Wedding Chicks Pretty Finds | Pretty In Pink

We rounded up a few of our favorite pretty things that we are think are super duper pretty, and would be perfect at a Wedding Chicks inspired wedding. Along with the incredible cake below, that was  thoughtfully designed by Southern California baker  Sweet & Saucy Shop, and inspired by yours truly.

If Wedding Chicks had a cake baby, the below cake would be it. This geometric piece of art is just one of the many magical cakes that Sweet & Saucy Shop whips out every year.

A French And Californian Inspired Wedding

Romain and Larissa met on a winter’s night in the south of France. These two love birds come from two different cultures yet, sharing a common love for the ocean (Romain’s Brittany Atlantic Coast and Larissa’s Pacific), a spark was instantly lit and 5 years later in San Juan Capistrano they shared vows in front of their closest family and friends at The Villa San Juan Capistrano.

Romain and Larissa’s vision for their wedding day was to create a French/Californian ambiance, tying in the best of both worlds: a mix of warm magenta and cool ocean turquoises, bouganvilla, sea succulents, antique aqua votive candles, classic vineyard chairs, Chantilly lace, pearls and feathers, chocolate mousse and cupcakes, Francoise Hardy and Al Green… the parting gift was a mix of sea salt from the Brittany salt marshes and rosemary from Larissa’s parents’ garden. See all the images that were beautifully photographed by Matthew Morgan in the full gallery here.

The Villa San Juan Capistrano was the ideal place for Romain and Larissa’s French and Californian Inspired Wedding. Nestled in the old Spanish town of San Juan Capistrano, lies a turn-of-the-century home covered in ivy. A mahogany door, complete with a detailed metal door knocker, awaits the arrival of welcomed guests. Step inside The Villa and feel the essence of time flourish around you and your loved ones as you invite them into a historic building, filled with fine antiques flown in from around the world. A beautiful stone courtyard sets the stage for a romantic wedding ceremony and reception, all shaded by ancient fruit trees, and enhanced by flickering gas lanterns throughout the property.

From The Bride:
At the risk of sounding very corny, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Honestly it was a dream come true!

It Starts With A Heart Themed Wedding

He is a pediatrician, she is a pharmacist. In med school they were randomly assigned to the same cardiovascular intensive care unit. “It Starts With A Heart.” Get it?

Hundreds of yards of cheesecloth that was hand dyed by Jesi Haack Design in her own bathtub. Laser cut hearts as escort cards pinned to draped dyed cheesecloth, and a  parachute hanging from the ceiling. Something else you are going to love, the massive ceiling installation upstairs in the dance party. Jesi and her team hung hundreds of paper wedding bells from ceiling. There is so much more to see in the full gallery here, photographed by Brady Puryear. Read on to here about their wedding budget, it is always nice to hear how much things cost.

We absolutely adore all of the nail head signs used at their wedding. Including the table numbers, Jesi Haack Design and her team are so incredibly crafty and always have the hippest ideas.

One of our favorite things is to watch bride and groom’s wedding film. Enjoy Vince and Kristen’s wedding film from Minimo Productions. It is beyond cute.
