Romantic and Modern Ebell of Los Angeles Styled Shoot in Blush, Cream and Metallics


We're so, so excited to share with you something we've been working on! We have teamed up with some of industry's best to stylized a photoshoot over at Ebell Los Angeles. We fell in love with the architecture and all that this space has to offer when we were invited to participate in a wedding showcase earlier this year. Together we dreamed up a design with fresh spring colors like muted blush, mauve, cream and metallics. A big thank you to Teresa Marie Photography for photographing all the beauty and the rest of our vendors (listed below!) for your efforts and hardworking making this one of our best shoots yet!


Dreams America Linens draped the ceremony structure while we, Burlap & Bordeaux, created the perfect florals to accent it. Hand-tied and custom designed, we made sure to have the florals cascading down and wrapping around the base of the altar to create a romantic and whimsical look. Amigo Party Rental provided the rest of the rentals like the gold chiavari chairs to complete the look.

The reception was a beauty of its own. Hammered copper chargers from Soiree 8 were a fun touch next to the creamy velvet linens and paired perfectly with the pink vintage glassware. We brought in a dreamy chiffon runner from Dreams American Linens and a few vintage pieces including a settee and fur drape to add a touch of intimacy. 

No details were left untouched. Kelly Patrice created absolutely the gorgeous paperie and calligraphy for our invitation set. We were sure to add a lot of details such as hand-painted macarons from Roni’s Sugar Creations, glittery mini donuts from Custom Cupcakes by Sarah and stunning cake from Cake Studio LA.

Our models Nicole and Katie were made flawless by Bliss Bridal Beauty and wore dresses by Kinsley James and Kennedy Blue. Desert35 added the finishing touches by providing fragrances for the girls.  

Overall we loved this traditional yet modern twist styled shoot we put together. There was such an elegant feel to everything but when you get up close and see all the details, there’s a fun touch to it as well and we can't get enough of it! Keep scrolling to see all the beauty!

Venue Spotlight: The Hotel Californian


Last week we had the chance to visit Santa Barbara's brand new beautiful venue - The Hotel Californian. We thought it was only fitting that we also shine a little spotlight on them because we were so head over heels after meeting them and learning all that this property had to offer!


The Hotel Californian features Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and modern Moorish interior décor from one of our favorite celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. This seaside destination features a rooftop pool and event deck providing panoramic views of the coastline and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Not to mention its 2,850 sq. ft. ballroom, together with an adjacent 4,500 sq. ft. plaza, a 3,670 sq. ft. rooftop event deck and five flexible meeting rooms with private patios make this place the perfect location for your next event or wedding! Farm-to-table catering and craft cocktails featuring fresh, local produce and provisions will be sure to delight and complement the space.

Impeccable architecture and design, warm service, ocean views and inspired cuisine set the stage for your big day. They only do one wedding a day so the exclusivity is a nice touch. We can't wait to host your next event or wedding here. Contact us today and we'll make your dream event happen at The Hotel Californian!

Romantic Red Wedding at Santa Barbara Rockwood Women’s Club


Our beautiful bride Joanna wore a detailed off the shoulder gown and carried an organic hand-tied bouquet with pops of burgundy, whites, and peach while our groom Peter was dashing in a dark charcoal suit. Together they shared their vows outside in the courtyard at Santa Barbara Rockwood Women's Club with handstrung blooms and we cannot wait to show you all the details of this dreamy, romantic red wedding!


For the cocktail hour, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed appetizers with their drinks and even a fun vintage photobooth from Docle Inc. During the reception, the guests found their seating listed on a scroll of paper with their names handwritten in calligraphy and attached to these metallic pumpkins while a string trio played in the background.

Tabletops were flooded with romantic candlelight, light chiffon runners from Dream America Linen and pops of colorful centerpieces by Burlap and Bordeaux. The red draping of the room added to the romance of the night and we completed the room with wooden tables and chairs from Elegant Event Rental to give it an overall natural look. SPARK Creative Events helped further that ambiance by providing lighting. 

Martino’s Catering served up dinner and Sugar Lab Bake Shop provided the beautiful three tiered cake with an light grey design with some loose blooms. Thank you Teresa Marie Photography for capturing all the moments and details!
