31 Jan

First, let’s say that we LOVE the Ojai Rancho Inn. We’ve been ourselves a number of times and it’s so sweet and funky and fun, just like Ojai itself. This wedding shot by Gary Ashley of  The Wedding Artist Collective, and planned by the bride, her sister and a friend (!!) totally embodies the spirit of the town and the little inn too.

The entire event was really a collaboration between the couple and their friends and family. Starting with their invites and save-the-dates, both designed by good friends. And continuing on through every part of the party – flowers, music, make-up and hair, the venue itself. Might as well take advantage of creative friends if you have them!

Mostly they wanted the party to feel like a romantic backyard family style BBQ. They definitely nailed it, if you ask us.

They made sure to celebrate the bounty of Ojai too, with lots of nods to citrus and the outdoors. Even the tables were named things like “Clementine” and “Tangerine”.

Great Gatsby Roaring Mid-20's Party | photo by Rachel Manning Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Ashley of Sugar and Soirees designed this fun black white & gold party for her 25th birthday. The inspiration started with a black & white dress she needed an excuse to buy (don’t we all!), and grew from there.

The party was small, with just her family and friends. They had lunch and watched The Great Gatsby, while munching on popcorn she served in those cute black & white popcorn boxes. And of course the decadent dessert spread!

Art deco Detroit, Michigan wedding | photo by Jeffery Lewis Bennett | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=67518

Let’s start by sharing that this gorgeous couple is actually having FOUR weddings. Yes, four. It sounds crazy, but do you know what? It totally made sense for them and was the only way they could celebrate with all the people they loved in different parts of the country. This Art Deco wedding was their first, and their “official” wedding, inspired by all the things they love about the roaring 20’s and art deco periods.

As Rachelle was planning this wedding, she was actually still living in NYC, before the move to Detroit. Because she didn’t know anyone in the city or anyone who had been married there, she relied soley on the internet for everything. The one thing she KNEW she had to have (after hours and hours of research) was photos by JLB Photography. It was the one big splurge in all the rest of their party planning, it was she felt totally worth it. We totally agree.

The rest of her planning was pretty budget conscious, down to doing her own hair. She did it herself in only 15 minutes! So impressed, Rachelle. It’s gorgeous and perfectly fits your glamourous theme.

She found her beautiful scalloped, beaded dress at an evening gown boutique, which fit perfectly, and paid only $400. Nice!

As a surprise to Stephen, Rachelle walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of “Hail to the Victors” (the Michigan fight song). It was his favorite part of the day.

When we were asked to create a styled shoot using Kate Spade New York‘s lovely line of dinnerware, a few things happened. We were 1) beyond thrilled to use such an inspired home decor line in a shoot, and 2) instantly fell in love with their Castle Peak dinnerware collection. Modern, geometric, stylish – perfect inspiration for a dinner party hosted by a trendsetting bride for her most fashionable bridesmaids. Gorgeous photos by Erin Hearts Court helped us tell her story in a particularly beautiful way.

Naturally she would send out the most exquisite invitations. So to set the tone for our dinner party, Bliss & Bone created a stunning invite suite of dark leather, gold, and marbled accents. Anne Robin‘s calligraphy tied everything together is a perfectly sexy way.

How excited would you be to get that invite in the mail? Hand-lettered leather belly band… yes, please!

Of course the party wouldn’t be a party without a little bar. Love the mix of gold, black, and pretty ombre fringe from Geronimo… and the faceted vase and Larabee Dot decanter fit in perfectly. And, how amazing are those marbled balloons?

And then of course there’s the dinner menu, courtesy of Taste of Pace. Super swanky and sexy, just like the ladies in attendance.

Some of the delicious bites on the menu:
Scallop ceviche, finger lime, trout roe, micro cilantro
Pumpkin gnudi, brown butter, fried sage
Pork rilletes, pickled shallot, parsley, paper crostini
Pumpkin mousse, chai whipped cream, pepita cookie crumble

If only every party was so expertly catered!

We loved alternating slate and white accent plates from the Castle Peak collection, for each place setting. And the matching serving platter would be gorgeous on it’s own for every day or special occasions.

Can we all agree that agate coasters with gold calligraphy are kind of amazing? We loved playing with textures and subtle patterns, by pairing geometric dinner plates with the black leather dots linen from La Tavola.

Every stylish hostess should have a fun serving bowl, even if it’s just for popcorn. Especially if said popcorn is being served with champagne in the cutest polka-dot glass!

We wrapped simple florist vases with patterned paper from Paper Source to add more pattern and playfulness to the table.
