Sneak Peak: Real Wedding, Michelle & Ramsses Wonderland Wedding

 Here's a little sneak peak of a Wonderland Inspired wedding I did recently with my partner in crime, Lina, of A Stunning Affair.
 We co-designed it and she did all of the fabulous floral decor & the bride found all of the vintage elements like books, keys, bottles, tea cups & saucers, and burlap overlays.
 We did a drink station with Horchata & Strawberry Water & had moss accent just about everything...
 We also used a tree stump to put this drink dispenser, and used another one for the cake to sit on. Loved it!!!!
The bride saw this "hankie" idea at another wedding I did and I still love it. It's so simple, yet so personal.
 And the bouquet was inspired by Jessica Claire's Wedding Bouquet and we accented Michelle's with a burlap wrap & a clock key that she found. I love how it came out.
 Michelle also saw this idea to do a teapot filled with flowers inside a bird cage. I love how it turned out.

Real Wedding: Kelley & Rob, Part 2

 This wedding was inspired by an old southern mansion. The bride & her mother wanted it to feel as if the guests were invited to their home & were wined & dined with the best food, best entertainment, and best decor they could find.
 So we used a lot of vintage elements which were rented from Archive Vintage Rentals and filled with floral decor by Peony & Plum who knocked it out of the park, yet again.
 For the main table we used a natural wood table setup as a kings banquet table with a white runner, china plates in 4 different colorful patterns and auntique silverware from Classic Party Rentals.  

 The cake by Fantasty Frostings was covered in handmade sugar rosepetals and sat atop a fabulous linen from La Tavola. We accented the table with simple mercury glass votive holders, miniature pink spray roses in full heads & petals to give it a simple romantic look.

Inspiration: A Wonderlandia Wedding

I have been on hiatus for a bit from blogging. My husband and I recently moved to Oceanside for his new job and things have been a little crazy. But, without further adieu, here are the images from the Wonderlandia tablescape I did for Hostess With The Mostess' launch party that took place last month in San Diego.
 I couldn't have done this tablescape without the amazing team of vendors including my favorite florist in the world, Peony & Plum, as well as Blue Magpie Invitations and La Tavola Fine Linens.
