As you know from yesterday's post, when I saw Pamela Lerfald & Nick Davis's wedding photos I quickly jumped on board with doing a 2 day feature of this adorable couple from engagement to wedding! If you missed the Tour de Fat inspired Beers & Bike engagement session check it out here! Now onto the main event, yes?! Keeping with the bicycle theme, Pam & Nick expertly wove 2 wheeled fun machines into a well refined slightly off beat gorgeous wedding. Bike elements were incorporated everywhere from escort card displays, table numbers, guest gifts to even their unique take on a wedding cake! This wedding has everything from a sweetly done first look to completely lovely photography which really gives you a strong feel of not only the emotions but the moody weather our couple faced! Pam is a doey eyed stunner whom the camera seems to be utterly smitten with and Nick is simply old school handsome. This wedding has a lot of wonderful simple touches that prove not every wedding needs to be dripping in crystals to make it chic.

Oh my dear friends, its only Monday and we are off to a wonderfully sweet start!! Candy as a wedding theme is not exactly a new idea, however, time & again, its the execution that separates the doers from the triers. What on earth am I on about right? Ideas are great in theory, but if the taste level isnt there, the creative execution & most importantly design savvy, the simplest of ideas, do not pan out as expected. LivingSimplicity, along with some other stellar British Columbia vendors came together to create a world of vintage rustic charm providing the perfect background for a Wonka worthy Candy Theme. Utilizing a gorgeous old school floral pattern, the plates along with the distressed wood tables offer up a place for the candy dream to take flight creating whimsy at every turn. Rock candy, reinvented cotton candy, cupcakes, giant rainbow swirl lollipops, taffy, and so much more playfully join together in harmony. Vintage books & their pages are used to create a familiar design aesthetic not only on the tablescape but in the bunting as well which frames the dessert table. Pops of lace & pearl serve to soften up the rustic wood tables, giving a light feminine touch to the overall feel. Dynamic florals in strong technicolor hues provide powerful bursts of color in the form of garden roses, peonies, billy balls and my own personal OMG is that....Meringue in the bouquet?! Absolutely brilliant! I love love love the act of incorporating sweets into the arrangements themselves in a lovely complementary way! With this shoot as a styled guide, I hope to see a surge of many more stunningly sweet affairs!

I have a special Monday morning treat for everyone! This gorgeous wedding is light, bright & chalk full of stunning colors to wake up your senses! Larissa Carter & Tony Smith put on one lovely affair out at the South Coast Botanic Gardens in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Larissa & Tony achieved a feat not always easy to meet, creating a down home slightly rustic wedding complete with mason jar escort cards, seed box planters, & an outdoor reception with perfectly styled lanterns all the while keeping it classic & elegant. While those components are wonderful, its the In & Out Burger & CoolHaus food trucks that take this wedding to a whole new level, never mind the stunning sunset....rainbow! Oh & just a heads up, the groom & his men have a bit of a surprise for our bride! I love it!
