Our bride for this lovely blush filled wedding wanted an ocean view with no sand. So we headed to the beautiful coast of Big Sur in California. The Hyatt Carmel Highlands Big Sur Hotel was the perfect location to host all the guests and the wedding. With fantastic staff, stunning views, and the perfect location we were set. Guests enjoyed weekend activities in Carmel by the Sea and drives along the coast. This intimate wedding was so beautiful and my favorite way to have a destination event.
You’re engaged! Getting ready to plan your dream day. As your fairytale unfolds, there are a plethora of moving parts and some you don’t want to miss. Martha Stewart definitely knows weddings and did a post that looks at 4 of the most overlooked elements.
We love details, each little piece that is a beautiful unique part of your wedding. Though if details aren’t quite your thing, let us help you and read the post for some tips.
Ok, so if I am being honest, there are so many things I love about weddings and fun aspects you can add *clue why I do what I do, hint hint = live, breath, and sleep weddings* but anyway, drinks can be such fun! From signature drinks to speciality water, whiskey bars, lemonade stands and smoothies, having thirsty guests is no problem at all. Also, the new thing for non-alcoholic drinks in 2019 is Gazoz, a Middle Eastern/Israeli drink with herbs and sparkling water topped with fruit or melon. Super excited to already have this cool drink planned for a hot summer wedding. :)
This bride loved everything pastel even in the middle of summer. Yay! This wedding was so beautiful with its simple elegance. Rachel and Lee were a stunning couple and when you pair that with amazing talent from photographer Virginia Ann and perfect blooms from The Elegant Bee, you are all set!
Nothing beats a throwback to a lovely May day than the first days of spring. I don't normally pick favorites with weddings, but this one made me almost reconsider. Through torrential rain the wedding shown beautiful and white. I mean can you even handle the floral chandeliers? So feast your eyes on peonies, roses, gold, and beauty.
So this day was beautiful, sweet, and so perfect it makes me smile. Lauren and Josh were such a joy to work with, words can't even say. The lovely soft colors against historic wood and hill country charm came together magically. Not to mention the love between the bride and groom and the joy of all who participated in the day was inspiring.
Little details make the difference. Especially when they are beautiful little florals that grace handsome lapels.
What a beautiful day this wedding day was. With colorful florals atop custom blue linens, rustic cross-back chairs on a lush green lawn with a historic mansion as the backdrop, it was a stunner. Take a peak at this pretty May day fill with blue.
Jane came to us with the dilemma of deciding between a lakeside destination wedding or a local downtown bash. We helped create a day that captured the beauty and fun of the lakeside, in a local charming venue. It even had a beautiful pool that add a water element. :) Jane had so many fun ideas; she wanted to mix an artsy, colorful theme with DIY and rustic details. In the end the day turned out lovely. Jane was a stunning bride and everyone had a ball! The floral, blue + white napkins, and bright colors just make you happy. :)
Remembering this couple's beautifully romantic day at the historic St. Anthony Hotel in Downtown San Antonio. With blush gold, sparkles, peonies, orchids, and of course Toms, this wedding was a perfect day.
A field of grass, white eyelet dress, riverside moments and a beautiful couples make for dreamy engagements. This lovely pair is getting married next spring and by the look of these engagements, we can't wait for the wedding!
Gillian and Rick were such a perfect couple. Elegant, sophisticated, and so delightful, this bride and groom were a joy to work with. The day began at a regal downtown church, complete with organ and choir melodies as the bride and groom became Mr. and Mrs. Then the party started at the Historic luxury St. Anthony Hotel. Everything from bold pops of florals, beer pairings, custom perfume for the guests, this day was lovely from beginning to end.
So there were some small sprinkles, yet it was beautiful and sweet day at one of my favorite little venues, ZaZa Gardens. This lovely day was perfect, down to the delicious brunch and stunning cake.
So there are just to many beautiful girls, so here are some more. :)
On her biggest day each bride needs her best girls by her side. Take in all these beauties!
This was a beautiful day. From the bright florals, historic venue, and adorable couple this was a perfect wedding. Even the threatening rain blew off and left sunshine behind. Enjoy a day filled with Southwestern flares, Mexican food, and cactus themed centerpieces.
This couple was a joy to work with. Abbe was so organized and calm leading up to and on her wedding day. Josh is a producer for an independent film company and Abbe did a great job tying that into the day, from a fun groom's cake to a receiving line in the form of a step-n-repeat which is what is used at award shows (the red carpet and photo backdrop). Everything for this day was thoughtful and meaningful. The bridesmaids carried clutches, so much more fun than a bouquet, and the groom's ring was an irish wedding band giving a nod to his heritage.

Paper suites set the tone for each event. From invitations that gives a taste of what is to come, to little details like custom stamps and envelope liners, they can make the start of a wedding unique and creative.
These reasons show why a wedding planner is the best decision to make your day amazing and allow you to enjoy it. Thanks Style Me Pretty.
As 2015 ends, looking back at all of the lovely wedding and wonderful memories is such a joy.
