Each and every inch of this Temecula Valley wedding from Marisa Nicole is dripping in romance and organic beauty. With a color palette of blush, wine, raspberry, mauve, purple and gray, details like organic-inspired flowers from Enchanted Garden Floral Design and personal touches from the Bride and Groom’s passions (her background is in dance; his is in hockey) truly wow. See it all, thanks to Andrew Abajian, in The Vault!

From Marisa Nicole EventsThuy-Van & Steward got married in wine country, at Temecula Creek Inn’s Stone House venue. The couple wanted to host a celebration that reflected who they are as a couple, generally laid back with just a splash of fancy and a ton of fun! We worked with them to create a look that was swoonfully romantic, naturally organic, and with aesthetic variety around every corner. The stone house at Temecula Creek Inn is surrounded by trees, so it gave us a lovely rustic base that we added layers of personal and design-forward details.

We worked with a pallet of diluted hues paired with bold pops, incorporating wine, raspberry, Mauve, Blush, Deep Purple, Blackberry, Light Grey, Dark Grey, and touches of greyish blue. We used a mix of textures, a variety of lines and tons of glow throughout the space. We paired farm wooden tables with neutral light and textured hemstitch runner and napkins to serve as a base for our florals. We used a lush garland with big ruffled blooms and candles woven throughout to create a full sense of full-on romantic enchantment on the guest dining tables.

With Thuy-Van’s background in dance and Stewart’s background in hockey, we had lots of fun sprinkling a few of their personal items around the space. The bride’s own sister did all the chalk art and the bride herself handmade the watercolor seating cards. Amongst the fancy dining and fab decor, the couple wanted their guests to experience a playful, light-hearted celebration. They offered a photo booth, lawn games and glow-ball (glow in the dark golf) on the on-site course. Inside the stonehouse, we brought in comfortable, yet luxe, lounge furniture, board games galore and an array of bite-sized treats that would satisfy even the most potent of sweet tooths! Everyone danced, ate and played the night away and a legendary time was had by all!

From The Bride…Our favorite part of the whole wedding weekend was seeing our two families merging so seamlessly. It was so heart-warming to look around and see everyone mingling and laughing, and now they’re all friends on Facebook! As for our favorite aspect of the wedding design, it had to be what I’m calling “cohesive variety.” You know that we emphasized variety in everything, in the colors and textures, in the ceremony readings, in the food, in the music (Patty Griffin, Star Wars, Dean Martin, The Nutcracker transitioning into the Beatles), in the activities (lawn games, glow ball, s’mores, photo booth), etc. Our highest priority was for all the guests to find something they enjoyed. We wanted the wedding to have something for everyone, but we still wanted it to feel like us. We like so many things, and it could have been a big old mess, but Marisa, our wedding planner, made everything come together in a really classy way.

Where does a former Miss USA go dress shopping for her wedding day? At Kleinfeld’s on Say Yes To the Dress, of course. She chose a convertible Pnina Tornai for a traditional ballgown look at the ceremony turned curve hugging silhouette at the reception and to say we’re obsessed is putting it lightly. The Bloom Of Time designed the florals, Cake and Punch planned the day, and Natalie Schutt + Theater 10 Films captured it all. Watch Nia’s SYTTD dress shopping adventures tonight at 9:00 EST/6:00 PST on TLC!

From Natalie Schutt PhotographyFormer Miss USA, Nia Sanchez married the love of her life, actor Daniel Booko, in a fairytale-esque wedding that took place in her hometown of Temecula, California on October 17, 2015. Temecula Creek Inn’s Stone House was the perfect setting for this enchanting wedding which was attended by A-list celebrities and other former Miss USA beauty contestants. Nia surprised everyone on her big day with a convertible dress that she chose during her taping of Say Yes To The Dress at Kleinfield’s in New York City. The episode and wedding will tonight!

From the beautiful lounge areas, to the fun bridal parties, to the oh so special first touch & prayer, the day was absolutely timeless and magical. Daniel’s father officiated the wedding, which took place in the gorgeous glimmer of golden light. The entire day was beyond wonderful.

The Ultimate Modern Wedding Inspiration

How incredibly beautiful is this inspiration?! It’s enough to make anyone want to say “I do” again. From the Bride’s beautiful updo, to the lovely all white bouquet, Blueberry Photography has captured all that (and SO much more), and we’ve got it all just waiting for you to favorite in The Vault!

From Blueberry PhotographyThe Art of Broken Pieces

“… to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part.”

Often when we talk about marriage, we focus on the joyful memories when love is most abundant and overflowing. What we tend to neglect are the moments of doubt, anger, sadness, and fear. It is in these times from which a true love is built, through the prospect of letting a relationship fade away. We reflect on the totality of it all, from conception to the hypothetical future, and the authenticity of each other’s emotions. Here is where we decide to give up or to keep pushing forward, learning each other’s quirks, knowing when to let go of an argument, to discern pettiness from principle, and to understand how to be a selfless companion. This is the kiln that forges the vessel where love remains.

That vessel is what we hope to exemplify with Kintsugi, the Japanese art of rejoining broken ceramic pieces with gold lacquer. The philosophy behind this practice embraces values of restoration and finding beauty in imperfection. The photo shoot we present to you is a blend of simple design with a complex message that lies within the gold-filled cracks of each ceramic plate.
