Modern spring wedding inspiration

With the term ‘glamping’ in the title, we already knew the photos Callie Hobbs Photography sent our way were promising. We love the idea of glamping as an activity on its own, so naturally it’s about 100x more amaze when done as a wedding theme. The fact that there’s elegant antique décor + a glamorous bridal ensemble only sweetens the deal. Some of the best glamping inspo around, in our opinions!

The inspiration behind the shoot began with the discovery of 6 yellow taper candles in varying shades that jumped out at a local antique store. I wanted to create a look that was neutral and fresh with elements of jewel tones and citrus accents. The mix of the light woods and soft greys paired beautifully with subtle pops of yellow with lavender accents. The glamping trailer was a neutral backdrop for our couple’s reception offering beautiful lines and wood details, so we wanted to soften the look with lush blooms and pastel colors.

This spread sure looks divine. We hear that Crystal, the bride, is a Paleo chef + nutrition coach who created beautiful, healthy dishes for the occasion.

This shoot proved to be a lovely combination of natural woods and tones paired with lush greens and pastel blooms with varying options of textured and silk tops with the beautiful Gemmy Malouf skirt from Anna Be Bridal Shop.

Agreed—a perfect starting point for an elegant spring soiree too! Thanks to Callie Hobbs for sharing!

Red peony bouquet

Andre works in finance + Tiffanie in fashion, which as it turns out is a pretty ideal combo for planning a wedding. Both involved in every step, she fell in love with the creative process and he was always there to keep her on track. With the help of Rachael of Lace and Likes, A + T pulled off a perfectly moody color palette and modern deets for their big day in San Clemente, CA.

Thanks Megan and Brent of Studio Castillero for the images below.

Tiffanie says, While designing and searching for decor I referenced things in our home, our favorite articles of clothing, and pieces/photographs that sparked a memory from our past. When seeking out vendors we described the tone as dark and moody, modern simplistic with a touch of Spanish romance. Everyone at the wedding kept saying, “This is perfect and so Tiffanie and Andre,” we feel that was the biggest compliment we could have received!

Andre and I were engaged for nine months and a solid six months of that was spent planning! I had never envisioned my own wedding until I was engaged; immediately I knew I wanted Andre to be hands on and that this was going to be a team effort! We started the design process from scratch and incorporated little details that we appreciate and felt important all while trying to keep a simplistic approach in mind.

Parting words from our bride…

Be present mentally the day of! As everyone says something may go wrong, not every detail will be perfectly placed, the weather may not cooperate… But remember the true meaning behind this day. Don’t let things (big or small) or people for that matter get in the way of you and your husband celebrating your love and commitment to each other with all of the best people in your life! Repeat after me… BE PRESENT!

Can’t say she’s wrong! Congratulations Andre and Tiffanie!

Modern Philip Dixon house wedding

C + K’s Venice wedding could easily have been in Big Sur or Canada or Hawaii. They searched high and low for the perfect venue, but it finally hit them that for their big day they didn’t need to leave town at all.

Cayley says, We don’t like commercial, we didn’t have an unlimited budget, we didn’t want to wait two years to hold our wedding; we wanted a memorable but casual wedding that friends and family could really enjoy. Probably somewhere between riding our bikes to the beach and walking to dinner at one of our neighborhood restaurants it dawned on us—why not bring our friends and family to Venice to celebrate at the place we love and call home? We wanted to show everyone our version of Venice—local, casual, weird—so that’s exactly what we did. The ceremony held at our longtime neighbor Philip Dixon’s house surprised all our guests who could not have dreamt up a more impressive hidden oasis, which also inspired the colors of my bridesmaids’ dresses. 

Thanks to Gary Ashley of The Wedding Artists Collective for these shots!

Cayley says, We had a local gospel choir sing Dream Lover for Kyle’s walk down the aisle with his parents and our bridal party procession, and My Cherie Amuor when I walked down the aisle with my Dad. Our first dance we danced to Harvest Moon sung by one of my ridiculously talented bridesmaids, Lucy Keating, accompanied by the Mattson 2. Once we were married we exited to Hall & Oates You Make My Dreams Come True.

Check out the recap by Max and Molly Films below:

In the end, we feel so lucky to have involved so much of our community in our wedding weekend—even our photographer, Gary Ashley, was based in Venice. So all local vendors, friends, and friends of friends made it a very special weekend to share with our families.

Cheers you two! See more from this wedding in our gallery.
