Spring Brunch Inspiration

Tut tut it looks like Spring! We love planning beautiful wedding receptions, obvi, but we also love hosting in our own home probably just as much. Case in point – our outdoor dinner party tips for Lauren Conrad.com and our Valentine’s Brunch! There is something so special about gathering around a beautifully curated table and sharing a meal with friends, am I right? It’s my favorite. So on this somewhat dreary Monday morning, I thought I’d pull one of out of the archives for you! This is a brunch shoot I put together with Marlene Bernstein – chef extraordinaire and Emily Reiter of Anna Delores Photography.

It’s fun, bright, full of DIYs that you can easily do yourself… and there is a mimosa bar. So there. That’s literally all you need to host your girls in the best way.

A Day In The Life

Hey guys. I’m Emilee! This post is all about my life as a wedding planner! The number one question/comment I get once I tell people what I do for a living is: “Oh! So cool. Like JLo?!” My first reaction is like, “ew, no- I’m way more fun and hello… I don’t steal my client’s fiancès. Duh”  But then, I have to realize: 1) People don’t really remember that part in that movie and 2) Most people don’t actually know what a wedding planner/wedding coordinator is slash does all day. So, thanks to my recent partnership with JORD, wood watches, I’m here to tell you all about what a typical day looks like for me!

Sarah & Joey : Topanga Canyon, CA

I met Sarah years ago at a birthday dinner. I had never met her before, but she caught my attention immediately. She’s one of those girls who just says what she means, looks fierce in a sexy dress, and is just cool. So, when she called me up about her wedding, I jumped at the chance to work with her! Sarah officially met Joey at a show he was DJ’ing, and after she wrote him on Twitter. Yes, Twitter. And a romance began on the social media interwebs, if you can believe it or not. Sarah and Joey are the epitome of yin and yang, a perfect compliment to each other. I loved their interactions because it was so apparent how perfect they were for no one else, but one another.

Their wedding was set right before Halloween of last year. Sarah loved the season and wanted to draw on Fall elements, without it being overtly “Halloween Themed.” We did however, put together the raddest pumpkin swag bags for the kids, I might add!

Spring Style w/ Shop Birdie

Last week I had the opportunity to play dress up with one of my favorite new boutiques, Birdie Boutique with their newest Spring styles in Downtown LA in the Arts District. We had my fav gal, Kathrina of Joe+Kathrina shooting for us and we pretty much just giggled our way through the whole shoot haha. Just a group of badass women who run small businesses, supporting each other. Birdie Boutique is based in Norco, CA (right near my hometown!) but you can also make purchases on their website, so be sure to check them out! I love the boho vibe so much when it comes to clothes, but sometimes it can be a little too “festival” and not real life… you know what I mean? That’s why I love Birdie so much. Just the right amount of boho flair – paired with the practicality of everyday living. I’m also a sucker for great fabrics. Anything that feels rich and soft is a win in my book, and everything I got to wear was just that!

Unicorn Bridal Shower Bash

Ever since I dyed my hair purple for my 30th, I’ve been on this unicorn kick. So much so, that’s it’s become contagious. My lovely assistant caught the unicorn bug and dyed her hair pink. And that’s when the obsession took hold. We started dreaming up a party that involved the unicorn theme… but we really didn’t want something that felt like a little girls 7th bday party, ya know the vibe. Not too little girl… but just enough sparkle to make anyone relive their Lisa Frank days haha. Turns out that is a fine line. The result was the ultimate Unicorn Bridal Shower Brunch; filled with sophisticated mimosas, desserts that sparkle and a full on candy filled cake. Because… cake is always a good idea. We teamed up with some amazing vendors to pull this off, so be sure to scroll through to the end to check them out!
