Bright Pink Wedding at the Fess Parker Doubletree

We absolutely loved working on Alex and Carson's wedding at the beachside Fess Parker Doubletree. Alex actually interned for me a while back and I was so honored when she chose me to plan her wedding day. First up was choosing the location, and the dramatic rotunda was chosen to host both the ceremony and reception. Alex loved color, and chose to carry a bright pink bouquet while her bridesmaids carried petite white bouquets. Color was also key at ceremony, with a hot pink bougainvillea arbor marking the ceremony spot. 

After the kiss, the couple went and took portraits on the beach, which is right across the street from the venue. Guests were treated to a whimsical seating card display with fun earrings acting as clips to hold escort cards. Long tables were setup for dinner and featured tall gold candelabras mixed with low and lush floral centerpieces. At each setting, mini baguettes served as an edible place card. And finally, Bella Vista Designs setup colorful and dramatic lighting in shades of pink and purple which created the perfect atmosphere for the a wicked dance party.

Colorful Winery Wedding at Gainey Vineyard

This wedding was all about color and fun. The couple, Morgan and Jordan, chose the Santa Ynez wedding location Gainey Vineyard because of its classic wine country views. The bride chose a full skirted wedding dress and her bridesmaids wore bright coral printed dresses. Color was also featured heavily in the flowers, with bright orange dahlias and hot pink roses in the bouquets by Anna Le Pley Taylor. Ceremony was held under an oak tree with a view of rolling vineyards. Afterwards, guests enjoyed lawn games and cocktails. Dinner was held al fresco and featured tuquiose draped tables paired with rattan chargers and florals in gold footed containers. After dinner, Enjoy Cupcakes setup an elaborate dessert station. All was captured by Let's Frolic Together
