Glam New Years Inspiration

Wedding Design

New Year’s might be a few months off, but we feel it’s never too soon to start poring over beautiful inspiration images full of sequins, glitter, and pizazz. So when we saw this shoot from the team of Lisa Mallory Photography, Lindsey Marie Events, and Flowers by Kim, we knew it would be worth sharing early. Do you love the sparkly bridesmaid dresses as much as we do?

From the designer, Lindsey of Lindsey Marie Events: Hello 2015! I don’t know what could be better than to ring in the New Year with a wedding. For this New Year’s Eve inspiration shoot, I wanted to shy away from the traditional black and gold to show that metallics with a pop of emerald green and orchid can be just as fancy! I definitely did not want to break the tradition of sequins, confetti, and champs, as New Year’s just wouldn’t be the same without some sparkle and bubbles! So romantic to see confetti falling from the sky as the bride and groom toast to new beginnings. So in Love!

Living in wine country, I thought it was only appropriate to host our shoot at Broken Earth Winery since New Year’s is all about the bubbly and some delicious wine! I was so lucky to have the ever so talented Lisa Mallory Photography to bring my vision to life. I had so much fun at Unlimited Events creating the most dreamy table scape. Rosey Calligraphy added to that by creating some astounding paper goods. The invitations were so fun and definitely got the party started. Cake Cathedral continued our sparkle theme with a 3 tiered sequin cake. Flowers by Kim made over the top cascading bouquets, which showed that even in winter Pantone orchid with a pale pink can be in style.

How gorgeous do the bride and bridesmaids look! Their glamourous looks could not have been done without the amazingly talented makeup artist Carrie Marie Artistry and stylish updos from Amy Castaniero. Top that off with a rhinestone bridal gown and mismatched sequin bridesmaid dresses make them truly steal the show! I had such an amazing time with this shoot and a BIG thank you to everyone that participated! Cheers to a New Year and New Beginnings. Happy 2015!

Western Paso Robles Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Precious, precious, precious — this wedding from Stacey Ramsey is that and so much more. Be sure to keep an eye pealed for Rachel and Jon’s wedding video — which is not only incredible, but also edited by the bride and her husband, who own The Sunday Saloon Cinematography.

From the bride, Rachel: Jon and I both knew we wanted our wedding to have a free-spirited vibe where our guests could relax, play and share in our love for the day. My parent’s Paso Robles home was the perfect spot for this. Their beautiful property with it’s eclectic mix of rose gardens, olive tree orchards and a rustic country setting was the perfect background to reflect our style. We were very influenced by the 1969 movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (with Robert Redford and Paul Newman) and we loved the stylized 1970’s take on a Victorian/western period film. We tried to evoke that feeling by mixing elegant antique china with rustic western elements and a dose of 70’s kitsch.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Try to do as many DIY projects as you can handle…they help you save money and are so much fun! Nothing adds character and personality to your wedding like hand made details. We created little mason jar lanterns with copper wire and covered jars with vintage lace for candle holders. Some of my favorite evenings before our wedding were staying up watching movies and making lanterns with Jon and my sister. :)

Also, if you can, try to make your wedding a weekend celebration. Since our wedding was a bit of a destination for our guests (most coming from San Jose, CA), we invited them to go on a wine tasting tour the day before our wedding. We rented a trolley car to take us around Paso Robles and this was the perfect way to kick start the celebration, stress-free. I wouldn’t have traded this experience with all of our friends and family for the world!

Wedding Music:
Since Jon is an amazing singer/songwriter and music has always been a close tie between the two of us throughout our relationship, we literally hand picked every song that played during our wedding. We chose a playlist of songs both meaningful and reflective of the style of our wedding… a lot of folk, old country and bluegrass tunes. The music during our processional was live and we chose Tom Petty’s “Angel Dream”. For our first dance we had Hurricane Roses play their rendition of Ryan Adams’ “Dirty Rain.”

Watch their sweet video by Matt Baca and The Sunday Saloon Cinematography:

From Stacey Ramsey: Rachel and Jonathan put so much thought into all the eclectic details, from handblown antique vases (all different from another), vintage brass, to the GORGEOUS garden variety floral displays, nothing was overlooked. Each guest was seated in front of a different hand painted victorian plate with a horseshoe favor on each. Chandeliers hung from garden bushes, mushroom stools from old tree trunks, and the bride insisted on feeding the farm goats in her gorgeous wedding gown!
