When my friends over at Birds of a Feather wanted to schedule some shoots to update their website, I volunteered to help plan one. I hadn’t worked on a styled shoot since I first started and was excited to work on a project with some of my vendor friends and get to design whatever I wanted. We went with a soft and romantic palette to match the aging exterior of the building. After looking through the Found Vintage and Casa De Perrin sites, I selected some pieces that I thought would be fun to work with and sent the images over to La Happy and Catalina Neal, who both embraced the color story and romantic nature of the images. You can head on over to Style Me Pretty to see more!

It is always such a treat when you get to take part in planning your friends’ weddings. I have been lucky enough to offer my help to a few and it’s great every time. Davia and Jordan were planning to get married in Mexico when the Zika virus changed their plans as they had several guests who were pregnant, so they made a last-minute switch to Socal. They looked all over to find something that would get them as excited as their original destination. After many site visits they found what they were searching for at Cielo Farms. It had an intimate feel, amazing views and a laid-back vibe that matched their style. Davia chose a colorful palette to make the rustic tables really pop. Guests were treated to vegan cuisine and a surprise salsa dance. Head on over to 100 Layer Cake to see more!

Victoria and Michael decided to have a daytime luncheon wedding. They kept it small – close friends and family only. What better spot for a Sunday brunch than the Hotel Bel Air? Victoria loved the look of natural wood tables with abundant florals. She took design inspiration from her own home, in fact, she owns the same exact dishes we used for the table. Michael was a a big fan of dessert, so we tapped SusieCakes to make their wedding cake. A string quartet played for the ceremony and reception.

Liz and Bert got married on Halloween, but you would never know it. Liz wanted a classic white and green color scheme. As an interior designer, she had such amazing taste and it was fun to select beautiful elements like brass vases and monogrammed napkins with her. She chose The Biltmore in Santa Barbara since she wanted her friends and family to enjoy the best of the West Coast weather and views by selecting the Coral Casino side of the property.
