With day jobs as production manager at Jenni Kayne and COO of Apolis, Brooke + Shea’s impeccable style isn’t too surprising. But it turns out, these two also run Meet The Foleys, their event + design studio specializing in styling, florals, and stationery. Ahh—now we see why their mile long DIY list looks anything but! See what we mean when you peruse the images by Raya Photography below…

Now, that DIY list…
Shea and I style and plan events through our company, Meet The Foleys, and my mom and I have always loved decorating together, so it was a great combination. We sourced all of the silver lanterns and blue and white vases for the tables during the months leading up to the wedding. We designed all of the stationery and paper goods. The photo backdrop was a few hundred crepe paper wedding bells that we strung together and hung in the photobooth canopy. One of the biggest feats was a group effort: Shea and I, along with our parents, hand-painted the blue and white stripes on custom slipcovers for all of the market umbrellas used during the cocktail hour. We also custom made all of the white burlap runners and striped napkins for all of the guests. The cross used as a backdrop in our ceremony was made my Shea’s dad, a contractor, using reclaimed wood.

Brooke loves the clean + classic look of stripes, so that was a given for the design. They paired them with the lush venue (a family friend’s home) and white flowers with a blue and white accent. Opting for this instead of big arrangements kept things more relaxed. Wouldja guess they had over 1500 tulips flown in for the occasion?! Such beauties!

Parting words, c/o our bride:

Shea and I have similar taste and wanted to keep the focus of the day on our marriage, not on a flashy, one-day event, so it came together very naturally. Our parents, family members, and the owners of the house were unbelievably helpful and supportive, which made the experience a joy, rather than a stressful six months. For us, the crafting, building, sourcing, and organizing were not just tasks to check off our list. Getting to plan the wedding with Shea, my mom and dad, and Shea’s parents was so rewarding; it allowed us to grew closer as a family, spending time together knowing we were all working toward such a joyous union. 

Cheers, Brooke and Shea!

Think coastal California vibes. Modern touches. Sunset Magazine meets Dwell, if you will. All bits that Megan of Enjoy Events Co. tells us went into this intimate wedding design at the historic 100-year-old Brock Schreiber Boathouse in Inverness, CA. Megan says, I was with Sheryl + Jordan during their entire wedding process and we collaborated in planning their celebration.​ It didn’t hurt that they had amazing style and wanted something a bit more different than your typical wedding! Megan also recommended Abi Q Photography to document the day, and her style naturally fit with the warm, intimate space they created.

Since it was their second marriage, they wanted it to be more about celebrating with family and experiencing Inverness’ natural beauty. ​Sheryl walked down the aisle to Such Great Heights by Iron and Wine​ and Jordan and his sons walked out to Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot​​.​

Megan says, They wanted to treat their guests to a true Point Reyes experience and did so with a fresh oyster bar, Cowgirl Creamery cheese, and not to mention a whiskey bar. The ghost chairs paired with the farm tables created the perfect juxtaposition along with Edison bulbs displayed ​overhead for lighting.

Shotgun Floral Studio dreamed up these centerpieces of tillandsia​,​ grass, ferns, and flowers. And aren’t the ghost chairs throughout another unexpectedly fitting choice for a modern coastal feel? We say yes!

Rustic Moroccan wedding inspiration | Photo by Katie Beverley | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Rustic-moroccan-wedding-inspiration

How pretty was this morning’s wedding? Feel free to take your time pouring over all the vibrant colors + patterns in this editorial by Katie Beverley too. When Kimberly of The Dainty Lion walked onto this old train car she was instantly drawn to the rustic setting, and wanted to set loads of color + bright décor against it for an east-meets-west design. Kimberly says, I immediately envisioned a story of two opposite worlds colliding and creating something incredibly beautiful while still maintaining their own identity.

Kimberly of The The Dainty Lion explains, I was so mesmerized when I found this venue that I was then left dreaming about it for months, hoping to find my way back. When I did come back, I brought with me a talented team of artists to create a wedding look that none of us had ever seen before. The western façade of the Ranch is inimitably playful and a rare gem that I think let everyone’s creative minds run rampant. This shoot was a true collaboration and therefore turned out to be even more magical than any of us could have imagined.

If our bride’s darling fit ‘n flare gown tells you anything, it’s that this wedding sure was pretty (hello, lace and tulle!). With 300 people in attendance at Leah’s childhood home in Alabama, Leah and Caleb simply wanted a classically romantic day spent celebrating with their guests. Thanks to Simply Bloom Photography for sending these light-filled photos our way—such a perfect fit for L + C’s wedding design!

Leah, on their wedding inspiration: Simple, classic and elegant. We wanted everyone to feel like they’ve fallen in love with their loved ones all over again. It was at my childhood home on the lake on lake Martin, and I am a very sentimental person and love everything about that place.

Their wedding stylist Janna Brown Design Co. + Leah’s mom Karen (who loves event design) facilitated all the planning and design during their eight month engagement. Basically, Leah got to walk in, see what they’d put together for her, and have the best day of her life. Did they follow through or what?!

If you want to get creative with your shoot, what better way than to start with an inspiring space? Salt Lake City’s CUAC provided just the contemporary background—with expansive white walls contrasted with colorful abstract portraits—photog Chantel Marie needed to kick off a series of edgy, avant-garde bridal scenes. Oh, and there may or may not be a crazy cool ombre purple cake involved…

The bold bridal look (which Rachael Ellen Events created so that it could easily translate from bride to ‘maid if you prefer) + oversized florals were balanced with the softer table design.

Totally loved the concept behind this one too—to show brides not to be afraid to get a little daring with their wedding design. If you want to make a statement, why not? It’s your big day!

Props to Chantel Marie and the team below for sending us into the weekend with these creative ideas!

If you love coastal weddings or events with a timeless feel you are in for a serious treat on this Friday. A + C both work at The Soda Bar in San Diego (she’s the general manager + he’s the talent buyer, not to mention a drummer in two bands), and they chose The Thursday Club, a 1920s venue that overlooks Sunset Cliffs, to say I do. With white walls, wood floors, and that killer view, it only seems fitting that the team at would To La Lune Events whip up something just as magical for the design.

Thanks to Aimee The Hearts Haven for the photos!

Their theme? Modern simplicity with vintage touches. Angie says, We used lots of neutral colors to create a simple clean décor but added vintage accents (flatware & champagne glasses, wooden chairs, and marble serving platters) to bring warmth to the space. We used our music to help establish this vibe too. Our DJ played all 50’s & 60’s vinyl. We were also inspired by vintage French style, which is my family heritage.

To La Lune Events will paint a picture for ya: Plenty of Petals brought in greenery reminiscent of Angie’s affinity for the French countryside through the stunning table garlands + vines that hung whimsically from our custom created wood escort card backdrop. Pops of soft peaches + blush shown romantically throughout all the lovely bouquets, floral arrangements, and garlands.

Angie, on planning in five months: My grandma is 95 and didn’t think she would be up for long distance travel much longer so we rushed things to make sure she could be there to celebrate with us. Having her at the wedding was so important to us that it was totally worth the hurried planning but it’s pretty challenging to have such a short timeline! A lot of vendors and venues were already booked when we started our search but in the end we couldn’t have been happier with all our vendors and the location!

One of their fave memories was when the music got the whole room dancing. They had put together their own wedding band with Cory’s current and former bandmates, who performed 50s + 60s tunes. Angie’s dad, also a musician, joined in and sang a song too!

Cheers to Angie + Cory!
