Take Back The Night Summer Cocktail

Hola friends! I know it’s been a little silent over here the past couple weeks… could you hear the crickets chirping? We were crazy busy preparing our first destination wedding in Mexico!!!! And then we were actually there all week, so things were NUTS in the Tasteful Tatters studio. But we’re BAAAACK! And we have sooo much content for you, I can hardly handle my excitement. First up – my fav new cocktail recipe that my dear friend accurately named, “Take Back the Night!”

Diana & Michael’s Eagle Rock Wedding

Diana & Michael live in DC, and were planning a wedding in Eagle Rock, CA. They were planning it quite successfully actually, with the help of Diana’s incredible family. In an effort to lighten the load on family and make the process a bit smoother, we got brought on board to help with those last min logistics, and we were beyond thrilled. Diana and Michael are probably the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Like ever. And their big day was nothing short of that. There were so many sweet moments, with joyful tears, and the biggest hugs. You could literally feel the love and emotion in the room the entire evening.

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!
