Romantic outdoor Napa wedding | Photo by Sylvie Gil | 100 Layer Cake

All the romantic rustic chic details Jennifer + Kyle chose for their big day (after being together close to ten years!) sure are stunning, but the fact that they pulled it off while she was finishing up her OB/GYN residency in the Bay Area and he was busy running several California businesses? A huge feat. Their planner Kathy of Kathy Higgins Weddings swooped in to help them pull it off, and Sylvie Gil captured all the pretty bits:

Kathy says, as Midwesterners who have come to love the Napa Valley, its wines and its fantastic weather, it was the spot they chose for their special day. Every decision was made with input from each other. They fell in love with the Black Swan Lake property between St. Helena and Calistoga. It’s lovely, swaying weeping willow trees as a canopy over their ceremony.

The wines were carefully chosen to pair with the Elaine Bell Catering meal and Kyle chose the after dinner Port wines to go along with the dessert bar. Not to mention this mixology bar by Goose & Gander. Clearly these guys know how to entertain!

Event design company Bustle Events (aka the gals behind this incredible wedding) just launched their SoCal HQ, and what better way to show off their San Diego side than with a swoon-worthy shoot at The Rancho Valencia Hotel? After scrolling through this Mediterranean-inspired love story shot by Shane and Lauren Photography, we’re pretty darn excited to have ‘em so close by!

Marina says, The team of vendors was so much fun to work with and helped bring my vision of a romantic, undone, and vintage feeling design to life. The Rancho Valencia Hotel is stunning and made for the perfect Mediterranean backdrop for this shoot.

Native Poppy listened to my vision and knocked this one out of the park. I asked for wild, undone, and a bit crazy with pops of coral, peach, yellow, and lots of wispy greens and she delivered! Her creations were absolutely stunning and really made a big impact! Adding floral to Smore Sweets‘ lemon naked cake really made it stand out and come to life.

(PS See those dip dyed candles peeking through? Marina created them for a simply DIY.)

The Parker Palm Spring wedding | Photo by Scott Clark Photo | 100 Layer Cake

Morning cakies! We scheduled this one bright ‘n early to quell any cases of Mondays out there. Given all the bright colors and big smiles and jaw dropping décor JP + Chance incorporated into their big day it wouldn’t surprise us if a bit of the good cheer walked right into Tuesday too. These two first bonded a their mutual love of travel and their whole wedding was a nod to that love in the form of an epic vacay for everyone involved.

You can see the super fun party in these images by Scott Clark Photo:

Bride JP tells us, We both wanted a destination wedding and California was an obvious choice. We were bringing together friends and family from all over so we wanted everyone to make a vacation out of it. We fell in love with The Parker as soon as we toured the venue. The property is the epitome of an instant vacation: the mid-century modern vibe is unreal and grounds are beyond gorgeous!

From designer Vanessa of Alchemy Fine Events and Invitations:

After throwing around a few different design ideas they opted for a simple ceremony design with a woven macrame backdrop and asymmetrical color florals mixed with magnolia leaves. Brightly colored vases with branches and pampas grass started the aisle way and opted to use the Parker’s brown velvet ballroom chairs verses the white folding traditional ceremony chairs for a pop of glam outdoors. Jenn and her bridesmaids carried beautiful bold bouquets by the talented Luna of Arrangements which were offset by the mismatched neutral dresses the girls wore in shades of nude and rose gold.

Celebrating their dog Vinny somehow was a must, so Vanessa named the bar The Vinny Bar and created this cute illustration for napkins + signage.

Vanessa tied strips of fabric to a steel garden orb to represent the seating arrangements, and each table was named after one of the destinations the couple had travelled to.

JP says, Our first year together we traveled to Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Tulum, Napa Valley and NYC. Through endless food-a-thons, hiking, exploring some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and even one case of Montezuma’s revenge, our love grew stronger with each trip. 

Sounds like your wedding was the ideal way to celebrate!
