Greenery shade is ideal for spring and summer weddings!! It’s bold and fresh and can look chic with green industrial modern colors of copper, gold, and white. But the latest take on palms lately is incorporating palms in their dried form. Once they're dried they become more textured and frayed. Their bright green color fades and changes into softer a softer mint or sage!
On November 11, 2017, at the beautiful venue of Casa Romantica, Brianna Henderson and Charles Albright said, “I do.” Overlooking the ocean, the sun was just setting behind them, and the whole ceremony was surrounded by the perfect sunglow.
Brianna was stunning in a white trumpet-silhouette lace gown as she glided down the aisle toward Charles, a bouquet of soft white roses and flourishing greens in hand. The bridesmaids stunned in perfectly in long blush dress, with the groomsmen complimenting them in dark blue suits with simple boutonnieres. The brides"man" even sported a custom made REAL flower bowtie to match the bridesmaids.
After the ceremony concluded, Brianna and Charles danced into the reception and settled in for a delicious plated meal from 24 Carrots Catering, and a beautiful naked cake decorated with roses matching the bouquets.
Charlie is a fisherman by trade, which leaves a lot of rope around the house. So by nature, Brianna volunteered to MAKE their amazing macrame backdrop. They designed their reception with palms, touches of white ranunculus, lots of clean lines and touches of gold. Each guest had a their places hand scribed with their name to welcome them to the evening and dined under the stars.
The guests danced the night away after dinner to a great cover band to a variety of pop hits. Before the reception concluded, the guests snacked on a late-night snack of mini grilled cheeses and small cups of tomato soup.
With the sound of the ocean in their ears, and a macramé backdrop that Brianna made, who could have asked for a more perfect night?
We had so much fun designing this beautiful wedding at the San Diego Safari Park in Escondido, CA. They had all kinds of WILD at their big day including a kangaroo, cheetah, and even giraffes peaking in to their reception!

We were able to put together a beautiful day at Franciscan Gardens newly renovated indoor brick space which was featured in Ceremony Magazine's 2018 Spring/Summer magazine.
Soft colors and light blues were featured throughout this beautiful day with the bride even wearing a soft blue tulle dress. The day featured a Moon Gate (circle arch) back drop that doubled to show off the sweetheart table for the reception.
All rentals are from Sundrop Vintage with hairpin legged tables and white washed wooden tables used for the bridal party. Their lounge featured a dry ice champagne bar to go with their dry ice wedding ceremony.
It was the perfect day for the perfect couple!
