Modern Metallics

Although we love the sweet pinks and pretty pastels of many weddings and events, we know that our grooms sometimes are not on board for an over the top feminine wedding. Yes ladies this is his day too! So keeping all the Mr.’s out there in mind we came up with some inspiration so that both he and she can feel equally represented on their big day. With a hint of mixed metallic glam for the ladies and a sleek and clean modern feel for the men, we think any couple can agree on this stunning event, we hope you agree as well!

Monday Morning Mix: Takes Me To Paradise

In the words of Mae West, “Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!” Although we’ve been listening to Bruno Mars “Locked Out Of Heaven” on repeat since the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, we just can’t get enough! Something else we can’t get enough of currently is the wonderful summer-like weather we’ve been experiencing in SoCal these past few days. This heat streak should carry on for another week, so we will carry on singing with Mars about paradise and dreaming of what exactly that would look like…..

year6A HUGE thank you to all of the vendors, readers, family, friends, and couples who made this year and these images possible. We can not wait to see what 2013 brings for Beau & Arrow Events and hope you will all stay tuned here to find out as well.

Glam Winter Wedding Inspiration

What’s black & white and glam all over? This fabulous dreamt up winter wedding filled with classic style & playful details!! Nod to your timeless tastes with soft blush and white flowers and a simple elegant dress, but spike the punch by infusing fun & unique touches throughout the reception (a la the striped tent & quirky popcorn snacks!). Could not think of a better way to spend an early winter weekend (or perhaps New Year’s Eve) than at an over the top glamourous and lavish wedding! Don’t forget the breathtaking sparkler exit in a vintage car for the ultimate send-off!

Any beaus planning a fabulous winter wedding!? Please share details you are incorporating!

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!

Monday Morning Mix: Autumn Sweater

Happy November Beaus! We’re so excited about the crisp weather and reemergence of sweaters and boots into our daily wardrobe, that we just had to dedicate a Monday Morning Mix to one of our favorite seasons! Hope you love this inspiration board chock full of Fall hues. Would love to see some bridesmaids rock burnt orange– wouldn’t you!?

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!

High Fashion Inspiration: Christian Louboutin

How could we not have a high fashion inspiration during one of the most sacred times in the wonderful world of fashion, New york city Fashion week. We have been keeping a close eye on all of the stunning 2013 collections that have been gracing the runways in New york and have been loving every bit of what we have seen. But our true designer sole mate is this week’s high fashion inspiration; Christian Louboutin. The French shoe creator, Louboutin has made his mark on the fashion world with his signature “Sammy red sole” and sky high sex kitten heels. Combining that sexy sleek style and the bold energy of the louboutin signature red, we have created one red hot wedding…

The Big Day: Kristen & Jeff!

Remember this too cute for words couple? Well, their big day is going down this weekend!! We’ve loved every minute of planning and designing with these two & can’t believe it’s going to be over. Think we might have to find an excuse to keep hanging out with them…Maybe we’ll bump into Jeff at Crossfit or have a shopping trip with Kristen at the mall!?

Check out what’s in store for their wedding at Anthology this weekend. Sequin pillows, sequin adorned vases, kraft wrapped flowers, kraft menus, and oodles of paper flowers!!! Can’t wait to share all of the details from their special day. Boy, will there be great photos like their engagements to share. They have one amazing team capturing all the memorable moments, Ja Tecson Photography. It’s going to be the BEST DAY EVER!

High Fashion Inspiration: Anna Sui

Happy Wednesday Beaus! Today we’re serving you up some more designer inspiration for weddings & parties! This week it’s all about  mix-master Anna Sui. Just like Anna’s aesthetic, be daring with how you style your party and use glossy black accents everywhere you can. Black & white stripes and mixed patterns pair perfectly to achieve the eclectic, yet pulled together touch; very reminiscent of the looks always shown on her runway shows. Taking a cue from the designer’s branding, go Art Nouveau with your paper goods and use decorative touches and borders on your invites and escort cards. If you really wanna be a showstopping hostess, string these awesome diamond lights above the dining table to awe your guests. Bright flowers and macaroons add a pop of color & fun! The Sui girl is all about having a good time….
