Kinfolk inspired wedding inspiration | Photo by Love in Photographs | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Kinfolk-inspired-wedding-idea

If you’re a fan of Kinfolk, you’re gonna love this editorial because as our title suggests, it was inspired by that very publication. (We get right to the point around here, obvs.) Aimi of Love in Photographs says, I’ve been super inspired by the lifestyle magazine and their emphasis on thoughtful yet simple design, casual entertaining, and slow living. I wanted to put together a styled shoot with this theme and contacted the amazing Lorraine of Harvesting Love Events—she found all the perfect vendors and styled this lovely shoot. Sold!

Aimi tells it, While planning the shoot we had ideas to use the open space/barn as a backdrop for the reception and found an incredible California oak tree which we hoped to use as the ceremony backdrop—but since it had been raining heavily that week, Lorraine opted to use the inside of the barn at the last minute and put together a simple and oh so romantic setting for the ceremony. Good move, Lorraine!

Doesn’t this couple totally look pulled from the pages of Kinfolk? Helps that Rose + Riley are indeed a real couple.

We love when we ask brides what from their wedding was DIY and they respond with, What wasn’t?!. That’s how MUAH artist Carsen answered, since she’d created everything from hundreds of paper flowers to tassel garlands to the Los Angeles themed centerpieces for her + Darren’s day. They enlisted Carsen’s college friend and talented photog (who captured their cute e-sesh too) Mary Costa and kicked off the day with some adorable pre-wedding photos with the city behind them.

Loved how each of the wedding songs were so carefully chosen:

Our music also had a thread the procession song Somebody To Love by Queen was sung by my dear friend since 7th grade; it represented Darren finding his love in LA. Then the recession song was My Girl by The Temptations, representing that he found his girl. Our first dance was choreographed to Ella Fitzgerald’s At Last to represent my voice in finding my special someone. My daddy-daughter dance was to Louie Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World because it was my late grandfather’s favorite song and one I grew up listening to with him, it marked his place there in my heart and also seemed like the only song fit to dance with my dad to.

C + D chose an LA venue so as east coast transplants they could show off their lives in Los Angeles. Carsen says, We made custom table numbers that were street signs representing different neighborhoods; the head table was Los Feliz because it was our favorite to live in and closest to the neighborhood Elysian is in. The escort cards were hand stamped tags that were hung over an illustrated map of Los Angeles. The succulent aisle arrangements represent the west coast and planting them became a hobby for me during the planning process. We hosted our rehearsal dinner at Golden Road in Glendale and our brunch in our friend’s backyard in Highland Park, so they whole weekend was in a 5 mile radius on the east side of LA which we have called home since 2010.

And one more fun fact: Carsen’s engagement ring was Darren’s grandmother’s from the 1920s, and just so happened to be Carsen’s birthstone AND it fit her without needing to be resized. Ah! Awesome.

Congrats guys!

Coachella and a wedding? Good vibe overload! Taking hints from the best of festival style—think feathers, vintage instruments, boho chic fashion, etc.—Nicole Alexandra Designs + the team below channeled Coachella for the desert-seeking, music-loving couple.

Thanks to Jodee Debes Photography for passing these photos our way!

Obviously there is no better spot to say I Do festival style than at Joshua Tree National Park. The team stumbled across abandoned desert ruins while shooting too. PS: Kudos to Jodee Debes for capturing those Joshua Trees in all their glory.

Indigo Stargazing dinner party inspiration | Photo by Celeste Noche | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Stargazing-dinner-party-inspiration

Did you guys know that The Lyrid meteor shower is this week? The annual meteor shower peaks tonight + tomorrow night (in the early morning hours to be exact), where you can see 10-20 meteors littering the night sky per hour. To celebrate this incredible show, Bramble Workshop arranged a little celestial fête for friends to gather, eat, sip, and stargaze. Pretty cool, right? Celeste Noche has the pics and don’t forget to try the recipe too.

