Real Wedding: Escape the Ordinary

Amorology

We're taking a look back at one of our favorite playful weddings from last year that was recently featured on Martha Stewart with our darlings, Richelle and Tom! Inspired by our bride's impressive collection of dresses, many of which were Kate Spade, we designed a Kate Spade-esqe evening at Darlington House in La Jolla that inspired us to escape the ordinary. We honored our bride's bubbly, feminine style with funky print invitations and paper elements by Peanut Press, and gorgeous bright pink blooms by Tint and Timber. Guests found their names among confetti crackers calligraphed by Twinkle and Toast that led them to their seats. The dessert table was to die for and anything but ordinary with, of course, chocolate covered bacon. One of the highlights of their wedding for us was creating their story wall with the help of Backup Backdrops which also served as photo backdrop and entry. Here's a little snippet of how it all began:

Richelle, a legal assistant, and Thomas, a lawyer, met in a fitting place: law school. Thanks to assigned seating, they landed next to each other in an early morning class. Richelle was awake enough to notice the cute guy to her side—and that he arrived promptly each day with a container of bacon. But seeing as neither of them are morning people, there wasn't much chit chat. The following semester, Richelle and her friend needed another person to carpool with to score a good parking spot, so they decided to invite Tom. He lived downtown and didn't need to drive, but was more than happy to have a free ride. So the girls picked him up on the way to school, usually stopping for coffee, and drove back in the afternoon—getting to know each other along the way. Their time spent carpooling turned to love as they spent the summer together, and led to a proposal on an evening walk with their adorable pup, Maxamillion!

The story that inspired it all led to the couple bidding farewell to their guests in a cute lovebug after having dined and danced the night away. While the wedding has come and gone, we love that their story wall has found a permanent place in their home and is something they can continue to cherish throughout the years. Cue the confetti!

Real Wedding: Merry-Go-Matrimony

Amorology

Falling in love can be a lot like a carnival ride; you're never quite sure where it'll take you, but you know it'll be full of butterflies, exciting twists and the feeling like you're flying!  Our darling duo Alissa and Kurt wanted to recreate that exact feeling for their guests when they said "I do!" at Calamigos Ranch in lovely Malibu, California. 

Alissa and Kurt first met in high school, but their flame didn't ignite until a couple years later when Alissa got the nerve to invite Kurt to hang out and gave him a candle in his favorite apple crisp scent.  The ride of life eventually brought them together as business partners at The Printed Palette, friends, and now Mr. and Mrs.!

For a couple when spent one of their first dates at the happiest place on Earth, they wanted to re-create a little of that magic for their happiest day ever.  After they tied the knot under a blanket of greenery surrounded by luscious florals from Plenty of Petals.  Guests celebrated with cotton candy from Bon Puf, festive lawn games, a brightly lit ferris wheel. The color palette for the day was inspired by Alissa's favorite peach and sea foam hues with pops of jade to tie them all together.  Pretty Vintage Rentals provided all the furniture needed to fill the beautiful, green space.  A gorgeous ombre three tier cake from Sweet & Saucy Shop topped with one of the day's catch phrases "Happily Hummel" just waiting to be cut.  We had so much fun styling all of the fun wooden and paper goods designed by our creative pair.  In the end family and friends popped the confetti and champagne with exclamations of "yippee!" as they danced the night away. Head over to Style Me Pretty to see more from their best day ever!
