Bringing Sexy Back

sextback2

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.

Whatever your big day style may be, make sure it’s truly yours. It’s a recipe sure to make her fall in love all over again.

Colorful Wine Country Destination Wedding

K+A_BannerImage@sevenstemsKat + Andrew were SO much fun to work with. Being in Texas, they were planning a destination wedding, and what better place to plan one than in San Diego’s own wine country? Temecula is known for its gorgeous year round weather, and perfect pallet for design. Making each wedding unique.

The couple wanted to keep things classic with tones such as ivory, creams and blush with pops of color. We went with coral, hot pink and rose gold. With peonies being the bride’s favorite, we knew this color palette would be the perfect match.  Making  Ponte Winery stand out and a match made in heaven.

A vintage chandelier adorn with bright blooms set the tone during the ceremony, and white hobnail jars rounded the look nestled along the aisle, creating a classy yet rustic feel.

You can never go wrong with mixed length dresses, especially in blush tones. This is definitely one of my favorite looks.

Geronimo balloons are my absolute most loved detail to incorporate. And the ladies over at Paper Fox LA created a custom garland from our color palette. RAD!

Keeping with our seamless look and fun details, the tablescapes were kept subtle with pops of bright pinks and oranges.  The head table didn’t disappoint with LOVE all around.

This dessert display took the party to a whole new level! Sprinkles cupcakes, Cakes to Celebrate and Botegga Louie macaroons, in rich jewel tones topped off the night! Yes, please!

With the bride and groom being together for over 10 years (OMG!) before tying the knot, this wedding was the perfect way to show how fun love can truly be.
