Get ready for a breath of fresh summery air, my dears. Pinks and corals and fresh grass aplenty and it's making my heart ache for those sun-soaked June days to come. With a bright and beautiful gallery from Eyelet Images, I can almost smell the sweet bouquets and feel the warm breeze on my shoulders!

From the beautiful Bride… Our goal for the big day was to throw an elegant yet youthful wedding with our favorite people in the world. Between the ballroom princess dress, the 1910 timeless architecture of the country club, and the stunning flowers the night was a true fairytale. The wedding was more than we could ask for and was beyond anything we had envisioned it could be.

With the help of my insanely talented aunt Sue Tippitt, also our florist, we were able to have the over the top garden feel we had wanted. She used a collection of varied colored blue/green succulents, coral and white garden roses, white dahlias, lambs ear, dusty miller, African imported berries and eucalyptus leaves. On top of the help with the flowers, a different incredibly talented aunt, Dana Parks, along with my grandmother helped me put together the tablescapes, ceremony programs, and delicious “H” embroidered coral sugar cookies. Many others, including parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends, contributed to creating the perfect wedding day for both Jeremy and me.

Given that we did not have an official wedding planner during our 9 month engagement, I decided to take on many of the wedding projects to create a unique and individualized touch. With a bit of an art background, I took the liberty of designing our wedding invitations. My maids were kind enough to help me with assembly while we watched our favorite TLC wedding shows. I also created our table numbers, escort cards, wedding signage, and other personal details.

We both envisioned our wedding in a beautiful outdoor garden so when we discovered the Altadena Country Club we were thrilled! The natural beauty of the venue made it easy to have an exceptionally stunning wedding. Sitting along the Sierra Madre mountains and overlooking the valley with its huge windows made the venue a must.

Our favorite part of the evening was definitely the massive dance party we had at the reception. We had the most energetic, fun group of people we could have asked for to make our party rock all night. Following the lovely reception and awesome dance party, we were sent off with a gallon of confetti. My great grandfathers 1930’s Clenet was waiting to whisk us away; the perfect ending to the perfect night!
