Love Notes: Caitlin & Matt's Wedding

Amorology

So excited to post Caitlin + Matt's Wedding! Also so glad that it got featured by Style Me Pretty yesterday, always an honor to be among all of the swoon worthy weddings they post!


We always find inspiration from within our couples and in Caitlin & Matt's case, we could not help but create a hopelessly romantic wedding for the two! Caitlin is a Texas girl with traditional roots, so we knew from the get go that her wedding had to be sweet but also have a punch of fun.


She is definitely a romantic at heart with a sentimental side, which we wanted to highlight and share with her guests! With these ideas in mind, we formulated the concept of a Love Letters/Notes wedding.


The ceremony took place on the croquet lawn among a backdrop of sunny blues skies and hot air balloons. Vintage sheet music was fashioned into petal cones that hung from the sides of chairs for guests to toss as the happy couple walked by.


From the moment guests arrived at Rancho Valencia they were greeted with the couples' fondness of love letters. The sign-in table had a mailbox perched atop sprawling moss and loose flowers, where guests left "love notes" on the back of postcards for the couple. Paper elements on the mailbox read "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, which evoked memories of vintage love letters.




Elizabethan Bakery made the most scrumptious mini cupcakes in various flavors, such as lemon drop, plain jane, and rosie's red velvet. We placed all of the minis on to adorable cupcake stands in varying heights and shades of blues and greens. The display was just as cute as it was delicious!






Even though we wanted the wedding to be as romantic as possible, we also wanted it to reflect Caitlin & Matt's fun and outgoing personalities. This sense of playfulness was brought in by the color scheme. We combined pale peach tones & soft pinks with vibrant aqua and Kelly green, the bride's favorite color, to achieve the sweet yet sunny look. Which is exactly how you would describe Caitlin : )



Escort cards were pretty mini postcards, that led to tables which were all named after romantic love letter endings and salutations, such as "All of my love" and "Yours forever."

Tall pillar candles offered ambiance and danced among the moss and succulent lined tables that held the beautiful floral arrangements made up of garden roses, tuberose, dahlias, stock, and hydrangea. Which were arranged by Twigg Botanicals!


Once at their seats, guests were surprised to find gorgeous custom made stationary sets as their favors. The sets were enclosed brown paper boxes with assorted vintage stamps. These as well as all of the other to die for paper elements were fashioned by our fave, Brightly Designed.




After hours of dancing, the romantic evening came to a close with a sparkler send off, which was captured perfectly by Jona and Jerry from Forever Photography!Thanks so much for sharing these photos with us and congratulations Caitlin & Matt, we're sending you all of our love!

A Summer Celebration: Melissa & David's Wedding

Amorology

We absolutely love working with Stephanie & Isaac from Stephanie Williams Photography and will jump at any opportunity to do so. We equally love working with brides who are crafty and creative, so how lucky are we that we got to work with both at this sweet wedding?!

As we mentioned before, Melissa is one awesome bride. She is an interior designer and just opened her own store, Bixby & Ball! Needless to say, we had so much fun planning with her. Melissa was just breathtaking on her big day and here's the proof!


David and his groomsmen were quite a fun group as well! The matching green ties and vans really reflected the boys' personalities perfectly. We love how no detail was forgotten; check out their awesome green watches!

Gorgeous flowers complemented the summer soiree perfectly thanks to Adrianne Smith Floral Desgin. Adore the mix of the bright & cheery flowers paired with the moss and succulents.


Melissa let her bridesmaids choose their own dresses in various shades of yellow. We think each one of them did a great job and absolutely love the look of all the varied shades!


Love that Stephanie caught these adorable croquet shots!



Scrumptious cake from VG Bakery! It was definitely a focal point located against the handmade backdrop that Melissa's father constructed for the wedding.

Melissa's mom also got in on the crafting and created the escort and place cards that our team arranged in the moss and succulent lined boxes. With both of her parents being so involved in the wedding, we definitely see where Melissa gets her creativity from!

The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe was the perfect venue to host Melissa & David's summer wedding! The gold chairs and chargers shimmered under all of the playful string lighting. The aqua napkins and table runners added just the perfect amount of pop to the adorable yellow and white check linens.


The whole wedding was a joyous event, but it really got jumping when Flashdance DJ Michael Antonia, aka the Human Jukebox, started doing his thing. I've seen people dance at a wedding, but never like they did at Melissa & David's. Great job Michael!


Immense thanks to Stephanie Williams Photography for sharing these lovely photos with us! And a huge hug to Melissa & David for letting us be a part of their day! Congratulations you two!

Sew in Love: the party

We loved sharing the details with you from the first half of Lauren + Michael's wedding and could not wait to get the pictures up from the rest of the magical night!





Simply gorgeous and delicious cake from Carrie's Cakes. This beautiful cake complemented the rest of the reception so perfectly, not to mention the bride's dress, which was part of the pattern on the cake!





The cake looks so divine in this picture!




How beautiful does the reception tent look at night? You wouldn't believe the party that was going on inside : )





The bridal party surprised guests, as well as the bride, with their hilarious choreographed dance!



The groom couldn't help getting in on some of the dance party action!





We are soooo in love with the ridiculously cute dress that Lauren changed into for their send-off! Can't believe she and her Mom made the dress themselves!



Thanks so much to Nicole Hill Gerulat for sharing these breathtaking pictures from the couple's big day! Best wishes, Lauren + Mike!
