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.

Behind the Scenes of B&A: May

All photos by yours truly except for Top Left & Bottom Left are Logan Cole and Middle Bottom is one of our lovely interns, Justine Breen! Flowers seen in photos all done by the lovely Root 75. Love those gals!

The Big Day: Alison & Shaun!

We are beyond excited for this weekends Luce Loft wedding in Downtown San diego for the happy couple Alison & Shaun! This couple had our hearts when they told us their color palette of pale pink, nudes, white and dove gray.  These stunning colors helped to soften and luxe up the unbelievable industrial loft space that they chose for their venue. We absolutely adore Alison & Shaun’s design style of a little bit of modern mixed with subtile elegance but not in a stuffy way! Take a look below for some snippets you may see at their actual big day!

Alison & Shaun Inspiration

Not only are we beyond thrilled for this happy couple to get married and for the beautiful design elements, we cant wait to work with some of our favorite vendors again on this wedding. Luce loft will help to set the parties fun and funky ton and get the guests oohing and awing! Of course there will be no short supply of stunning Root75 flowers all around the venue, we just cant get enough of those ladies. To add to the fun guests will be served out of the awesome curiocity food truck and drink the night away with cocktails by Kevin’s bartending. All of the stunning photo’s will be captured by the one and only Logan Cole who can’t take a bad photo if he tried and even his iPhone instagram photo’s are better than any photo we could ever take with a couple thousand dollar camera. Awesome tunes will be supplied by the always amazing injoy entertainment.  And last but certainly not least Poetry booth will have guests snapping fun photo’s all night long!

The Big Day: Raqel & Madison

You’ll be seeing a lot of these posts in the upcoming weeks, but boy are we excited to share all about the weddings we’re working on! Most of these we’ve been planning for many many months, however every once and a while a dream wedding rolls around  that makes you say “sure, we can plan that in less than two months.” Best decision we made- Raqel and Madison are sweeter than apple pie and are the coolest kids you will meet.

Raqel + Madison

They selected Marvimon House as their wedding venue for it’s charming quirkiness & quickly formulated an amazing color palette based off of their favorite colors, which also happened to be existing throughout the space. The day will include inky blues, lush greens, cinnamon and coffee accents with beautiful blush pinks. Both being huge flower lovers, you can bet we’re going to hang a garland wherever we can. Can’t wait to see what those crafty Root 75 gals come up with! We’re also excited to be working with LaMill for a fun coffee bar to nod at their first date. If there’s coffee…count us in!

Can’t wait to share the photos from Logan Cole and the wedding film from Brinton Films of their big day. As always, stay in touch with our instagram for sneaky peeks!

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 inspiration-1

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

Candice & John’s Wedding!!

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!

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!

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.

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!

Erin & Blair’s Wedding!

This week has been an exciting one! We’re still reeling from our recent feature on 100 Layer Cake of Erin & Blair’s super gorgeous & fun Palm Springs wedding! Check out the feature here & head over to We Call This Love’s blog for more stunning photos of the big day.

Erin was an absolute dream to work with. As the owner of two boutiques in Canada (Emporia & Violette), she not only has amazing style & taste, but is one busy, busy lady! We were so glad we got to plan + design this beautiful wedding for her & Blair from start to finish! Since the couple lives in Canada we got to take some fun visits to the Ace in their name. We like everyone else, quickly fell in love with the space, and were inspired on how we could transform it into the couple’s relaxed, but glam dream wedding!

Our favorite detail, of course, was interweaving Erin & Blair’s first dance song (“You’re The One” by The Black Keys) into special signage & favors. Love that it was a significant song to them, that also had the sweetest message. It was a labor of love to create the 100s of feet of custom bunting in mint, pale pink, & gold, as well as, the fringe chair backs that adorned each guests’ chair. In the end these elements really helped transform the Ace commune into a rad reception.

The amazing & talented crop of folks working on this wedding blew our minds.

Obsessing majorly over the custom CD favors, gold foiled menus, cursive cut-out table names, and absolutely perfect custom wall decal that Courtney from Brightly Designed created.

The flowers will definitely live on in our hearts forever. The dynamic duo of Root 75 created just the most perfect & fitting flowers for this event. Did you see the desert table arrangements? Gah, that’s what dreams are made of!!

Shout out to VG Donuts for letting us custom color & sprinkle those bad boys that were devoured oh so quickly.

To the make up master, Amy Clarke, for making Erin & her gals look SO dang gorgeous. Erin’s mama shed tears of joy after Amy was done working her magic!

The night ended just as an it should have, with crazy dancing and bridesmaids in the pool!

Thanks again to We Call This Love for these awesome shots!
