Why We Can’t Get Enough of This Bride’s Bouquet

There’s nothing like kicking off the weekend with a bang, and these bright, coral peonies have certainly done the trick. But they’re only the beginning of a stunning waterside affair, with so many heirloom moments woven in along the way. Kristin La Voie captured every bit waiting for you in The Vault!

From Kristin La Voie PhotographyOur sweet couple Kensington and Michael have known each other forever (since Kensington was 15!) and they shared a very intimate wedding with their closest family and friends (about 25 in attendance) at the Lodge at Pebble Beach, followed by an intimate dinner in a library room at the Inn at Spanish Bay. Tons of family heirlooms were incorporated into the wedding, including a 1913 pin passed down for generations that women in Kensington’s family wore on their wedding day (which can be seen pinned onto her dress), table runners made by her Great Great Grandmother, her Grandparent’s cake topper, her Great Great Grandmother’s ring pillow, and more, which start back in the 1800s!

The entire day was absolutely breathtaking from beginning to end. Their ceremony took place on the green at the Lodge overlooking the most beautiful blue water and the famous Pebble beach golf course. It was like a dream! Their cocktail hour continued over at the Inn at Spanish Bay with it’s picturesque rolling hills (with it’s own bagpiper!) and crashing waves. All of their guests sat at one long table for dinner, inside a library private room. The bride and her friends even surprised their guests (and groom!) with an ode to Beetlejuice with the “Day-o” song and dance!

Why No San Francisco Wedding is Complete Without a Cable Car Entrance

San Francisco is arguably one of the most iconic cities in the world — the Golden Gate Bridge, the Victorian architecture, the rolling hills, and, of course, the cable cars. And at their glamorous wedding, Kristen and Steve made the ultimate grand entrance, arriving to their reception in a charming San Francisco cable car. See every pretty moment, thanks to Jasmine Lee Photography, in The Vault!

From Jasmine Lee PhotographyKristen and Steve were married at the beautiful James Leary Flood Mansion in San Francisco. Many of their closes family and friends joined together to celebrate their nuptials.

Their wedding was inspired by blush, champagne, and cream colors. Kristen’s bridesmaids all wore long sequin dresses paired with white bouquets. Their reception was elegantly set by McCall’s SF using clear chargers with gold rims, gold glitter-dipped escort cards, and votive candles.

Kristen, Steve, and their entire bridal party arrived “San Francisco style” to their venue by riding on a cable car. Their ceremony was heartfelt and emotional. Tears were shed during their personal vows as they were almost written identical to each other. Guests were captivated by how perfect Kristen and Steve were made for each other. It was the perfect day celebrating Kristen and Steve’s marriage!

All White Wedding Inspo That Proves Cactus Is Totally Chic

For those of you that think white is totally underwhelming, then you’re invited to peek at this pretty in The Vault from the ladies at Lovelyfest. Because this lovely little inspiration? It’s kind of everything. Complete with cactus details and major style moments (hello tassel cake, leather envelopes, and boho bride), Jen Rodriguez Photography captured it all to share!

From the ladies at LovelyfestWhen we dream about all the places we’d like to travel to in the world, Tulum, Mexico is at the top of our list. With it’s white sand beaches, historical ruins and effortless bohemia, it is definitely a one-of-a-kind destination. Even though we weren’t able to travel across the globe for this shoot, we took inspiration from it to create a high-end, textural, all-white wedding. This wedding inspiration is fit for a modern, upscale couple who loves that Mexican vibe. We were inspired by the romantic, natural feeling of the Riviera Maya, and centered the shoot around a natural palette of greens, white, ivory, grey, terra cotta, and wood.

Living on the California coastline, we are surrounded by wedding venues that are both very put together and polished, and those that are less ‘finished’. With the latter, we are able to use decor and our imaginations to completely transform spaces into our bride and grooms’ dreams. That’s precisely why we chose this empty greenhouse as the location for our shoot. The moment we laid eyes on the barren, white-washed greenhouse, the ancient ruins in Tulum came to mind. We knew our palette would go perfectly inside, and that with the right decor and vendors, the magic of Mexico would come alive.

With high-end weddings it’s important to reach out to vendors that go above and beyond in their craft. For this shoot, we carefully curated our vendor team and were lucky to work with some of the best in the industry. We had the opportunity to raid the warehouse of Elan Event Rentals, and pick out furniture (more like art pieces) that would capture the essence of Mexico. Because he travels around the world to source his rental pieces, it didn’t take long for us to find what we needed. The sophisticated construction of his wooden furniture paired with his intricate and detailed accessories lent us the cohesive Tulum vibe we were after. One of our favorite pieces was the hand-carved black and white skull that lent a slight edginess to the overall mood. Floral genius Stella Bloom Design created the most incredible textured arrangements to top the dining table with, full of all-white florals and touches of cacti and palms. The florals were accented by handmade terra cotta pots, all-white pillar candles and simple yet beautiful stemware and china. We wanted to bring in each color of our palette into the tablescape, and Rosey Calligraphy’s sun-dyed Saltillo tile place cards pulled everything together perfectly.

Paired with a white-on-white tassel layer cake from Papercake events, a cactus grove reaching over 20 feet in height, and the most beautiful Mexican model couple, this shoot resulted in a high-end wedding that would fit perfectly in Tulum. Or anywhere for that matter! With flawless makeup and hair by Jess Wilcox, a gorgeous lace Rue de Seine gown, and a Frieda-inspired floral headpiece, our bride effortlessly pulled off an upscale and bohemian look. Jen Rodriguez photographed everything in her timeless way and it couldn’t have turned out any better. Now get us all on a plane to the Riviera Maya!
