Boho Rehearsal Picnic

We love a good styled shoot. Not only are we able to work with our fav vendors (shout out to our besties!), but were able to be super creative and help brides think outside of the box, ahem, restaurant in this case. Me being 8 and half months preggo and about to pop, I wanted to get one last shoot in with great vendors. Almost like a baby moon, but for the wedding obsessed.

La Jolla is know for it’s breath taking views & amazing weather. We wanted to take a break from ordinary and go for a rehearsal dinner OUTSIDE. Keeping things relaxed, laid back, and fun.Mr. & Mrs. Wedding Duo_Seven Stems 30

With floor seating, and mismatched table wear, our rehearsal picnic is what Boho Chic dreams are made of. All under the stars and market lights. Letting the party flow with some glow. SD Social Lights rocked this set up as usual. Thanks Boys!

Creating a look this effortless is easy when you get great rentals, like we did from Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals. Add in some great decor, like lanterns, candlesticks, amber glass,  mixed metals and of course our favorite, perfect blooms! Our base colors were brown, tan, blus, and creams. Giving us the freedom to add pops of colors throughout without getting lost. This created a beautiful flow that we absolutely adore.

Opting for floor seating meant taking our table to the next level. Plush comfy pillows surround our perfect tablescape. Mismatched place settings set upon lush greenery. Done & Done.

Candles, votives and blooms completed the bohemian vibe.

Eucalyptus and ferns, created a runner, accented with blooms, gave us the perfect balance.

Our girls at Petals & Stone provided all our models accessories. We cant get enough of her hair piece. Or our model, how gorgeous she!?

Our favorite part of the shoot was the photo backdrop. Part macrame dream catcher, part photo op, 100% RAD!

When talking parties, you can’t forgot the dessert. What’s a party without it? Our cake from Sweet Cheeks Baking Company, surely didn’t disappoint. With it’s square shape and adorable cactus detail, and macrame details, we were in love!

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.
