From Pretty Lil Details...Me and my amazing team of gals wanted to colab on a styled shoot for Fall. For this particular event I chose a “Fall in Love” themed wedding. I wanted to capture the regal side of Fall – a season not just filled with whimsy, but also grace. My vision was to highlight the bounty of fall through both the food and décor. I mixed amber tones with a blush pink and added some rose gold for that romantic flare.

I stopped by Pretty Vintage Rentals showroom in Westlake Village and picked out some timeless charming pieces. I fell in love with the stunning amber and pink pressed glass goblets, amber pedestal bowls for florals, beautiful gold mirror trays and florentine trays, as well as some statement furniture for desserts, drinks and a vintage farmhouse table to complete my vision of creating a romantic ambiance.

Next, I thought of a signature cocktail that ties in with my theme. I decided to make a “spiked apple cider”, which highlighted an apple cider mix, champagne, and vodka. I used milk jugs and a beverage dispenser to create a drink station, I then tied cinnamon sticks using twine to each mini vintage milk jug for a special touch. Dinner was a hearty family style with heavy hors d'oeuvres to start.

For dessert, the amazing Frost It Cupcakery created a delectable naked vanilla cake with crystallized ginger layered with pomegranate buttercream. To incorporate the fall theme, the cake was embellished with pretty lil gold acorns.

For florals, the uber talented Sharon Lopez from Knot Just Flowers created gorgeous arrangements with loose fall greens, amber flowers with a lot of texture in crystal glass vases. She wanted to incorporate dried flowers into the arrangements and bouquets to reflect the harvest aspect of fall.

On the table, I chose a pretty rose table runner with white organic napkins. Ceramic plates sat upon antique books used as chargers. I also brought in a variety of staging props such as decorative pumpkins in orange and gold, tons of candles, apples, pumpkins, pomegranates and sprigs of fall leaves and acorns.
