Orange Crush Wedding Inspiration on Green Wedding Shoes

May 30, 2013

Inspired by a book of vintage California orange box labels, this styled shoot created by Christina of Simply Modern Weddings and captured by OneLove Photography is one of our faves. We were excited about the vision, inspired by the color scheme and honored to be a part of this beautiful day. Set in a beautiful orange grove, the fresh citrus feel of this shoot makes us smile…..and long for warm summer days just around the corner! Check out Green Wedding Shoes to see their feature on Orange Crush Wedding Inspiration. 










Orange-you-glad we got to work with all these amazing vendors? We sure are! (And we apologize for the terrible joke, but seriously, how could we let that one go?)

Sure, we try not to play favorites…but let’s be honest, we all have a few. Here’s a quick peek at some of Krista’s favorites for the tabletop. In all colors, shapes and sizes, we’ve got a major crush on these beauties. Enjoy!











Bel Air Bay Club Real Wedding with Alchemy Fine Events and Luna Photo

May 16, 2013

This wedding is by far one of my favorites of the last year. I always love working with Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events, on top of being totally gorgeous and fun, her vision and designs are so inspiring! I have been pouring over these pictures by Luna Photo and love them all, so you’ll have to forgive the heavy photo post! There was just too much goodness throughout this day not to share!

From Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events… For Jessica and Iyla’s wedding, we were inspired by their passion for art and design, as well as their heritage and the history behind the Bel Air Bay Club for this Old Hollywood-inspired wedding.

 I worked with my team at Archive to build a custom designed chuppah covered in blooming bougainvillea.  The front of the chuppah was covered entirely in vibrant fuchsia blooms and draped the top with a piece of beautiful vintage crocheted lace.
Jessica’s bouquet was boasting with pink, peach and light plum peonies and roses. We added greenery to her bridesmaids bouquets to really pop against their ombre Amsale dresses.

I love the ocean backdrop at the Bel Air Bay Club, and this day the sky provided beautiful lighting to really capture the brightness of the bougainvillea.

From the Bride… We drew on the elegance of the Old Hollywood art deco era with vintage crystal decanters, gilded gold accents and chandeliers, some lace touches, mirrored boxes, and many candles as part of the decor.

Kate Spade Inspired Shoot by Jasmine Star Photography on Style Me Pretty

May 10, 2013

I am so utterly in love with everything about this shoot I don’t know where to begin! The colors? The creativity? The crew that made it happen?  I guess I should start with Lindye Galloway, she’s an interior and event designer, and the creative genius who dreamed up this colorful and fun Kate Spade inspired shoot!  Then there’s Jasmine Star, the photographer (and secret florist on the side!) behind these gorgeous shots. It was nearly impossible to narrow down pictures for this post because they’re ALL so insanely good! Add in the talents of Sweet & Saucy, Copper Willow, and LVL Events and its quite obvious why I was so honored to be included!

Now… about that creativity! And the color!! So much attention went into each detail emulating the bright and bold pops of color and sophisticated girlieness perfected by Kate Spade.

From Lindye Galloway DesignWith spring in the air and summer fast approaching we put together a bold shoot that exudes color, layers of patterns, and plenty of design eye candy! Desiring a modern feel, the location for the shoot is in an art gallery that is the perfect blank canvas to build upon.First is the ceremony! A colorful striped runner rests between the sea of ghost chairs, leading up to the aisle and (drum roll for a unique twist) continues several feet up the wall for a dramatic effect.

One of my favorite things about the Chuck Jones Center by 24 Carrots is the endless white space that begs for creativity to fill it, yet can equally as beautifully serve as a stark white backdrop to focus attention on its objects, as it does here.
