Sunny SoCal Fall Wedding Inspiration

Fall is pretty unique here in Los Angeles. We don’t have leaves changing colors and the crisp air enticing us with scarves and boots.. no, it’s hot. It’s muggy and it’s hot, and nothing is changing colors except for the sky that is filled with smog. Haha I know that sounds so negative but it’s true! But I still love Fall! It’s a sign of the seasons changing, even if it’s not crisp and cool… we know some coolness is sure to come. So this is where my inspiration came from. Bright sunny SoCal in the “fall” drawing from deep mustards, and soft blushes and paired with beautiful wood and gold accents. We wanted it to look and feel like Fall, yet still staying true to our California roots. We are so thrilled that this shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks – so be sure to check that out, as well as the rest of these gorgeous photos from Simply Adri Photography!

DIY Geometric Table Runner


Awhile ago, a shoot I styled and designed along with Stephanie Collins of Flipbooth LA was featured on 100 Layer Cake. During the planning, I learned that Stephanie knew how to “screen print” at home and I immediately knew we needed to document her skills for a killer DIY post to go along with it. What good is a wedding inspiration post, if we can’t give them some hands on tutorials, right?! So, I thought I’d share this fab tutorial with you all in case you missed it! This table runner is not only perfect for a Boho Art Deco wedding, but it would be so perfect for your next  dinner party! So, check it out and let me know what you think!

Jane & Chandler’s Fullerton Wedding

This past summer was filled with so many gorgeous weddings, and it’s like Christmas in November getting all the images back from our favorite days. I had been working with Jane and Chandler for well over a year while they were in search of the perfect space for their vows and I’m so thrilled with how all our hard work paid off. Jane pulled an all star team of vendors together and it was pure magic. With the gorgeous backdrop of Villa del Sol paired with all the gorgeous greenery and touches of white – it was truly a stunning day! Be sure to see all the handmade details below captured perfectly by photography duo Seth & Kaiti

Friendsgiving Recipe Inspiration

After Thanksgiving recipes-2042-X2

A few years ago, I got the opportunity to style a “friendsgiving” shoot for Lauren with some of my favorite people. This shoot was particularly special, but how you’d expect. Not because the location was the “most amazing spot ever” or because we had professional models who regularly grace magazine pages. And not even because I had some killer DIY’s to contribute or mega sponsors to provide me all my favorite pieces for the tablescape. It was incredible, because well, the food was out of this world. And… it was just, real life. The location was my side yard. The “models” were just all us friends. The decor was simple, beautiful, and TOTALLY attainable by anyone (hello, Target and World Market). The centerpieces were so amazing because we used WHEAT, yes colorful wheat found at the farmer’s market – and cotton, yup, cotton. It was so fall/wintery, and incredible. I loved every bit of it. Oh, and did I mention the FOOD?! Continue Reading…
