Trend Spot: Bright Blooms


With Spring in full swing we’ve had our eye on a hot trend: Bright Beautiful Blooms!!

We adore this look, especially when the weather warms up. Don’t be afraid of color! Be bold! And let us get to work.

This sweetheart table has the perfect balance of mixed metals, eclectic votives and a lush centerpiece. Eucalyptus green foliage filled, surrounded with a variety of dahlias, garden roses, and spray roses , organically shaped, topped off this urn perfectly.


Our recent Bride’s have taken this Spring look to the next level. With a fresh color palate, and rich, saturated blooms. We are literally eating up this trend.

Simplicity can make a huge impact, just look at this fabulous arch, adorned with coral peonies, blush garden roses and hanging amaranthus.


Bouquets are such a huge part of your  Big Day and this one deserved a standing ovation, it is absolutely gorgeous! Vibrant pinks popped against the ivory and blush. Such a fresh spring look!


One of our all time favorite’s is Kat’s Jaw Dropper bouquet. Filled with coral harm peonies, poppies and sherbet dahlias, HEAVENLY.

We think incorporating color throughout adds so much fun to your space, and demands your guest’s attention.For this wedding we wanted lots of color with gold and cream accents. Sundrop Vintags Rentals has the most amazing collection of  vintage glass goblets, of course we needed to have every color! To keep things from being over whelming we had each table in the same color scheme. Giving the off the tropical modern vibe while staying cool.


Trust us, you want texture, you want variety and NEED color!


We loved how Melissa & David weren’t afraid to take color to the next level. Opting for whimsical bright colors for their carnival themed wedding. The bright dahlias, stock, pin cushions and roses against the ivory hydrangea really made things pop!


When choosing blooms for your big day, keep things bright, and full of texture with a neutral base. Giving you that bold look while not getting lost in all the pretties. We loved springing for bright colors, it truly makes an impact! So excited to see what the Summer will bring 😉



Charmingly Chic Estate


Weddings are super fun and full of love. But these two radiate love and happiness. Maybe it was their ear to ear smiles or stealing quick looks, but these two couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Just the way we like it!


Chelsea + Scott’s wedding truly warmed our hearts. Seeing a mother’s love for her son and a father’s love for his daughter blend together in one day is truly a magical moment.


From her amazing dress to her perfect bouquet full of dahlias to their seemingly effortless ceremony, Chelsea + Scott’s wedding was one our faves.We loved how their ceremony + reception all took place at her families Fallbrook Estate. The home was beyond beautiful and it was nestled in the s mountains surrounded with ridiculous views. This kept things super intimate.


Chelsea had a vision of “Rustic chic” mixed chairs with accents of black, white and taupe.  Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals and Design, helped create the perfect space. Creating an effortless rustic look for the day. A clean color palette of black, ivory & cream kept things clean and simple. Perfect.


Having a solid color scheme and natural wood, gives the space an eclectic feel without being over whelming. Don’t be afraid to mix it up.

There’s always a little chuckle when we go over the Timeline, on  how little time the guys need to get ready. Scott won the award. The guys played golf all day and were onsite 1 hour till Ceremony, took 20 minutes to get ready. Literally! With time to spare. We caught them enjoying the calm before the storm. Guys are so lucky!

thumb_163A9416_1024We just love Scott & and his dudes rocked simple gingham shirts paired with slacks and vests. Such a fresh look.thumb_163A9378_1024



We went with our favorite local boothers,  Mobile Photo Booth. Fun, vintage, and pretty booths. Yep, I said it, pretty and their booths are just that. If you haven’t checked them 0ut, you need to. They are always smiling, have the best vibes and make the booth more than just a booth.


Props like mustaches and giant lips never disappoint.



We designed the bouquets in blush and ivory tones, with lots of textured greens. Adding to the overall design and complimenting the Bridesmaids mixed dresses. Keeping them the same draws attention without competing with the overall look.

This group of ladies have been forever friends, and are gorgeous inside and out.

The night ended in the way is should, mini pies, cupcakes, cocktails and dancing! Jays Catering never disappoints with all their yummies. Guests had a blast all night!

So. Much. Fun.



From charmingly sweet details to a night full of dancing & laughter Chelsea + Scott’s wedding was epically perfect! All you need is love rings true when you blend the perfect mixture of love, happiness, & family.

Bringing Sexy Back


We’ve had some stop you in your tracks, gorgeous brides. But lets face it, the boys these days are taking the “Groomed” look to another level. From California Casual to GQ esque suits, our Grooms prove that style is just as important to the boys.


Long gone are the days of the oversized suit. Grooms  are bringing their own to the” Big Day”. From dark denim + suspenders to classic black and everything in between, the only rule to follow when searching for the perfect groomed look, is to make sure your personality shines through.


One of our favorite looks is Dustin’s subtle plaid coat paired with black slacks & camel shoes. Totally fresh! This allows him to showcase his funky style while still letting the Bride shine. Love.



Derek was one who knew what look he wanted, and he knocked it out of the park. A dark charcoal suit + thin tie + pocket square = HOT! There really is nothing better than a fitted suit, especially in a timeless color. Done & done.



Talk about  bringing style to the big day. These grooms did just that with a fun tie + wingtips. Classic meet funky. You’re welcome.

Another way to stand out is to wear a color, no boring black here. Karim and his guys went with a deep navy suite and purple accents. They had me at Hello.


We couldn’t have a groom style post without showing the classic fitted black suit + bow tie. Timeless & oh so chic.
