Orange County Hallowedding

Whimsical Weddings

Photos by:

We couldn’t resist sharing a fun + quirky Hallowedding! April Smith Photography sent over this wedding which at first glance I thought was a fun shoot. Much to my delight, this wedding is 100% real. Just like the bride’s tattooed sleeve. All guests were encouraged to wear costumes, which was popular particularly with the kiddos!

Spreading Lovely

Welcome to Spreading Lovely!  We’re a full service event planning & design company based in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving all of The Golden State and beyond and tailor all services to fit your specific event needs.  Plus, with every booking, we donate 10% to the charity of your choice because we believe in not only making a difference in our clients’ lives, but also in countless other lives we may never otherwise have the opportunity to reach.

Of course we love a great party, but more importantly we believe in love, we believe in a marriage after the wedding, and we love being a part of life’s major milestones and helping you navigate the (sometimes) mountains of details.  With our wealth of knowledge, creativity and experience we’ll illuminate and inspire your ideas to create a one-of-a-kind event that authentically reflects YOUnot us, or what anyone tells you it should be.

We know how to leverage small design details of texture, color and lighting to elevate an event and create the ambiance you desire. We love collaborating to create unique event concepts, after all – it’s your story that makes the best inspiration.  If lots of glitter and bright colors best reflects your fun loving nature, awesome, we’re in!  If an elopement on a mountain top is more your thing, fantastic, we’re in!  Our number one job is to be on your team and provide a voice of reason, guidance and experience to streamline the planning and execute your event more exceptional than you imagined.

We believe you should be fully present and live in the moment on your wedding day, not sweating the small stuff!  That’s why we’re here to make the road to your wedding more fun, more relaxed and more enjoyable by taking care of the planning, design and organization details so you can still make it to Sunday brunch and do more of what makes you happy while celebrating the path to this amazing commitment to each other!

From Nickel Images: I am so in love with this wedding. It oozes these two people’s personalities perfectly. Lucy and Bret met swing dancing a few years ago, and ended up falling in love and eventually, getting married! What I LOVE is that Bret fully embraces vintage, and does so in a stylish, classic way. Just look at his details. Lucy found her vintage 1930’s gown at a boutique in Seattle, along with her sisters 1950’s dress and her mother’s 1930’s gown. Lucy’s veil was also made from vintage and re-purposed netting and embellishments.

For the wedding, they combined all sort of elements to create their perfect centerpieces. Lucy and her mom crochet the red doilies, the wood was from her mom’s house, the touches of cotton were from Bret’s grandparents cotton farm, and the couple even reused wine bottles as vases (they cut the tops off).

Other noteworthy details were the flags for the ceremony. The venue is located right in a flight path, so in order to embrace the airplanes that flew by (about 1 a minute), Bret and Lucy gave their guests flags to wave as they went by. Talk about a great comedic relief during the ceremony.

The Reception was full of dancing (with a live jazz band!), the cake was made by a friend, and in the end, it was a beautiful reflection of what makes these two complete.
