From The Bride…I feel that Anthony and I are the epitome of ‘what’s meant to be will be’, and that theme shined through on our wedding day. We fell in love with our gorgeous beachfront venue, so we decided to take on the challenge of planning our wedding in just four months in order to secure our dream location. With the help of the amazing team at Before I Do Events and all of our incredible vendors, it proved to be no challenge at all, and everything easily fell into place just perfectly as it was meant to be, for the big day.

We wanted our wedding to be classic with romantic hints of vintage, and Parisian-inspired touches throughout. Most of all, we wanted the wedding to be ‘us’. From the wood planks that lined the aisle with the things we love about each other (how Anthony proposed), to our personally written vows, to our family-style dinner from one of our favorite restaurants, to our basketball themed grand entrance (yes, my husband dunked in his tux), to our delicious dessert bar – it was a night centered around everything we love, including each other and our dearest friends and family.

Love and genuineness filled the room, and we had a blast dancing the night away. We also made it a point to take some time out together to take it all in, which was great since time flew by. After the party ended and Anthony and I got back to our hotel, and we did an impromptu photo shoot on the beach, and we then found ourselves playing ping pong in our wedding clothes (then maybe or maybe not headed to Jack in the Box). It was the best, most perfect night because it was just so ‘US’.

Blush Twin Oaks Garden Estate Wedding

When it comes right down to it, blush tones always steal my heart. But this lovely garden soiree from Heidi-o-photo? The blush palette stands for sooo much more. From the bridesmaids dresses and the Bride’s brother donning a pink suit to the florals and linens, blush was a symbol of strength and hope for this Groom and his beautiful Bride, who had been diagnosed with breast cancer twice in the last two years. Not only is this garden soiree romantic-as-ever, but it shines with the most beautiful love.

Romance

From the beautiful Bride… Trevor and I first met when I was on vacation in Laguna Beach, California in March of 2009. Right away, I could tell he was sincere, and I knew he was an overall “good guy”. We hit it off from the first minute we met. I flew back to Austin, Texas with stars of hope in my eyes. We kept in contact and took turns traveling to see one another in a whirlwind romance. Five months later, I trusted my instincts and moved to southern California to be with him. Five years later, here we are happily married!

After getting engaged in April of 2012, I researched several different venues near and far that would best represent our partnership. We both enjoy being outdoors and our favorite seasons are spring and summer. I have always dreamed of getting married in an intimate garden filled with beautiful flowers. After being engaged for 2 months we stumbled upon Twin Oaks Garden Estate, and our springtime wedding was officially in the works. Both of our lucky numbers is 4, so it was a complete coincidence that the ONLY available date that fit both of our schedules was April 4, 2014. We both agreed it was meant to be!

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding. It was definitely a family affair! Many amazing details of the wedding were made possible by our family members. My talented mother created all the centerpieces and floral. My creative father is responsible for building some of the props, including our own customized corn-hole game. My brother helped assemble each centerpiece and was there for support in any way possible for my parents and me of course! Together, they created a magical scene! Yes, they drove an 18-foot trailer from San Marcos, Texas carrying most of the décor and supplies, not to mention the beautiful cake that was made by Simon Lee Bakery (The cake was still fresh and AMAZING…thanks to a special cooler made by my dad.).

Trevor’s charismatic uncle was our officiant and added some much needed comic relief when our nerves set in. He is the brother of Trevor’s late father, who passed when Trevor was a toddler. Having him take part in our special day meant the world to both of his family and us.

As for the details, my favorite was definitely the “memory table” in which we displayed wedding photos of our parents and grandparents. Some are no longer with us, but they all hold a very special place in our hearts. Our cake topper is another sentimental detail. It has been in my family for about 100 years and will continue to be passed down to future generations. Most of all, we enjoyed celebrating and sharing our special day with our closest friends and family.

We chose the main color to be blush as it holds a very special meaning to the both of us. In March 2012, and again in February 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. From the blush roses, to blush peonies, to the blush bridesmaid dresses. My brother even wore a custom made Gatsby-inspired pink suit in honor of my fight. For Trevor and I, this wedding was a symbol of strength, hope, and lifetime of good health for our wonderful families and dear friends.

Modern Beach House Wedding Inspiration

Backyard weddings are one of our favorite genres. They’re personalized and cozy and dripping in laid back elegance. And if that backyard happens to be mere feet from the ocean, consider it a whole new level of awesome. This photo shoot is oceanfront beauty paired with chic modern details and the idea of a casual beach house get together. Conceptualized and crafted by Lavender & TwineCassidy Rae Events and These Bud’s A Blooming, these images will have you rethinking that backyard affair and maybe moving it seaside.

From Lavender & TwineThe inspiration for this modern and romantic shoot was sparked by an incredible tiled wall–a wall accenting a one of a kind modern beach house. We wanted to help couples think outside of the box, and inspire a fresh take on a modern beach wedding. With a mixed palette of neutrals, greens, and whites with pops of oranges and gold, this is the perfect combination for a modern yet elegant wedding.

The stunning floral arrangements were provided by These Buds A Blooming. Allie put something together more gorgeous than I ever imagined. I mean, did you see that bouquet?! The soft textures in the arrangements combined with the edginess of the succulents and pops of color are a perfect fit with this modern vibe.

Incredible linens were provided by La Tavola. The textured grey linen cloth was the perfect anchor for the table design with dishware provided by Town and Country Rentals. The modern print napkins added a little something extra special. The custom silverware gave the perfect balance of modern elegance.

The cake was provided by The Sugar Lab with a last minute placement of an air-plant as the cake topper. It was the perfect finish to the intentional imbalance of the cake. The use of geometric shapes and blocks made this cake truly something special.

Our gorgeous bride looked amazing in a Paolo Sebastian gown that continued the grey palette through the wardrobe. Crystal Robinson Makeup did an amazing job styling the already stunning brides hair and makeup.
