You Need to See this Fresh Take on Pantone’s Color of the Year

We’ve seen lots of ideas for how to use Pantone’s colors of the year (serenity and rose quartz), in your wedding, but this may be the best idea yet: a serenity blue wedding dress. Pair it with a soft white flowers and organic inspired details for a wedding day as elegant as you are! Head to The Vault for lots of inspiration courtesy of Mallory Dawn Photography and Just a Kiss Weddings and Events!


From Mallory Dawn PhotographyThis romantic and soft wedding shoot was inspired by the clean crisp look of the Lombardi House in Los Angeles, California. We wanted to bring a warmth and softness to this venue yet keep the elegance flowing. We decided that in lieu of a traditional white wedding dress, we would bring color to the venue by having our bride wear a pastel tulle gown handmade in Naberezhnye Chelny, Russia. To compliment this stunning piece we had our groom wear a classic navy suit. With the Lombardi House as a blank canvas, our florals were imperative in adding to the tastefulness and overall timeless grace. We focused on a neutral color palette, sincere emotions, and accentuating natural beauty.

An Insiders Guide on Planning the Ultimate Party

It’s a well known fact that we love ourselves a good party, but planning said party? Well, it’s no easy feat, but thanks to the talented team at Be Inspired PR we’ve broken down the tips what what it takes to take a celebration from casual to crazy fun. Read on below and find even more party inspiration in The Vault!

Decor

Make it eye catching! Have a few really cute areas for people to take great photos in front of! It’ll make it memorable and it’ll look really professional. Also, fresh flowers really bring a space to life…not to mention they smell amazing.

Space

Utilize all of it! Get creative and hang things from the ceiling if you want. Balloon chandeliers (an easy DIY!), projected bar menus and suspended dessert displays are all great uses of hanging space.

Seating

make sure there’s plenty of space for people to sit! Cocktail parties are great for mingling, but heels hurt. Style cute seating vignettes around the event to give your guests a place to lounge.

Food

Pay attention to the time of your event. If it’s during a meal time, make sure you’re feeding your guests! Even if it’s small tray-passed bites, you don’t want guests to leave early because they were too hungry.

Drinks

While a full bar isn’t always necessary, adding a fun signature cocktail to your wine selection will give your guests another beverage option. For your non-alcohol drinkers, an aguas frescas station brings them in on the libations fun. If you place your flavored water next to the dance floor it can also double as a hydration station!

Music

The beginning of parties is always the most calm, especially for evening events. Bring in a small quartet to play some lower key music for your earlier guests to enjoy. As it gets later, start the DJ jams and get everyone on the dance floor!

Dessert

Always have something sweet because a party without cake is just a meeting, right? Make it interactive so guests can pick and choose what they want or even see it being made on the spot.

Party Favors

The best part of any party! Send your guests home with a little gift as a thank you for coming. It can be anything from a sweet treat to a bottle of wine. You can personalize it too so they think of you when they use it!
Documentation

As the host you’ll likely be too busy “hosting” (aka attending to last minute to do’s and mingling with guests) to appreciate the event as a whole. Make sure you have someone there to capture all the excitement on film so you have something to look back on after.

HAVE FUN!

You worked hard on planning your party…Now it’s time to make memories and enjoy yourself and your guests!

From The Bride… The seeds of our love story were planted in high school where were started as best friends. We sprouted and grew throughout college at our alma mater, Cornell University. Despite the headwinds of long distance, we truly blossomed in the following years to come. Having been a part for a few years of our relationship, we thought it would be amazing to celebrate our marriage and return back home together by having a wedding in Los Angeles with our family and closest friends.

The Four Seasons Hotel Beverly Hills at Los Angeles was a fabulous venue with best-in-class staff and service. The venue had the perfect combination of a lovely garden ceremony, a covered outdoor cocktail hour, and an elegant ballroom reception – simply a dream come true.

We wanted the night to be elegant and entertaining, with splendid pops of color, delicious food and inspiring drinks! We brought in florals that reminded us of the gorgeous rose blossoms from the Huntington Library, our favorite spot to enjoy in our hometown. The day was perfect and we felt lucky to have everyone celebrate with us. We are incredibly thankful for a wonderful wedding team that made this day so special!
