Happy 6 Month Anniversary you two!! We’re so glad that not only were we a part of your whooooole wedding planning process, but we get to watch your love and family grow. Head over to Ruffled to read more about the details and inspiration that was behind the big day, and stay tuned for a fabulous DIY on the scale backdrop we made for Jess & Nick’s dessert table.

Big Thank You! to all of these vendors…

Root 75- Gorgeous, stunning, perfect flowers

Brightly Designed- Amazing, creative, and exactly what we envisioned paper elements

Moss Vintage Rentals- Wedding would have not come to life without your beach glass bottles, Love & Bar sign, and all of the vintage pieces used

Wendy Ware- The stunning pieces you made, especially the ceremony sign, were some of our favorite details!

Coast Catering- Um, best wedding food ever. Short Ribs & Mac n Cheese. Enough said.

VG Bakery- No one beats their donuts, pie, or tasty cakes. Blueberry buttermilk bites were gone!

Injoy Entertainment- It got real. Real Crazy Like. Thanks for keeping the dance floor poppin’

Allie’s Party Rentals & La Tavola Linens for all of the rental & specialty items

Sunday Romance- You captured the day & all of the beautiful details; gave us these amazing photos to remember it perfectly by.

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!

It’s Cookie Time! Scout’s Honor Photo Shoot

Seems like it was just yesterday that we were putting the final touches on this shoot. Almost 4 months later and after it’s been featured on Green Wedding Shoes and The Party Press blog, we decided we better share our favorite shots! We get so giddy every time we look at pictures from this one, so you would think we would have had this up asap!  To be honest I think we just didn’t know where to begin. We got SO many amazing pictures back from Katie Scott of Swoon by Katie. Seriously every thing this lady shoots is gold. See below.

The tablescape was definitely a labor of love. We spent hours spray painting the mini lanterns and the canteens, which were camo print in a previous life, and sewing the pink ribbon around the canteens. We also had to remove all the  labels from the glass Strabucks frappuccino drinks that were used as milk milk bottles- but it was all worth it to see it come together!

The lovely ladies over at Blush Botanicals created the most stunning centerpiece for the table! They totally got the vibe we were going for and nailed it. They put together the dreamiest arrangements…..

The table wouldn’t have looked so flawless either without the gorgeous linens provided by Wildflower and the Chiavari Chairs from Allie’s Party Rentals. These details definitely helped create the overall vision.

Can we talk about how awesome all of the paper elements are!? Posh Paperie is amazing to work with- so creative and so enthusistic! Still obsessed with the invites and of course the little mini Beverly Hills esque dessert markers! We die!

Seriously all of these girls are already stunning, but we were so lucky to have  10.11 Make up & Hair  there to get them camera ready. They worked their magic and made the girls look flawless. Love how natural and radiant they all look- check out that killer hair!

Our Bridal Survial Kit read “always be prepared” and was stocked with mini tools for mini emergencies! Safety pins, bobby pins, hair spray, lint roller, breath mints, sewing kit, lotion, eye drops, blotting tissues, band-aids, you name it we had it!

We can’t sing Stevi from Hey There! Cupcake’s praises enough! She is a true artist! If you can dream it she can make it out of cake. Annnd make it taste amazing too! We had “Scout’s Honor Strawberry” cupcakes, “Do-Si-I Do” peanut butter cupcakes, and mini Smore’s cupcakes, in addition to the Girl Scout sash inspired cake! Her attention to detail is unparralled. Love the subtle trefoil pattern on the cake.

Moss Vintage Rentals really helped set the scene with all of their vintage books, dinnerware, and cake plates. Love the table we got to borrow for the dessert station! It was perfect and we couldn’t help thinking it would make an amazing sweetheart table too!

Let us remind you that it was not Girl Scout cookie season when we did this shoot and there were no Samoa’s to come by! Luckily, the kind people of VG Donuts & Bakery  helped us create these delicious homemade versions of the cookie.

Still obsessed with the vintage Girl Scout camera we scored on ebay! Too cute for words….

Big thanks to our wonderful models! We adore you for braving that cold December day and rocking it in the spring outfits we put you in!
