If there is one day we love on SMP (ok, we love them all) it is Wednesday. Wednesdays mean hour after hour of pretty-as-can-be parties to help keep your inspiration flowing all the live long day. Your refresh button is sure to get a workout today, but we think you can handle it. To keep you entertained in between refreshes, the full galleries of each soirée are filled with so much lovely you won't know what to do with yourself. So nice, right?
Let's get started, shall we? I think it's pretty clear that I love details, shoes and puppies. In no particular order. So you know this detail-filled affair by Intertwined Events was an immediate favorite. It's full of a few of my favorite things - pretty shoe wearing bridesmaids all lined up in a row? Check. Heart melting puppy? Check. Seriously sweet details? Check. The lovely Brittany of Brittany Rene Photography was there to capture all the pretty and was sweet enough to fill the full gallery with enough lovely to hold you over until the next feature! Aren't Wednesdays grand?
From Intertwined Events...From the moment Saundra said yes to Ryan’s proposal of marriage she spent hours each day combing through the endless ideas, images and inspiration from designers, vendors and brides on Style Me Pretty. Her wedding was infused with the bold and sophisticated palette of black and white stripes, bright citrus green and hot pink, accented with shiny metallic tones. Without going over the top, Saundra wanted to incorporate a feminine palette that was soft, romantic and timeless and was able to customize each of the projects she loved from her favorite wedding blog to create her dream wedding!
From her DIY table numbers, favors inspired by the creations of Sweets Indeed and a photo booth with props that kept the guests entertained for hours on end, this wedding had it all. All of her styled elements were beautifully showcased against the beautiful hillside backdrop of the Aliso Viejo Country Club. Hanging lanterns, flowers and chandeliers adorned the cocktail reception and dance floor. Small votives numbered in the hundreds and were strategically places throughout the ballroom and tables so that everyone was cast in the flattering and romantic candlelight! What a vision!
While, never forgetting her Mexican roots, Saundra included a Mariachi Band, beer margaritas, and dessert table with homemade family favorites showing just how much she cherishes her heritage! The sweetest touch of the evening was that custom homemade dessert table entitled – Love is Sweet! Each of the amazingly delicious desserts were crafted by different family members from each of Ryan and Saundra’s families. It was a wonderful blend of families, cultures and tastes! Not a single detail was overlooked and the hours of love poured into each project was seen and felt by everyone who was lucky enough to enjoy this joining of man and woman. What a sweet treat!
