A Celebration of High School Sweethearts

Spring is finally here, and what better way to celebrate than to share a beautiful wedding splashed with the bright colors of the season?  This wedding was brought to us by the talented Kim Le Photography and coordinated by Cassandra Santor and her team at Beautiful Day.

Melissa and Ryan, high school sweethearts, came to us wanting a festive wedding full of family and FUN. Melissa chose a vibrant color pallet of pink and purple which was displayed in the beautiful floral arrangements by Janelly’s Flowers, the deep purple table linens, lavender bridesmaids dresses and the pink & purple specialty gobos on the altar wall.

Because Ryan is a service member of in Armed Forces, and a recipient of a purple heart, they decided to use the traditional sword arch as their grand entrance to the reception.  Jay’s Catering provided the delicious meal that the guests enjoyed and danced the night away to the tunes of DJ Carcano.

Favorite Finds @ The Cream: Part Two

A couple of weeks back we had the pleasure of attending The Cream, a wedding showcase featuring the “raddest” crop of vendors in the industry, at the very fun Book Bindery in Culver City.

As we had mentioned in our last post, among the rows of beautiful bridal eye candy there were a few booths in particular that stood out to us, and today we would like to feature Green Wedding Shoes and their creative neon themed display as well as the amazing florals by The Little Branch, Botany, La Partie Events, Twig & Twine and Honey of a Thousand Flowers.

Green Wedding Shoes is an online wedding + style blog that posts daily wedding trends and inspiration from Southern California for stylish & creative brides. GWS also has a plethora of online DIY projects for the crafty bride, so naturally, their booth was full of wonderfully inventive ideas that someone could recreate for their own event. We just loved the oversized paper flowers, paper chains & twine wrapped vases highlighted in neon, and the neon string heart!
