Looking back at 2016

We can't believe this year has ended so quickly. The year of 2016 brought us amazing clients who have become friends, major inspirational wedding designs, and the most epic parties ever! We were blessed to be featured again on multiple major wedding blogs over the months, crafted our buns off, and consumed endless amounts of caffeine but it was all worth it for the beauty and happiness that resulted.

Other big things that happened was that Erin started her own luxury beach towel company called Beach Bum Towel Co. If you haven't gotten one yet, you're missing out! Makes for the perfect gift and excuse to splurge for yourself.

Marina made the big jump across the Pacific and moved to Hawaii! We're thrilled to have expanded as she'll now be doing events both in the islands and back in California. She started a rental company there called Roam Rentals, which has taken off with the demand for boho and mid-century modern designed furniture and d├ęcor.

Enjoy a look back at some of our all time faves from this past year. SO good people!

Keeping Cozy for the Winter Wedding Season

It seemed like a long time coming, but it is finally here! Winter has arrived and we couldn't be more excited. There is something so comforting about the fall season that makes you want to warm up next to the fire with your sweetie and drink hot apple cider. 

That is exactly what we had in mind for the upcoming season. We wanted to share some of our favorite ways to keep warm and cozy at a beautifully brisk wedding. Hope these fun ideas get you feeling warm and fuzzy!

As we all can imagine what better way to stay toasty than a nice crackling fire, with smores to boot! For your marshmallow roasting tools, take a little wander through the woods and forage for some quality mallow roasting sticks. Since we're all about the details, don't forget to wrap some string around the bottom to act as an accented cohesive handle and a nice pop of color.

Always have to have some cozy blankets and pillows to keep guests warm; which is also a great opportunity to add some fun patterns and textures to the wedding design.
Check out the fun DIY for hand warmers too, such a cute little detail that guest will definitely appreciate.

Last but not least, creating a signature cocktail is always a fun way to express the bride and groom's personalities, but try cranking up the heat with some signature hot toddies using seasonal flavors instead.

Pantone's Color of the Year Is...

2016's color selection may be my most favorite yet! In case you missed the big announcement, here it is! Rose Quartz and Serentity... Swoon! Totally reminds me of cotton candy sunsets and it's such a universal wedding palette. Desert Palm Springs wedding? Duh! Napa, Wine Country Wedding? Yes! Coastal beach wedding? Obviously!

Can't wait to see if any of our brides jump on the Pantone train this year, we'd love to make some Rose Quartz and Serenity Magic with you!

Most importantly, don't forget to have some hot toddies simmering on the stove to really experience the holiday fun in all its wintery glory! Enjoy!

And the winner is...

Feelin all the Floral

We've noticed a new trend of floral bridesmaids dresses this year and we hope it sticks around for next wedding season. Love it with all the gals in the same print but different cuts, or mixing things up with different prints and shapes. It's a nice change from the standard convertible bridesmaids dresses, because honestly, who wants to spend 30 minutes trying to wrap and tie their dress? Plus, we just have a crush on floral anything so this trend is a no-brainer!

It's That Time of Year

I think one of the most exciting things about first being married is sending out your first Christmas cards with a beautiful photo from your wedding. I know just the place to find top quality fun and easy Christmas cards... Minted! Yes! I use Minted and I love their selection from something fun and quirky or a beautiful traditional style.
