    Congratulations Francine and Danny!

    Aaaaaah, what can be said about Francine and Danny? They're just the most lovely couple and were such a breath of fresh air to work with. Right from the start, we know we were going to love them. They said they were into music and loved spending time at music festivals. They also said they wanted kind of an indie-chic/Anthropologie wedding (I'm paraphrasing but that was the gist). An outdoor venue was a must and they fell madly in love with Maravilla Gardens the moment they set foot there. We worked with Francine and Danny for about a year and it wasn't until the day of the rehearsal that Whitney and Danny made the connection (with help from one of Danny's groomsmen) that they not only went to the same high school, but graduated the same year. That was a fun coincidence! Francine had a very specific vision for their day and as you can tell from these incredible photos, she was very inspired by florals and color. All the decor details tied together so beautifully and the day was the perfect combination of relaxed formality. No detail went unaccounted for and the vintage charm abounded. Francine and Danny were so thoughtful to their guests and really made sure they were happy, comfortable, and would always remember this special evening. The wedding went off without a hitch and we were so excited to have been part of it. Francine and Danny gifted us with passes to The Huntington Library as a "thank you" and we couldn't be more touched by the kind and extremely appropro gesture. Of course, when we see all the lovely flowers at The Huntington Library we will immediately think of Francine and Danny's beautiful wedding in the garden.

    Thank you to Tikko Weddings for these photos. Also, a special thank you to Amanda from Rosebud Floral Designs for the florals, Tony from Red Shoe Entertainment, 4120 Videography, and Heidi, Jen, and the team from Maravilla Gardens.


    Congratulations Sofiya and Josh!

    We had such a wonderful afternoon coordinating Sofiya and Josh's wedding at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. They chose Chateau Le Dome for the site of their spectacular day and there just aren't enough words to describe how amazing their taste is! We had the pleasure of pairing them with Kim from Art with Nature for their breathtaking florals and wow she did an amazing job! Sofiya and Josh were a pleasure to work with and so was Josh's mom Cheryl. We had such a blast creating their Master Timeline over pizzas and wine at Stonehaus in Westlake Village and it was just always a great time spending time with them. They're simply awesome together and obviously madly in love. We couldn't be happier with how beautifully their day turned out and we love every little detail! It was such a special touch having Josh's father officiate their ceremony and we love that they incorporated dances from each of their respective cultures. Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of your day you two and we wish you the very very best. Congratulations Sofiya and Josh!!

    Thank you to Cat from Next Exit Photography for these stunning photos! Thank you also to Sams By The Beach for the delicious meals and presentation, Pretty Vintage Table for these lovely rentals, and to DJ Tendaji for keeping the dance floor packed!


    Congratulations Brianna and Charlie!

    In case there was ever a question of why we're obsessed with the Los Angeles Athletic Club, we'll let the photos below do the explaining.

    Brianna and Charlie were one of the nicest, sweetest, most creative and organized couples we've ever had the joy of working with! They both live in Boston but wanted an LA wedding. Brianna is originally from Orange County and Charlie knew this would be a destination wedding for his side no matter what coast they had it on (because he and his family are South African and a few were also coming from New Zealand). So he was happy to oblige with the LA idea. And if you're going to invite your friends and family to travel from all over the world to celebrate SUCH a special occasion, why not do it in grand style? So they did! They selected Los Angeles Athletic Club in Downtown LA as their venue and had a roaring 20's affair. This venue was perfect because it has been a staple in Downtown since the real roaring 20s and there is a special access hall to what used to be a real speakeasy back in the days of prohibition. The staff there is also the best and they're always such a pleasure to work with! Charlie is a graphic designer so obviously color scheme and style played an important role and our design meetings were always such a blast! We loved every moment of helping to design the table linens, centerpieces, and vintage decor elements throughout. We were so pleased to pair them with The New Recessionaires, a swinging 20s band that's about as authentic as you can find. Rosebud Floral did an incredible job (as always) with their vintage-inspired centerpieces and Lee from Hey Mr. DJ kept the dancefloor packed at the Reception. Brianna and Charlie added their own special touches by asking their guests to sign a vintage map as their guest book and they had a blast choosing signature cocktails from the era. Of course, Charlie also designed their fantastic Save the Dates and Invitations. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed Brianna and Charlie and how happy we are that they found each other from opposite sides of the world and then found us from opposite sides of the country. Guess some things are just meant to be :)

    By the way, we are VERY proud preferred vendors at The LA Athletic Club.

