My Funny Valentine

pink weddings, hot pink weddings

Yes, I know. Many of us are jaded by the red and pink cut-out, heart shaped-everything holiday. In resent years someone tried to pass off  Valentine’s as the official  “Hallmark” holiday which almost worked. Yet, there are those who still have the love bug and February is a month filled with pink and red inspired ideas floating in their minds. I am one of those hopelessly romantics who loves love and am truly driven and inspired by it daily. February is not only a great time to get married, it opens amazing color palettes and design ideas for weddings. Get Inspired. Be Fabulous. Be In Love. Happy Valentine’s Day

Black & White Vintage Glam – {Inspiration Board}

Over the weekend I met with a bride and groom who will be exchanging their vows in July. I am truly excited about this wedding because the bride loves vintage inspired designs and details. Two of my favorites design elements in a wedding. I created several inspiration boards for the couple before the meeting to help define exactly what they liked about black and white (with a splash of red) and what they did not. She fell in love with the more vintage-inspired glam ideas which I was able to collect from my co-bloggers and wedding planners. Thank you all for inspiring me. Below are some of the boards created.

A Modern Twist on Old Traditions {Rachie + Ellie}

When I first started working on Rachie & Ellie’s wedding in mid-April, I knew this wedding was going to be a truly unique and inspiring wedding. Not just because this was a modern Orthodox Jewish wedding taking place on a ranch or because of of the very short timeline I had to plan the wedding (the wedding was Aug 14), but because  my first meeting was with the father of the bride who hired me before I ever met the bride and groom and knew every small detail his daughter would love for her wedding. It was a first for me.

I’ve had the pleasure of coordinating many Jewish weddings. Orthodox Jewish weddings always take extra planning and attention to details as they have their own unique traditions and etiquettes which need to be followed closely by the direction of the family. This Orthodox wedding did have a modern flair to it because of the design elements and details that were incorporated into the wedding, which made it that much more unique. The bride and groom had a very hip style which made this wedding that much fun. Mixing modern ideas with old Jewish wedding traditions made this wedding truly inspiring to work on.

The bride had a passion for all things yellow and royal blue which we made sure were highlighted and accented throughout the wedding. This included the flowers, lemonade stand with blue and yellow vintage straws purchased on and custom vintage signs made by Magic Wand Weddings. We also found the groom’s strong love for Western music and made sure this was incorporated into their wedding memories by the amazing  photography of John Solano. The fabulous floral design was by none other that Sonny Alexander Florists in Los Angeles. Corey who helped work on the concept incorporated the bride’s yellow and blue color concept into all the center pieces. Tables had different design elements throughout which made it so appealing to the eye.

Change of shoes were for sure the highlight of the wedding. From satin sandals to cowboy boots for both the bride and groom to my favorite bubblegum colored platform Converse All-Star shoes to give the petite bride some height and comfort.

Decor included amazing 8 and 10ft spheres by Shape Events 
that were hung throughout the ballroom and illuminated in blue hughes and a 12ft sphere that overlooked the pond and illuminated the bride and groom’s name.

FALL IN LOVE {Autumn Wedding Inspiration Board}

As much as I love the Summer, as  the month of August quickly approaches, I cannot help but think of the fast approaching time for Autumn and Fall weddings.

I love the colors that the leaves turn and the deep hues of orange, golds and browns that surround us in nature.  There is so many details that can be included into your Fall wedding which will make it unique and a truly memorable one.  I had a Autumn wedding and really used burned orange colors to my advantage.

Below are some inspired ideas. One direction to go is with pumpkin-inspired  decor which is always fun and will put your guests into holiday mood.  Be sure to use it sparingly and creatively!

Another direction for a beautiful Autumn-Fall weddings is to blend hues of burnt orange, gold, coppers and creams throughout your wedding theme. Below are some fun ideas.
