It’s always fun to see couples forgo a wedding theme and just go with their gut. Jen + Rob just went with stuff they liked—that was the only requirement. It always helps when you have fab taste and an eye for design. Even better when you’re a talented illustrator like Jen—going sans theme just sort of works itself out. Thanks to photographer Rui of Love is my Favorite Color for sending us into the weekend inspired!

Jen says they chose Quinta do Sanguinhal for its historic beauty and how helpful their planner Ana was in dreaming up an 80-person wedding from another country.

A few vintage-inspired DIYs: They created the menus, invites, save the dates, and table numbers. They also collected all the lovely jars and vases and did the flower arrangements themselves (while Sónia Flôr took care of the bouquets + boutonnieres).

For Lizzie + Caleb, it was all about timing. For years they were near each other without knowing. With a number of close mutual friends, they almost met countless times. Once, two years before they met, Lizzie even attended a wedding he filmed—she was in his video. And they’ve been in the same cities at the same time for work, barely missing each other. When they finally met while with friends at the farmers market, the connection was instant. Exactly one year later, they’re getting married the same weekend they met. Cue happy tears!

Thanks to Michael Radford Photography for sending their Griffith Park e-sesh our way!

Lizzie says, As a wedding photographer myself, it’s so surreal to be on this side of the camera. For years of photographing other couple’s stories, I always wondered what it’d be like, who I’d be with and what we would do… What would be our thing? As time has passed over the years, I’ve learned to cherish simplicity in photographs. So when we were picking our engagement session, my biggest priorities were that we’d have pretty light, a soft background, and each other—simple.

Can we talk about this bouquet?! Lizzies friend Crystal of Heirloom Design House created a market-inspired arrangement as a nod to when they first connected at the farmers market.

Sweet parting words, c/o our bride-to-be:

It’s still true that when you know, you know! I feel so overwhelmed and blessed to be called Caleb’s wife. There’s no one I’d rather fight with. And make up with. And watch The Office reruns on the couch with. And be adventurous with. And be boring with. He is the most patient person I’ve ever known, and although no person is perfect and lasting relationships take hard work, there’s no one I’d fight harder for.

Congratulations you two!

Cake stands | 100 Layer Cake

 

Bountiful closing sale

Big news today, lovelies. BIG. Especially if you live in our fair city of Angels. One of our very very favorite shops on Abbot Kinney, Bountiful, is closing and having a MAJOR sale to celebrate. After 20 years in the same spot, the owner Sue, has decided to pursue her design business full time. Which is AMAZING, though we’ll be terribly sad to see such a magical shop depart from our community.

That being said, we’re terribly thrilled to take advantage of the sale!

Cake stands | 100 Layer Cake

Every. Single. Cake. Stand. will be $40 each. $40!!! No matter the size or color. Same goes for glass cake domes, crystal, china, and more. It is WAY worth a trip to Venice to browse Sue’s amazing collection.
