Moody, Bold and Romantic Wedding Inspiration at Saddle Peak Lodge


We're thrilled to share our moody, bold and romantic wedding inspiration styled shoot at Saddle Peak Lodge. Designed and planned by Karen Marie Events. we provided the absolute most gorgeous floral arrangements alongside  with smoke bombs and oversized balloons. With so many details captured by Michelle Ramirez, we can't wait to share them with you all. 


Ventura Rental Party Center provided beautiful furnishing including a settee and romantic tabletop chargers, glassware and more for the reception design. Karen's team added a dreamy, flowy chiffon runner from Dreams America Linens that helped our dark and moody blooms pop against the wooden table. Lastly, details such as handwritten menus from Shelby Creative Design that made us completely swoon were placed on each place setting for a personalized touch.

With more than just a reception design, Karen's team designed a full dessert display too. Donut walls are super trendy and always a favorite among guest so one was dreamed up and the team made sure to include a cake by Sugar Lab Bake Shop for the display!

A special thank you to Karen Marie Events for having us come together to work hard on this styled shoot with her! Along with Cheek to Cheek Artistry for makeup, Camarillo Bridal Boutique for attire, Wings Jewelry and Gifts for jewelry and Scarlet Walker and Stephan for modeling! 


Bridal Musings feature Gatsby Meets Gaucho in Argentina


So excited to share that Bridal Musings has featured our styled shoot named "Gatsby Meets Gaucho in Argentina"! Keep reading for more details and photos from the beautiful shoot.


"The polo fields and bed and breakfast of Puesto Viejo Estancia set the scene for this luxurious, boho bridal shoot. With flat fields of green, well-manicured lawns and an old-world estate, Burlap & Bordeaux had a blank canvas to design this bohemian dream. Popping blooms of pale pink, and tangerine, the crew went more “luxe” than “rustic” for this countryside scene.

Perhaps the best display of this upscale design is in our bride and groom’s attire. Wearing a set of different boho gowns and sparkling headpieces, the bride gives off a Gatsby vibe, rather perfect for this luxe polo estate. Saving the gaucho look for our groom, we love the idea of a classic, Argentinean hat to pair with more modern menswear duds.

We worked with an incredible team of vendors. The venue provided tables, catering, cake, venue space, polo player and horse and hotel accommodations. We worked with Akende Eventos to provide the furniture, ceremony arch, and decor.

We had our own makeup artist, Jenna N and photographer, Steven Leyva Photography brought in from the states. I brought over the linens custom made from Dreams America Linens; a cream velvet linen with a sheer tulle overlay for sweetheart table adorned with hand-sewn crystals and pearls.

Our invitation suite was custom made by Lauren of Lauren Lauren Lauren and calligraphy by Teagan. We used three custom-made dresses and jewelry from Catalina who was onsite during the shoot to style the models. Her dress designs are absolutely breathtaking!" - Claire Eliza, Bridal Musings

"If you’re on the hunt for ideas that will take your wedding to next level romance, then this editorial at Ebell Los Angeles is about to become your number one. Feast your eyes on this whimsical soft pastel wedding romance that packs a punch of Spring fever with loads of texture. Coordination, design and floral of Burlap & Bordeaux quenches your thirst for all things color with unexpected combinations of muted blush, mauve, metallic and creamy neutrals.

At first glimpse this vision comes across sweet and traditional, yet as you take a closer look at all the details that have been careful considered there is a fun modern touch. With the use of varying, fresh spring color blended with soft pastel and loads of texture the scene is not only whimsical but romantic. Details from the hand painted macarons, mini donuts, and extravagant florals stand out immediately. The subtler use of the hammered copper chargers is a fun touch next to the creamy velvet linens. Of course, for this whimsical soft pastel wedding romance to really hit home, a gorgeous backdrop like the Ebell Los Angeles doesn’t hurt either." - Strictly Weddings, see the full feature here.
