First off! I’m so sorry for being behind on blogging =) It’s been a busy month, but that’s a good thing! The beginning of this month, I had the wonderful opportunity to be an exhibitor at the US Grant in downtown San Diego. If you haven’t been there, you need to go. It is absolutely the epitome of ultra chic luxury! Once a year they host one of the most amazing bridal show that I have ever participated in. When I started the design process I wanted to show my style and somehow my personality into the design. I love designing so many different styles, because when I work with a couple, I focus the design on my couple’s style & personality. After all, it’s the most memorable moment in their life! I know it’s cliche but it’s true, from that day of celebration is how their story begins.
I had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Kathy Wright & Co (the amazing Kathy herself) in figuring where to start. I told her I loved the twilight wedding, I loved all the dangling white florals outside in the woods! She showed me an amazing custom table runner from Wildflower Linens that I just fell in love with. From the fabric inspiration we pretty much designed everything around that. I love fabrics that are highly textured (as you can tell this runner was). I have some chandeliers that I use for weddings, and I wrapped it in this natural bark with white damask paper to go with the fabric. I rented the wood table and bench from Pow Wow Vintage Rentals, they were the perfect size and super cute! I wanted the space to stand out and be cozy so I rented 4 large real ficus trees to surround the wood chuppah and I had them covered in twinkle lights (I love it! It reminds me of fireflies). The icing on the cake was the gorgeous menus & table sign designed and made by the lovely Jennifer of J.Grace Luxurious Event Stationary. They were so gorgeous, everyone that showed up had to touch and feel them! One of my favorite parts is the large calligraphy chalkboard! I made the chalkboard myself (first attempt!) and Jessica of Moira Ink calligraphy it for me. Isn’t she amazing? Okay, I’m sure you are tired of my rambling! Here are the professional pictures from the amazing Gene Higa Photography & Braja Mandala of Mandala Weddings!
P.S. The flowers by Kathy Wright was so beautiful, when her team put everything on the table I seriously teared up (I know, silly huh?) but seriously if those petals could talk…
