Malibu and Vine is situated within the Malibu Mountains and a great option for those of you on the hunt for a romantic, yet elegant Los Angeles wedding venue. As you can see, the outdoor space is quite lovely and has a bit of a rustic flair. You can find old wine barrels and blooming lavender throughout the property, perfect for pretty portraits.
Yellow Bird Events shared with us how lovely the space can really be. Setting up an inspiring tablescape with gorgeous florals from Wisteria Lane Flowershop and beautiful props from one of our favorite vintage rental companies Archive Vintage Rentals. See the entire shoot in the full gallery and stay tuned for a pinwheel diy from Yellow Bird Events.
Wisteria Lane provided the sweet florals for the shoot. We wanted a classic approach with a bit of a quirky touch, which is why we brought in the daffodils into the fresh blooms of roses, ranunculus, and hydrangeas. The rentals were provided by Classic Party Rentals and Archive Party Rentals provided the bench and the vintage, yet classic “Welcome” sign.
When it came to the tablescape, we wanted to keep the look clean and sweet while bringing a different approach to the menu. Kathy G. Chung provided the gorgeous stationary for the invitations and menus. Guests would be able to check off their main meal choice on the menu card provided complete with your own personal writing utensil.
The initial inspiration stemmed from the pinwheels. The vision was to tie in the sweetness of the pinwheels to the classic touch of the details throughout the shoot. If pinwheels were going to be a part of the shoot, it had to be something big…like a wall! The pinwheels were constructed by being placed on large dowels and gaps were filled with individual pinwheels in various sizes. I also wanted to bring in some color to the wall by painting just a few of the wheels with water color paint.
To top off the pinwheels, we couldn’t leave out balloons by Geronimo Balloon Troopers! Just enough flair for a classic and fun affair!
