"The concept for this stylized wedding shoot was a laid back farm feel with a touch of vintage glamour I knew the location had to be at Heaven's Ranch in Chino Hills, CA because it provided the perfect backdrop of an unpretentious surrounding that exuded a warm rustic feel. I want to thank Janelle Copeland and Fabiola Gomez from The Cake Mamas for the amazing wedding cake they did (did I mention it took them 15 hours...but the way it turned out--I'm smitten!!). I love the way they incorporated those vintage ruffles and the silver accents. And the flowers! Oh the flowers-- they are by Andria Ibanez from Divine Blooms and Designs. I loved the use of the tin, turquoise, and lace. The flowers looked so farm rustic and gorgeous! Because we love rustic details in a wedding we decided to do something fun with place cards. No more reading to figure out where you're sitting. These guests will look for their photos that they previously uploaded and sent to the bride and groom. Pictures were then attached with a ribbon on an apple that could later be given to the farm to feed the horses (yes, that's edible ink). We also love that guests don't have to walk around aimlessly looking for...

Start your week off right with a sweet Texas wedding! Melanie Daniell & Matt Bowling's wedding under the giant oaks of Texas has a dreamy country feel to it. The men were outfitted in fresh crisp blue jeans, khaki blazers & naturally cowboy boots & a hat or two! The gals donned handmade mix matched floral dress by the bride's mother! It was of the utmost importance to Melanie that they married outside under the giant sprawling oak trees, to which her dream came true when they discovered Cathedral Oaks Event Center. A sturdy branch above their ceremony space was outfitted with mums which hung in glass globes in a very Labyrinth (Ps-talking about the movie) way. Tables were decorated with a combination of white mums in mason jars and birdhouses with blue wood planter stands to display their personal photos. I must say however, I am absolutely crushing on the wedding cake! Rich butter cream frosting that was whipped and styled left to be a star in and of it self! Delicate pink roses and mums were draped down the side as a finishing touch! The cake & the wedding is so very country chic!

Seriously, can we just chat a moment about the checklist of awesome that is happening in this wedding?! Mix matched floral bridesmaid dress, a carnival frame ceremony backdrop, hand drawn wedding couple cartoon art, a succulent garden, various cheeky, family owned & thrift store found vintage decor touches, oh and a light blue Betsey Johnson dress wearing gorgeous bride! Phew, holy run on sentence batman, but so worth it! I am so very much in love with this offbeat wedding that reflects the couple style & personalities to a T. The bridesmaids are equally stunning with perfect hair & make-up, while the groomsmen are as dapper as ever. I think the reason this wedding reaches out to me as it does, is that it is so very clear to see who Bailie Scott & Curtis Burgess are and I love that they used their wedding a place to show case that!

Japanese-studies majors Kathy and Deas quickly became college sweethearts before moving to Japan to teach. It was in Japan that their love blossomed and Deas proposed! Because Japanese culture has played such an important role in their lives and relationship, Kathy and Deas did an elegant Japanese theme for their (rainy day!) wedding. Cherry blossoms accentuated pale pink centerpieces on tables marked with woodcuts featuring English on one side and Japanese on the other. The bride and groom sat beneath their own specially woodcut Mrs./Mr. signs, which also featured traditional Japanese symbols, and guests dined with bamboo cutlery and plates. The cake, also featuring a delicate cherry blossom motif, was topped with traditional Japanese dolls, and traditional Japanese engagement origami decorated tables. Kathy's girls carried fans down the aisle in place of bouquets, and perhaps the sweetest detail of the wedding (other than Kathy's hot pink wedding rain boots) was the wall hanging of classic Japanese origami cranes... made by Kathy's students as a farewell present!
