Malibu vineyard wedding: A + M, part 2

July 13, 2011

Here we are again, continuing on our little journey that is A + M’s sweet wedding. Have we mentioned that we love this wedding to the core? We’re ready to share the gorg details that were happening in their reception so, read on!

The wine barrels provided by the venue + the charming rustic pieces from Found Vintage Rentals, help to create the whimsical and rustic feel that A + M were looking to get with their ceremony/cocktail area.

As guests wandered up towards the reception area in the evening they were greeted by large oak trees with dripping lights and chandeliers. I created two lounge areas and tied together the previous décor with vintage furniture but accented them with gold and mirrored pieces to create a more luxe vibe. We also used a mirrored French table for our desserts with a satin background and chiffon florals. We used gold chiavari chairs for the dinner tables but kept the florals in vintage vases to tie the entire event together. Our wedding planner Nancy from So Happi Together, suggested using an aqua table runner which I loved and I think really made our table settings pop!

The stop motion film we created was a labor of love. We spent every weekend for a couple months storyboarding, shooting, reshooting, and then editing. We both love the film 500 Days of Summer and wanted to create a rendition where the boy and girl end up happy together. We’ve been together roughly 5 years, so we named it 2000 Days… The film starts out with the current day, then flips back to Day 1 (our first date at a coffee shop), Day 700 ( represents 1/3 into our relationship as we share our love for music), Day 1400 (2/3 into our relationship when we fall in love) and jumps back to the current day. We had so much fun finding (and sometimes sneaking into) some of the original locations in the movie. I’ll never forget the fun we had shooting it!

Wow, this wedding was top notch excellent and awe-inspiring! Congrats A + M! We now leave you with their super cute stop motion video!
