Monday Morning Mix: Love is Blindness

Although we don’t need any assistance getting into the Halloween spirit, the foggy weather lately has definitely helped set the tone for this week’s festivities. We’re going dark this year, real dark; and in honor of one of our favorite holidays and musicians we dreamed up this mystical, magical, moon-beam, black and white filled wedding inspiration aptly titled Love is Blindness. We’re seeing this wedding with overgrown blooms and fruits dangling off the vines, celestial decor, headpieces with enveloping veils, pounds on pounds of antique lace, and a bevy of  bottles adorned with old fashion labels.  But seriously how cool would it be to have a tarot card reader at your wedding!?

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.

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.

Monday Morning Mix: Pumpkin Spice & Golden Light

October is well under way and we’re excited to be putting our pumpkins out. One of our favorite things about Fall is of course the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but what we really enjoy most is the crisp air and golden light that sets this season apart from all others. We can’t complain about Fall in Southern California- it really is as good as gold.

So it’s no surprise that we have our fair share of weddings this year (and already booked up for next October too!), but what we really wanna know is if anyone is incorporating Fall decor (pumpkins, leaves, wheat, etc.) into their big day!? Tell us what your favorite part of Fall is!

Friday Feature: Daughters of Simone

There are moments during wedding planning that simply take your breath away. One of them being the moment you  find “the dress.”  We were certainly short of breath when we stumbled across these super cute, but slightly unconventional wedding dresses.

Now that you’ve secured a man, and got a ring on that finger, it’s time to find a dress that is the perfect match too! With these vintage-inspired dresses designed by Daughters of Simone, you really can’t go wrong. Finally a designer taking our favorite fashion blasts from the past (60s & 70s!!) and translating those trends into wearable bridal attire.  The San Francisco based company designs wedding dresses that have a modern bohemian vibe, but are as timeless and treasurable as a family heirloom. This is one dress your daughter wouldn’t be embarrassed to later inherit!

Above are some of the latest designs from their 2014 collection, aptly called “Ritual Woman” (Hello Heart & Stevie Nicks!!). Our fave dresses include: Lu, Caterina, Dylan, and Cleo. Each dress is designed for a different type of woman in mind; from classic, to indie, rock n roll, country, or hippie, they all are unique.
