Wedding Wednesday: A Sweet Affair at the Darlington House

Jen and Jair tied the knot is the sweetest way! They first choose the Darlington House as their venue which is always a great pick. Then they gathered in amazing people from all around the world. With Jair being from Brazil, many of his friends and family flew in for the big event. To follow they greeted guests with amazing latin music, drinks and appetizers. The rest of the night was history... People danced the night away and toasted sweet "cheers" to the kind, SO in love and fun couple!

The decor was simple and just right for the look they were going for! We mixed brushed silver and gold (hard to see in this pics) and it came out so great. The runners were handmade. There is a great fabric store in San Diego where you can get affordable fabric, and then with the help of an aunt, cousin or grandma you can have the perfect runner for less.

I am honored to have been a part of the day! The wedding was 3 weeks after lil MacKenzie was born, so I was a bit nervous about my energy level but after seeing how the day was coming together and oohing over Jen in her dress, I got a serious boost of energy!

Sorry for the low quality pics and video- These were all taken on my iphone!


Finishing Touches Tuesday: A "Packaged" Save the Date

My eyes lit up when I received one of my brides Save the Dates in the mail! I absolutely love how they came out. I felt like I was getting a small present, with the way it was tied together. The always talented Meg from Worboys design has again out done herself. Lauren and Greg are getting married in Incline Village, Tahoe this coming July. Lauren wanted the Save the Date to be very "them", which is exactly what Meg put together. There are cute personalized touches that are significant to them. For example the block font, Lauren "Hearts" Greg, and the recycled paper. Don't you all wish you could go to this wedding?! It is going to be a fun one...

Vendor Love: Lane Dittoe Photography

My gorgeous bride, Jessica and her hunky husband-to-be, Chris just sent me their engagement pictures! I love them and also love the work from Lane Dittoe, so I had to share. Jessica and Chris meet a few years back through Yes it does work, and they are proud to tell people of that! Jessica was romanced by Chris's Texas charm and witty personality. The chemistry and personality was an instant match and so the rest became history.

I am having SO much fun working with this couple. They are due to get married at the Estancia Resort and Spa this coming August. The wedding is going to be stunning! Just looking at Jessica's hot outfits in these shoots- you know her dress is going to be something to talk about!

Stay tuned for more on Jessica and Chris...


Wedding Wednesday: Wish Upon a Wedding

I am back! I have missed you all so much and am very excited to have this inspiration story as my first post.

I recently came across "Wish Upon a Wedding" and immediately feel in love with what they are doing. They have brought together a team of vendors that are willing to donate their services for free, for a bride and groom who are facing terminal illness or a life altering circumstance. This is such a special thing as they are granting their biggest wish, to marry the love of their life. All the stories are so inspiring, full of life and best of all love.

They remind me of just how important the heart of a wedding really is. The core, at it’s very purest form, is all about love. And love is the very first thing I saw when I opened this beautiful affair.

I want to share the story of Jon and Alyssa...
