Wedding Wednesday: A California Eclectic Romance . . .


I am so excited to bring you the stunning California Eclectic Wedding of Carly & David this Wednesday . . . just wait to you see all of the gorgeous details; just so very pretty & personal, and the vintage touches combined with the always perfect Southern California weather just makes for the most sunny & lovely affair!  Take a look . . .





And on to the lovely little reception . . .


I am so crazy for these strings of lights and the mismatched chairs . . . perfect!


And the couple had a silhouette artist present to create 2 silhouettes for every guest, couple, or family . . . one for them to take home and one for them to leave for the bride & groom.  What a wonderful way to commemorate who shared your big day with you!



'They framed sweet quotes that Carly + David say to each other (“I love you to the moon and back”), as well as favorite romantic lyrics (“Love Me Tender”), and placed them among the guests’ dining tables. They also incorporated some Carly-isms wherever they could! “Bless your heart” was used on the drink flags and “Goodness gracious” was on the pie table.'


So in love with those blush-hued cocktail glasses . . .




A word from Amorology, the event designers . . .

"As soon as Carly told us that her colors were oatmeal + blush, we began thinking up different ways we could weave the use of oatmeal through out the wedding – besides just the color palette! From floral centerpieces with oats at the bottom, to favors, to the oatmeal toss that showered the happy couple as they exited, we subtly incorporated oats wherever we could.

Our favorite was indeed the oatmeal toss, where we handed guests tiny envelopes that read “Oat to Joy!” For the favors, the couple purchased oatmeal soaps that we wrapped in custom coordinating floral fabrics. These sat at each place-setting and greeted guests with a fun tag that read “Scrub a dub dub, thanks for showering us with your love!”


The oatmeal to toss . . .




I just love it when a bride changes into a 'send-off' outfit.  So retro & chic . . .
