Kelly + Ryan’s eclectic wedding

It wouldn’t be hard to be inspired by the beauty surrounding Kelly & Ryan’s Smog Shoppe Wedding in Los Angeles,  California.  When Kelly & Ryan first set foot on site, they knew it offered all that they envisioned for their wedding day and more! They wanted to have everything in keeping with the rustic and vintage nature, in addition to some eclectic features of their venue, also adding in some soft and romantic touches without taking away from the overall beauty.

Captured on film by their good friends, their wedding had a strong family focus with everyone seated on a beautiful black and white sofa during the ceremony hour– everyone even including Kelly’s aunt that hold a very special place in her heart.

Our hearts were soaring when we first got to witness Kelly in her stunning Leanne Marshall gown and Ryan’s handsome clean-cut royal blue Combatant Gentleman suit on their big day, and not to mention noticing their first look that had our jaws literally drop to the floor.  It was the most romantic and passionate moment of the day.

We applaud this gorgeous couple for taking this leap of faith and really proud and honored to have been a part of this special moment of their lives. Thank you, Kelly & Ryan for all that you have entrusted in us and we look forward to many more celebrations with you in the future… whether it be future Garcia baby birthdays… and/or decide to renew your vows, we’ll be here to hold your hands again!

Anh + Allan Together Forever

Anh + Allan Together Forever

When we first met Anh and Allan, it was love at first sight. Seriously one of the most cutest and sweetest couples we have ever met…not to mention, DIY Queen and King! Both scientists, they wanted to incorporate their nerdy personalities to the theme of their wedding, which made this especially fun for us to design.

Their Ceremony and Reception took place at the beautiful and unique Serra Plaza located in the beautiful sunny city of San Juan Capistrano (if you haven’t been to this little town, it’s an absolute must!). If you’re looking for a venue that offers extremely affordable stunning chandeliers and complimentary (unlimited) vintage furniture rentals, Serra Plaza is the place for you! Of course, with Anh’s love for both, we may have gone a little crazy with it =)

The Courtyard, romantically draped, created an intimate space for the Ceremony and Reception. The trees were wrapped with lights and crystals hung from the branches. Did we mention, Anh and Allan made the crystals to hang on the trees? But…that’s not all! They also made the LOVE marquee (including the bulbs and wires), laboratory theme place cards, and hand painted the gold bottles to name a few. Naturally, we were absolutely amazed and secretly jealous we didn’t have the skills to build the marquee ourselves.

There were SO many fun and intimate details that truly captured the personalities of the couple that made wedding planning simply effortless…just like them. Anh and Allan, thank your for allowing us to be part of your special day!

Annalisa & Will’s Romantic City Wedding at Café Pinot, Downtown Los Angeles

Annalisa + Will’s Romantic City Wedding

When we had a peek inside Annalisa + Will’s engagement session, we were convinced it couldn’t get any better, but boy were we wrong! When the insanely talented photographer,  Loretta from Pie Shoppe sent over photos of Annalisa + Will’s wedding, we instantly changed our minds.  It was a day filled with deep support and love all around from their close friends and family.

City streets, high-rise buildings and bistro lights created the perfect backdrop for Annalisa and Will’s outdoor Downtown Los Angeles wedding at Café Pinot. Beautifully located by the historic Los Angeles Public Library with a sweet scenic park displaying lush greenery, Annalisa and Will couldn’t have picked a better venue!

Romantic shades of white, ivory, blush and subtle hints of gold perfected the venue. The ceremony site was filled with lush floral, rose petals, hanging orchids and a stunning chandelier that transformed the park into a magical space. Cocktail hour displayed some of Annalisa and Will’s favorite love quotes in gold frames. A Hedge backdrop decorated with subtle flowers and a “Love Grows” sign told their love story through intimate photos. The Reception beautifully set in front of the Los Angeles Pubic Library with tall lit trees and bistro lights hanging above the dance floor, created the perfect ambiance for a city wedding.

Patty & Andrew’s Classically Divine Wedding at Carondelet House, Los Angeles

When Patty first came to us with her design vision, we knew right away what type of style she was going for. Considering the venue the couple selected– Carondelet House in Los Angeles, is not only filled with so much architecture, and an array of different textures of modern and rustic looks, but  also has a mixture of French and Californian style; it clearly made design concept possibilities endless.

With gold tones, vintage books, a variety of votive candles sprinkled around the venue– it was the perfect touch to give this venue that extra flare.

Partnering up with floral designers at City Flowers to come up with a lavish sweet heart table for the reception was like a dream come true.  We undeniably wanted to make Patty and Andrew the focal point in the room, and we felt that we definitely brought that to life– with hand crafted wooden arch, loose hanging fresh greenery and white roses to give it the added elegance. We finished the look with an ornate lace table linen by Etablir shop, accomplishing divine, exquisite and antique details to this beautiful wedding.

Now, aside from all the amazing and beautiful decor, we invite you to view Patty and Andrew’s gorgeous photos brought to you by Studio Castillero

Whimsical Olive Grove Wedding Styled Shoot

Whimsical Olive Grove Wedding Styled Shoot

We admire and cherish all things warm, simple, organic and romantic; therefore wanted to create a wedding inspiration shoot that reflected all those things. The beauty is in the details for this effortless, yet classic shoot. Our distinct color palette of soft blues, creams, black and white highlight the uniqueness of the majestic and distressed olive grove backdrop, and you find your focus being drawn to the accents of deep red in the bride’s lips and groom’s black & white suspenders—matched so eloquently with the tablescape.

The overall essence of this theme was captured in the flowers and table setting. With breathtaking crystal ball florals hanging above the grandiose olive trees by Beloved Blooms, the captivating paper suite delicately curated by Red-Letterday, and a combination of pottery and vintage glasses, we were able to produce a whimsical outdoor look.

In addition to this finished setting, our wonderful models , Kelly + Ryan, were gracious enough to be a part of this amazing shoot. Being a real couple (scheduled to be married later this year), and both pursuing their dreams as an actor and writer, this was the perfect opportunity to achieve their best performance as of late!
