Lucile’s Old Market Wedding

Today’s bride and groom implemented what’s sure to be a new favorite activity into their wedding ceremony — potting their first plant as newlyweds. Bride Chelle is an organic gardener, so it makes sense that the couple’s wedding day would be full of warm tones, lush greenery, and beautiful flowers from I Bloom. Thanks to Mullers Photography for capturing the wedding day!

From the bride, Chelle: I love gardening and we love being out of doors, so we wanted to have a very organic bright feeling. My bouquet was at least half edible plant based (apples, chamomile, kale, berries, etc) by request, and I basically left the specific color choices up to I Bloom. I just said warm colors, and gave a few flower/plant suggestions. My mom painted the figures for the guest table and cake toppers from scratch, and we got a handmade guest book for people to do the Polaroids. The table name cards were Polaroid themed as well. The theme was mainly just making memories and having a very organic, warm, comfortable feel to the day. I always wanted to marry outside, preferably in a garden. Lucile’s was the first and only place I visited, and the courtyard garden, and elegant inside space, was perfect. I am an organic gardener, and wanted the ceremony to have that kind of warm, welcoming and bright feeling. I also wanted to have a “old” feeling to the event, not necessarily vintage but just a feeling that this was part of a long tradition. The cobblestone and ivy colored brick walls outside really embodied that tone.

I didn’t really have a traditional color scheme planned, it kind of just pieced itself together. I wanted warm colors for the bouquet, peaches, pinks, reds, purples. I knew that I wanted bright green napkins for the table to go with the stained glass, and also green’s my favorite color. The week before the wedding Jerrod decided he wanted a red tie, so we bought red bow ties as well for the boys. I know it sounds crazy, but I kind of went about all this organically as things came up! One thing that definitely was planned, was the guest book idea – to buy a polaroid and have people take photos of themselves along with the notes. They ended up taking a lot of other ones too, and we pasted those into the book – the perfect keepsake. Also, the wooden figurines for the guest table and the cake were painted by my mother.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Keep an eye out for ideas, but take your time. I had almost zero stress because two big decisions were made well and early on – location and photographers. Focus on these two, and your florist and after that it’s really just about having fun. I planned a few key things for the event from the beginning, as I had them already in mind for some time, but other than that everything just unfolded gradually. Even things like Jerrod’s tie, and the boys’ bow ties, or the polaroid name cards were only planned a week out from the wedding date, and on an unrelated errand I ran over the weekend. So one example, is that I had no idea what to use for the place cards, and nothing had felt right so far. I was at Target and happened to see a set of polaroid blank cards on clearance for a few bucks. They were beautiful and perfect for our polaroid guest book theme! If you have an open mind, and aren’t too rigid about your requirements, there will be so many things that present themselves to you. Just trust your gut!

Southern Florida Wedding Inspiration

What could ever be more classic than blush pink and gold? Kati Rosado Photography and Emily Grace Design recently brought this charming color palette to new sophisticated heights with their styled shoot on the Florida coast. Don’t you just love those macaron favors that double as escort cards?

From the stylist, Emily of Emily Grace Design: The inspiration behind this shoot was really to bring in the classics of romantic style and combine them with intimate personal touches and details that we love our brides to take pride in. We think personal details make a huge impact on the design of a wedding whether it be a unique pop of something unexpected on the tables or a touch of comfort and familiarity with your favorite blooms or specialty china. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to shoot at Up the Creek Farms and their new Boathouse venue as our backdrop. This stunning location was the perfect complement to the style we were going for.

We are just loving the blush and gold color palette that is popular right now, and we thought this would be a great way to showcase how to put your own unique twist on this classic look. One of my favorite details of the day was our escort card display that gives guests a sweet treat to enjoy while they find their seat. Not only were the macarons just absolutely delicious, but the shimmer of the sequined fabric made this set-up a gorgeous focal point for a wedding entry. We were thrilled with how everything came together, and just loved the mix of classic details with modern twists in patterns, textures, and design.