Just the night for a creative cocktail. Navy Skies by Mint and Mirth:

Our stargazing cocktail features Oregon’s finest Crater Lake Rye, a smooth whiskey crafted from 95% rye grain and pure Cascade Mountain water. Its flavor is rich with deep toffee notes and a peppery spice that defines true American rye whiskey. The amethyst color and intense flavor make the perfect sipping cocktail with which to watch the night sky.

Now for the recipe…

Indigo Stargazing dinner party inspiration | Photo by Celeste Noche | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Stargazing-dinner-party-inspiration

Ingredients
2 oz. Crater Lake Rye Whiskey
¼ oz. simple syrup
¼ oz. Sage & Sea Farms Blueberry Shrub
dash of bitters
orange peel

Instructions
In an Old Fashioned glass, add the syrup, bitters and orange peel. Use a muddler to gently press the orange peel to release the citrus oils. Pour in whiskey, shrub, and syrup, then stir. Add a dash of bitters (we used Hella Bitters) and voila!

And how to make blueberry shrub (adapted from “Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining” by Denise Gee)

Ingredients
4 cups blueberries
2 cups cider vinegar
2 cups cane sugar

Instructions
Cover blueberries and vinegar in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3 days. Strain the mixture into a bowl and press berries to release all the juice. Discard the solids. Next, pour the liquid into a saucepan with sugar and bring to a boil, stirring for 3 minutes. Set aside and cool. Keeps in the fridge for 10 days.

We wanted to create an atmosphere of elegance and allure that was reminiscent of the night sky with dark blues and soft white accents. Jessica from Bramble Workshop created the DIY batik runner that eventually became the centerpiece of our vision. With the strong wave of navy on the table, it was only natural for the blooms to be white and plentiful, just like the night sky.

The menu for the evening tied everything together so that the stargazing theme didn’t end with the tablescape but continued on with Ariela’s organic, vegan menu and Mint and Mirth’s “Navy Skies” cocktail to enjoy just before heading out to stargaze at the end of the evening.

Recently engaged cakies, you’ll want to bookmark this color palette: copper and coral mixed with desert hues and wood tones—the pic below by Melissa Jill Photography sums it up pretty well. Actually, all of these golden hour film photos she took for LVL Weddings & Events’ inaugural Arizona shoot (they just expanded from CA to include services in AZ!) have us brimming with spring wedding décor ideas. Real couple Emily & Jeff gave off the authentic romance such a shoot requires; it was a bonus that the chosen wedding attire fit to a T too!

Heather of LVL Weddings & Events tells us, Principal planner, Emily Schiesl, has a love for the Moscow Mule (particularly the copper mug) and the beautifully exotic flower, protea. You will see copper and the bright hues from the protea echoing throughout the tablescape and floral design by Petal Pusher, as well as the copper foil details on the stationery by Idieh Design.

Hanging flowers and a xerographica bouquet… We’re feeling those desert-garden deets for sure.

Sanctuary’s resort boasts incredible views from all angles, but we settled on Paradise Views Lawn to set up a romantic tablescape under a wooden terrace by Petal Pusher, which also acted as a ceremony backdrop. The clean lines and simplicity of the resort played a part in the choice of the Ines gown by BHLDN and menswear by Ted Baker—modern, tailored, and fresh.

A romantic dinner beneath fruit trees sounds pretty amaze right now, huh? Especially when the only thing that separates you and your groom are a big, wild set of florals like the ones Kelly Lenard of Intertwine whipped up. She envisioned an intimate rehearsal dinner at a private estate complete with vintage furniture and elegant tableware. The design goes quite nicely with Lauren Balingit’s dreamy photos, we think…

From Kelly of Intertwine: I felt the space would be perfect for a small rehearsal dinner. The backyard boasted trees full of oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and avocados. Kept private by walls of crawling vines, I saw a laid back, elegant affair adorned with flowers and fruit from the property.

Kelly joined forces with Ali of The Furniture Library for the rentals. Nothing better than taking a few fancy vintage pieces and placing them in a beautiful outdoor setting.

An elegant outdoor color story: soft yellow, orange, and earthy greens.
