Christina + Nathan | Millwick

Christina & Nathan are artists in work and play.  They are both teachers and bring their work home with them.  You will see elements of their craft throughout their wedding day.  It all started with their wedding invitation that they both contributed to.  The green being thoughtfully used as it being a focus color in their table scape, bouquets and boutonnieres - Florist: SEED Floral.  White and black were the main focus which is evident in the images captured by Sarah Layne Photography.  Christina handmade the stone magnets which held the guests escort cards and the table number holders {which were also personally designed}.  They even had an art corner where guests expressed their artistic side on a large canvas that now hangs in their home.

Stacey + Madison | SmogShoppe

What a wonderful way to start off a new year.  Stacey & Madison got married on the second day of 2016 at one of our favorite venues, SmogShoppe.  We were honored to be referred by friends to this darling couple.  The love and admiration for these two was felt every where you turned.  From the wood box succulent arrangements her dad made to the gold painted coffee beans Madison spent hours dipping, the intimate touches were obvious.  Stacey crafted the table assignment geometric chandelier and each of the origami birds which held the guests place cards.  The framed photos of their engagement shoot found at the welcome table, bar and bookcase were breathtaking and truly captured how authentically in love they are. 

As you sit back to look through these images taken by Becca Rillo Photography, I want to give a special shout out to Lea Beiley.  She not only performed the ceremony music, but is a dear friend to the couple and this coordinator.  Some of you may recognize her as my side kick on site as she graces me with her talents from time to time.

Krystal + Russell | Millwick

Krystal and Russell are one of those couples who warm the hearts of anyone who knows them.  They bring cheer where ever they go and are always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.  Their families are much the same.  Krystal is adorably close with both her dad and step-dad.  So much so that she asked both of them to walk her down the aisle and share the father daughter dance with her.  Both were emotional moments of R+Ks wedding day.

Being hands on during the planning process then seeing all of our ideas come to fruition puts goose bumps on my arms to this day.   Krystal works for a well known beverage company and Russell is a musician.  The venue was sprinkled with touches of the couples style and appreciation for what is worth doing.  A common statement made by Krystal, "We have to do it, it's worth it!"  In the images captured by their talented photographer, Kristina Adams Photography , you will see their crafting hand and our design vision come to life.

Maily + Hajime | Adamson House

Maily, Hajime and I met at a local restaurant to talk about all things wedding.  Quickly into the conversation they let me know they were moving to Shanghai.   We got the dates down that they would be in town and set a planning timeline.  She had a connection for a florist who has vintage inventory for rent smartly named Knot Just Flowers.  Together with her crew and a fantastic list of vendors, Maily + Hajime had the time of their lives.

Before you sit back with a cup of what ever you are in the mood for, allow me to point out a few details.  They wanted the California surf and world travels to be a part of the day.  They pulled this off in an such elegant way: the surfboard everyone signed as they arrive, the

Rachel + Eric | The 1909

On a gorgeous rainy day in July Rachel and Eric tied the knot.  Despite the challenges mother nature bestowed upon them they were calm, cool and collected.  The guests were wise to the changes and rose to the occasion.  All of the vendors worked as one to make their wedding day seamless and fun.  The images captured by John & Colette Photography show nothing short of a fairy tale.

Before you dive into the this warm gallery, a shout out has to be given to the couple who introduced me to Rachel and Eric.  Courtney and Scott who I had the honor of being their wedding coordinator the year prior. Thanks to their glowing referral of my services we were a part of this magical day.  xoxo

Karin + Hart | Oak Grove at Saddlerock Ranch

When the Father of the Bride calls to inquire about coordination for his daughters wedding, you know it is going to be extra special.  The love and care he took with every detail in planning their day was one for the record books.  Along with her mom and sister, every detail was thought of from the hand painted design on the invitations to the logo on everything you can think of, from the family heirloom overlay on the chuppah table to the FOB drumming with the Rembrandt Band.  Family and friends were treated to a magical day in the vineyards of The Oak Grove at Saddlerock Ranch

Karin + Hart's wedding was the third in the family in recent years.  The location for their big day was the perfect setting for the mix of champagne and whiskey.  Town & Country Event Rentals built two gorgeously romantic bars which represented the bride perfectly.  The groom had his own whiskey bar and lounge which represented his Kentucky roots properly.  The complete vendor list was an impressive group of some of our industries finest ~ list below the slideshow.
