the awesome pal she is surprised her at the shower and then hired the glam pro- Amy Clarke to doll her up for this impromptu session. Matt was in on it of course! Just amazing. Head over to Tara’s blog to see more pics & to hear the story told much better!

Is your curiosity piqued and you’re just dying to know what’s in store for their Ace Palm Springs nuptials? Well, head on over to check out what we’ve been pinning down for them!

Cramming for The Cream!

We’re pretty Cream filled up in the Beau & Arrow Headquarters and we’re not stopping til Sunday! Finishing up some last minute projects and bringing out the bells & whistles for the big event. We did want to share a sneak peek of our initial inspiration for our tablescape with Bloem Hill for The Cream. We’ve decided to call it “overgrown elegance” and we can’t wait to see it all come together at Vibiana in just a couple of days!

Let us know in the comments below if you would rock this as a real wedding style!? We personally love it- – obviously!

The Big Day: Tracy & Taylor

To say that we have been dying to share the inspiration behind Tracy & Taylor’s wedding would be a HUGE understatement! Their vintage inspired pearls & lace wedding went down this past weekend at Ponte Winery in Temecula and it was such a beautiful day filled with so much happiness & love! It was definitely a day reflective of the couple in every way…

From the very beginning of the design process Tracy & Taylor had a special request for us, to make sure we included their nickname, T&T dynamite. We had SO much fun incorporating this element throughout the day and cannot wait to share more on that! Can you guess from the inspiration above some of the ways we brought that detail in?

This fabulousness was all made possible by the uber talented vendors whose labors of love were apparent on the big day. The gorgeous flowers by Modern Bouquet, the incredible custom paper goods by Pitbulls & Posies, the to die for delicious cake from Sweet & Saucy, swoon inducing vintage glassware from Casa de Perrin, and even more vintage goodies from Found Rentals! Of course, the night would not have been complete without the musical talents of Matt Commerce and the guys at Injoy who kept the party rocking!! Dying to see all of the stunning shots the Swoon by Katie team captured!

The Big Day: Jessica & Nick

Thrilled that today is wedding day would be an understatement!! Our real bride blogger Jessica is getting married and it is a very special wedding for us!! Seems like just yesterday she and Nick got engaged. We’ve been there throughout the entire process and are so elated to see this day come to fruition and to share some sneak peeks behind their beachside celebration.

Jess & Nick love blues & greens, the colors of the ocean. Inspired by beach glass the whole color palette is made up of refreshing & calming shades (seafoam, mint, turquoise) with touches of white and silver. There are some definite nods to Nick’s favorite past time, surfing, and to the places Jess & Nick have traveled together. We didn’t forget about where they each came from though, so there will also be some fun elements that represent their roots. That’s all we can share now, but stay glued to our twitter and instagram and we’re sure you’ll see some more goodies!

Congrats Jess & Nick! We’re so excited for you to start this part of your lives together!!

The Big Day: Erin & Blair

 We are headed out the door for a fun-filled wedding weekend at our most favorite of places…Ace Hotel Palm Springs!! Knew that it was meant to be with this couple when they listed donuts and margaritas as must-haves! Expect to see lots of those as well as some rockin’ mid century furniture, a pennant flag (or 200), and sequins!!

We have loved every single second of planning & designing with Erin & Blair and can’t believe it is all coming together tomorrow on the big day. We feel even luckier that some of the absolute best gals around are contributing their talents to this hip soiree as well, Brightly Designed & Root 75!!  Cherry on the tippy top of this ice cream sundae is that Kimberly Geneieve Photography will be in the desert with us to too to capture all of the fun. Seriously check out her website!