    Thank you SO much to B&G Photography for capturing this day so perfectly! Your work is incredible!

    Congratulations Jessica and Brent

    It was up to fabulous Carmel for Jessica and Brent's indescribable wedding weekend this past May. There just aren't enough words in the English language to sum up the incredible views, perfect sunset, and swoonworthy decor that all came together perfectly for Jessica and Brent. We met these two lovebirds back in 2012, when they were teatering between having a larger wedding locally or a smaller wedding at Jessica's uncle's estate in Carmel Valley. As they described her uncle's house and the unbelievable photo opps it would provide for their day, we had no choice but to say "run, don't walk to Carmel Valley and have the wedding day of your dreams there!" We're so glad they agreed and I think it's safe to say they did have the wedding day of their dreams.

    Jessica is an accessories designer so it goes without saying that she has impeccable taste and an amazing attention to detail. She was SO much fun to plan and design with and I even had a blastwithJessica and Brent during a power wedding planning weekend in Carmel Valley in February. It was wonderful having an opportunity to get to know the family (some of the warmest, most wonderful people ever!) and to really get to bond with Jessica and Brent uduring our extended visit. I am honored, humbled, and ever so grateful to have been a part of this unforgettable day and I'm now so very pleased to be able to share these photos with you!












    Thank you SO MUCH to One Love Photography for these gorgeous photos! They're perfection!

    Congratulations Kristen and Kevin!

    Oh what can we say about Kristen and Kevin.... how about we just call them the cutest couple ever?! Don't they just look like cake toppers? They're just so adorable next to each other and so blissfully in love. Let's start from the beginning. When I met Kristen and Kevin for our initial consultation, it was very much a family affair. Right from the start, they were accompanied by Kristen's wonderful parents Rosa and Don. As the introductions took place, Kristen pointed in her father's direction and said "this is George Banks." If you've seen the movie Father of the Bride you'll understand the reference. I certainly did because I've seen that movie about a million and a half times. Anyway, I completely understood what she meant  - he was the dad that envisioned a small wedding in their backyard with checkered tablecloths and him manning the bbq, flipping burgers and passing them out to their friends in sandals and Hawaiian shirts. Well, maybe the vision wasn't quite like that but you get the drift. Kristen and her mom Rosa had a VERY different idea in mind and Kevin (one of the most supportive grooms we've ever met) just wanted Kristen to have the wedding of her dreams. He obviously would have followed her to the moon. Well, sufficed to say I was hooked. They were just the nicest people and such a tight family so I knew from the start I wanted to be involved. Fortunately, I had the privelege of being their Coordinator and oh my gosh was it a blast!

    Though Kristen and Kevin were originally talking about a Malibu Estate wedding with ocean views and sea air, I played a hunch and referred them to The Skirball Center. Surprising enough I was right and they booked right away. We planned together for about a year and every meeting was even more fun than the last. Kristen and Kevin really wanted their guests to have an experience. So they brought in an absolutely incredible 12 piece band (Rembrandt Band) who could sing anything from Stevie Wonder, to Beyonce, to The Black Eyed Peas. They also brought in cigar rollers which was definitely a highlight of the evening among their almost 300 guests. Kristen was also really into the little details that would make her guests feel special and appreciated. She and Rosa created the most thorough toilettries baskets we've ever seen for each of the restrooms and when the valet pulled up with their guests' cars at the end of the night, they were surprised to find bottles of water in their cupholders with a thank you message from Kristen and Kevin on the label.

    Guests danced the night away and had THE BEST time. And even amongst all the fun and craziness Kristen and Kevin never missed an opportunity to get lost in a moment all their own, and stand together staring deep into each other's eyes as if they were the only two people in the room. Catching them in these moments was so wonderful to witness and they were captured fantastically by the incomparable Heidi Ryder Photography. I will miss Kristen, Kevin, Rosa, and George Banks SO much and I'm so grateful that they've promised to keep in touch. I will absolutely hold them to that! Thank you so much for the memories you two and congratulations on an unforgettable wedding! I wish you two all the happiness in the world!
