Cozy Thanksgiving Inspiration in Shades of Copper and Blue

Sometimes I have this dream that {found} vintage rentals surprises me with a full house makeover filled with the prettiest vintage furniture. This is the next best thing. Inspiration for a cozy Thanksgiving meal at home surrounded by vintage pieces perfect for lounging on after an indulgent feast. And you won’t find a typical autumnal color palette here. Instead, visions of indigo and copper are layered throughout. Click here for so much more captured by Joel Maus.

From {found} Vintage RentalsWhen I think of Thanksgiving, I think of a warm, cozy day spent with family and friends and a day of eating and relaxing. Thanksgiving doesn’t just happen around the table…so we wanted to put together some cozy vignettes to show the extension of the day from the dining table to the living room. The color palette remains consistent throughout with the indigo, gray, white, leather, and wood tones. We wanted to stray away from the traditional fall tones, but show that using a cooler color palette can still be warm and inviting.

Traditional With A Twist in Orange County

“A Bunch of Love” is right! This modern take on tradition in Fullerton certainly has us thoroughly charmed. Also note the cool DIY touches the couple incorporated like the aforementioned bunch of love sign and rosemary-infused olive oil for guests to take home. Having a great photographer like Anna Delores to capture it all doesn’t hurt, either. You can get the full gallery here.

From Anna Delores PhotographyWhen Jennica first e-mailed me to chat about wedding photography, I could already tell we’d be a good fit, and our chemistry at the first meeting with her and David sealed the deal. I was ecstatic to work with them and shooting their engagement session at The Last Bookstore and Angel’s Flight in downtown Los Angeles was the most fun I’d had during a photo shoot! We were laughing pretty much nonstop, and they were open to my ideas for great photos (for which they were handsomely rewarded with a wonderful collection of diverse engagement images).

On the big day, both Jennica and David were excited about marrying each other but were also calm and happy, just enjoying the day and soaking up the joy of the occasion. They had a list of the “must have” family portraits, but for the most part the bride and groom simply wanted organic, candid moments captured in their wedding day images. My cheeks hurt from so many smiles while I was culling and editing their collection of photos.

Jennica and David are sweetly romantic (they both teared up just looking at each other during the first look, the ceremony, and the first dance) and genuinely caring, open people. Jennica and David made time to greet each beloved guest during a receiving line before the dinner buffet from Stadium Tavern was served. The love from their friends and family was tucked into every corner of their wedding celebration, including the dessert table, which was filled with baked goods prepared by their (very talented) family members and bridal party.

Their wedding day was a lovely combination of tradition (the ceremony took place at Saint Boniface Catholic Church in Anaheim) and modern-day, vintage-inspired chic details at the reception at The Villa del Sol in Fullerton. Bridesmaids selected their own dresses from a navy and grey color palette and carried bouquets that included thistle, roses, sweet pea, and plenty of greenery. Each setting at the kids’ table included a coloring book, Ring Pop, and glow sticks. The lush greenery runners and floral arrangements from The Little Branch added understated but exquisite elegance to the rectangular feasting tables, and wedding planner Erin Egleston’s execution of all the reception details was flawless.

There were plenty of special touches that were personal to Jennica and David, including their “Bunch of Love” light marquee (a play on the groom’s last name). In lieu of a traditional guest book, friends and family filled out little cards offering advice to the bride and groom. The couple’s signature drinks were Lynchburg Lemonade and a French 75, and table numbers were stamped on the covers of vintage books (a literary theme reinforced by the dessert table’s book page backdrop!). Jennica and David created their own rosemary-infused olive oil favors  for guests to take home. The evening came to a reluctant close with a cigar bar and tons of enthusiastic dance moves.

From the stunning bride… Alex and I are a very active and adventurous couple. Year after year we have watched couple close to us get married and have the typical wedding ceremony in a church and a reception at some banquet hall or hotel. Although they have all been beautiful, it just wasn’t our style and we wanted something both unique and magical. Both of us are from the city of Fullerton and if you have ever been there you can tell right away it is full of rich history and heritage. This is why we chose our venue to be at the Fullerton Arboretum. With an all outdoors ceremony and reception that was both timeless vintage and whimsical in its nature. Many weddings have occurred here yet not a single one used this beautiful venue to its true potential. With a little imagination and elbow grease it was my dream to have the perfect wedding here.

It was still important for us to have a Christian ceremony and very personal as well. Alex’s uncle who is also the pastor of our church agreed to be our officiant. But, the family fun and help didn’t stop there. Alex’s mom agreed to arrange all of our flowers and decorations for the entire wedding. Her thoughts and designs turned out far beyond anything I had imagined my wedding would be and I would not have changed a single thing. Working without the help of a wedding coordinator was a tough job, but being on a budget I knew I was in good hands with my friends and family by my side.
We also had the amazing opportunity to have two of our best friends John and Marlene Koman to be our photographers. They were beyond amazing. We know that pictures are the only thing that you will still have after the wedding is all done and over with. They captured moments of our wedding that we never want to forget. Every step of the way they were encouraging us, helping us, and following up to make sure our day would run smoothly.
