From the bride:
Having Erich photograph the ladies getting ready at my grandmother’s house will forever be one of my favorite memories of the day. I am a sucker for nostalgia, and her house has always been magical in my eyes. My parents got married in the front courtyard of her house almost 41years to the day we were there getting ready. Erich was also able to take pictures of my accessories on my grandmother’s paintings and my dress on the same settee where my parents sat for their wedding pictures.

Steven and I had been together for 6 years and known each other since we were 11 (when I was taller than him!) at the time we got engaged so we were happy to wait another year and a half to plan an amazing wedding that celebrated the joy and love we have shared for so many years.

We first agreed that we wanted this to be a family affair. Both my mother and grandmother are a big source of my inspiration and I knew that I wanted to plan and create this wedding with their creative design and spirit. My grandmother is an impressionist oil painter and I envisioned my wedding like one of her floral pieces: colorful, soft, textured, and glowing.

If your wedding is in the summer, it is exponentially important to have beverages out for guests before the ceremony. Having a hydrated guests makes for a happy guest. Plain water or fancy water with fresh fruit, lemonade, limeade or ice tea. The options are endless on how to get creative with your beverage table. We love the simply stylish lemonade stand put together by Classic Traditions Catering.

After choosing Green Villa Barn as our venue and knowing that the garden space would be lush with color for our ceremony, I wanted to do something incredible and unique with the inside of the barn as well. The idea of adorning the ceiling with a tent of tissue paper pom poms along side the strings of lights seemed like the perfect dramatic element for our reception space.

Friends, family, and strangers came together to make and string over 500 pom poms, although most of the credit goes to my mom! The result was better than I could have ever imagined. I also wanted a personal touch on as many things as possible, so several other elements were DIY. We made the decorative signs, place cards, programs, and guestbook by hand as well.

A dream come true was to have my mother and grandmother do our floral arrangements. All three of us share a similar design style and my grandmother was a professional florist so I trusted them completely with executing my vision. We were even able to use some vintage pieces from my grandmother’s floral shop from the 1950s. When I saw the barn and garden decorated with the flowers my breath was taken away.

Sun Kissed Romantic Wedding Ideas

The goal of this gorgeous shoot was to create an effortless look with a Bohemian, Romantic, and Elegant feel, and it fits the bill perfectly. The color palette consists of shades that reflect warm, plush tones and dance together in the late afternoon sunlight. Mixed metallic tones of Rose Gold, Gold, Champagne, and Copper worked beautifully to accent the Ivory and Blush combination used for the floral arrangements.

Soak up more of the smiles from this sun kissed romantic wedding in the full gallery here, magnificently captured by Arina B. Photography.

From Rare Sophisticate:
Salt Water Gypsy is an online store with handmade kimonos that I knew would make the perfect Bridal look. We highlighted the intricate detail of the beautiful kimonos by keeping the dresses soft and understated.  Kraft paper, worn paint, and all over lace layers were throughout the stationary, table linens, and signage elements for texture. Arina is the incredibly talented and down to earth Photographer I was so lucky to have found on Instagram to capture this shoot the way I envisioned it to a tee.

Christopher Jay Heller of Rawhyde Manufacturing C0. creates the most one-of-a-kind custom bow ties, ties, suspenders, pocket squares and more. Naturally, I enlisted his help to create a unique look for the Groom. The custom bow tie incorporated micro suede and a deep currant fabric which he finished off nicely with the Rawhyde emblem. The micro suede suspenders were the perfect compliment to the bow tie and Bridal look.

Laura of Cake Bake Shop in Manhattan Beach created three perfectly polished mini cakes that we topped with blush garden roses, coffee bean plant, spray roses, and seeded eucalyptus to add just the right touch to the “Bubbly & Cake” dessert table. The soundtrack in my head as I curated the shoot consisted of timeless music by Sade and Jessie Ware; Sade lyrics were used on the invitation and Jessie Ware’s album Devotion was the inspiration behind the floral lettering of “Sweet Devotion.” Appropriate music that gets the creativity flowing is always a necessity when I am working on a any event. Song lyrics are also one of my favorite ways to incorporate a personalized touch to decorative elements.
