Sharing a lovely wedding from the ladies over a Details Details today! This beautiful couple incorporated an eclectic, yet consistent look throughout their celebration with vintage pieces. I love the range of colors in the palette and the way they infused personal touches. Check out their sweet nuptials from chalkboard signage to gorgeous florals.
I am so very excited to share our new Reclaimed Wood Pergolas with you all! These beauties were definitely a labor of love from start to finish, but I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. You may recognize some of these pictures from my instagram feed, but I would love to share a little more about how they came to life. Our good friends over at Bash,Please asked if we could make a couple reclaimed wood pergolas for a wedding, and of course, I was ecstatic about the idea! After searching for quite some time for the perfect wood, my hubby came across a fantastic place down in Laguna Niguel called True American Grain. When we went to check it out, I was like a kid in a candy store! Their selection is amazing, and gorgeous at the same time. You can read all about what they do, and where the wood comes from here. I chose the most beautiful hand hewn beams that came from barns in Michigan (circa 1868) and Tennessee (circa 1820). Joel got to work on a design that would make these structures solid, beautiful, and (somewhat) easy for our crew to set up. I am so thankful for his ingenuity and ability to build just about anything! Let me be a tad bit boastful and say that these iphone pictures don’t do them justice…These pergolas have just the craftsmanship and character of the 200 year old barns that this wood was originally used for. Can’t wait to share more photos soon!
We now have 4 of these pergolas built and ready to cozy up any event! We offer custom fabric options for the top, or they are equally beautiful without any fabric at all, or dressed up with flowers like the picture above from Bloom Box Designs.
I’m in a bit of denial that summer is over… I’ve decided to prolong my summer mindset by sharing this fun nautical wedding from Bash, Please today. Check out how the lovely Annie McElwain captured the rad and adorable couple!
Such a sweet couple at the Montage Laguna Beach Wedding! I mean really, how cute are they? Not only a lovely pair, but a gorgeous effort from all the collaborators including two of our favorites, Jill La Fleur and Kate of Flowerwild! Make sure to catch the couples’ beautiful story filmed by Couture Motion!
This sweet couple wanted a vintage, speakeasy vibe when it came to planning their wedding. With an intimate and elegant ceremony, plus touches like a whiskey bar and Angela’s vintage lace gown, the two created the memorable celebration they so desired. I just love the unique way Fresh Events incorporated a bench into one of their lounge vignettes and used our oversized mailbox for cards.
This couple is just rad. I’m so in love with their Wes Anderson inspired nuptials and how the ladies of Bash, Please brought it to life. This eclectic, modern, and elegant celebration reflected not only the films of Mr. Anderson, but also the couple so perfectly. I just adore each and every unique twist from the zebra envelope liners to the view-master “escort cards”– and everything in between. Eclectic perfection at it’s finest.
