Bouquet Recipe

For a fun, flirty rustic garden look with a pop of color, we used brightly colored florals for our brides bouquet. Zinnias, purple lisianthus, yellow billy balls, silver dusty miller, blue thistle, geranium leaves, and zinnia foliage. The kind of bouquet that isn’t for the shy of color!

DIY Donut & Dessert Bar

From Laced With Love Events :
We custom ordered the Donuts from Pink Ribbon Donuts in Mission Viejo, CA. They were amazing. They did a great job in using bright and vibrant colors to coordinate with our theme. You can display the donuts on a tiered dessert display or on a dessert platter like we used, and stack them carefully so they don’t topple over. We went with the small cake donuts, and used hot pink and a neon yellow with retro colored sprinkles. You can go with just a white frosted, or any color that goes with your theme. Donuts are a fun and delicious treat to share with your guests!

How To DIY glittered candles

These glitter dipped candles are fun, cute, and SUPER easy to create. All you need are unscented candle sticks, glitter, regular school glue or fast drying craft glue if you’re in a hurry, and a medium sandwich baggie.

1. Place a generous amount of glitter in the bag.
2. Rub glue on the candle as high as you’d like the glitter to be- don’t put glue on the very bottom of the candle.
3. While holding the bag open, carefully dip the candle and twist and twirl it around until the glue is covered in glitter.
4. Stand up in a holder and leave to dry.

On a modern wedding aesthetic

From Elissa R Photography:
From the moment I heard from Michael and Natalie, I knew that their wedding would be amazing. Michael, who attended Art Center in Pasadena, CA and now designs cars for Acura, has impeccable design taste; Natalie, a Japanese-American who grew up in the Los Angeles area, loves modern fashion and innovative designs. Their Japanese-Jewish wedding, held at Temple Israel in Long Beach, was a beautiful, contemporary mix of their two cultures.

Natalie walked down the aisle in traditional Japanese wedding attire. After the chorus of mazel tovs, she changed into a handmade neoprene dress and 3D-printed heels. Michael and his groomsmen all wore custom “brass” knuckles spelling out his surname, and the party continued amidst fresh, locally-sourced fare and desserts. The two had envisioned their wedding to feel fresh and modern, with geometric designs throughout. It was a sweet celebration.

Advice from the Bride

My advice to brides on their big day is to just go with the flow. Focus on the big picture. Try not to base your emotional state on whether small details were executed to your preference.

Great advice Natalie! And might we just add, staying true to yourselves as a couple is important. Everyone’s wedding is beautiful and unique to the people who throw it. So take a cue from Natalie and Michael, and quit trying to fit in and instead celebrate you differences; Like Natalie’s neoprene reception dress and geometric shaped wedding shoes! So Fabulous!
