From Melissa Biador PhotographyThis local colorful and modern geometric inspiration shoot was put together by a handful of San Diego wedding vendors. The creative team wanted to showcase a fun filled, eclectic and modern twist to styling a wedding.

This styled shoot featured a non-traditional bridal gown from the designer Monique Lhuillier and a brightly colored magenta dress from Badgley Mischka both from Rent the Runway. Menswear was provided by A Better Deal Tuxedo, a local San Diego suit/tuxedo shop.

The colors were modern, bold and bright and infused with a mix of colorful centerpieces with Jonathan Adler vases. Many of the custom wooded laser cut items (table numbers, the “hashtag”, heart shaped blocks for table numbers) and custom Malvi cake signs were created and designed by Nic.Roc.Designs. The items featured a fun and modern look to this inspiration shoot.

This faux wedding was photographed at The New Children’s Museum, which also houses some of the most interesting exhibitions for children and adults alike as well as weddings and other events. The NCM was a perfect setting for this styled shoot!

From AmorologyShortly after Scott Lembke proposed to his darling bride Mia Deterding, their friends quickly coined them “The Lem-dingers” and their new mash up name seemed to be ringing with inspiration. We set out to create a “Lemdinger” of a day for our sweet duo with antiquated bells and rustic romantic touches among a gorgeous country setting.

Mia and Scott were wed under a birch, bloom and bell structure that we created in collaboration with Twigg Botanicals while guests waved ribbon wands of mini bells at the conclusion of their ceremony to celebrate.

Following cocktail hour and lawn games, the dinner bell was wrung and invited guests to wash up at our water basin station and escort card display where each person was given their own tea towel and table assignment. Table names perched in cut birch logs were named after various flowers with the description of their meaning such as Camellia, which in the language of flowers means “longing for you” and the California Poppy which means “Sweet Dreams” or the Lily of the Valley that means “you complete me”.

Guests were favored with homemade strawberry jam by our bride with tied tags that read “the more the berrier”. In exchange, guests left hand-written letters and memories to Mia and Scott that they tucked into old wood mail slots. After dinner, the party took to the dance floor, while some cuddled by the fire in warm handmade quilts by the bride. It was an evening as comfortable and warm as the two of them, filled with the kindest of people and a love that we know will last a lifetime!

If you have a love for all things French or an affinity for a good glass of bubbly then you will adore this gem to bits. It’s French countryside by way of Sonoma captured in such a pretty way by Jose Villa. With layered neutrals, hand-crafted signage and wildly elegant flowers and garland designed by Flower Wild and planned by Rosemary Events  this talented bunch has made some serious magic.

From Rosemary Hattenbach of Rosemary Events … Marilyn & Spencer came to me in search of the perfect intimate, European style setting for a French inspired wedding. We found it in a charming Sonoma villa on a beautiful 75 acre Sonoma Ranch and designed a wedding for them celebrating all their favorite things – all things French.

Their hilltop ceremony was at a lookout at the top of the ranch with views of the surrounding countryside. Marilyn arrived in a vintage Rolls Royce. Kate Holt from Flowerwild added the finishing touches to the already gorgeous setting with loosely grouped herbs tied with silk ribbon streamers on the aisle. Garlands of Pittosborum lined the path. Framing the couple on either side of the stage were large baskets spilling with clematis, bridal veil, spirea, garden roses and other various blooms.

Afterwards, the couple led a procession down the hill to the home where the reception was held. On arrival guests sipped champagne and enjoyed a selection of artisan cheeses and charcuterie while listening to the sounds of Ever Music Jazz ensemble. The delicious French inspired meal was prepared by Ramekins, Sonoma and featured many of Marilyn & Spencer’s favorites.

Guests dined on a beautiful stone patio set beneath towering redwoods where they were seated at long wood tables. The area was lit with stringer lights and tons of candlelight. Gorgeous white florals and caramel roses were set on a burlap runner that was laid over a layer of very loosely woven cheesecloth on the wood tables for a softer more feminine feel.

At each place setting ceramic coupe chargers were graced with a white & taupe grain sack striped napkin from La Tavola Linen. Atop the napkin was a “taupe on white letterpressed” menu and a singular bloom of garden rose. At each guests’ seat was a hand calligraphed place card in the form of a mini butcher paper scroll that wrapped around the stem of the wine glass.

A French wine riddling rack from Chateau Sonoma was filled with floral and little butcher paper cones for guests to drop well wishes for bride and groom

When guests came back into the house for dancing, the room was a glow with amazing candelabras. A beautiful dessert station & wedding cake by Sweet on Cake offered a sweet finish to the meal. Marilyn even arranged a surprise Guittard Hot Chocolate station for Spencer so he could indulge in his favorite after dinner treat. The couple kicked off the dancing with “Let it be Me” by Ray La Montagne and didn’t stop dancing until the bitter end. It was a gorgeous evening.
