Red + Pink Malibu Mountaintop Wedding

Any wedding that includes a mountaintop vista, a rose covered floral installation and a pop of bright color is a winner in my book. And thanks to the talents of WINK!Seed Floral plus yummy eats by Eco Catersthis Malibu beauty was all that plus sooo much more. The always fab onelove photography captured each bit, and there’s even more pretty right this way.

From onelove photographyChristina and Tyrone are world travelers, and so when they selected the place they would marry it had to be somewhere incredibly special. What better place than a mountaintop vista overlooking sprawling vineyards and the Santa Monica Mountains? SEED Floral made magic with hues of red, coral and pink. She created a 15×15 foot floral installation of red roses in the reception space, and an incredible altar on the cliff. A gospel choir serenaded the couple during their ceremony “Going to the Chapel”. WINK! collaborated with Archive Rentals to create a masterpiece lounge space.

Brideside + A Giveaway!

I love being a bridesmaid, but I have to admit… bridesmaid dress shopping?  Not so much.  Because as much as I adore hanging with my besties, trekking around to one bridal store after another isn’t really my idea of fun.  Enter Brideside, the chic online boutique that will change the way you operate with amazing gowns, a personal stylist, a seriously simple ordering process AND a chance to win $500 towards those dresses of your dreams.  Stunning gowns + an amazing giveaway?!? Yes, please.

Gorgeous gowns, sans drama – that’s how Brideside operates with a plethora of beautiful designs to choose from, all with the help of your very own personal stylist.  And the best part?  You can do it all from the comfort of your own home, and even try on the gowns before buying.  Bridesmaid dress shopping has never been so fabulous.  Here’s how it works:

Meet Your Stylist - Browsing gorgeous bridesmaid frocks online just got amazing with the help of one of Brideside’s FREE personal stylists.  Think of them as your very own wedding-style expert who will walk with you step by step throughout the entire process, from helping you create a “closet” of unique + oh-so-chic styles to keeping track of all of the specifics.  And Brideside introduced Jenny Yoo gowns this month, which means even more amazing styles to choose from.

Invite Your Besties to Your Brideside Closet - Now that you and your stylist are filling your Closet with some of the prettiest frocks imaginable, invite your bridal party to view your choices for those much-needed second opinions. And when you add or share a favorite, your stylist can see all of the happenings, so she is totally in the loop.

Try It On at Home! - Want to try on the dress before committing?  Once you have narrowed down all of the wedding loveliness to three must-have styles, Brideside will send them to you or your bridesmaids in a Brideside Box!  That means an at-home fitting party with your own shoes, jewelry and a little (or a lot!) of champagne.  Soooo fun.

Order “The One” - Now that you’ve chosen the perfect gown, you can work directly with your stylist to be sure everyone is fitted properly and that the dress of your dreams is ordered for each and every one of your ‘maids.  Oh, and it’s shipped directly to you.  It’s seriously awesome, and seriously stress-free. Seriously.

I know, I know… you can’t wait to get started with Brideside.  Visit their website now or, if you live in Chicago, make an appointment with a stylist here.  You can thank us later.

the-giveaway

What: Brideside is giving away a $500 credit to one bridal party! 

How: Simply sign up here by April 15, 2015 to be entered to win!

Good luck, lovelies! xo

From Ashley KelemenFollowing their intimate backyard wedding, Jessica & Zach wanted to have a major party with all their friends and extended family! Their chic cocktail party overlooking the beach in Malibu was a perfect setting for a serious celebration (and gave them the opportunity to hit the beach for their portraits!). The whimsical florals by Moon Canyon were a gorgeous contrast with the modern decor of the Annenberg Beach House, and the sunset and cafe lights created a perfect romantic setting for the evening.

Seaside Southern California Engagement

Prepare to be swept away SMP’ers, because this e-sesh takes stunning to a whole new level. Surrounded by impressive rocky shores this couple’s bond was captured by Valentina Glidden, and it’s nothing short of amazing. The combination of their seaside stroll, a few sweet kisses, and Malibu’s gorgeous backdrop make for an e-sesh that’ll be cherished for years. More right here!

From the beautiful Bride-to-be… Jesse and I envisioned our engagement session to be soft, romantic, and fun which wasn’t hard when having Valentina Glidden as our photographer! Choosing a location was a challenge for us since Jesse proposed in Hawaii and we knew we wanted to incorporate the beach but also wanted some green in there. We shared our thoughts with Valentina and she was able to recommend two gorgeous locations to capture it all! On the day of we were a bit nervous since neither of us had been photographed professionally before and weren’t sure how the day would go. We were pleasantly surprised on how relaxed we felt! Valentina was so easy going and such a wonderful photographer. She created a memorable experience for us, but most importantly she was able to capture our love. This made me even more excited for our wedding day!

Gold Gilded Goddess Wedding Inspiration

I have a major weakness when it comes to two things – one being gold, and two being the beach. So when Honey Honey Photography captured the combined results of my absolute favorite things in the whole wide world, I am one radiating Bride-to-be. Filled with The English Garden blooms and one perfectly gilded Elaya Vaughn gown, this gorgeous gallery is the perfect place to be. More here!

From Honey Honey Photography… For the naturally undone bride with an air of magic and mysticism. A quiet beauty; bare footed, free, yet with an other worldly elegance. Inspired by royalty, jewel tones and an untamed overcast Malibu beach setting. A breath-taking backdrop overlooking the soft waves and rocky shores – with light peeking through stormy hued clouds. A bouquet with overgrown and wild foliage paired with deep hues to match her jewel tone lips. Her dress dipped in gold, and lace caressing her shoulders and down to her fingertips, complementing the neutral hues of sand and water. Married beautifully with Found Rentals antique velvet chair, tray and antique gold saxophone, a symphony of Edwardian charms. Sweet and delightful Bottega Louie mini cakes laced with jewel toned fruits, chocolate mouse tarts with gold foiled hazelnuts. Hair in a sophisticated and romantic up-do. Delicate gold flecked butterfly details sewn to the train following the gilded goddess inspired bride.
