Hope everyone’s Fridays are going well! Photographer Ann Imagines sent us this shoot all the way from Moscow and it couldn’t be dreamier. The couple in the photos wanted a little pre-wedding shoot (which we always hear is such a good idea!) so they could print and decorate their space with them on the big day. After scooping up a most heavenly bouquet + heading out to the fields during golden hour, they sure had some pretty images to incorporate.Read More
Happy Friday, cakies! Warning: this Fiji elopement miiiight make you want to start the weekend a bit early. But when you live a busy life like NYC-based James + Lauren do, it’s not hard to see why you’d want to escape the city and jet set half way around the world for your big day. Lush, secluded, and full of romance, these two couldn’t have made a better decision than the Royal Davui Island Resort for their nuptials. Thanks to Kama Catch Me for the swoon-worthy photos + Lauren for sharing their story below…Read More
It all started with a little Los Angeles neighborhood called Highland Park. Claudia of One Darling Day grew up there, so when a friend moved next to Heritage Square Museum, memories came flooding back. That’s when she realized: how great would it be to have a wedding at The Square? Teaming up with photographer Daniel Cruz, and inspired by the color of the year, Marsala, they got right to work…Read More
When Rosie + Evan plan an event together, they like there to be casual sophistication and fun. Which, from these shots by City Love Photography, totally describes their big day. And Rosie’s amaze two-piece floral gown. She’s Associate Creative Director at Trollbäck + Company, he’s Design Director at Elle Magazine, and being design-savvy they were able to pull of lots of polished DIY projects and transform the blank slate that is Gansett Green Manor into a casual, elegant 90-guest fête.Read More
Who here is up for a little early morning eye candy? We always bookmark pretty engagement rings when we come across them (that’s normal, right?), and the list was getting way too big not to share. There are gorgy contemporary blush colored stones, unique shapes, fascinating cuts, and lots of sparkle. Basically, something for everyone, we think! Feel free to take your time with the image below:
We all have our faves, like the insanely unique Bario Neal ring in the first picture and the timeless rose gold quartz ring in no. 7. One could see why we ended up with 17 rings to show ya this morning, yeah? Let us know if you’re feeling inspired by these rings today too!
Friends, allow us to to introduce you to our A-list member Django Foxtrot. Whether or not you’re scouting out wedding music, who doesn’t want to be turned onto new tunes? If you haven’t heard the name before, Django Foxtrot is a group of young virtuoso players who blend true gypsy jazz with a huge range of interesting modern sounds—think anything from Lou Reed to Arcade Fire. Did we mention these guys now available for events in 2016 (private events + weddings all across Southern California are their specialty)? Now a little more about how the group came about…
Django Foxtrot started when talented and accomplished guitarist Nahum Zdybel hooked up with Dart DJ founders Michael David and Jesse Kivel to combine their talents + expertise to create a distinct sound you won’t find anywhere else. As individual artists, they all have such unique styles, so you can imagine the kind of sound you’ll get when they join forces. Really, go ahead and open a new tab with their samples and repertoire list here, if you’d like.
As with traditional gypsy jazz, this trio consists of an upright bass and two guitarists. But… that doesn’t mean they’re not experimental or contemporary. Actually, they’ve been known to perform with various add ons and combinations involving vocalists, drums, violins, and clarinets. It’s really up to each event’s vibe and the specific feeling you’re trying to channel. Lots of possibilities.