From the bride, Lindsey: Tradition, it is something that we thought about with good intentions. When we first got engaged it was all — Which song will we walk down the aisle to? Will we get married in the church his parents did? What will be my something old, something new and something blue? Chris and I gave these traditional thoughts an enormous effort, but just a few weeks in to being engaged we simply gave up. We made a very early decision to throw all “tradition” out the window. In making this decision and speaking it out loud to family and friends, something amazing happened. No one had make or break demands or expectations! We were left to plan a celebration that was utterly and completely us. Fast forward to the week of our wedding. We are in Palm Springs, at my parents house organizing bolts of burlap, DIY table numbers, hand-painted directional signs, crafted paper mobiles and shapes, hand-etched glasses, hand-sewed napkins in different geometric patterns, programs and menus (designed by myself), props we had collected, 100 14″ platters (that we had to buy in order to serve our menu family style), etc into boxes with photographs of their contents, itemized lists and renderings taped to the outside. On top of all that we are packing my parents entire outdoor living room into an 18′ U-Haul and driving 2 hours west to Carlsbad.

We arrived in Carlsbad with what felt like (and very well might have been) an entire 2 bedroom apartment. Fortunate for us, Levyland Estate was ours for the entire week. We choose Levyland Estate in Carlsbad for two reasons. The first being I wanted a garden wedding and my fiancé a beach wedding. Marriage is about compromise right? The second reason was I wanted to choose my vendors and most importantly not have a 11 pm shut down time. The week at Levyland Estate was a tad un-traditional. We took the “engagement photos” we didn’t deem necessary for anything, but to have some really nice photos of ourselves. We went on a craft beer tour the day before our wedding with 25 of our closest friends and family members, including my 87 year old grandma and great aunt. The week was perfect and the weather was so typically Southern California.

We kicked off the night, not with a reception line or a grand entrance, but with my family of 4 and Chris’ family of 4 (bridal party + parents) walking around to each table (8 people) and giving cheers to all of guests. A perfect sentiment for us as all of them were holding the the glasses that we had hand-etched with “cheers” in six different languages, the Thanksgiving before. The cheers brought a roar to each table and an excitement from the ones to come. As we finished the last cheers, the dinner began to be served. The gastro-truck caterer I choose to fulfill my dreams of a family style meal, knocked it out of the park. Guests dug in like they would at home. Holding platters for one another, serving the heavy entrees to each person before themselves with “oohs” and “ahhs” after every bite.

With dinner coming to a close the slow motion video booth became an instant hit. We threw decks of cards in the air, pop balloons with hand folded paper, punches were thrown, hair was tossed and kisses were had. We skipped all traditional dances, first dance included, and started the dancing off by inviting our families to hit the dance floor together. Our craft beer was drunk, the dessert table of cupcakes and signature smore’s was devoured and to top the night off guests enjoyed a taco cart complete with hand-made tortillas. The party continued late into the night with absolutely no cut off time and Chris & I went to bed early in the morning — simply glowing. It was ultimately a celebration for the books.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1. From the VERY beginning decide on the 3 things that are most important to each of you. For me it was food, venue and freedom — to choose any vendor I wanted. For Chris, it was to write the ceremony & vows ourselves, to have some photos taken on the beach and the alcohol. Then we went to each family and ask if they had any expectations or musts that you should consider when planning. For our families it was that my mother wanted to give me away with my father, my dad wanted to give his speech/toast first. Having these conversations and voicing the things that are most important to you before you get too deep into the planning is crucial. 2. This was a request from my father that I think I will tell every bride that is planning a wedding. Choose 3 words that you want to show up on your wedding day. For me I choose relaxed, organized and flippin’ fun. With those words in mind I planned every minor detail and executed a fantastic wedding.

Wedding Music:
I think this was one of the hardest decisions when planning this wedding. I must have listened to 1000 songs and searched, what felt like the entire web, for things that made sense. We didn’t have any first dances or father/daughter dances so I was one hundred percent focused on the ceremony and here is what came out of it…
Guest Seating: “If Not For You,” Bob Dylan; “Better Together,” Jack Johnson; “Yours Forever,” Generationals; “I Found You,” Alabama Shakes; “On Top of the World,” Imagine Dragons; “Ho Hey,” The Lumineers; “I Would Do Anything For You,” Foster the People; “Flower in Your Hair,” The Lumineers
Groom’s Processional: “Saw You First,” Givers
Bride’s Processional: “First Day of My Life,” Bright Eyes
Recessional: “You Make Me,” Avicii
