Classic romance with a modern spin and hints of Italian elegance… That’s what Jennifer Bradshaw Events had in mind when designing the set at this San Francisco private residence in Pacific Heights. The home is so beautiful on its own, when you add all the elements Jennifer did, the inspiring details sure start to add up.

Thanks photog Edyta Szyszlo for sending these pictures!

For the bar I created a ‘his’ and ‘hers’ element so I matched Veuve and champagne coupes with Saison Du Point Beer and Biere steins. I stuck with the muted tones of peach, ivory, and gold and added pops of tangerine to match the glow of the pillar candles and play off the gold accents in the other rooms.

I love garlands for any tablescape because they add an element of modernity and wilderness, and paired with David Austin Roses you cannot ask for anything more lovely. The muted sequin linen was an amazing foundation for the magic of Frances Lane—the dishware and rose goblets added the extra bit of charm. I love the combination of peach, blush, and gold and wanted those colors throughout the shoot—all pretty and pink.

This time of year we’re betting that everyone is ready for some lazy, warm days in a tropical paradise. Perfect time of year to pack your bag with a new suit (and not much else), and jet off on an adventure to Kauai. It’s all easy living on island time, and your vacation wardrobe should be too.

Kauai honeymoon style | 100 Layer Cake

Stay on the quiet north side of the island at the St. Regis Princeville, where our friend Katie of EA Honeymoons can book you an amazing stay, complete with free breakfast for 2, a $100 hotel credit, and complimentary upgrade whenever possible.

Take day trips to hike the Kalalau trail along the Napali Coast, kayak in sea caves, and dine in the charming surf town of Hanalei. Circle ’round to the other side of the island for spectacular snorkeling and a visit to the stunning Waimea Canyon. Or just lay on the beach and drink Mai Tais. Can’t go wrong.

1. Classic sunnies
2. Organic sunscreen from Nine Naturals
3. A simple beachy tee
4. Shima cuff from Misa Jewelry
5. Silk bedroom romper
6. Scarf/wrap for après beach and cooler nights
7. Perfect white kaftan
8. Opal Dream ring
9. Hawaiian print shorts
10. Sun hat
11. Leather sandals
12. MCMC perfume oil
13. Leather-handled tote
14. Beach read
15. Sexy new suit

My Flowerbox Events really went all out for this one—a floral draped altar, cascading greenery around the venue’s entrances, a garland-adorned mantel, and a floral chandelier—to name a few swoon-worthy touches. Accented with gold and captured in Krista A. Jones’ rich and dreamy photography style, the team sure took soft romance up a notch.

When the girls behind Kruse and Vieira Events were designing for the Bow Ties & Bubbly event at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club last month, they kept the table neutral to let those blooms shine. That meant blush details, silk ribbon, and watercolor paper accents. Kinda in love with all the texture here!

Wooden cross back farm chairs from Select Event Rentals balanced the elegant vintage elements on the table, creating a relaxed intimate vibe. Soft linen napkins and table cloths acted as a neutral base for the vintage elements and decadent florals to stand out creating the perfect organic, yet timeless setting. The sweetheart table was set apart by a cascading floral chandelier and chiffon draped across.

Intimate Garden Wedding | Photo by Kristyn Harder Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Intimate-Garden-Wedding

Isn’t this hairstyle breathtaking? An updo is such a good choice when you’re wearing something like the Waterfall Dress from BHLDN. Those silk buttons! This entire ensemble really encompasses D + B’s small garden wedding. The intimacy allowed them to write little notes to each guest, connect with everyone, and snag the right venues. Everything was as timeless as that dress—for $13k in under five months, too.

Thanks to Kristyn Harder Photography for the images below!

The bride’s favorite elements of both Reader Rock Garden in Calgary + their reception and catering, Open Range Restaurant: I liked that both places didn’t require any decorating. The garden was immaculately maintained and already had a gazebo on the main lawn. The restaurant, open range, was very rustic inside, but having ate there a couple times before, it was definitely the food that made it our top choice.

Bonnie says, Our aisle song was Knocking On Heaven’s Door over the piano, although I don’t think even a quarter of the song played, I basically ran down the aisle to Dan. We never got a formal first dance at our wedding so a few weeks later I lit tea lights all around our kitchen before Dan come home, we opened a bottle of our favourite champagne and danced to What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. This was a good fit for us as all of our best dances take place in the kitchen!

When you’re talking California rustic elegance—the kind inspired by rich foliage, layered textures, the outdoors, and wedding gowns with a touch of glam—there’s no better venue than a 100-year old barn nestled among alfalfa fields and almond orchards. The sprawling ranch location was a tribute to the bride + groom’s upbringing + family traditions and the classic beauty of the American west that Brooke Merrill Photography captured below:

Floral + event stylist Lotta of Mint Design mixed up a dreamy palette of deep merlots, ruby reds, peach, and pinks to complement the a earthy, vintage vibes.

Brooke says, The foliage-rich tablescape was created using various types of eucalyptus, hanging amaranthus, pink hypericum berries, garden roses in various hues, pomegranates, ranunculus, lisianthus, fuchsia anenomies, wisteria, purple snapdragons, and pepperberry.

Fashion stylist Kim Lawson chose two swoon worthy lace gowns from the 2015 Watters Bridal collection to outfit our classic bride. The exquisite detailing, plunging back silhouette, and glittering embellishments added the perfect amount of glamour to this rustic outdoor setting. Kim styled the groom with a classic take on the traditional black tux. The groom wore a traditional white 10-pleat tuxedo shirt, black slim-fitting suit, and charcoal grey button down vest. The deep wine-colored tone of the groom’s crushed velvet bowtie added a perfect pop of color. To finish his look and in keeping with the tradition and style of days gone by, the groom wore polished black cowboy boots underneath his trousers. 

(Remember her + Mint Design’s pretty bridal looks from this post?)

This amaranthus-draped cake. Le sigh.

Other antique elements that made this shoot so special included an antique steamer trunk used as a cake table. A salvaged mantel easily transformed into a glamorous bar by adding gold mirrored trays for displaying cocktails, elegant crystal decanters, an aged silver-plate champagne bucket, and a beautiful 1920s vanity mirror.

If you aren’t already mentally preparing yourself for the event that is The Cream, better get started! Every year we are blown away by sheer talent we see, inspiration we get, and utter F-U-N we have at The Cream Los Angeles, as curated + produced by Bash Please. Remember the macrame hangings from last year? The floral installations? The silent dance party?! (If not, you can see it all in our recap). It’s that time again, March 15th to be exact. Even better, this year they teamed up with Wanderable for a super cool giveaway…

Cream wedding event LA

This year’s inspiration board is a surprising set of neutrals, and given the rad crop of vendors already announced, we have a sneaking suspicion that the color will not be missed!

As if that isn’t exciting enough, Wanderable is behind this year’s dance off giveaway. They’re a new kind of wedding registry for those who value *experiences* over things… hint, hint. They’ll be offering the winner a trip somewhere amazing. Need we say more? Well, maybe just that the giveaway is worth 5k and that there are a couple of very impressive locations up for consideration… You’ll just have to wait and see!

So snag your tickets fast. This event always, always sells out. Check out photos from past LA Cream events in these posts: 1, 2, 3, & 4 and then go get your tix… They’re on sale now so don’t wait!
