Rustic Boho

There’s a certain level of kitch that comes with having a 4/20 wedding. One is having a lot of fun with the hashtag (#packabowlforcole & #coleymatrimony) and two is full creative freedom to play into it. Luckily for me, Jason and Lindsey are one of the most fun couples I know and their wedding day did not disappoint.

We started off the planning process with the general theme of boho fun meets rustic eclectic. We wanted a lot of color, cactus/succulent vibes, crystals for the rock nerds, and a hint of DIY. Basically, we lived in my aesthetic happy place. Our main flowers were: dried grasses, protea, amaranths, poppies, peonies, combo roses, fiesta carnations & blue thistle to tie the batiked napkins/table runners into the party.

For ceremony we wanted to keep that glorious creek overlook the star of the show. That floor arch was one of my favorite pieces to create to mark the ceremony space in addition to the gorgeous rug and lanterns from Party Pleasers. Lindseys bouquet was a Pink King Protea and coral charm peony party. Jason bout is now forever going to be called a “Buddonniere” (zoom in wink wink).

Cocktail Hour was full of family nods. For hightop tables we used small olive wood bowls and ikebana style arrangements to add color. For this portion of the night, Lupin was our main ingredient which was Jason’s Grandmothers favorite flower. Luckily for me it was peak season and it grows wildly in the hillsides above the shop. 10/10 would 6am hike for lupin for you two again.

Reception is where we had all the planning fun. The Sweetheart table is always my favorite. We did one long large arrangement flagged with large crystal clusters with a huge leaf detailed macrame backdrop. The peacock chairs rented from Party Pleasers was the ultimate perfect detail. For the head tables, we had two long rows of the most beautiful ranch style tables. We did large dough bowls in the center of each table and clusters of crystals, cactus arrangements, and cactus table numbers trailing in between each arrangement. It was so gorgeous. For circular guest tables, we did arrangements in small dough bowls that guests could take home at the end of the night.

It was the perfect day captured so amazing by my girls at I Heart My Groom. Thanks Ladies for the amazing photos (as always!).

Modern Beachy

Rincon Beach Club | Carpinteria, CA

Coordination, Catering & Desserts: Rincon Events | Signage: Brown & Co

Meet Josh and Maegan! These two cuties are dear friends of mine and I could not wait to create the perfect day for them. They love the beach and the outdoors so when they booked the Rincon Beach Club for their venue I instantly knew what to do.

For the theme, we went with a modern beach vibes. We kept the colors muted with whites, cremes, blues and light silvery greens. We utilized a few types of eucalyptus for the greens with baby blue eucalyptus being the star of the show. To give us a hint of under the sea vibes, I used anemone (see what I did there), blue thistle, orchids, love in the mist and fluffy garden roses. We really wanted to focus on texture.

For the reception, I wanted to play a little harder into the shell vibe thanks to Sea Things Ventura for a wonderful local sourcing help for this. For cocktail hour, I built mini flower arrangements into barnacles. For table numbers, we lettered locally caught abalone shells and for the bride and grooms place settings, we lettered clam shells. I had my friend Heather of Brown & Co whip up the FIND YOUR SEAT signage which we ombred blue to match the color scheme and used the groom’s vintage surfboard for the seating chart.

It was such a dream of a day start to finish.

Modern Tropicana

Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm | Santa Barbara, CA

Planning: Brilliant Wedding Co | Shuttles: Jump On The School Bus | Signage: Brown & Co

If there is a theme that I love more than anything else, its modern tropicana. Everything is just so luscious and vibrant and it could not be truer than Sean and Sierra’s big day.

With our focal flowers being commodore palms, fan palms, monstera, banana leaves, anthurium, orchids, and protea it made it an easy day to nail the lush green, white and pink color scheme.

For the ceremony we really just wanted to celebrate that view of the upper Santa Barbara coastline. We kept the decor low to the ground with two planter arrangements at the end of the decking. For aisle decor we did two protea and greenery swags which we later repurposed to the sweetheart peacock chairs for reception and tucked fan palms chair side down the aisle. I finally got to work with the epic signage queen Heather of Brown & Co to dress up her welcome sign, seating chart and marble table numbers.

For cocktail hour we kept it super clean. We took the couples air plant collection and potted mini palms for seated tables and use bud vases with a couple stems of anthurium for the hightop tables.

For reception, we wanted to keep the guest tables super low key with commodore palm garlands and Himalayan salt candles. For the head table we did small tropical arrangements and bud vases trailing in between with a large arrangement for the bride and groom.

It was the best day with such a killer group of vendors.
