An Elegant Take On Boho

Reposted from Wedding venues host hundreds of weddings every year, it’s a wonder that they don’t all look the same, but they don’t–that’s where a wedding design comes in. True, your venue should complement or enhance your wedding design in some way, but it doesn’t dictate it. Florals and decor are what truly set the scene and create an experience that’s unique to your wedding. The design for this wedding inspiration was boho-chic. To bring that inspo to life, this team incorporated boho elements like mix and match chairs, dried florals, cane and rattan furniture, and elegant pieces like cut crystal glasses, gilded chargers, and a classic bouquet of white roses and calla lilies. Boho Chic Dreams created these show-stopping florals like the ceremony arch and the hanging floral installation at the reception. Stop and Stare Events designed this shoot to show couples how to elevate the conventional boho wedding into a chic, modern affair. Choosing an elegant venue was a key part of communicating the formality of the event and Spanish Hills Club fit the bill perfectly. The large windows carried the reoccurring arch theme through the entire wedding and allowed gorgeous natural light to spill into the space that Katie Jackson Photography expertly captured […]

Spanish Hills Country Club Wedding

by ALEXIS LUNSFORD, reposted from The White Wren Today we are sharing a beautiful mix of modern & classic wedding design at this Spanish Hills Country Club wedding. The two styles were blended flawlessly & complimented each other in all the right ways. The soft creams paired with blushes & the gentle textures of lace went alongside the bold black & gold elements to create wedding inspiration for any couple seeking a romantic yet glamorous day! Our inspiration for this editorial was to combine our romantic, elegant wedding design with the new modern venue renovations of Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo, California. The versatility of the new limestone and black window panes and doors make this venue a true hidden gem in Ventura County. Our Bride styled by Ever After Bridal Boutique in her Venus gown by the Pollardi Fashion Group was a show-stopper. Complete with head-to-toe lace, beads, and pearls, gold and pearl earrings, and pearls in her hair, she was a sight to behold.

Romantic Styled Shoot at the Tavern at Zaca Creek

Reposted from Santa Barbara Wedding With a balance of rustic tavern elements and elegant features put together by many talented Santa Barbara vendors, this styled shoot was truly a work of art. The Tavern at Zaca Creek provided the perfect setting for the event and Events by Fran helped to coordinate every detail. Michelle Ramirez Photography captured the elegant, fall colors, specifically showcased within the floral arrangements provided by Tangled Lotus. The styled bride and groom were dressed by Ever After Bridal and Friar Tux, and the bride’s hair and makeup was completed by Jackie Romero. A gorgeous reception table display was designed by both Amigo Party Rentals and Otis + Pearl, and featured blush and white linens and tableware for a perfect contrast to the dark wood of the table. The Cake from Posies & Sugar was simple yet elaborate, adorned with blush and cream-colored flowers.

Jamison & Chloe | Breathtaking Deer Creek Ridge wedding in Malibu

By Dasha, Reposted from Dash Dean Photography This breathtaking Deer Creek Ridge wedding in Malibu couldn’t be more perfect: lots of love, tears of joy, and smiles, all under the Californian sun with breathtaking views of the Pacific ocean. 2020 has certainly been full of surprises and changed plans. And I was so happy for Chloe and Jamison when they told me they were still able to make their wedding happen! You may remember them from their gorgeous Malibu Mountains Engagement session earlier this summer. If you haven’t seen it, make sure to take a peek as it has a little story on how they met and what movie they used as an excuse to hang out together at first. This doesn’t happen at every wedding that I photograph, but I love it when the toasts end and I feel like I have a deeper understanding of who the bride and groom are. Chloe’s father, and sister, and Jamison’s mother shared beautiful memories of the two of them that allowed me to feel like I knew them better. And the way Jamison hugged Chloe who was missing her recently deceased mom dearly, especially that day, just melted my heart! It reassured me […]
