Doesn’t 90+ degrees during the heat of summer make you wish for cooler days? Today’s color card is an ode to fall, the season where textures and colors are always so beautifully layered. Our board today is a romantic mountaintop inspired vision, with a mix of masculine and feminine colors and textures.

Mydolcefarniente – Weddings and Events in Italy

Dear beloved couples,

Thousand of kilometres divide us and you have to take a very important decision of choosing your destination wedding planner. Yes, i know it’s difficult to do without meeting the person. So, before we can have a Skype call to meet each other virtually, just a few lines about me. I’m a Tuscan soul since 2002, can’t stop thanking heavens for having “dropped” me in this marvellous land. Also for me the reason of moving to Italy was love :)
I’m completely in love with the wedding planning that I’m involved in since 2011. Your wedding is my wedding so if you choose Mydolcefarniente, you choose a highly professional team. I don’t apply the same fee for every event. I give the opportunity to the couple to choose the most appropriate solution for their dream wedding to come true. We work in a flexible way and offer different solutions unless we find the right option that satisfies your needs. We don’t have restrictions because the only things that counts is to make you happy.
Hear from you soon, Yuliya

Crafty Los Angeles Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

Alex and Helen’s wedding is the perfect batch of creativity, a day which Helen lovingly refers to as “Our Joyous Day”. The theme of their day was “AH, that’s love” — also the name of Helen’s blog — a tribute to the acronym of their names, Alex and Helen. Christian Cruz knocked these photographs way out of the park. Capturing the ceremony and reception at LA’s own Heritage Square, all coordinated by Danni Hong, who you may also know her from Oh, Hello Friend blog!

From the bride, Helen: I love all things vintage, particularly from the 1940s. Our wedding was 40s-inspired, and our color scheme consisted of my favorite colors: buttercup yellow, French blue, and cherry red. We also incorporated vintage books and library-inspired trinkets, since I am a high school English teacher and my mister is a pastor. When we found our venue, I fell in love with the intricate details and spaciousness of the Victorian house museum that had plenty of room for a ceremony, reception, guestbook area, photobooth lounge, board games & croquet area, and more. I love details and handcrafting lovely things, so our Joyous Day was a huge handmade affair that I supplemented with vintage decor from my apartment and things I collected from flea markets.

We were very fortunate to have a wonderful community of friends and family who were so willing to help with our wedding. We aimed for a budget of $15,000, and ended up spending about $17,000 for a 250-person wedding. Many friends helped to craft for the wedding, and most of our vendors were friends, including our photographer, videographer, florist, DJ, officiants, day-of coordinator, ceremony band, barbershop quartet, reception jazz band, first dance singer, etc. We are so thankful for their sacrificial hearts that made this wedding possible. Executing this wedding has taught us that our relationship is lovingly shaped by our dearest friends and family, and we cannot have a thriving marriage without them in our lives. Our Joyous Day was truly a celebration of love all around!

Dart Collective

DJs • Bands • Party Down

Started as a California-based DJ collective in 2013, Dart has now grown to include numerous live musicians and performers, all with the same simple goal of offering a more customized and personal approach to music curation at weddings and special events.

At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests.

Josh and Jenna chose the talents of Brandon Chesbro to shoot their wedding last year and an anniversary sesh this year to celebrate. So having them as models for this crazy good cozy up shoot at Southall Eden was a slam dunk. Not that we need to tell you, but how beautiful is that altar idea? Love the blanket backdrop!
