Real Wedding: You, Me, Oui


Looking back on this wedding has us longing for Paris and fresh flowers in our bicycle basket! When we first met Mary Beth + Peter we learned among many other things about their love for frequenting their local farmers market.  This inspired us to to pair a subtle industrial feel with their favorite weekend pastime into the decor!  We sent guests "To Market" to find their table assignments from a produce filled escort display we created (after nearly buying out all of whole foods!) and named tables after the couple's favorite fruits and veggies! We teamed up with Peanut Press and Pitbulls & Posies to deliver the prettiest of paper and favors were muslin bags filled with our couples favorite gathered farmers market items to give them a sampling of San Diego. We loved playing with the juxtaposition of the soft florals by Twigg Botanicals mixed with concrete cinder blocks and had a ton of fun DIY-ing the wooden candle holders that were placed at each table.  

Being that Peter proposed to Mary Beth in Paris, you know we couldn't resist bringing in Parisian cafe chairs, wood farm tables and creating a custom "You, Me, Oui" sign to dress up their dessert table among plated macaroons and a 3 tier  Hey There, Cupcake Beauty.  Root Cellar also brought it all to life with a farm to table menu and no shortage of cheese!  It was such a gorgeous day that we will never forget!  We wish Mary Beth and Peter a "bon mariage" and a lifetime of love and fresh produce! Thanks to Fonyant Photography for the photos and our amazing team for delivering a healthy dose of delicious details! Go ahead and sink your teeth into it!  I promise it's good for you! 


























And to see it in motion, don't miss the beautiful highlight video from Max + Molly! No shortage of love for this team!

Engaging: Rachel & Roy


Rachel and Roy both attended Columbia University but it wasn't amongst the books where they met. The two first laid eyes on each other in the Miami heat during a softball game and are now wedding in San Diego. Their day will be filled with Jewish traditions and symbolic olive branches. There might have to be some rich chocolate thrown in there because this duo can't live without it! A big thank you to John Newsome for these lovely photos. We can't wait to wish this happy couple luck on their big day! Mazel Tov!

What do you love most about your significant other?
Rachel: His loyalty, his enthusiasm, his mind
Roy: Her enthusiasm, her curiosity, and her optimism, and her laugh

What's in our File: Turkish Delight

Here is a sneak peak into our upcoming Turkish Delight wedding, but we want to let you in on a little secret first! This couple is already happily married with a gorgeous two year old of their own. Because they did not have a proper wedding, we have been helping them plan their dream day celebrating the love they have for each other! Their favorites and family are all gathering for this weekend's big celebration.

Now let's rewind a bit! This couple first met while working at Ikea. Arda is the manager there while Joahna did room design prior to her becoming a mama. They have a great sense of style and some ethnic background. Arda is from Turkey which inspired us to weave in Turkish bohemian elements. We'll be shaking things up with tambourines and all sorts of fun metallics to compliment their soft palette and Turkish prints. This wedding is going to make you want to have your own wedding all over again!

Real Wedding: Happy Campers




Erin & Casey have a happiness that is contagious! They are the kind of people that you can't wait to hear from and who's emails have a way of always brightening your day. Basically, Fun = Them! And so...what could we do but give them one of the most playful weddings ever to match their equally amazing and fun story?? Our happy campers found each other at 5th grade summer camp where they've shared some of their most fond memories together which gave us the best jumping off point for their big day!  Picnic blankets, lanterns, enamel mugs, wood benches, friendship bracelets, bingo, and a s'mores station were just a few of the details that rounded out the camp vibes for Erin + Casey's wedding.  So pull up a cot and kick back with some cocoa for the rest of this fun feature! 



 


Twigg Botanicals designed a gorgeous bouquet of anemones, ranunculus, garden roses, and berries that our bride carried while their Grandma Beebe played the role of flower girl, who carried a thermos of petals to toss. How fun is that?  






We loved creating this custom arbor that beautifully showcased the red bell that our couple had custom made from an old scuba tank with their established date. At the end of their vows, the officiant rang the bell as the couple kissed. Swoon!




What would camping be without a thermos full of hot cocoa? We couldn't resist creating a custom-built backdrop for our couple that held cups of marshmallows and engraved spoons with the guests names and table assignments to lead them to their "camps" or tables.   


In honor of a camp tradition, each place setting featured a personalized Bingo card by Peanut Press. We surprised the wedding party with vintage Bingo cards from Folklore Vintage and started off the reception with a game which carried through dinner and offered the lucky winners a basket of some of the couple's favorite things. 













Instead of a traditional photo booth, we created a summer camp memories display for guests to look at throughout the evening. The string of photos featured old memories from camp and was a perfect way to mix the past and present of Erin + Casey's relationship!





Our thermos runneth over with love for this wedding and our sweet couple, Erin + Casey!  We can't wait for all the adventures that are in store for them! Wishing them a lifetime of campfires to cozy up to!
