I am proud to say this shoot has been a long-awaited first feature for us in 2014! WE *loved* concepting the details and elements of this colorful shoot alongside of our fabulous partners over at Your Cloud Parade! The idea was to highlight all the amazing spaces at the Saguaro Hotel out in Palm Springs [and trust me, when you see the property in person you cannot help but smile and want to simultaneously paint your house every color imaginable… it just comes with the territory]. So, we crafted a party that was meant to celebrate color, and make you smile just as much as the hotel does when you’re there lounging in the pool [trust me, you smile whilst lounging… you have to].

And a quick preview of what you’ll find in the feature:

We did all the graphics in-house and wanted something that felt edgy/funky- still fitting the feel of the wedding day [I love a good classic theme brought up to speed through detail, style and color]. These tote bags that Wedding Chicks supplied us with fit the bill perfectly!

A little “pre ceremony” snack box is always a favorite detail. These came bursting with cool refreshing drinks, pull-out ribbon streamers and plexiglass programs in multiple, delicious colors. Naturally, adorable.

Rotating monochromatic place settings [charger, napkin, menu card, and cushion] with clear chairs and…. a vinyl table cuff. I nearly died over that color splash detail! And one for the road: the full bridal party. I cannot emphasize enough how much I LOVE styling bridal parties. These lace overlay skirts were custom made for the shoot. And I mean, really you guys. That’s all I can say about that.

Here’s the full feature, so check it out and see more! And be sure to visit Your Cloud Parade if you’re looking to bring some creative detail elements to your big day, too!

As always, I am humbled and thankful for the continual support of my creativity that this industry offers me. Thrilled to continue doing what I love, year after year.

xoxo,

Oh, Vera!

POSTED BY Amanda

Color me surprised when I stumbled across this article that features Vera Wang’s 2014 Bridal Collection. I was in shock and awe and pure elation when I saw them all. You see, her theme color seems to be PINK! Shades of rose, coral and warm pink. And I am ON board! Where are my gals that want non-traditional dresses at?! Hit up a Vera salon and try some on!!

Whether you’re excited by the color tones or not [as I’m sure they’re offered in muted shades of white and ivory], you must admit that the silhouettes are just as daring, flattering and gorgeous as Ms. Vera has come to be known for. I personally would squeal to see these in person!

Here’s to showing your own true colors today!!

xoxo,

For some reason [aside from the fact that the bride and groom, now seasoned marriage pros, are beyond words adorable], this wedding continues to get featured and re-featured still years later. Irene and Aaron tied the knot back in 2011 and we still get to share pictures of their wonderful day! They wed at the gorgeous Saddlerock Ranch up in Malibu, with a modern-meets-natural feel that focused on saturated POP colors against the wooded backdrop. Truly, a favorite [and not just for the late night customized beer pong tables that Irene had us create as a surprise for her groom]- a favorite night, a favorite couple, a favorite love story. Featurable and shareable for decades to come. Go take a sneak peek over at My Inspired Wedding and give big sighs as you wipe the tears away. Thanks, as always to Ian Grant Photography for the images and for getting them out there so well! Here’s a few snaps from the feature….

We were honored to do this couple’s floral design along with event design and [although we’ve retired floral services for the foreseeable future] absolutely adore how amazing the turnout was! Possibly my favorite bright, popping bridal bouquet ever composed! So glad the rest of the internet seems to be enjoying their fairytale, too!

xoxo,

Yay! I am so so so honored [to say the least] that our modern art gallery vow renewal photoshoot made it into the Favorite Wedding Details of 2013 from the team over at Green Wedding Shoes! I loved the shoot and it’s thrilling to know that others do, too!! Jump on over to their post to see the rest of the details that they picked, or you can just go visit the Green Wedding Shoes feature instead and see ALL of the lovelies that Jasmine Star captured for us.

And, even though this feature was focusing on the details, the model family [who are near and dear friends] are just TOO cute not to show off- so here’s a little ode to Jesse and Renae!!

Thanks again for all the love we continue to feel. We are thankful, we are grateful, we are humbled.

xoxo,

Claire and Steve are a couple that I can only describe as ferociously in love. When I think back on my months of helping plan their gorgeous seaside nuptials, I remember Steve’s protective heart more than anything else. He loves her, he wants nothing but the deepest desires of her heart to be met- and he works tirelessly to ensure she’s taken care of in any way he can. A true knight in shining armor [especially in that dapper tux on his wedding day], Steve is out of a fairly tale- and I can say no less of Claire! The perfect delicate, ladylike picture of beauty. She was always certain of things she loved, and quick to point out what wasn’t working. A marriage of two people with these traits is one that I hope and pray will continue with the same intense beauty that was so evident on their wedding day. Because the world needs couples like this. The world needs more of Claire and Steve, and I’m here to show it. Set at a phenomenal private estate in Laguna Beach, their day was nothing short of magical…

Claire’s cinderella dress [which she continually said she was “so surprised” she liked the shape of] was beyond amazing on her petit frame! It was such a highlight!

