Styled Editorial | California Coast Inspiration

Anyone that knows me knows how much I am in love with California. The variances in landscape and terrain is remarkable. I like to plan a few trips there each year just to get inspired, make new vendor relationships and create fresh content. This trip was all of this and so much more. We were able to connect as a team and create something truly beautiful. Our design was influenced from the beautiful, historic mission of San Juan Capristrano with it’s terracotta walkways, over-sized cacti, and gorgeous arched walkways. All of my favorite things at once!! Our palette complemented it’s environment with rusty shades of gold, creams and brown/reds with a blue tone in the fabric for an unexpected pop. Our table setting was constructed from a primitive wood table and bentwood chair pairing. Floral vessels were a trio of vintage terracotta pots that gave a design lending of being unearthed. They referenced beautifully back to the influence of the mission. With a soft, organic blue fabric that pooled to the sides of the table and dramatically dripping taper candles, who would NOT want to dine at this dreamy scape?! We used hand turned ceramic dinnerware and a knotted simple linen napkin to keep our table relate-able. The purpose was the fit the design within the environment, not to compete. Loving details can be found throughout, from hand drawn illustration of the mission to beautiful jewelry, and one very stunning bride.

Lauren + Hunter | 809 at Vickery

Led by our lead planner, Jennifer, this wedding is full of personalized detail and charm. Lauren’s wedding day started at a beautiful historic mansion in Fort Worth where her ladies enjoyed inspiring decor, bubbles on ice and one gorgeous sprawling suite to get all dolled up. From chandeliers and velvet chaise furniture to dramatic stairwells and ornate stain glass, this space was fit for a queen! Once ready the girls headed to the lovely Robert Carr Chapel where her groom, Hunter, would be waiting for their first look. And of course, they had to include their baby pup for the big bridal reveal!! Lauren’s maids wore mismatched dresses in shades of pastels and held loosely tied blooms in peach, cream and gold. After the couple said their “I do’s” they headed to 809 at Vickery for a romantic night under the twinkling of lights. We designed lush crawl floral garlands, gold accents and tons of candle light to transform this warehouse event space. One of our favorite details created custom for Lauren + Hunter was the hand dyed cake backdrop with the words “I carry your heart with me, I carry it in my heart”, one of the couples favorite love poems by EE Cummings. What a magical night!
