Instagram Wedding Weekend :: La Venta Inn

This past weekend we had a gorgeous wedding at La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes.  M + S tied the knot in a beautiful celebration.  After months of planning, we were seriously awaiting this very special day.  Here are a couple teasers.

In love with this gorgeous bouquet by Pixie’s Petals!  This last one is just the sweetest of the couple!

Looking forward to sharing some more soon!

Our Latest Wedding Wire Review!

We absolutely LOVE and are always so grateful for our clients who leave us reviews!  Here is the latest one from Lorena and Octavio.

Wendy from Just Wenderful is amazingly talented, professional, and understanding throughout the entire wedding planning process! From the day my now husband and I met her we knew that we had to hire her. She was always organized, listened to our every need and ensured that we stayed within our budget. She gave us amazing vendor referrals and I have no complaints about who we hired. Most of all, Wendy’s creativity and vision was much more than anyone could ask for! Though I was indecisive about what colors/theme (and other things too–sorry Wendy!) to have for our wedding, she managed to stay true to our original vision and our wedding was beautiful, organized and stress free for myself, my husband, and the rest of our family!

The day of the wedding, her team: Rocio, Andrea and Jesse were fabulous! They teamed up with Wendy to make sure that everything ran smoothly and that we were on schedule for the days events. They handled difficult situations like the electricity going out very well and remained calm and collected at all times. They’re also a fun bunch and got along well with my family. Lastly, Wendy was able to do what many people can’t do: design and organize a modern Mexican wedding with a splash of tradition and a flare of fun and romance!

Wendy is Just Wenderful!

Also, I just found this piece of advise that I completely agree with!

Less than a week and a half to go until C + J tie the knot! 

Tuesday Shoesday!

As usual, I was on Pinterest when I ran into these beauties.  We are absolutely in love with these Valentino shoes! They define perfection, don’t you agree?  These shoes were featured in a wedding on Style Me Pretty and might I add, the wedding was drop dead gorgeous, see for yourself here.
Happy Tuesday shoesday everyone! 
We can’t wait until the end of the week is here, looking forward to Saturday’s wedding.

Bridesmaids :: Same or Different Dresses?

I personally love the new trend that was started perhaps 2 years ago where brides started having their bridesmaids dress in different dresses, same color or even different dresses, same hue of a certain color.  One of our weddings in June will have bridesmaids in different long, chiffon dresses but within the same cobalt blue color and I just love it!  I can’t wait to see the ladies!

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Wedding Dresses to Impress

This one image has been going around the blogosphere like crazy because it’s just plain beautiful!

What a gorgeous back right?  Earlier this week, I shared a picture that Calligraphy by Jennifer had posted on Facebook.  This one was it:
Drool!  These are a couple more that I’ve found that make me want to get married all over again just to wear this kind of stunner.

Maybe a little heavy but oh-so gorgeous.  I wore a simple wedding dress but I just changed my mind.  Hope the hubs is reading this.  Two more years for our 5 year anniversary, ahem.  🙂
Happy Friday lovely readers!

Anemone Love!

We’ve posted about some other flower favorites like the peony, the ranunculus, and the dahlia but now it’s time to give the anemone some love!   I think I’m stuck between the peonies and anemone’s for my favorite ever spot.  Anemones are pretty, especially the white ones!

Here’s a little arrangement from one of our past shoots.

Even our tablescape for the first Utterly Engaged contest the very first year had anemones!

I’m loving these invitations from Momental Designs!
I know there are anemones in other colors but the white and pale pink are my absolute favorite.  I love the pink, red, and purples as well though.  So vibrant and unque!  Which is your favorite?

Push-Up Pops

This Last Friday I was able to meet Courtney Dial of Pizzazzerie and she is the sweetest!

She signed my copy of her book Push-Up Pops and let me tell you, there are some recipes I’m sure Rocio and I will be trying out!

Looking forward to trying the Snicker’s Caramel Pie and the Oreo Cheesecake! Oh and thanks to Candee by Sandee for snapping this picture of us for me!

Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012

As usual, one of our favorites is Monique Lhuillier.  She never disappoints and all her collections are all pretty much swoon-worthy!  Here are our favorites from the Fall 2012 line.

This first two are so sweet, feminine and romantic!

This one is classy and timeless.  I love the fabric over the shoulder!