Beyond cute together, right?! Their chuppa had a ridiculously beautiful backdrop of the coastline [the estate itself has more than a 180* ocean venue… truly, you have to physically turn yourself to see the entire view- and it is breath-taking!].

Claire and her mom have the most adorably tender relationship, and during the ceremony, there was no shortage of tears shed and truly heartfelt moments. So thankful that they had the incredible Jasmine Star documenting the day!

The first of so so many “cannot-keep-their-hands-off-each-other” moments of the day!

Because every ocean view estate needs a good Secret Garden for portraits…. of course, we enjoyed stolen moments there!

Love their love.

The details at this day were so so fun! I think the thing I love the most about weddings is that each clients’ needs are so different and specific, they are all beautiful in an alternating way. Claire dreamed of romance and regality, and that is what was created. This was one of 3 monogrammed bars during the cocktail hour and reception!

Their place settings did NOT disappoint. Hand-painted chargers in a milky blush pink were adorned with each guests’ name in gold script, custom menu cards with brooch wraps, scented candle favors were tucked into tiny boxes, crystal stemware…. it was a good day. I’m telling you.

Kim from Art With Nature was a perfect choice for the floral and design eye at this one, and I was beyond excited to pair with her! She always knocks it out of the park when it comes to loose, garden-inspired beautiful designs that are every bit as decadent as they are lush. I am truly obsessed with her work.

Another fun little detail- we did pre-ceremony bottled sparkling pink lemonade [with custom labels] for the guests that arrived on the shuttle early… a way to beat that summer heat and enjoy a little treat doing so! I realize how much I rhymed back there and I kept it in there anyway!

During their first dance, they smooched endlessly as their 9-piece live band wailed away. Since this was literally 6 days after my sweet baby was born- I missed some of these moments [yes, I WAS there for 1/2 the day and I DID come back after dinner to check on things- because I am a crazy person], so seeing them caught forever by Jasmine made my heart burst with joy.

We had little vignettes of lounge furniture with monogrammed pillows that were too cute for words! But the details went well beyond anything I’m even showing here- there’s a full feature over on Style Me Pretty that showcases the rest of the incredible day! And just in case you needed a little more love in your day…

Surrounded by those they hold dear, dancing the night away and singing along to their band, with aching feet and full hearts- that is how EVERY wedding day should end. That is what we get to take with us at the end of it, people! I am so incredibly honored to help make these memories with our couples. To share in that joy is what my life is about- so, to my darlings Claire and Steve: we love you, we miss you, we’ll do it all again for you both whenever you are ready to renew those vows!!

Keep one another close and keep growing old together. Today and always!

xoxo,

A Little Pretty…

POSTED BY Amanda

Just a little snip of pretty from a recent shoot I did with a friendly vendor fellow of mine for Koyal Wholesale:

Basically, they sent me a couple boxes of their products and gave me 3 days to turn it into a shoot that they could use in their product catalog that would show their products grouped together in a real-life event setting! It was right up my alley and seriously so SO fun!

I have always been obsessed with a good, clean overhead shot and Jack *delivered* for me on that end. Love it!

Thanks again to my sweet, sweet friend Jack Rodriguez for being so incredibly DEPENDABLE [meaning, there for me last minute when this shoot came up, bringing his KILLER talent and not disappointing ever in his photo work, and having a great attitude as I ran circles around him styling piece after piece to ensure our vendor had options for their catalog]. He’s great. Honestly, I just don’t have enough words. And he does weddings, too [equally great at that. Trust.]! And thanks to Koyal for the fun challenge this time around- can’t wait for more in the future!!

xoxo,

I am thrilled and honored whenever I get asked to do something a bit different. So when I got approached directly by Evite, asking for me to design a birthday party [which turned into not one, but TWO individual shoots], I squealed with delight. I mean really- who am I to have anyone approach me?! I think anyone in a self-made business feels that way. But truly, my business is client-made, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am beyond grateful for it. The feature showcases our Super Mario Brothers party with a fun little edgy twist [I mean, gold stud table trim?! I die!]. Here’s a link to the full page, but just to give you a taste….

I also got to design and concept some FUN activities that are Super Mario inspired for the kids- so don’t forget to look through all the images [from the feature and beyond]. Seriously, so fun! Talk about a blast from the past [and from my pixelated youth… Oregon Trail anyone?!].
