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.

Ojai Vintage Boho

The Morgan House | Ojai, CA

On the prettiest day in October Justin and Sara tied the knot at the Morgan House in sunny Ojai, CA. The Morgan House is quickly becoming one of my favorite wedding venues in Ventura County. Tucked into the rolling hills of Ojai the property features a killer hillside ceremony spot, a modern modern and a beauty of a man made lake for all your photo ops.

I originally met Sara at a wedding she was coordinating back in 2014 were we became the fastest of friends. Flash forward for wedding planning for her, we settled on a vintage meets boho meets Ojai vibe for her big day filled with color, crystals, and lots of hand made touches. One of which was that to die for triangle arch built by Justin himself. We wanted a lot of dried elements- pampas, palms, painted ferns - mixed with the fresh flowers to really pop the neutral colors against.

Inside for the barn reception we kept the tables simple with olive branches, candles, bud vases and crystals.

Once of my favorite pieces for them was Sara’s hair piece full of brown lisianthus, hellebore, berries, and pops of crystal points for extra sparkle. For the bouquet we did a mix of Koko Loco Roses from Grace Rose Farm, Patience Garden Roses, and Quicksand Roses for the focal point. We then mixed in lots of greenery and smaller textural flowers like scabiosa and anemone for darker pops.

Just like these two, it was perfect.

Modern Tropicana

Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm | Santa Barbara, CA

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

Rentals: Party Pleasers | Specialty Rentals: Otis & Pearl | Stationary: Minted | DJ: Gavin Roy Events

Desserts: Enjoy Cupcakes | Photo & Video: I Heart My Groom

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.
