mary jane & matt – march 6, 2015

I first met Mary Jane when she was the Maid of Honor in her sister Libby’s wedding that I coordinated over five years ago. Seriously. Where does the time go?!?  I was excited and so flattered when they asked me to work with them again on Mary Jane’s wedding. The women in this family are so creative and have great taste! A killer combo in my book. So I knew that the wedding was going to be amazing. I got to meet Matt at the rehearsal and could see instantly why Mary Jane was in love. Aside from his charm, he is super sweet and most importantly he adores her.

These two lovebirds tied the knot in a beautiful outdoor courtyard with perfectly strung lights and floral accents. A gorgeous chandelier hung above them as they recited their vows and said their I do’s. Some of my favorite details were the flowers, the bride’s dress and her beautiful hair piece. After the ceremony, guests mingled over cocktails and soon after, the real party started. Mary Jane and Matt shared their first dance to “Then” by Brad Paisley . Mary Jane loves Country music so it was the perfect choice. The rest of the night, guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and yummy s’mores by the fire.  All in all, I’d say it was a pretty perfect day.

{Mary Jane & Matt – Thank you to both of you and your sweet families for inviting me to be a part of your big day. I know from the small glimpse into your love story that the two of you have a lifetime of love and happiness ahead of you. I wish you both all the best as husband and wife. Congratulations!!}

Thank you to all of the vendors who helped to make this day so special.

rock star 1st birthday

I’m all about weddings and love that I get so many opportunities to help brides plan their big day. However, I get so excited when I get to take a break from flowers and lace and switch gears to balloons and smash cakes! I was hired by baby Nicholas’ mom to help plan a fabulous Rock Star themed party for his first birthday. At our first meeting, she showed me a few pictures that she had as inspiration and some general ideas of what she wanted. After that, she pretty much let me do my thing to bring it all together. I had so much fun working on this party and putting together all the special details. Some of my favorites include the backstage passes, the dessert table, and the “Party Like a Rock Star” table where guests got to dress-up in rock n’ roll style. The birthday boy looked so adorable and had so much fun partying with all his friends and family. Thanks to Briana with Shoots and Giggles for capturing these great images.

I am swooning over these gorgeous images captured by the super talented Ben Classen. Kristin and Steve decided to make the trek to Julian to Steve’s Grandfather’s ranch. They braved the cold weather and man, did it pay off! I love everything about these pictures. I mean, how amazing is this location?!? I have had so much fun working with this couple on their December wedding and can’t wait for them to say “I do” at Grand Tradition in Fallbrook. Thanks Ben for capturing their love so perfectly!
