Spanish Style San Clemente Wedding at Casa Romantica

May 19, 2018 | juliette

Brianna and Charlie brought all the tropical boho vibes to Casa Romantica, and we simply can’t get enough! The Spanish style venue was the perfect backdrop for the chic yet laid-back design that Weddings by Cortney Helaine created, which featured tropical greenery and white roses arranged by Little Hill Floral Designs and a DIY macrame sweetheart table backdrop that dreams are made of. To add that classic wedding feel, the couple dressed to the nines, with Brianna rocking a trumpet-silhouette lace Ines Di Santo gown and loose curls and Charlie wearing a classic suit and bowtie. Between the sunset ceremony looking over the ocean and the dreamy atmosphere of the courtyard reception, this wedding was romantic to its core and photographer Chase Sevey captured it all beautifully.

The Wedding:

Casa Romantica, San Clemente, California

When we began planning, we knew we wanted a relaxed vibe that still held the traditional wedding elements. I’ve always loved Spanish style homes, the artsy beach town of San Clemente, and knew we wanted lots of plants and greenery. When we looked at the venue and the boutique hotels within walking distance, we instantly knew this was our venue. We used lots of palms and ferns mixed with white roses, neutral bridesmaid dresses, navy tuxes, peacock rattan chairs, and the 10′ hanging macrame.

Our first look was the most memorable part of the day. We went back and forth if we wanted to do a first look or save the moment for the aisle, but due to the time change and lighting purposes, we decided to do the first look. It surprised me how special the moment was and we loved seeing each other alone for a private moment before going into the ceremony with all eyes on us.

Classic Meets Boho in This Chic El Paso Wedding

May 19, 2018 | juliette

Understated, sophisticated, bohemian, and classic are all the words we’d use to describe Jessica and Alex’s El Paso wedding! This dynamic couple paid homage to their Mexican culture by using a rainbow of jewel tones, displaying handmade Spanish and English table numbers, and serving Mexican hot chocolate in traditional mugs at the end of the reception. The bride also channeled ’40s Mexican cinema actress style with a chic Rosá Clara ballgown for the ceremony — and then let loose with a sparkly BHLDN dress for the reception. Although the couple’s styles differ, Perfectly Poised Events helped them tie them all together into a cohesive look that Jordy B Photo captured in brilliant detail. We are especially smitten with their personal touches of a cigar bar, primping station for the photo booth, and custom neon quote created by Big Media Signs.

The Wedding:

The Church of St. Clement and Private Residence, El Paso, Texas

I wanted to look classic and natural, and most of all, like me. My inspiration was drawn from classic Mexican cinema actresses in the ’40s. The look was chic and effortless. My wedding dress was everything I never knew I wanted! I swore I would never wear a ball gown, but once I slipped into my dress it was over. It was simple, not fussy, and had pockets.

We gave out a few wedding favors. Each place card was handmade out of hand pressed paper with gold foil and hand painted calligraphy. We also served Mexican Hot chocolate towards the end of the night in authentic Mexican clay mugs called jarritos. We wanted to make sure we honored our heritage with touches throughout.

My mom DIYed each table using Spanish clay tiles. She has the best handwriting so she wrote each number in English and Spanish.

Cozy Industrial Seattle Wedding at Axis Pioneer Square

May 18, 2018 | juliette

We are so into the cozy vibes Meghan and Kash created for their winter wedding at Axis Pioneer Square. This venue features Seattle’s iconic red brick architecture, and the couple didn’t want to distract from that unique characteristic. So they kept their palette clean with whites/creams, greys, greens, and subtle pops of mixed metallics and relied on candlelight to set a romantic mood. This crafty couple DIYed nearly every detail, from the signage to the Irish Blessing guestbook, and the overall look was as charming as could be. The bride’s Justin Alexander lace gown and pearl-studded hairpiece were as effortless as the decor and echoed the natural, simple vibe the couple created throughout the entire day. Photographer duo Nick Plus Danée outdid themselves in capturing the understated elegance of this Seattle wedding and stole our hearts with the couple’s sweet first look on the rooftop.

Meghan and Kash

The Wedding:

Axis Pioneer Square, Seattle, Washington

My usual style is very simple, so I was afraid that a wedding look wouldn’t reflect who I am if I did too much. I decided on neutral, light colors. Luckily, my makeup artists double as a long time friend, so we did a few trials to determine what we would go with. Due to the neckline and back of my dress, wearing my hair up was a no brainer. Curled pieces around my face helped accomplish the romantic look I was going for. Trust in my beauty advisors is really how I got my wedding beauty look. I loved the cut of my dress. It worked perfect for my body, which made me feel really beautiful. The overall lace prompted me to choose very simple accessories, which included my maternal grandmother’s pearl necklace (I wore as a bracelet) and my paternal grandmother’s pearl earrings.

Since our wedding was in January, we wanted a cozy, intimate vibe. We accomplished that by pairing candles and whites/creams with the raw brick. The flowers, lace and calligraphy added a romantic feel. It was simple and worked really well together.

Around 90% of our wedding was DIY. The mother of the bride created a portion of the floral displays using fake flowers for different decorative arrangements. The signage, programs, favors, blessing stones (guest book), and dessert bar were all DIY.

The goal of our wedding (besides becoming husband and wife) was to celebrate our love and commitment to each other with our family and friends. So naturally, we opted for a short ceremony. Kash‘s stepfather was our officiant and he worked with us on a script. It was short, sweet, and very meaningful.

Small details go a long way. The best part about small details is they can be very inexpensive. Pay attention to the little things. Alone they may seem insignificant, but added up they truly contribute to the whole atmosphere.
