6 Wedding Planning Secrets from Fashion Blogger Liz of Late Afternoon!

When the world of wedding vendors and fashion bloggers mix, the elevation of pretty is mind blowing. Yesterday, that combo came in the form of Liz of Late Afternoon and this citrusy slice of whimsy from Rebecca Yale and Twofold LA. Liz flawlessly fit the role as she is an engaged Bride-to-be herself. So today, we’re diving into planning tips she’s putting to use along her wedding journey!

Choosing Your Wedding Style

Focus on a main theme and don’t let all the possible options overwhelm you. Not everything you love on Pinterest should make it into your wedding.

Plan Together

Include your partner in the planning. It’s important for Sam and I that the wedding represents both of us. I’m lucky that Sam is an artist and shares my aesthetic.

Timeline

Set your own timeline. Don’t let expectations dictate your schedule!

Photography

A great wedding photographer is worth the investment. I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with a lot of incredibly talented photographers over the years and have seen first hand how difficult yet magical it is to capture the intimate moments of your most special day.

Floral Selection

Choose seasonal and locally sourced flowers. It saves money and is Eco-friendly.

Cocktail Hour

It’s all about the cocktail hour. My favorite weddings are always the ones that have a cocktail hour with light bites before the reception. It lets people mingle and enjoy the atmosphere.

From Twofold LAOur initial inspiration for this shoot was derived from the beautiful vibrancy of California’s citrus season. With an emphasis on citrus tones paired with lush greens and pops of white, the classic Mediterranean architecture of this stunning Bel Air residence was fused with more whimsical elements to cultivate a dream like quality. Breathtaking floral moments such as a garden of hanging wisteria by Celadon Celery, romantic floral arrangements by Emblem Flowers and an oversized floral headdress by Wild Vase helped each scene blend seamlessly into the already lush surrounding landscape. Beautiful fresh faced Los Angeles based blogger Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon looked both elegant and effortless in dresses from Monique Lhuillier paired beautifully with breathtaking gems by local jewelry designer Deanna Hamro. With an incredible team of creative vendors the shoot came together to strike a balance between that undefinable sense of California cool and elegant opulence.
