Old World Segovia Wedding

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

From gorgeous bohemian weddings, to authentic Old World nuptials, Spain has it all covered under the wedding sun. When Marta told us about a wedding that was held in a monastery, we knew we had to share it with you all! Marta Machín of Marlett designed an amazing day full of romantic details sure to inspire any couple.

From the event designer, Marta Machín of Marlett: Sara and Manu’s wedding took place in a private owned restored monastery in a village in Segovia, north of Madrid. The groom’s family comes from this village so the venue had a very special meaning to them both. The groom’s grandfather who was very close to him and just recently passed away used to walk from the village to the monastery every afternoon, and his grandson very often joined him.

The bride was very involved with the planning and the design, specially with the color palette. She wanted soft hued colors, mainly peach and cream, with hints of stronger colors. Being a forestal engineer, she wanted something that spoke of her love of trees and gardens. We chose to inspire ourselves in the botanical gardens of the monastery, all tables were named after herbs used in the monk’s pharmacy and we used these herbs throughout the decor, which had a romantic, rustic vibe.

Though held in the morning, the church was filled with candles that created an atmosphere of warmth and intimacy in the empty knave. We wanted to welcome the guests and make them part of the ceremony, and bring light to the wonderful empty space. The bride, wearing a custom made Basaldua silk gown and veil and her grandmother’s earrings entered the church surrounded by candles and paused a moment before continuing her walk along the aisle.

Afterwards the guests moved to the old cloister for the outdoor cocktail and again moved to the monks’ pantry for the lunch. It was the perfect spring day and everyone enjoyed the perfect weather, sitting in the garden after lunch for drinks and partying.

The bride was so mesmerized by the decor that she surprised me the following day by showing up to clean and pick up so she could see and take in everything at a slower pace.

A Breakfast Wedding in Texas

Rustic Weddings

I love breakfast, I love weddings, and I love happy people, so this next wedding from Feather & Twine Photography was a no-brainer. Lauren and Chase styled their Texas wedding on their own, using items and decor found from their years spent thrifting together. This is such a great way to make sure your wedding day is full of personality, we couldn’t wait to share!

From the bride, Lauren: There were a couple of things I knew for sure after getting engaged. First was that I wanted a morning wedding with breakfast. Second, I didn’t want it to be very traditional — or at least I wanted to discard the stuff I find uncomfortable at weddings. Location was a bit more difficult to decide on, until we accidentally stumbled upon Pecan Grove Pavilion in Driftwood, Texas. I knew the second I stepped on the property that I wanted to get married there. A creekside ceremony coupled with the indoor barn pavilion was just ideal, plus their in-house catering company designed a custom breakfast menu based on my suggestions. The menu was so good, featuring brisket and gravy stuffed Texas toast and fried chicken & sweet potato waffles, just to name a couple. For dessert we served donuts and pastries.

Chase and I love thrifting so we decided to do most of the venue styling ourselves. We found fun vintage mugs and displayed them on a beautiful wood piece that Chase designed and his father constructed. We had a “living room” set up with furniture we thrifted to make the space feel a bit cozier. I wanted everything very simple for the tablescapes. We used these neat “sugar molds” (as the antique dealer called them) and cement planters filled with succulents for our centerpieces, along with old bottles and a few daisies. We planted 120 succulents ourselves a couple weekends before the wedding. I picked and put together all of the flowers myself. One of my favorite things we created was the living wall, which was an old rusted mattress spring that we turned into a living succulent garden. We had a team of people (including my groom and his groomsmen) working for only 2 short hours to get the venue set up early the morning of. His parents drove a trailer full of stuff from Dallas to make our reception area look like the magical vintage playground it turned out to be.

The day of was perfect. Filled with so much joy. I wrote the majority of the ceremony and we both wrote our own vows. There was a coffee hour where the guests showcased their mug pick. And of course we had bocce, corn hole, croquet and washers under the pecan trees. There was dancing and speeches, but we stayed away from grand entrances, first dances, bouquet toss/garter and cake cutting. For the exit, we sped off in the same truck his parents left their wedding in. It was the best day ever. Relaxing, simple, joyful, and fun. It was exactly as we had imagined and more.

Vintage Singapore Wedding

Vintage Weddings

Photos by:

We were so delighted when bride Jia sent us her wedding from last year. It isn’t often we get to feature weddings from such distant lands, so we’re extra-excited to share this gorgeous wedding from Singapore. Jia, an ardent lover of the 1950s and all things vintage, incorporated this love into her traditional-yet-whimsical reception. Thanks to photographers Joseph from BitterSweet, Fengzhi from This is It! & Charity from Charity Goh Photography for the wonderful images!

From the bride, Jia: The wedding theme reflects our personalities and it was a whimsical vintage one. I love vintage, especially the 1950s. The church ceremony was a solemn affair, which followed the traditional Chinese “gatecrashing” involving the groom and groomsmen trying to overcome “obstacles” prepared by the bridesmaids to enter the home of the bride. Dinner was held at a beautiful colonial house at the Botanic Gardens.

Inspiration was gathered from many many different sources, some of them from the movie “Up” and most of them using recycled items and handmedowns from my family.

The corsages on the groomsmen’s vests; bridesmaids’ lace hairclips, ushers’ badges were all handmade. I love buttons and cheery colours. :) We also made a picture gallery with cheap frames sandpapered to give them a rugged look, vintage lace cloth as a table runner complete with old photographs of our past to give our guests a peek into what life was like before we met. I do a little bit of copywriting at work, so I came up with the table names – associated with our love life, the little signs at the photobooth and desserts table etc.

Buzzworthy Events

Hey there! I’m Ashley, a wedding planner based out of San Francisco planning weddings around the world. Creating an event is something that I value. Not only is an event purposeful but one should be well crafted and beautiful. I don’t believe in sacrificing one element for the other. I believe that purpose, craft, design, and strategy are all cohesive elements to produce a successful event. Weddings are so much more than just a celebration or a pretty tabletop, there is connectivity and flow. From these an opportunity for you and your guests to be enchanted, to be a part of an experience you’ll carry away with you. Have you ever been a part of something where you were swept away by your current state that you forgot whatever else was going on in the world? Where it feels like you’re part of something that only matters right then and in that moment? Creating that experience comes from the energy and love put into planning the event.

Lets be friends. No, seriously though, lets!

I do far more than just plan weddings. I travel, I cook, I laugh (a lot), I play, I hike, I challenge myself, I take risks and I am constantly growing. I love people and adventure. I try new things. I am curious. I have high standards. I listen. I create. I do. Take the time to get to know me and I’ll do the same for you. I am highly intuitive with people and take on personal missions to make your wedding the most suited to you and your dreams as possible. The planning process can be overwhelming and overstimulating. Let’s face it, no one wants to do it on their own, so let’s work together!

I am available for weddings in California and worldwide. Fun fact, I am certified by the board of tourism in Mexico to plan and work there. I have spent years visiting the Riviera Maya + Tulum as well as other regions in Mexico, like Baja California Sur. Tulum is hands down one of my favorite places on earth. If I am not in San Francisco planning weddings and being social, you’ll find me on the beach at BeTulum, Coqui Coqui, Papaya Playa, or exploring the coast lines in Central America.
