Tuscan Villa-Inspired Santa Monica Wedding

This is the sort of wedding that makes your heart happy: a backyard meets totally elegant charmer planned to perfection by Carly Rae Weddings and filled with vibrant blooms from Primary Petals.  It’s one part boho, one part Tuscan beauty and all parts pretty… just the way we like it.  See it all captured in gorgeous images from Anna Delores Photography in the full gallery.

From Carly Rae WeddingsKatie and Jon’s Italian-inspired wedding materialized with many meaningful touches from the Bride herself. Katie, who comes from a large family, chose to get hitched in her childhood backyard in Santa Monica surrounded by her closest family and friends. Primary Petals provided lush garlands and greenery to bring the backyard to life, and Urbanic and Rock Paper Scissors tied to it all together with the paper goods (Katie hand-painted the roses herself!). All in all, this rustic Tuscan wedding had many meaningful touches that made the guests feel right at home.

From Anna Delores PhotographyKatie and Jon selected Palihouse in Santa Monica for their “first look” photo op; this boutique hotel was a perfectly chic choice for the Bride and Groom portraits before heading to Katie’s parents’ home for their ceremony and reception. Katie and Jon’s organic, authentic day focused only on the traditions that the couple held dear; their ceremony acknowledged Jewish traditions, while Jon and Katie decided to skip the bouquet and garter toss.

Katie’s dress was a customized Claire Pettibone gown, and she wore a family heirloom emerald cuff bracelet; her earrings and necklace were also inherited from her grandmothers. Amy Clarke created a beautiful look for Katie’s hair and makeup, with a lovely undo that Katie was able to let down after the ceremony for a slightly more relaxed vibe during the reception.

Elegant Backyard Wedding

I’ve seen a lot of gorgeous backyard weddings in my day, but never one as ethereally romantic as this.  A sweet mixture of soft, sophisticated details, dahlia-filled blooms and luxe muted tones all add up to a day that can only be described as uber-elegant.  Add in one heartwarming moment after another captured by Diana McGregor and, voila.  Pure, unadulterated perfection.  See it here.

And a beautiful film from David Chang for even more pretty…

From The Bride… Before Matt and I were even engaged we knew that we wanted our wedding to be in my parents’ backyard. Precisely measuring the backyard, I calculated that we could fit 175 guests. My mom thought we could comfortably fit 90! We settled on 140.

The style and color scheme evolved from the decision to have a backyard wedding. I love all things navy blue and was set on having navy blue bridesmaid dresses, but with the outdoor setting, I wanted the beauty of the backyard to shine without distractions. I settled on letting my bridesmaids choose a cream dress of their liking.

A majority of my time planning the wedding was mulling over the flow and logistics of the event. I found that a well-timed and smoothly operated wedding is ideal. So romantic, I know! I was adamant about one location for ceremony and reception. There would be no re-parking for me or my guests! There was so much peace to wake up in my parents’ home and not have to rush off to a venue. It all happened there. We also did photos ahead of time. We were relaxed and able to finish all of our bridal party, individual and family photos with time to spare before the wedding.

My absolute favorite part of the ceremony was the string quartet. It was on my wish list since day one, and we had members of the Santa Monica Symphony perform songs Matt and I selected. Live, classical music elevated the ceremony to a whole different level.

It also misted five minutes before I walked down the aisle. It was beautiful.

This colorful photo shoot, planned by PopUp Weddings By HME with fabulous florals by Missy Fine, all at the Santa Monica Pier, has given me the boost of energy I needed… and provided some bright ideas for my next soiree as well.

Whimsical

From Popup Weddings By HME… The inspiration for this shoot was the beautiful Santa Monica Pier. Our new company, PopUp Weddings by HME, can plan weddings in some of California’s most iconic and unique locations, such as the Santa Monica Pier. When deciding which spot to host one of our first styled shots, we thought what better place than this! We decided to play off of the fun and bright colors the Pier has to offer as well as bringing in the carnival touches such as the tickets and the cotton candy maker. With our bride dressed in a short, lace dress and our groom in a gray, tailored suit, we were ready to mix tradition with modern and fun twists!
