Real Wedding ~ Kate & Brian at Smog Shoppe

Kate and Brian couldn’t have been a cuter couple. Their wedding took place at Smog Shoppe, which was the perfect setting for their beautiful wedding day. Their day was filled with great company, music, flowers, food and a breathtaking succulent wall, which was the backdrop for their wedding ceremony. After the ceremony guests moved inside for a delicious meal and boogied down to their favorite tunes.

Enjoy their fun, colorful details below!  Photos captured by Nick Radford PhotographyScreen Shot 2014-01-16 at 9.05.41 PM

To memorialize the occasion, they were asked to offer their best wishes and sentiments to the bride and groom, which were then placed into a large apothecary jar.

They stood under a beautiful, dark wood Chuppah covered in lace and feminine florals in pinks, purples, grays and whites. Framing the aisle we displayed floral arrangements in wood boxes with scattered rose petals in between at near the Chuppah.

Heather’s Baby Shower

For Heather’s baby shower, we based the theme and colors around the invitations that she selected for her shower. She set the tone and then we ran with the ideas to really tie all the details together. It was truly a lovely day surrounded by her closest family and friends. And I will not forget the expression on Heather’s face when she walked in to the space for the first time to see all of our details come to life.  She was elated!

When guests arrive at the tea house they were first greeted with water, some nibbles and were asked to write Words of Advice to our Mommy to be. HeathersBabyShower-002

Our dear friend and colleague, Katrina from Calligraphy Katrina made these adorable drink tags on Kraft paper and other stationary pieces that you’ll see below.

Instead of a traditional escort card table, we had Katrina create a seating chart so guests could see which table they are seated at. Each table represented a Letter instead of a number.
