Fresh Pastel Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Looking through this rainbow-colored California wedding from Kelty of Steep Street is a sure-fire way to cheer up your day. If you doubt us, take a peek at the bridesmaids in an array of candy-colored hues and that utterly delectable dessert table from Sweet & Saucy Shop. This is a wedding we would have loved to see for ourselves!

From the photographer, Kelty: Kara and Tim tied the knot on the Loyola Marymount campus in Los Angeles. They were married in the Sacred Heart Chapel overlooking the valley, and their reception was held just a few hundred yards away in a giant courtyard. The wedding was such a labor of love, not to mention a feast for the eyes! Bridesmaids in complimentary, rainbow pastel chiffon dresses, paired with alternate pastel bouquets. The bride in a custom gauzy white number with handmade custom blue Marie Antoinette-looking satin shoes. Each table color-coordinated with pastel flower arrangements. Delightful desserts, from a Candy Land display to baked goods and a floral cake to an ice cream sandwich truck that night, which guests enjoyed while playing at the rockin’ photo booth.

Paper goods were designed by the bride’s brother, beginning with a Little Golden Book-themed invitation, color-coded ceremony programs, seating chart, a fill-in-the-puzzle board of their save the date photo for guests to write well-wishes on, ending with beautiful graphic dinner menus and Tea for One gift bags. Such a wonderful mix of childhood-inspired fun and colorful decor… We were kind of blown away by these two, to say the least.

    Thanks for clarifying, Amanda! The guest puzzle is based on one of the engagement photos that Kelty took, that also comprised their save the date…

    Gorgeous. So excited to see this on here. The girls of Steep Street did an amazing job of capturing all the details. Working with Tim and Kara for a year was definitely a labor of love. One of my most favorite weddings from start to finish of 2011. Thank you for the lovely post.

    I love the bridesmaids dresses and the soft colours. The programs and details are amazing. Hats of to the brides brother – obviously a graphic designer and a talented one at that!

    It truly was a labor of love! Looking at these beautiful pictures taken by the ultra talented Steep Street team makes me almost forget all the planning chaos. We probably took on a few too many DIY projects. No blood(thankfully) but definitely sweat and tears were shed while executing some of these projects. Luckily, we had a lot of family and friends helping us along the way. We also had an amazing team of vendors, but no one worked harder on our wedding than my brother who designed all of the paper goods. We really could not have had this awesome wedding without his help.

    Thanks for the pretty post!

    Hi!

    I love your gown! Can you pls tell me what style it is or where to buy? I really like it! I also like your fresh pastel colors. On the guest puzzle, where do the guest sign? Do you have a picture of the puzzle after the event? I just want to see it put together. Thanks so much!

    Lisa

    Love the pastel color palette! The color blocking of the centerpieces are pretty! The first picture under the tree is gorgeous!

  16. Kara

    Lisa – My gown was custom made by Oliver Tolentino so I don’t have a style name or number for it. If you contact his store, they may have a similar style. http://www.olivertolentino.com/

    For the guest puzzle, the guests sign on the back of the tiles. There are magnets on the back of each tile, which allowed them to stick to the metal washers on the big board. There are some more photos of the guestboard details here:

    What a fantastic and fun looking Wedding, with flair! Love every single photo of this, and the dress is stunning. Our heart is on the puzzle place cards because it is so very unique and fun. We also make them in an actual jigsaw puzzle with photos on them and I love the way that the couple used their most cherished photos. Well done!
