Inspired by This Colorful Destination I Do Shoot

This was such a fun shoot to be a part of!  Not only was the team of vendors we collaborated with beyond incredible and talented, but the inspiration was so bright and playful that we couldn’t wait to see what Beth Helmstetter came up with!  We headed up to Malibu to shoot on the sand with one of our faves, Braedon Flynn, who captured everything on film.  The entire shoot had a cool vintage, Endless Summer vibe with colored adirondack chairs, huge yellow striped beach umbrellas, and the perfect turquoise beach cruiser.  The bride wore one short and one long Kirstie Kelly wedding gown and the bridesmaids wore fun, mismatched ModCloth dresses that went along perfectly with all the bright, gorgeous florals by Dolce Designs Studio.  We can never get enough of big, beautiful peonies over here!

Inspired by This Tropical Wedding Shoot

When we started brainstorming for this shoot for Rue Magazine, we knew we wanted to create an event that captured the essence of summer.  Gather Events created a design that was rich with lush florals and a playful yet elegant color palette that made our vision come to life!  We decided that the Shangri-La Hotel in Santa Monica would be the perfect setting with its pool deck brimming with tropical greenery and hints of an exotic vacation.  One of our favorite trends happening right now is the hot pink and purple pops of Bougainvillea and Jacaranda so we had Aly Morford from The Vine’s Leaf create a showstopping ceremony altar overflowing with both.  The intimate ceremony space was filled with earthy wooden and glass vessels and woven baskets from Found Rentals while the vintage wire chairs were accented with tropical fanning leaves to add a pop of greenery.  Vibrant floral rugs and ikat patterned pillows from Lulu and Georgia were offset by lovely vintage furniture pieces throughout.  Gather described the romantic lounge cabana set off to the side as a “respite from the summer sun and a perfect nook for the love birds to sneak in a kiss”.  Moving to the reception, the focus of the dinner table was an overgrown floral centerpiece conveying summer’s freshness and abundance complete with real grapefruit accents!  On the menu, the food and drinks are as colorful and refreshing as the florals, with an added hint of Mediterranean spice. Contemporary Catering created a delicious assortment with everything from a honey glazed laughing bird shrimp as the amuse bouche to a Lavender Berry Sparkler specialty cocktail with One Hope Wedding’s Sparkling Wine.  The paper goods, by Wiley Valentine, incorporated the ikat print to tie everything together as well as a dip-dyed napkin with the menu printed directly on to serve as a keepsake for guests.  Gather Event’s advice for a summer wedding?  “Create a relaxed, carefree vibe to keep your guests comfortable, incorporate a seasonal menu to keep things fresh and delicious, and add a healthy dose of eye-popping hues to keep it lively.  Turn up the color, it’s time for summer!”

Inspired By Our Urban Metallic Wedding Shoot

We’re so excited to finally be able to share the shoot we produced for Magnolia Rouge magazine with the wonderful ladies of Sterling Social!  We came up with the concept of an engagement party turned into an intimate ceremony with just the couple’s close friends to witness it.  One of our favorite details of the day has to be the gorgeous hand-calligraphied aisle runner by none other than the talented Laura Hooper…it’s stunning!  A great focal piece right behind the bride and groom and under that amazing chandelier.  The exposed brick throughout the Carondelet House lent the perfect backdrop for this urban inspiration event with lots of modern and metallic decor elements.  A huge thanks to Hidden Garden for all of their amazing florals, Kirstie Kelly for the stunning gowns, and Stephanie Williams from This Modern Romance for capturing it all on film!
