Holiday Event: 4th of July Party Styling

Here’s a little 4th of July party styling just in time for our patriotic holiday coming up! Our annual Family 4th of July event was full of red, white, blue, and lots happiness.

Our favorite part of this set up was the lavish hanging dessert display. We brought in these amazing wood cabana's from Farm Tables and More and designed hanging shelves full of yummy desserts stacked by Sweet 101. It was a huge hit with the entire family and the desserts were not only tasty and gluten free but a beautiful combination of red, white and blue to stay within theme. 

We loved creating the beautiful tablescape with AE Floral. We really played off the Farm to Table feel with lush greens, garden herbs, blue accents, and a few festive hints of red floral to add in the patriotic pop of color. 

The family enjoyed an amazing night filled with fantastic food, custom craft cocktails, beautiful views, and an evening full of good laughs. Happy 4th of July and enjoy your evening in patriotic style wherever it may take you! 

A HUGE thank you to Cavin Elizabeth for the great images!

Wedding Wednesday: Marianne and Shane's Garden Inspired Wedding

Marianne and Shane’s wedding was truly such an incredible celebration of their love for each other. We were so thrilled to be a part of their big day and throughout the entire design process. We loved helping sweet Marianne bring her love for natural beauty and loads of fun throughout their entire wedding day. 

Marianne and Shane’s day was full of so much love and fun from morning till night. The decor was filled with a secret garden vibe, romantic florals and greenery done so right by Annette Gomez. We had a slightly different color palette for each location. The ceremony was light in creams, ivories and peaches to compliment the bridesmaids gray dresses perfectly. We introduced a brighter and more playful color palette for cocktail hour then, the tented reception was dripping in beautiful lush greens with florals in full bloom everywhere. The guest spent the rest of their evening mingling and dancing the night away with Marianne, Shane and the rocking Might Untouchables! 

We loved all the pretty little details of this garden inspired wedding. From the white hemstitched napkins, dipped raw silk ribbon, custom monogram coasters, and not to mention the beautifully overflowing goodies table! Also, if you are totally thinking the print work is so DARLING…  you’re right, it is! We love all work created by the talented Suzy with Dear Darling Calligraphy Co. The close attention to detail is simply and effortlessly stunning. Aaron Huniu Photography and Taylor Films filmed every second to share and they did a beautiful job - take a peek below!

Congratulations, Shane and Marianne we wish you many many years of love, happiness and tons of adventure together.

Love Is In The Air: Olivia and Jeff's Engagement Session

Love is in the air over here at Before I Do events! We are so thrilled for one of our beautiful team members Olivia and her fiancé Jeff on their upcoming wedding! We are in love with their dreamy, fun and light-filled engagement session with Aaron Huniu Photography.

Jeff and Olivia met when they were set up on a blind date in 2011 by a mutual friend. The only words of encouragement offered up to the two by this mutual friend were "It won't be so bad..". Well, it turned out she was right, it wasn't so bad at all, it was GREAT! 

Five years of dating later, Jeff proposed to Liv at their home in Encinitas on New Year's Eve. Jeff had invited both of their families there to surprise Liv and to make the occasion even more special for the couple! 

Liv and Jeff chose to take their engagement photos in the darling surf town of Encinitas, which they call home. Encinitas is so special to them as a couple; they bought their first home there and spend almost every weekend there. They loved both exploring the hidden parts of Encinitas they had never seen before and a few of their old favorite spots with Aaron. They even had a passerby question Aaron asking, "Who are they?", assuming only celebrities would have their picture taken while drinking beers on a Sunday! 

We love you Liv and cannot wait for your wedding!! All the best wishes to this beautiful and joyful couple!! oxoxo

Wedding Wednesday: Sara and John's Intimate Wedding

Sara and John’s wedding day is one that we’ll never forget! Sara and John were fantastic to work with. Together as a team they were involved with the planning from day one. Their wedding day was a true reflection of the two of them and their relationship. We all had a complete blast designing and planning their dream wedding together. Take a peek below, it’s beautiful! 

Sara and John were full of love and such a happy bride and groom on this beautiful summer day. Sara’s cinderella gown and Johns bowtie suit were perfectly paired with one another and added the perfect touch to their formal affair. The bridesmaids were dressed in blushing pink gowns accented with pretty bouquets created by the oh so talented Blush Botanicals. The bouquets were perfectly constructed with white, ivory and light pink blooms including minimal hints greenery for a subtle up-close pop. 

You can’t beat a perfect wedding fit for any size at the Santaluz Club (one of our most favorite venues in San Diego). With views of the growing vineyard, to the reception set up in the blooming courtyard, to a small and simple ceremony this wedding was unique and an amazing time for all friends and family members in attendance. The ceremony was truly romantic with white rose petals lining the aisle leading to a beautiful arbor with flowing white drapes topped with gorgeous white roses. With a soft palette of ivory, grays and baby pink the decor and color combinations were loved on so many levels.

We did not skip a beat with this intimate reception set up. Guests arrived in the garden courtyard only to see a romantic and cozy setting with a twinkle light open air tent fitted with weathered wood dining tables and natural linen chairs for all. Each guest found their seat by spotting their names written in gorgeous calligraphy that were placed underneath the gold rimmed glass chargers. With sweet touches everywhere, this wedding was so special and romantic. All the best to Sara and John, congratulations you two!!!
