Will & Niki’s Wedding


Drew and I were in a wedding this summer that was SO special and it now being featured on Go look at all the thoughtful details and fun touches the couple dreamed up. Below are some of my personal favorites captured beautifully captured by One Love Photography.

The coolest wedding venue, Santa Margarita Ranch in San Luis Obispo, CA (no relation to the pinot grigio).

How amazing are these invitations Niki dreamed up and a friend designed? The double gun heart is a personal highlight for me.

The bride rocked a J.Crew wedding dress with hot pink nails and lips and the grooms and his men wore gingham.

The groom found these screen doors and made the pinwheels out of paper himself. How cute is that? They framed the couple during the ceremony under that massive oak tree.

The bride bought these assorted pom poms and we stuffed them into wax bags sealed with a cool DIY printer labels.

Lemonade and Sweet Tea greeted guests and the signature drinks after the ceremony were strawberry-vodka and margaritas served in jam jars.

Mini succulents (bought online and potted by friends) were the escort cards and the favor, so clever.

Hands down my favorite detail was the names of the tables, Southern expressions from the bride’s colorful father, printed on cool card stock and glued to wooded sticks. If you have a daddy with expressions this good you must incorporate them into your wedding! Friends also potted those succulent centerpieces about a week before the wedding. Drew was in charge of placing the little rocks in the arrangements, don’t they look perfect?

A twinkle lit barn streaming in twilight, the perfect setting for the delicious Southern Comfort food menu. To protect our party cloths from fried chicken and mac n’ cheese we had paper bibs! See them hanging from the plate, have fun and get messy indeed.

Dessert was a pie and ice cream extravaganza which I did not eat because I was dancing. Nothing beats a RedShoe dance party, not even pie.


Congratulations Will & Niki!






Nick & Amy’s Wedding


We attended the most beautiful wedding a few weeks ago in Carmel Valley. From the moment we sat down at the ceremony we were enveloped into a shimmering aura of love and whimsy, captured so well by Keana Parker of One Love Photography.

The bride and her maids did ALL the decor themselves including the flowers! If I had to pin down a theme I would say it was a Vintage, Rustic, Elegant, Musical Wonderland with pops of purple.

A hand drawn save-the-date and wedding program cover set the tone. Homemade lavender eye pillows welcomed guests in their hotel rooms. And at each place setting, chewy caramels with a side of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt were best when enjoyed together, of course.

Humble coffee tins were transformed by cooper spray paint and frothy baby’s breath or fragrant lilacs.

The bride and her dad DANCED down the aisle to this darling song Crayola Doesn’t Make a Color for Your Eyes performed live.

Those creative, hardworking bridesmaids in 50 shades of violet. Notice how the banister is wrapped in baby’s breath? Love this touch!

The seating cards were hung with mini cloths pins and nestled between wedding pictures of family and friends.

And thanks to RedShoeLA we danced for hours and hours under the twinkle lights. Some danced so much, they even ripped a dress.

In the days leading up to my first wedding anniversary I’m excited to share some of the beautiful pictures of our special day. We didn’t hire a photographer but asked an army of talented friends and family to take pics. We are forever grateful to Jen, Patrick, Beth, Aaron, George and Buck for these memories.
